Smattering Of Bella And An Acronym Rant

I guess annoying office people have hobbies, too. Some of them play agility with their dogs on weekends. You know the people. Those that take the last cup of coffee and don’t make more. Those that chuckle whilst giving you a little punch on the arm or slap on the back.
(Never trust a chuckler, they are totally bad news).


Those are the same people that say things like “paradigm shift” and “thinking outside the box.” They also like to abbreviate when ever possible. Not sure why. Does it make them feel busier? Like, they just don’t have time to actually say something?


Does it make them feel smarter because people have to constantly reply with a “what the hell are you talking about?”


Unless you have a job that involves the government or guns or the government and guns or you at least wear a uniform that is remotely intimidating and authoritative you don’t need to acronymize everything.


If you are playing agility with your dog on the weekends you totally have time to say Reverse Flow Pivot.


You have lots of time to walk a course AND say serpentine.


You can write BC, but don’t say it. They are Border Collies.


And if you are one of those RFP - serp - thread - BC people, just know that if I overhear you I will totally be calling you names in my head.



  1. cool photos BTW this is the BDVOAT (Best Dog Video Of All Time)

  3. Great pictures, agree with the comments ;-)

    Wizz :-)

  4. This made me laugh...I can hear all those people walking the course while talking in agility slang. Maybe I should make up some of my own and throw them out there.

  5. WTF are you talking about?


  6. "WTF are you talking about?"

    HAHA. You have to get a dog and start spending all your free time running around stuff made out of PVC to fully understand.

  7. You know what I hate even more? The "border" people - the ones who say things like "nice looking border" to me.

    I also dislike the Starters level handlers who try to give me advice when I'm walking a Starters level course, having just blown the competition out of the water with my ATCh dog in the other ring - advice I did not ask for! And then they won't shut up either. *grumble*

  8. Hahaha, I so know those people. I don't know why "turn your shoulders THAT way" has to have a fancy name on it at all!

  9. I love the photos seems like my dog. He never wants to stay still for any photos i take of him lol
