Wow GSDgirl, you make ME tired! I know how much work there is with the dogs, horses, etc.... and the garden too, not just watering and weeding, but bringing it in and fixing it. I still assist the local dog trainer with classes, both basic and advanced obedience training, so I get to play with a rottie alot. I also have a shiba inu that has gone thru the classes - she was and still is very very shy. she was almost comatose when we first started with her as a puppy at less than 6 months. but she passed her canine good citizenship test. and yep, your husband sounds alot like mine, they just don't get it. mine also thought that one of the guys he works with should have walked 2 miles into town in a blizzard to work because he would have. good thing I am just as stubborn, and when I absolutely can't do something, I don't. although a couple years ago I was on a trip to Colombia South America with compassion, and on the last day there in the morning while we were walking past a drug lord's house, I stepped on a stone and rolled my ankle, of course I kept walking on it all that day to go site seeing and then running on it the next day with airplanes, etc... a month later I finally went to the doctor and he said I tore 2 ligaments in it, ooops, and yes that is one of the spots that aways hurts on me. It helps when people at bible study take a look at me and know how much pain I'm in and comment on it, then of course hubby is a little more understanding. Have a good weekend everyone.
