Monday Mischief ~ Get Your Nose Out of There

Well believe it or not today’s post is not about Maia…nope this one is about a certain male house guest.

Yep you guessed it, my mischief dog this last week has been Trail!

You see I have had girls in season since Trail and Bitsy arrived, Maia was getting towards the end and right after they arrived Riva came in. Now I know how the boys are when the girls are in season, thankfully he is neutered but that does not stop the hormones, it just means he can’t make babies. I have done my best to keep them separated but twice now I have caught him trying to do something he shouldn’t, he was apprehended right away so nothing happened. But I tell you I will be glad when she is done. In keeping with my G rating for this blog there will be no mischief photos Winking smile

Instead I will just leave you with this…

Wordless Wednesday ~ Whose that doggie in the mirror?

 

I find it so interesting how dogs respond differently when they see their reflection in a mirror. Riva and Maia both were curious about the dog in the mirror the first time they noticed themselves but Cheyenne knew she was looking at herself.

 

This ‘N That Thursday

 

House Guests

Everyone is settling in very nicely! I have discovered that when Bitsy is hungry she gets vocal…veeerrrryyy vocal! Trail likes to carry on a conversation all the time, he is one happy boy!

 

Training

Double or Double Marked Retrieve is actually two retrieves. The dog watches both birds fall, retrieves the first bird to hand and then goes to retrieve the other bird which is the “memory bird” since the dog must remember it while retrieving the first one.

Singles are just individually thrown birds and retrieves.

Titan has singles down and is working on doing doubles and casting! I can see great improvement in his obedience since last year. I am very proud of him and so grateful he has such a great trainer. You can check them out here.

 

Claudia Orlandi Seminar

 

Last February I attended Claudia Orlandi’s seminar on ABC’s of Dog Breedingand Practical Canine Anatomy and MovementI had previously taken the test for breeding and received my certificate from AKC; after the seminar I completed the test for anatomy and movement and finally got around to sending it in to Claudia to be corrected and as long as you have 80% or above she issues you a certificate also. Well I received my certificate today and I am happy to say I was well above 80%, yeah!!

Monday Mischief ~ The Sandal

We had a whole lot of mischief here the other night about 2am, or maybe that’s morning… anyway I woke up and noticed Maia was not in bed so I called her and a little head popped up over the end of the bed…uh-oh, she is doing something! So I drag myself out of bed to discover that she has chewed…no shredded one of my favorite sandals Annoyed 

As I was picking up all the pieces I thought to myself “wow this would make a great Monday Mischief post” see even in the wee hours of the morning in a fog of sleep I am thinking of blog posts Laughing out loud Oh and while I was cleaning up her mess she went back to bed!

Since the light bulb didn’t come on until I had things almost picked up, I recreated the event.

Watching me as I recreated the mischief, I can just read the look on her face, “how did that happen!”
