It's been a while since I drowned the forum in pics, so I'll try to make up for it here, lol.

Birthdays

Kim turned two earlier this month. I tried to tell her this meant she's an adult now, but she just grinned her toothy grin and ran off to trounce Webster. She may be an adult, but I don't expect maturity any time soon, lol. She did get present though...duck for dinner and a tug-a-jug toy, which by day two she could empty in under 2 minutes. She can't unscrew it like the kibble ball though, so that's a plus. Hard to believe she's already two...

Titling

The dogs finally made their trialing debut last month...we're starting with rally to get them used to the ring. They've been to two trials now, and have both went 8/8 on Q's to earn their RL2 title (Rally Level 2) and 2/3 legs of their RL3 as well as Awards of Excellence on all completed levels.

They have more Rally next month, and will make their Obedience ring debuts in May.

Also, Webster finally had a chance to take his CGC and passed, so we're going to start moving toward some therapy dog work for him.

Very proud of all they have accomplished...they are great dogs with whom to work. In case you want a feel for what Rally is about, here's a vid each of one of their Level 3A runs...this was the first time they or I had ever done level 3, and only our second trial ever, so please forgive the sloppiness. Those of you who know what Kim was like as a puppy, and Webster when he came to live with us...well we've come a long way lol.





Grand Adventures

The pooches and I had the chance to go visit family last week, so of course we took it. Four dogs in the house, including my parents' dog and my sister's dog, was a bit crazy, but we made it work...both dogs already knew my sister's Ry, but Mom's Maggy was different story...

Ry, sad because my sister wasn't home (total mama's dog):


Tried to get a pic of the three Littles, but the puppy's stay was um...sketchy. Webster made that face each time she broke position lol

Many adventures to be had in the Flatitude of the Midwest, lol...

Lots of smells:


Presents for me (oh how nice!)


Kim treed a Kitty:


Okay to be honest I rigged the above pic, lol. You'll notice Kim isn't looking at the cat at all...the cat was already in the tree when we walked by, so I wedged a treat into the bark for the pic...

Kim, by virtue of having earned her recall stripes, got to go on several long hikes as well, just the two of us...several miles of fields, creeks, and woods.

"Hurry! Let's go!"


Common milkweed:


The river's barely a river yet this year:


Checking it out...and of course her worst recall of the day WOULD be when I am taking a vid, lol:

"ACK! What the heck is THAT!?!?"
(Me: What in the world scared her?)


"OMG I think it moved!"
(Me: Oh please tell me she's not afraid of that rock)


"Mom! Run! You're in terrible danger! ...Or better yet...SAVE ME!"
(Me: I'm going to tell Webster you were scared of a rock...)


"You wouldn't! Oh you would...okay, fine! Watch this!"

This is what I saw for most of the hike...and no, I do not feel threatened because my dog dared walk before me, lol.


On the trail of...something...


You might think she's digging here, but no. In reality she was racing up the bank, tripped, and happened to face-plant into the bank right as I took the picture, lol

And since the poor guy has been left out...

Web wondering why (a very wet and muddy) Kim was tied outside the window to dry:


"Do we have to leave? Really?"


"Fiiiiiiiiiiiine"



So now you are all so sick of pictures you won't want to see them again for a while, lol :p


Thanks for looking!
