Today we are joining our friends Jodi over at Heart Like A Dog and her co-hostess Kari, from Hound Girl for Follow-up Friday, the blog hop that lets you wrap up your week and leads you right into the weekend.


Thanks Jodi!


This ‘N That Thursday

Thank you for the kind words regarding Hailee, she is much better now and when I asked her yesterday if she thought she could handle Riva for conformation training Saturday she said “OH YEA” she is a trooper!


Wordless Wednesday ~ Ready-Set-Go

Paws and Pedals asked…

“What’s on the collar? Some sort of training device??”

Thank you for asking, yes this is a training collar called an e-collar (electronic collar). This is a wonderful tool when doing our retriever training as long as it is used properly. A dog must be collar conditioned before you can use an e-collar, using collar corrections on lead for obedience commands the dog already knows; this teaches the dog the invisible connection between the dog and the handler that the collar provides. As with any training tool it is wise to seek the assistance of a professional to assure you are using the equipment properly. I am very fortunate I have the privilege of working with great trainers.

He is Jodi, and I am so excited to see him at a hunt test. I hope to be entering him in the next couple of months. He is such a great boy Smile

“Is it raining?”

tarynft asked…

“What’s floating on the water?”

Sand Spring Chesapeakes you guessed it, cottonwood blooms. They were everywhere that day, I don’t think I have ever seen that many and so thick before. It was just like snow in 70 degree weather Winking smile

  1. I can’t believe i guessed the cottonwood bloom. i haven’t ever see that many either. have to go back and read earlier posts to see whats been going on at misty shores. been busy with premier so haven’t done much reading.


  2. LOL I posted a picture on the blog’s FB page of cottonwoods falling like snow. I am so sick of them already. They have been flying here for at least a month. They sure are thick in your picture. 🙂


We would love to hear from you!!
