    • School is going well

      End of the third week.  Whew!  Im exhausted.

      I had four cockers (all fat, with warts, and bad skin) and a long haired doxie (very sweet girl) this week.

       I got an 85 and 1/2 on my first test.  I drew a blank when

      asked to describe the life cycle of the flea.  (15 pts.) I got half a point for writing something...lol   

      My teacher says my scissoring of feet has improved, but I am still terrible at scissoring. Cry

      7  weeks to go

      Scissoring takes time to master. When I was being taught, I was instructed to scissor the hair off my arms. Yes, my arms. lol  Give it a try, you will learn great control and a steady hand.

      LOL.. since chemo I dont have any hair on my arms, maybe a patch of fuzz, but I will try it.  Thank you for the tip.  Cool

       

      Oops! 

      Well mostly, it's to practice scissoring smoothly, without gouging the coat, or your arm when practicing.... :)
