Giving Thanks!

What a beautiful Thanksgiving Day!  The weather is glorious and the dogs are loving it.
Patsy and her fan club (Abby and Oliver), visiting puppy.

More play, Bubbles hunting in the background.
Our beautiful Thanksgiving plates and table setting.  Nothing like turkey day!
Finally our table is set just waiting on the turkey and all the food to be ready.  Giving our thanks for not only the wonderful day, but all of the things we have been blessed with this year.  The dogs are healthy, Beli is here with me still:-)), Sheep have been productive this year and the humans health has been good.  Thank you  for everything and may everyone be blessed this year.

TDI Olivia

I got news from Peggy, O'baby's mommy, that she passed her TDI test with flying colors. She was impressive to the testers with her work through all the distraction. Peggy has done a fabulous job with our miracle Olivia! I'm so proud, this is the 3rd Raglan puppy working towards a career in therapy work. O'baby is the puppy I almost lost to a very rare affliction almost exactly 4yrs ago this week. She had a lobe of her liver torse, making her extremely septic. The "what if's" are almost too much to bear! If I had not worked that Friday, if I had not chosen to do an exploratory, if I had decided to put her down when she was seizuring uncontrolably, if the vet hadn't taken one more look further into her abdomen... She was meant to be THIS! And she was meant to be WITH Peggy. I love the O'baby for all of this but I love that she was meant to be with Peggy:-)) Thank you Peggy and Olivia, you go girls!!!

Hanging out

Got to hang out in the big field with the dogs for a bit today. Dogs had a blast, running and playing. Finally was able to get some pics and post them.

Abby and Patsy playing. Abby had a good workout and was feeling pretty good about herself; she even decided to do the scoot! What fun those two have together.

Sally got busted eating snacks, here she is moping back to me.

Oliver stalking Patsy:-))

Beli even found a stick. He has blown almost all of his coat and is quite naked at the moment.

Cute little Bubbles, always wants some attention.

Too long...

Well, this is the longest I've been between posts since I started this blog almost 2 yrs ago! Life has gotten away from me. I'm working more than ever it feels like, though thankfully lessons are part of that. Travel and busy weekends for the next 6wks are surely going to keep posts at a minimum. I've been pretty depressed about Rosy as well. All looked and was to my knowledge normal in her pregnancy UNTIL 4-5 wks and then POOF! No puppies anymore, I'm not sure what happened but it is what it is...
Thankfully I do have things to look forward to... we have trials this weekend and 2 wks from now. Judging in between, which means a change of scenery from home but also a weekend with no training too. We will be watching the Eukanuba since its close to home this year and having Jill visit as well. So we have a busy Fall to take our minds off things that haven't gone as planned.
