Go ahead- toot your own horn for a second. What is something that you can honestly say that you are good at and are proud of yourself for?

I can sew. I just made myself an awesome 'Queen of Hearts' costume for fancy dress.

What are you good at?

Sewing is something I'm all thumbs with. My mother sews everything, but it's not a talent I ever picked up on. As for myself, I'm good at teaching people about pets, including training them.

I love to laugh, but can't remember a joke to save my life! :) And I'm certainly not witty. Wish I were, though. The only TV program that can make me laugh is "Who's Line Is It, Anyway." And I'm a lover of groaner jokes. (I'm fond of the "stupid stuff.")

I think training an animal is incredibly rewarding. With the help of a good trainer, we took an unsocialised, untrained poodle and turned him into a lovely family dog who can now greet other dogs without incident.

But sometimes training the humans is the difficult part. When we were training our dog to not jump on visitors, I'd warn them before they walked in the door "ignore him, turn your back to him, pat him when he's doing the right thing". And the visitors would say "oh, that's OK, I LOVE dogs" and let him jump all over them. Aargh. We did manage to get most of the jumping out of him, but there's still 30seconds worth when a visitor walks in.

If I had to do it over again, I think I'd not let the visitor in till they agreed to go along with the plan! I hate being so bossy, but I wouldn't know what other way to go about it.

Cooking is so rewarding, isn't it. What types of food do you particularly like to make?

I sometimes think I'd have to do far less weight maintenance if I didn't like cooking and food so much. But I have a real weakness for cookbooks. I have to make sure I get as enthusiastic about the healthy food as the unhealthy. And learning to not go back for seconds as I get older.

Last night I made spaghetti with salmon, dill, parsley, capers, lemon juice and olive oil. Delicious and nothing to feel guilty about. However, there is still that pork belly sitting in my freezer.....

My dogs are spoiled. We have no human children, so it's fun to not only teach our pets, but to also enjoy them. I have a pitbull and 2 pitbull mixes and that breed has tons of energy, so they like to "bounce off the walls." :) They do mind well whenever it's necessary.

I used to enjoy cooking, but not anymore. I do like to if I'm having guests for dinner and I like to bake. (I think I'm a darn good cook.) As I like to say, I only have a kitchen because it came with the house. ;)
