2010 Review

Aargh.  I’ve put it off for a few days, but I guess it’s time to reflect on the past year.

It’s a bit depressing thinking about all that I hoped to accomplish last year – compared with what I actually DID accomplish.

Dog Goals:

My dog goals took a real hit.  Lots of work travel, plus lack of motivation at times, meant that I didn’t achieve nearly what I’d intended to. 


Maggie enjoyed her mostly-retired lifestyle.


Ziggy smiled his way through some good Rally scores,
and continued to thwart my attempts to make him a keen performance dog.


Highlights from the year:
  • Ziggy got his RA title, with respectable scores.
  • Maggie & Ziggy won obedience brace class both days of the National Specialty
  • Denzil found a good “retirement” home with my parents.
  • I (crazily?) added Rip to the pack.

Denzil found a great new home, and LOVES
being the center of attention.


I went on vacation and came home with a puppy.
He was living only 60 miles from my parents...how could I resist?


Personal goals:

Again, didn’t quite accomplish what I would have liked – particularly in the area of weight loss (sigh).


At least I got to visit some lovely new places....


Highlights from the year:
  • I logged more than 80,000 air miles!
  • I read nearly 40 books – the most I’ve read in one year since becoming a parent -- (I like to read when I’m on a plane…)
  • I visited 5 countries other than my own, and acquired a stamp from a “new” country in my passport (Spain)
  • I met all of my dog training/education goals 


Yes, 2010 is over.  Now I'm mulling over what I’d like to accomplish in 2011.  More about that next week (perhaps).

  2. 80,000 air miles? wow. All I can say (as someone who isn't all that crazy about flying) is wow!

  3. Thankfully, I don't mind flying - it's the only time I'm left alone to read in peace and (relative) quiet... I have become a big fan of compression socks, though.
