Of course, part of my problem is that although I nominally only have 3 grad students, I am working with 2 more on an independent study, an undergrad on an extended summer internship, and a post-doc. Which is a great deal in some ways, since out of those, I'm only paying for the undergrad, but it's also a time management challenge.
Today we went to "Puppy Kindergarten" orientation. This time we were supposed to come without Soba but next Thursday she's coming with us. At the end, people asked questions about their puppies and it's nice to see that many of the same problems that we have (right now biting is a big one) are things that others deal with. And actually, hearing others reminded us that, as frustrating and slow as this training experience may seem, we've come a long way in two and a half weeks. For example, we've actually had two dry days in a row!
