Unfortunately, she turned the camera on, set it down, and then stuff happened and she had to deal with the present crisis instead of working with the dog on camera right then. And it recorded to the end of its little tape: the blank wall, and barking dogs. She then turned it off, right enough, but didn't notice (she's not, er, technical) and proceeded to "record" the before, and the after, on "but I am out of tape!!!"
So she located another SPCA dog in need of training, and tapped me as her videographer.
We got down there at a respectable hour given that she was up until 1 reading fic I'd pointed her at (Verity, a new remix of some old fairy tale scenarios) and playing with Google Calendar.
She worked with the dog. I taped.
Dawn called on the way home. Yay! She's been hella busy.
The 'before' video was uploaded with no problems. Hooray, me. I did have to make reference to the manual that I found online, however.
The dogs are both feeling better. They had recent vet trips. The poodle had a cyst removed from the back of his neck; Deacon got painkillers for his arthritis. Deacon merrily humped the poodle last night, so he's feeling a lot better. (The dogs appear, in the immortal words of my aunt, to be gay for each other. Though this doesn't say much considering some dogs will hump anything. Even if they're bitches, like that one guide dog puppy bitch who would try to hump Deacon's face when excited. UR DOIN' IT RONG.)
We went for a walk with the poodle on the beach. Sand is hard.
It's Sunday, so I called my best friend. Yay.
My aunt and I watched Wall-E. That was fun. I really don't keep current with movies anymore. When she brought in the video selection, I was able to unerringly pick out which videos she'd picked vs. which ones Spintherism had picked.
raranax got back in tonight. We immediately began chattering about this and that, which resulted in some interesting vaporware spun off from Uncle Davy's suggestion that I set up a porn recommendation site for the clickthrough. Note: the cheese board should not be used as a Spanky! Spanky! paddle for the poodle. (The Lab is OK though.) (No dogs were actually disturbed in this process, although the paddle should be washed even though it was only applied very lightly.)
