Intimidated Badger

Happy New Year everyone and I hope everyone had  a great holiday season. I am sorry that I have not posted anything recently and I would like to say to that I have just been really busy but to be honest and I do try to  be as honest as possible, I mean that is one of the qualities us badgers are known for, but I have been a little lazy and also I have been having issues with inspiration.

 

My creative side has kind of dried up of late and I am also having trouble focusing on what I am supposed to be focusing on and even on stuff that I want to be doing like writing in general. I am blaming the heat partially because I, like my Huffflepup, don’t like the sun and it don’t like me. I will also blame my anxiety issues because well that will probably play a factor cause it does make me distracted to a point.

 

Last but not least is the fact that as I have mentioned I am doing some studying at the moment and the last subject that I did we had to do a role play in which we had to act out a meeting we arranged and then do the minutes for and have it recorded and added as part of our assessment. Now with my anxiety issues and my issues with nervousness and public speaking I found this incredibly intimidating and nerve racking and it drained me. We then went into the next topic which also I find intimidating so much so that I have not even started doing it (I should be doing it now) and it is due next week.

 

The subject it Project Management and I actually have an interest in project work though admittedly managing a project has no interest to me what so ever. I like the idea of working on a team with a particular goal in mind and being there from start to finish but actually managing other people and giving instructions just intimidates me.

Hufflepup

Hufflepup

My DC binge has come to an end, sort of. I am still reading the comics but I have finished the animated series now and Animelab has finally released the last of the dubbed Fairy Tail so I am watching that instead, maybe twice depending on when I next see my niece who likes to watch the show as well. I also getting an urge to binge Glee but I blame my iPod for that. My anxiety is still playing up but I am doing PT sessions through work and am hoping that they will help with that.

The topic for this post is actually my dog which I mentioned in my first post. She is a Ruby Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Lady Ariel but she has tons of nicknames which I will go through later. My mother named her as my mother has a thing for naming our pets after Disney characters so she became Lady after the Cocker Spaniel from Lady and the Tramp and Ariel after the Little Mermaid. My mother owns a Ruby Dachshund named Winni-Pooh Schnitzel.

I bought Lady, though I was not there to pick her up. She was born in Gatton in December of 2012 but she and her litter brothers and sisters were moved to Gailes in late January due to flood waters due to Tropical Cyclone Oswald. I was in Bundaberg at the time helping with Community Recovery due to the same Cyclone. It had been a pretty bad day and the news of her purchase definitely brightened my day.

She was the biggest of the litter and is larger than most Cavies that we know of. We actually joke that she is a mutant. She is kindest natured and sweetest dog that we have ever owned. She is not a barker so is not a good guard dog. Actually we tend to think that if we ever get robbed she would probably let them and wants pats from them. We have Winni and my sister’s dog, Steve (yes, that is his name) for guard duty anyway.

She loves a good scratch and rub but it has to be when she wants it and she thinks she is royalty. I truly believe that she understands what we say and I have regular conversations with her. She is not much of an outdoors dog but loves a good walk and/or car ride. She hates other animals, other than the ones she knows and tolerates those that visit the house.

She loves food and especially a good bone. I believe that if she was human she would either be a chef or a food critic. She enjoys sleeping and snores like a trooper. Actually Snorlax (after the Pokemon) is actually one of her nicknames. Others are Ladybug, Buggy, Chewy (after Chewbacca because of her fur), Donatella, Princess (she loves bling of any kind) and lately I have been calling her Chook or Chooky but I have been calling all my nieces, nephews and dogs that lately and of course Hufflepup.

I am not just saying that either because I am a Hufflepuff. There is a sorting quiz available that lets you sort your pets. I actually sorted all three dogs and they all came up in different houses and all three houses actually suit them according to the description given. Lady is a Hufflepuff, Winni is a Gryffindor and Steve is a Slytherin.

She absolutely hates the heat and that is the reason why we have to get her groomed. She actually has two cooling mats to lie on when the weather heats up. She is strange in that likes having baths and going to the vet. She has made several trips to the vet. She has have her declaws removed and she dislocated her knee and had to have an operation to fix it. Luckily she is insured and so is Winni, who hates the vet and is not fond of baths.  She occasionally watches television and she is a DC fan like me but is more of a Superman fan than I am.

In my opinion there is not better dog than my Lady and I wouldn’t change her for the world.
