Derek told me the other day that he saw somebody from high school that we both know. We actually know his whole family and Derek seeing him gave me a brilliant idea. I know … I know … all of my ideas are brilliant, but this one shines with the brilliance of a bazillion diamonds. Yes, it IS that good!
Anywho …. this man and his family raise and train border collies for herding. So I e-mailed them and asked if Emily (the animal loving twin … not Beth, the animal “ew gross” twin) could help with the training and care of the animals a few times a week …. AND THEY SAID “YES” !!!
I told Emily about it this morning. She is so excited. Derek and I are thinking that her training, taking care of, and being around that many dogs might make her think twice about wanting one so bad …. of course with our luck, this plan will completely backfire and she will want a dozen Border Collies. Oh well … we tried.
