Thanks Jodi!

It has been a very busy week, my niece and nephew went home yesterday. So I was trying to pack in a lot of last minute things. My brother and I drove, (he drove I rode Winking smile) the kids to Tennessee yesterday to meet their mom. 575 long hot miles one way!! We left at 5am and didn’t get home until 2:30am this morning. I took Maia with us for the ride, this was her first time out of the state and she went through three states Smile  I was a bit worried how she would handle the ride but she traveled great.

So on with the follow-up…

I was pretty excited with how these photos went over with everyone and seems you all had the same thoughts..peaceful..tranquil..solitude! I love getting reflection shots, I have been trying hard to get a good dog water entry shot with reflection, nothing yet but you will be the first to know when I do Smile

Wordless Wednesday ~ In Flight

Sand Cranes

SlimDoggy (@MySlimDoggy) asked…

“Do your guys watch the birds in the sky?

Marcie asked…

“Did the dog’s ears perk up with those flying overhead?

SlimDoggy and Marcie I was so busy trying to get this shot I didn’t notice if they saw them. You see we were finding a good training location when my friend got out and started walking towards some very high cover with his camera, I thought he just saw a deer but after a few minutes these Sand-hill Cranes flew up out of all that high cover and I did not have my camera out and ready.

Dolly the Doxie asked…

“Did you chase them and try to catch one?

Oh no, those birds are pretty big Winking smile

I have a new blog I am following, Paulette over at Cape Cod Browndogs, this is a fb friend who started a blog to write about her sweet girl Scout who was recently diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, so I am asking if all of you could drop by and say HI when you have a minute.

This is going to be a wrap for me today, I am beyond exhausted but first I want to give a great big THANK YOU to JoAnn over at Sand Spring Chesapeakes who has given this blog a very wonderful award. I am so honored to accept it!

Isn’t it beautiful! I will be following up on the details to this award next week.

and the original…

Sand Spring Chesapeakes asked…

“is it your little barn?”

This is one of the barns on my friends over at Dusty Rose Chesapeakes grandpas farm where we do some of our training. I thought it looked kind of cool and would make a great B&W photo.

Long Life Cats and Dogs said…

“What a gorgeous shot. What birds are those?”

Thank you so much, these are Sand-hill Cranes that wondered in to our family reunion last year. I was so excited to be able to get pretty close for photos and of course zoom helps too.

 

This ‘N That Thursday

Heart Like A Dog (@HeartLikeADog) asked…

“Can you explain about the latex babies?”

and

Flea asked…

“Wait – you give her fake babies two months after a heat? That’s … is that the normal thing to do?”

Sorry I wasn’t more clear in my post…Maia is going through a false pregnancy. The latex babies are not anything I gave her, she has picked one very special latex toy that she thinks is her baby and packed it around very gently in her mouth, slept with it tucked up to her and if she couldn’t find it she would get a bit frantic; which this was my indication she may be having a false pregnancy. The litter was added to when she decided that the little latex football and latex crab made very nice babies too. Female dogs do this sometimes and Maia’s mother, Riva did it almost every heat cycle. She was starting to get a bit over board with it so I took them away (weaned Winking smile) to see if she would just get over it quickly, so far so good. I didn’t have time today but I will try to find some info on it and post next Friday for you guys.

 

Well that’s a wrap, why don’t you grab the badge and join the hop!
