Dogs at Lake Dora

Thursday, September 29, 2011


I feel much better having had the time to take pics of the dogs today! Lots going on since I got home from the ASCA Nationals, most bad but there is always some good amongst the bad:-)) First though the Nationals were fun to watch; lots of dogs and stuff going on the whole time. Quite a bit of rain so no pics, my jacket pockets were full!

Rosy update... still not sure though some positive prego signs, she's not talking. Only a couple more weeks til we can be sure or not.

Sally my co-pilot, dirty from an early walk roll in the dirt:-))

This is the second go at a roll, everyone was happy to be on a walk even though it was really hot!

Patsy Loves her sticks, almost as she loves the Cardis...

As evidenced by the Cardis all on top of her in the pileup!

My sentry girls, keeping the goats at bay.

Bubbles back for only a split second between squirrel hunts (1 down, thousands to go!)

My Mr Oli, always doing something goofy for attention!

Finally the foster puppies. They are here for a week or so to get better "new home" manners. They are learning to play with people and other dogs, sleep in crates, leash walking... Big stuff for babies to learn. They will resume the home search next week.

The goats, always in to stuff they shouldn't be... They have to come poking around while I'm walking the dogs, drives the dogs crazy! Damn goats!!!!:-))

More travel and some catch up

Well I'm looking forward to heading out tomorrow morning for West Bend, WI. I am attending the ASCA Nationals with my friend Debby; although I was supposed to drive with her I had to shorten my trip. I'll be there for 5 days to watch the Finals and the Pre-trial classes. I am looking forward to watching and meeting new folks:-))
Also Rosy is bred so we wait 4 wks until we can hope for signs to show up. All fingers and toes crossed; tried to talk the dogs into it too but they refused. Another load of sheep is ready for market since the grass is so poor here this year... More baby chicks hatched yesterday though the hens are fighting over them so I don't know about that!:-/
Bubbles is fitting in just fine with everyone. She and Evy were cut from the same cloth, like peas in a pod! All the girls are getting along pretty well considering the hormones that have been flying around here.
Hopefully I'll be able to take some pics on the trip and post here or there.

I can't believe its been 10years since the terrible attack on our country. I still remember the feeling of panic and fear I felt on that day. I also remember exactly where I was and what I was doing as I watched the first plane fly into the first tower. So much has happened since then
I am still proud to be an American and I am proud of our country! Most of all though my heart goes out to those that were lost both in the towers as well as those first responders lost as the towers fell. There are so many wonderful stories of courage and faith as we were under such duress.
So on this 10th anniversary of these terrible attacks, I will only say GOD BLESS AMERICAN-UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL!

I'm really looking forward to this litter and how this outcross will work! So keeping our fingers crossed for November babies!

Catch up

First I'm a very bad mom, I didn't post about Evy's Bday! Evy is 8 this year and enjoying every moment of her retirement. She still loves to share my bed, hunt lizards and rats and just be a general pest:-)) She is from my very first litter and I love her so much. Poor Weed, I'll try and be better next year!

Resting on one of our NC hikes.

Hanging with her pop Beli after doing chores this summer.

Second. Rosy is finally in season and will be bred in the next 2 wks. Plans change all the time for me, this is no different:-)) Nugget, Jett's brother is the lucky guy:-)) I will post pics and info on Nugget later! I'm excited about this litter and will continue to post updates as they come along.

We have a very busy Fall coming up with trials, judging and puppies I hope!
