Eyeherd that someone wanted updates

Apparently *some people* feel that I don't blog enough. So Katy, this one's for you. ;)

We're pretty much all moved into our new place. Still have quite a bit of unpacking and laundry to do, but other than that we are all settled. I love it here! It's so nice to have more space and an overall better living situation. With all the chaos I haven't been able to get out to Dianne's at all, which sucks. But it's been worth it!

The dogs actually have their own "room" (well, it's actually just space for their crates in the laundry room), but the best part is that I can actually shut them off from the rest of the house! That has kept everything much cleaner. It's pretty fabulous. They are lovin' the big back yard; there are a lot of places for them to explore. They all seem much happier with the extra space... probably because WE are happier, too.

See? :)

Moss is five months old and is now a little bit taller than Cedar! He is such a sweet puppy. I DO need to do some more obedience work with him as he doesn't have the world's best impulse control. LOL

He is definitely losing that "puppy" look:

I am excited to start working him on stock this summer!

Cedar is doing great as well. We got through our first herding trial, and will be doing the Couch Novice trial in a week and a half, even though we haven't practiced at all. My confidence has been a bit low lately and that hasn't done much to help her with her work. I guess we're both a work in progress.

I want to start working her in agility again, too. I wish I had the money to sign up for the newest set of classes. I need to retrain her weave poles... I think I'm going to stick to my plan of teaching her 2x2 weaves instead of getting lazy and not following through like I did the last time I had ambitions of teaching her, haha. She loves to weave though, so I'm looking forward to working with her more. I need to convince my dad to build me an A-frame or teeter or something, though...

I wonder if I could have her ready to trial by October? That's probably pushing it... and I'm not exactly the queen of follow-through.

To close, here are a few shots of Scully enjoying the new house:

Nicely done! Now, that wasn't so tough, was it?

I really like that last shot of Cedar.
