She says…

It’s a little of this and a little of that and everything in between…


We were able to get some training in last Saturday, it was a beautiful day and we had a great time visiting with friends and having a nice lunch. We even did a little conformation work, I will just say Hailee and Riva need quite a bit of work Winking smile

Mikey June 15, 2013 (9)

Mikey, he belongs to friends Vivian and Tom.

Titan taining June 15, 2013 (7)

Okay, try as I might I could not get a good shot of Titan, this boy is so fast that by time I found him in my view finder he was already heading back with his bird, hence the butt shot!

Violet June 15, 2013 (6)

Violet, she is a young dog but was on her game Saturday.

As you can see all the dogs were working in some cover but all did very well and were so eager to work. It was Dave and Michelle’s girl, Dutch, birthday so we brought a box of biscuits for her and shared them with all the dogs. Hailee made sure Dutch received extra, she is very fond of her.

This is them a few years ago; don’t know why I didn’t think of taking a current photo.

Weekend fun

This weekend we will be out of town doing the Judges Education seminar, you can find info about it here We have participated with this event for the past five years now and it is a great opportunity to help train our future judges. I hope I will be able to get some photos this year since I have my helper with me. Hailee is super excited about going, this will be her second time attending. This girl is always game to handle any dog we put her on and does a pretty good job.

Girl trouble

This past April Maia was in season, no biggie…WRONG! Now approximately 63-65 days later she thinks she has had puppies, she has been restless, whiney, and even howling when in her crate. All because she thinks she has given birth to not one but three latex babies. The funny thing about this whole thing is that the main latex baby is a replica of the one that was favorite of Riva’s, so much so she had to have it in the whelping box at all times with her before, during and after whelping. Like mother, like daughter! I finally took them all away today, time to wean the little buggers Smile She is doing much better now, not so frantic, no whining so far…the joys of unaltered girls.

Well that’s all we have today…why don’t you hop on over to 2BrownDawgs grab the badge and join the fun.

This is a Blog Hop!

  1. Thanks so much for participating in TNT. I totally understand having trouble getting a fast dog in the viewfinder. I started looking through the eye piece of my camera and I found it much easier to track the dogs. Seems like it wouldn’t be easier, but it is for me. If you haven’t tried it, you should.

    Still, you got some nice pictures. I still have trouble with crisp focus in cover.

    Storm has a false pregnancy just about every time she is in season. I can’t wait for her to be spayed which will probably be this winter.


      1. My main reason for buying the new camera was for a faster one. The other difference is I can change zoom easier on the new camera (just twist). Makes it much easier to get the action shots (although I am still messing with focus settings).


  2. Hailee knows what a Doggy want – extra treats :o) I’m glad Maia is doing better now. We had this thingy vice-versa – a bitch in heat who visited Easy – he was totally over the top for days.


  3. Wait – you give her fake babies two months after a heat? That’s … is that the normal thing to do? How bizarre! That’s kinda cool.


We would love to hear from you!!
