    Yeah suturing is hard, they dont teach you much in first year, its mainly guess work, theyre getting better at clinical skills though, our suturing class was amazing the other day, i can do like 5 types of suture now or something crazy.
    Still revising...

    awww, i feel for you bex and more importantly for me lol. How am i going to survive a month in cumbria?
    Also on suturing thought i'd add... its not the easiest when you're a wee bitty hungover. (sorry about being such a useless pain this morning bex). Still thats my own fault. I should get the hang of this 'going out on thursdays is bad!' thing really.
    Also because its an entire waste of the next day. I have done no revision whatsoever today. Although did do other useful stuff like visit a yard as ive got to find somewhere for my horse for after easter. Right studying starts properly tomorrow!

    As if you haven't heard of streaming/downloading eps, as if! In my day, young people never made excuses about not watching episodes.

    back from crufts. It was actually realy interesting talking to some of the breeders. The majority of breeds actually are healthly. For examply a lot of the mountain dogs havnt changed in hundreds of years because you never get extremes when breeding them so as there are no extremes to breed to you get get exageration of features.
    On the other hand, one breed that does not look good is the show german shepard. They are so low on the back end and can hardly walk or run well. It just doesnt look healthy. Also the pugs and pekinese with the squashed faces. Obviously all breeds have problems, but alot of the breeders i talked today dont inbred most of the time and pride themselves on things like good hip scores etc. Although i did ask a rodensian ridgeback breeder about what she thought of the BBC program and yeah i wish i hadnt cause she was very old fashioned in her ways and would not shutup or let me get a word in.
    I saw talked to the owner of the bernese mountain dog best in breed. they are such well manered lovely dogs!
    I found alot of the breeders realy keen to talk to you about there breeding and ideals of the dog. And in my opion alot of the breeders are suprisingly open to change, of course you get the odd old fashioned one but you always will. We had a talk at the start and the kennel club are working to change the standards but you have to go slow becuase otherwise alot of people will be driven away from the kennel club and then they will have no power over the breeders. They are persuading judges to choose dogs more suited to working and have less exagerated traits etc. For example The best in breed clumber spainiel was not a typical winner as may of been seen in other years.
    Having said about the german shepards the one now showing in the pastrol group that got best in breed is alot higher standing than alot of the dogs i saw there but still fairly low, so it looks like change could happen.

    The agility was amazing and i wish my dog was as good! some of the small dogs go sooo high over jumps. Videos coming soon on facebook.

    Overall good and interesting day.

    I once stayed at a bed and breakfast with a St. Bernard and it jumped on me, knocked me over, and wouldn't get off. It was a giggle. Then I met a Bernese when I was skiing and it was lovely and I sat in the snow with it for ages. It was the shop's dog and I just used to go to the shop to say hi to it 'cause it was always there.

    lol dont worry bex, its what 7.5% for physiology (and 5% for biomolec)
    yes guess who did all the maths today instead of revising hehe. I am majorly screwed for these exams, but all responsibility lies with me, not anybody else. Just printed out some past paper questions to have a go at, realised i couldnt do any, so came on here for a bit.
    Now going to make dinner and then draw pretty pictures of random metabolic pathways. Hopefully something will stick (even if the only thing that does stick is the blu tack used to pop the pictures on my wall)
    Now if i could just stay awake to revise that might help. Meh *crawls back into corner*
