Made of Star Stuff

sagan made of star stuff

My birthday present this year is something wonderful.  A friend of mine from graduate school alerted me to a well-bred West German showline German shepherd that was available in Southern West Virginia.

We were looking for another male to add to our breeding program, and although I am fully aware of how closely related all German shepherds are to each other, we needed another line that was health-tested to mix into ours.

We have named him Sagan, WRF Made of Star Stuff for Darqueside, and his sire is Ajaks od Slankamena, a top winner in Serbia.

His mother was bred in Serbia and then imported while pregnant to West Virginia.  He was well-socialized and trained in West Virginia, because his owners, who run a boarding and training business, were going to keep him as one of their personal dogs.

Sagan stacked

He was initially named “Edward,” but I always wanted to give a German shepherd a science nerd name.  And since it was my turn to name the dog, this one became Sagan.

I have had him a few weeks, and I have to say this is the best dog I’ve ever had. He is biddable and smart. He is gentle and kind.  He loves kids.  He loves me. I know that he will eventually mature into something more serious and loyal, but right now he is the happy, goofy puppy who fears nothing.

The way he looks at me is the way a smart dog looks at person. He has become my office dog, and he lies by the door while I’m teaching my remote students. He knows that if I rise, the next thing will be a walk or a chance to play with the jolly ball.

He knows no evil. He knows only the joy of his lion paws tearing through the green grass.

I have never had one of this type before.  He is a sound moving dog, though not as flashy as our American dogs, but he possesses a profoundly good temperament. He is very similar to Quest, our 100 percent American male.

He is the best birthday present I have received in a long time, and he’s a very special dog.

I am absolutely certain that this is the breed of dog I was always supposed to have. I know there are lots of crappy German shepherds out there, but a good one is an awesome dog to have.

Bohemian Bedrooms

10 Beautiful Bohemian Bedrooms
1  |   2   |   3   |   4   |   5   |    6    |   7   |   8  |   9   |   10   

Truth be told, we need to be focusing on the freaking kitchen and kitchen only right now, not our master bedroom. But I came across these images I saved a couple of years ago and wanted to share. Even after all this time, I’m still in love with every single one of these spaces. I don’t care if the boho “trend” is played out, I’ll always love it. (You can take the hippie girl out of the mountains and plant her in the Chicago burbs, or however it goes…) I actually like the way our bedroom has slowly come together, but it needs some finishing touches, and these spaces are inspiring me to bring them to life.

品川美容外科クリニックの安全対策からわかる告訴・訴訟問題

 

ひと昔前は、人間は自然なままがいいといった意見が多く、

美容外科クリニックを利用しているというと、

軽蔑を受けることもあって、多くの人が美容外科の利用を隠していたものです。

 

かくいう私も品川美容外科クリニックを利用していますが、

利用を始めたころは、おっかなびっくり、

こそこそした気持ちで利用していた記憶があります。

 

しかし最近はプチ整形といって、

気になる部分だけ整形することで

施術時間も短く体の負担も少なくできることから

気軽にプチ整形を行う人も多くなってきており、

わたしも美容外科の利用をとりたてて隠さなくなっています。

何より品川美容外科クリニックを利用してコンプレックスを解消したせいでしょう。

ずいぶん気持ちが楽になって感謝しているくらいです。

 

しかし、美容外科クリニックの利用者が増える一方で、

裁判になったトラブルも聞かれるようになったため、

美容外科クリニックの利用については、クリニック選びのため、

インターネット上で情報を収集したり、判例を読んだりしたものです。

 

大手クリニックではたくさんの施術が行われる分、

小さなクリニックに比べて告訴・訴訟問題が起きやすい現実があります。

そのため、美容外科を利用する側のわたしたちは、

情報収集がかかせません。

 

わたしが利用している品川美容外科クリニックでは

施術前のヒアリングや不安な点の解消、

そして、施術後のアフターケアが充実しているという話を聞いたことが、

わたしが品川美容外科クリニックを選んだきっかけです。

 

聞いた情報があっても、はじめての利用の時は

もちろん不安がありました。

ただ、クリニックに行ってみて、

しっかりとわたしの抱える不安にも耳を傾けてくれる姿勢や

丁寧な説明を聞いてみて、

品川美容外科クリニックの仕事の丁寧さを実感しました。

アフターサービスも良く、

施術後の診療は無料で利用することができますし、

施術について保障制度も設けています。

 

大手クリニックなどで聞く問題に対する安全対策を

しっかりされているのだとわかりました。

 

そもそも施術を受ける側として、

問題になるようなことは絶対いやですし、

しっかり話を聞いてくれて

実際の施術はもちろん、アフターケアもちゃんとしていることは

うれしいことです。

 

 

小規模か大手かは関係なく

品川美容外科クリニックのような安全対策やサービスを

どの美容外科でも取り組んでくれれば、

わたしたちも

安心して施術をお願いしたいと思いますし、

告訴・訴訟問題なんてかなしい出来事は

減っていくはずです。

 

調べてもなお不安を抱える、

過去のわたしのような人が

少しでも不安を緩和して

気持ちよく施術を受けられるようになることを

願うばかりです。
