Hi! I’m India!

I’m just here living this awesome life with my dogs. I’m a backcountry pilot, structural engineer, author, and avid yogi/swimmer/hiker.

Human interaction stresses me out, so naturally my only form of expression is blogging, so welcome to 65 Whiskey! While I do ramble about a plethora of things, my life and my travels revolve around my dogs. So I’m going to unapologetically write about them, okay?

I promised myself I would never do anything halfway, and this blog is me documenting that journey. Learn more about us here.

PPD Certification: Week 1

PPD Certification: Week 1

It was blistering hot outside, and I was the only one who wore a long-sleeved shirt. 😁 Teenagers pranced along the trails at the park toward the river and shook their heads in horror like they witnessed me twirling nude under a full moon. Nude? I don’t know about that…but you bet your bum I twirled ...

Evaluations

Welcome back from a week of website maintenance! Although, that didn’t seem to deter you all from finding other ways of entertaining yourselves…and you know exactly what I’m talking about. If you need a hint: it starts with a D and ends with a W. I’m very impressed you all found out who the Dog Whisperer ...

DW's Fifth Obedience Class

DW’s Fifth Obedience Class

The dogs were NUTS today. Literally nuts. And Jasmine's in heat. Ugg. I don't know if I should have brought her to class because she was incredibly inattentive and, yet again, she drooled and panted over Thor. I'm sure she was just being annoying to the other dogs as well. I'm sorry, guys... The Dog Whisperer ...

DW's Fourth Obedience Class

DW’s Fourth Obedience Class

I've had Jasmine for 7 weeks now. That's crazy. As for training, Jasmine and I missed the third week of class. She was vomiting up the entire contents of her stomach, so we stayed home and she slept. Good news, though! She's actually playing with the tug toy now! 🤸 She doesn't prefer it as a ...

DW's Second Obedience Class

DW’s Second Obedience Class

The Dog Whisperer seriously doesn't wear any bright colors. The only time I've ever seen him in anything that depicted life was the day I met him, and he still glowered at me. Today was no different. I kept my eyes on his—you guessed it—black shoes and Jasmine did everything he said. One of my old ...

Jasmine's First Class with the DW

Jasmine’s First Class with the DW

May 18th was Jasmine's first legit class with the Dog Whisperer. He's as intimidating as the last time I saw him. I'm glad I brought my sunglasses today so he wouldn't notice me staring at his shoes. But unfortunately, he talked to me, so I just stared at his ear like I do with my optometrist ...

Day 18: Update on the Savage Yeti

Day 18: Update on the Savage Yeti

Well, I’m officially registered for this obedience class! Yay me! The exact title is “Basic Obedience for the Personal Protection Dog.” I really like the setup of this class. It’s six weeks of obedience with a heavy focus on protection work…so, building upon existing drive and some different commands/skills necessary. The class has up to ten ...

Day 14: Obedience

Day 14: Obedience

As of today, I've been with Jasmine for two weeks. She's still obnoxious, but she's…different…from when I first brought her home. First of all, she hasn't jumped on anyone for the last week, she hasn't tried to eat my other dogs, and she knows her name, sort of! This is unbelievable progress. She still gnaws on ...

Day 12: Tame the Yeti

Day 12: Tame the Yeti

This weather is so weird right now. It's 33 degrees outside in spring! We have to put blankets over our flowerbeds so the tulips won't DIE. In the mornings, Jasmine wears this gray cropped sweater like JLo. I've been calling her "Jenny from the Block," and she's responding to it well. At least it's not blistering ...

Day 3: Beast of a Beauty

Day 3: Beast of a Beauty

"Tatiana" seemed to be a mouthful for everyone I encountered. That, and the poor thing wasn't responding to anything even her original registered name. I woke up with serious determination today. Yesterday was hardly better than the night before when I first picked her up. She was nervous, skittish, and getting used to her new surroundings ...
