Q: While you were teaching in Connecticut I showed Kerryn how to make your 7-inch Carrier Basket. Teaching is a lot of work and I’m not even good at it! How do you do it?
Eric: How do I do it? Ah, well first lesson is learn from your mistakes. That’s all I’m gonna say.
Well how did I do?
I wasn’t there and won’t know until I put on the rims and really get a closer look. But from the picture you showed me, it looked good for someone who never made a basket before. I’m sure you showed her all the shortcuts and everything NOT to do when teaching a newbie how to weave a basket.
Not funny. But you’re probably right.
Q: Did you hear that the winner for the Terrier Group of the Westminster Dog Show was the American Staffordshire Terrier? Just like Jaxson!
Eric: Well, Jaxson is half that and Chesapeake Bay Retriever. But I love it. Am-Staff’s are great dogs. Should’ve won the whole thing.
Q: You must’ve enjoyed bonding with Jaxson over your long early morning works. You don’t do that at home. What’d you two talk about?
Eric: What did we talk about? Well, he doesn’t talk. But I said a lot of things like “Stop pulling… get over here… stop sniffing that… stay over here… hurry up… that’s not your toy… watch out for that car… this isn’t your house… no we aren’t going in there…”
Q: Speaking of dog toy, I see he brought home a new one. How is he able to always spot a discarded dog toy no matter where we are?
Eric: He’s got some kind of radar. And some may or may not have actually been discarded. We will never know.
Q: What aggravated you this week?
Eric: Me packing a little bit yesterday and then Jaxson whining all day because he thought we were finally leaving. So annoying.
What? He whined for like four hours. Try listening to him whine all week when you are gone to a workshop! And you just got done saying he’s a great dog!
Eric: Well, he definitely has his annoying moments. That’s all I can say.
