A DAY AT THE PARK
Yesterday my brother and I took Maia and Titan to Sleepy Hollow for some fun! This is a state park near me and I love that name don’t you, reminds me of the headless horseman. Since the park rules say dogs must be on a six foot lead my thought was how the heck are they going to be able to stretch their legs if they only have six feet, so…I multiplied that by about 8+ and gave them 50 feet, found a secluded area and hoped we wouldn’t get caught
I worked on Maia’s recall, she did great and it helps being able to reel her in so she caught on quick, listen or get pulled in, so soon she started coming to me pretty quickly.
Titan had some bumper fun and I worked with my brother on the proper commands and how to throw the bumpers for him. I kept the training very short because I wanted them to enjoy the beautiful day we had here just exploring and running around, it was in the 70’s, thank you Indian Summer!! They both had a great time sniffing all the good smells and Titan even watered a tree for the park! I didn’t get a whole lot of good photos but here a few random shots…
Hmmmm wonder what’s over there…
think I will go check it out!
Now that is a goofy face!
Oh yeah a good rub is just what I need!
Genetics 101 Part 2
Jan commented “I’m always fascinated to see how some pups seem to be copies of the dam and others of the sire.” This is very true and it is also true that it could be the grand parents that you see in the pups and that is why I study the grand parents of the pedigree. My mentor always says that you are likely to get the grand parents coming through on the pups so it’s important to know what qualities they have before doing your breeding. I tried to find some photos to show the similarities between sire and son and dam and daughter, these were the best I could come up with without staging a photo shoot of the four of them, but I think you can see how much Maia and Titan look like their parents.
So that wraps up our Follow-up Friday, if you would like to join in with the blog hop use the link below.
