This ‘N That Thursday

Today we are joining 2 Brown Dawgs for their This ‘N That Thursday’s blog hop!

This is what she has to say about the hop,

This 'N That 3

Ah where to start today’s post…well first I guess I will talk about the show Maia and I went to last weekend. We arrived nice and early so Maia could get settled in, this helps her to get over her jitters Winking smile I fill my pocket with plenty of bait, also known as treats, so we can walk around and have people pet her and treat her. By the time it is our ring time she is usually pretty settled but then we walk in the ring and she gets just a tad nervous. Just our luck this time we were first in the line up, so that means when we move around the ring Maia thinks all the other dogs are chasing her. She is getting better about this but it will just take practice, a lot of practice! Now with that being said, over all she did very well, I can see so much improvement in her since we began last year.

In this photo you can see I have her stacked pretty good, her front legs are under her and the rear is stretched back so the hock and pastern are perpendicular to the ground; and yeah she has her ears forward!

And then the judge approaches to do his exam and that begins my post for tomorrow so come on back and I will tell you all the things wrong with this…

Now on to Titan, he looks amazing and Dave is doing such a great job training him. My brother and I arrived at Michelle and Dave’s house and Dave brought Titan in, at first he strolled in pretty nonchalant and I have to tell you my heart sunk, I thought oh no he forgot us! But then I started to talk to him and he came to life, leaping and jumping around rubbing on us; he was beside himself and I was a happy camper. He took turns between me and my brother getting plenty of rubs and loves!

They showed us a little basic retrieving but we were having such torrential down pours it was hard to do much; he was able to do a couple retrieves and Michelle got some really great action shots.

  1. Thanks so much for participating in TNT. 🙂 I bet you are happy that Titan is home. Michelle took some great pictures. Will you be entering any hunt test this year? Flyways test is in May.

    Maia looks very nice in the ring. OK so I am intrigued about what comes next…. 🙂
