Throw Back Thursday

I kmow it is a day early.  But I found some old photos and felt I had to post.

Whiskey was the old soul.  He was the kindest dog you could know.  I got to share my life with him for a short while as he was my "stepdog" but he was awesome.  I dont have many photos of him but if I could I would have a million Whiskeys.  

Love ya my big red dog.

Go Lzzy Go!

Lzzy was entered in her first ever NADAC Agility trial and she was great!

NADAC offers "Intro" level classes for beginner dogs - Not as many obstacles and challenges as the higher levels.  We did Intro Jumpers and Novice Tunnelers (a course with all tunnels - weeee!)

She qualified both runs and beat out 5 other 4inch dogs in her class!  Awesome!!!

Her focus was great, she didn't wander off to say hi to the ring crew, she wasn't fased by the barking dogs on the trial site.

I couldn't be prouder!

Tongue out tuesday

CC on the see saw. 

Sum sum summertime!

Mindy and the mutts and I had a pool day a couple weekends ago and it was divine.  The dogs enjoyed themselves.

Ryka and Priscilla stayed home because getting wet would melt them (if you asked them).

Agility weekend report: Good, Bad, Ugly

Good (Great actually): Ryka finished her AXP in 3 attempts!  CC's contacts and weaves were AMAZING.

Bad: Me handling CC.  we would have had a Q in Masters Jumpers but I.  Forgot.  A.  Jump....it was gorgeous.  One of those things I want to crawl in a hole and die.  In Standard I screwed her up too.  Bad.  Bad. bad.

Ugly:  Ryka lost her footing in the weaves in Jumpers and it was a NQ.

I trial sparingly and in about a year, Ryka is in Masters Standard and needs one more leg to be in Masters Jumpers!

So proud!

Agility update

Ryka double Q-ed again at the Gloucester County kennel club agility trial!  One more and she will have her excellent titles!

It amazes me that just a year ago we debuted in novice!  She is a great little worker and loves having a job.
