we voted. i’m nervous.

We went to vote at Nathan Hale MS around noon today. There were a lot of people there, but no line at that time. It was pretty efficient—we got there, checked in, got our ballots, filled in the dots, submitted them, stopped at the bake sale (Stanley got some Joe Biden Oatmeal Cookies). We met a beautiful rottweiler on our way to the school (a whole half a block away), what a sweetheart dog! I voted “no” on the constitutional convention proposition (if the Catholic Church wants it, I don’t ... there’s only one reason they’d want it and that’s to change our state constitution to ban gay marriage) and “yes” to let kids who are going to be 18 by election day vote in the primaries. And straight Democratic—including telling Chris Shays (R) it’s time for him to go.

I’m going to be nervous about the outcome unless it’s very clear that O won, no challenges. Ideally, it’ll be a landslide. In the Senate, too.

The puppies reviewed Dog-Friendly Dog Training by Andrea Arden. They peed on it.

The housebreaking is going slow. About 90% where they’re supposed to go—so it’s improving a lot. They’re piddling outside a lot more now, but about 50% of the time, they wait until they get inside to go poop. Maddening!

It’s hard to get any work done today. Very hard to concentrate. I’m impatient for results to start coming in.

  1. This is not about the race it is on potty training your dogs.  You have two so each is giving the other permission to poop.  Our most recent dog an Irish setter, Pete’s cousin sent us from Ireland, was bound and determined to poop in the house. Our other dog was no help at all as he just slid backwards.  It was the hardest year of my life when it comes to training but I crated our Irish setter if she was not with me she was allowed in the den with the door shut with me.  She could stay out side as long as she wanted and was complimented on her efforts outside for an entire year.  I was determined to not deal with her poop.  She now does her business outside and would not dream of having an accident. She now has complete freedom in the house. She still loves her time in the den with me and sleeps in her crate.
