    When, while getting undressed for the night, you pull unused poop bags out from inside your bra because your show skirt didn't have pockets...

    When Your Bosch Dishwasher starts your Kitchen on Fire...and you grab all 6 dogs...and Pray and then Thank the LORD you trained your dogs to...Two side heal...and March the entire gang out to the safety of the Barn with 3 dogs healing on your left and 3 dogs healing on your right...all while trying to get 911 to answer their phone.... Run back in and put out the fire yourself by soaking dog towels and throwing them on the flames ...and using more water from your Big Dog water pails....and have the fire out by the time the Police and Firetrucks arrive.... Still saying my prayers ....that my dogs, house and I are wonderful (kitchen not so cute).

    When you spend 5 hrs online researching dog foods then 2 hrs driving around town to see what's available locally and then back to the computer to check on what you found b4 settling on a food.

    ...when you're sitting in a large grass seed field, in the pouring rain, when it's 33 degrees out, throwing dead stinky ducks, and the guys working on the irrigation system ride by on the tractor and look at you and comment about "that looks like a tough way to make a living", and I didn't have the heart to tell them I had taken a vacation day from my "real" job to be out there training...

    Is it worse when the residents know your name and wave when you pull up?

    When you know more about what food your dogs eat (and have eaten) than you know about ANY human food
