Questions Part 16

 Which of your life passions have been put on-hold to currently live in the lifestyle? 

Training the dogs had been put on hold almost completely.  I trained working stockdogs (herding sheep,cattle, even ducks), and trialed them, for years.  Now, I'm just not interested in traveling, and Master has never really gone with me on those trips, so the training went on hold too because I lacked motivation.  I talked to him about this a lot, and it was making him a bit sad, that I was giving it up, so I asked him to help me get back on a training schedule, at least back before the fields were too snowy to work in.  So I was doing a bit more with the dogs last fall, and it was good.  I'll start up on my schedule again when spring gets here. 

What is one thing you think your readers would be surprised to learn about you? 

Probably that five years ago I couldn't hardly bring myself to say "cunt" "cock" or "cum", much less write a whole blog about sex.

 Are you able to spend ANY money freely such as a weekly type of allowance? 

I don't have any kind of allowance.   I have pretty much free rein on necessities such as groceries, gas, and things for the kids that they really need.  For anything a little more expensive, anything optional that is more than a few bucks or for eating out, I have to ask.    

 What are your pet peeves in general (not necessarily related to M/s lifestyle) 

My big peeve is pet stores that sell puppies.  They come from the worst kinds of places- puppy mills- that treat animals horribly.  That is probably the big one- that people buy those puppies and thus they are the ones supporting this abysmal practice.  Adopt a shelter dog or buy a puppy from a good breeder where you can visit their home and see how the dogs live. 

 What is one of your favorite songs or quotes?

I really like the words to this song:  Lifes a Dance.

Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow
Don't worry about what you don't know
Life's a dance you learn as you go.

It sums up a lot of things for me and about me.  Right now I mostly follow, but there are still times when I have to step up and lead others besides my Master.  And for sure I'm always learning as I go.

Thank you so much!   

And now I must head off for my beating.


  1. What do you think about Breed specific laws? I have an American Pit Bull Terrier who adopted us (stray) and she is the sweetest dog ever, all dogs are capable of biting...I just hate the breed specific targeting certain breeds. Any thoughts?

    1. I also hate breed specific legislation. For one thing, it is far too much government control on individuals, and for another thing, it is completely wrong headed. Any dog can bite, from Golden Retriever to Pomeranian. I also have met soooo many sweet Pit Bulls that I consider them a great family dog, in general, depending on the individual dog of course.

      My breed, Australian Shepherd, tends to be a protective one. I have several dogs that would not hesitate to defend their turf, and I like that about them. The same dogs would be loving all over you if were an invited guest, though. They know the difference.

I have been working really hard to get the kitchen finished this week.  You know that kitchen project we started last summer and then it sat...
