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.

“What a good boy!! His training is coming along nicely.”

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

SUGAR: Golden Woofs asked…

“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

This ‘N That Thursday

Today we are joining 2BrownDawgs for their This ‘N That Thursday blog hop!

She says…

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

 

Yesterday I posted a picture of the little robins, so today I thought I would share some more. It isn’t going to be long now and they will be leaving the nest. There are four little babies and I was surprised to find out that both the male and female take turns feeding them.

I have enjoyed watching these fascinating birds and their babies. Last year I found another nest and started to take pictures but then a big crow came along and well… I won’t go into the gruesome details but needless to say after loosing one baby I think the adults moved the others to a new location. I hope I am around the day they start to leave the nest so I can get more photos.

Well looking at the weather for the weekend looks like we might get some training in on Saturday. Hopefully we will be able to get some more water training in, I have been trying to get a great photo of one of the dogs launching themselves. I did get this one last week…

And this one I took several years ago of Remington, sadly he passed away last year. Remmy was a wonderful boy!
