House Guests

This week is pretty busy as we welcome our house guests, Trail and Bitsy. Yep that’s right we have five Chessie’s in the house! For those new to this blog, Bitsy is Maia’s sister and Trail is Bitsy’s adopted brother; he is technically Riva’s and Cheyenne’s nephew. They will be here for the next month while their mom and dad are on vacation.

They have stayed with us before on several occasions but you never know how first meetings are going to go when it’s been awhile since everyone has seen each other. But it was like they were never apart, the older ones hang together and the two young ones were running around like wild girls!




Cheyenne would not stop barking at me until I took her picture, she’s such a ham!

Pretty girls!


  And Riva had a lot to say about the whole thing!


My visit with Titan was great last week! We did some training with all the dogs at my friends Dave and Michelle’s, so that totaled eight dogs. Some of the dogs had doubles and some had singles. Everyone did pretty good…well Titan had a little brain fart when he saw me out in the field, but he was quickly corrected and redirected by Dave. Even though he didn’t go right for his bird he didn’t forget where it was and as soon as he was back on track he went for it and brought it right back to Dave.

He’s got it! You see that person in the background…well that’s me freezing my patootie off! Note to self, when training bring an extra coat and gloves in case the weather turns colder Winking smile

  1. Thanks so much for participating in TNT. 🙂

    You sure have a house full, and for a whole month!

    Sounds like you had a nice training day despite the cold. Very nice pictures.


  2. The girls are very lovely and so is Trail. You are going to have your hands full but it should be entertaining. Glad you had a nice visit with Titian. Those were some great action photos. I’m with you, I would be all bundled up too. I hate the cold.


  3. What fun!!! Everyone looks great and getting along well. Trail has an unusual look for the camera, not sure what he is saying! Titan look at that keep and enthusiasm he is going all out. Michelle got some great photo’s. Have a fun month 🙂


We would love to hear from you!!
