The Prodigal Son Returns

My dog is officially a badass.

I went out to Dianne's today (after over a month of being too busy to make it out) and got to see what Moss can do. Dianne has him going really awesome. He is completely on whistles, at barely 16 months old.

Awesome, right? I am so excited!

The best part is that he listens to MY whistles, too :D. I guess that means that I'm getting better at it. Dianne is really excited to start running him. He will be one of her nursery dogs next year.

I will run him in N/N (and PN, eventually... when I stop being such an idiot). Our goal is to get him qualified for the 2011 USBCHA Nationals in Colorado. Wouldn't that be a kick? Dianne has nothing but good things to say about my boy. He is looking SO grown up... I can't believe it! He no longer looks like a baby dog.


Well... must get back to work. Less than two weeks left in the semester! Let's see if I survive...

Blast From The Past

Exactly one year ago, Moss and Cedar looked like this:



...I miss my boy :( I think it's time he came home from Dianne's for awhile... I can't stand it!

What do y'all think?

I don't have to go to campus today, so I'm going to try and find the time to give Cedar a bath. She's starting to blow coat and I'd like to get a head start on the shedding :)

Looks Like I've Got Myself an Agility Dog!

Went to agility practice this morning after a couple weeks off. There were only three people there (including me) so we got a lot accomplished today! It was a whole lot of fun. Mary (our instructor) says that we are just about ready to compete :) We worked a lot on sequences today, as well as weave entries and contacts (particularly the dog walk).

Cedar is really great at agility... I love seeing the joy on her face when we work on this stuff. <3

Bear With Me...

No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth!

I am rounding the bend on this semester, and things are crazy right now. I don't have much time for anything, much less blogging! I'm up to my eyeballs in grading and my own work.

..........I know, cue up the violins.

But seriously, I promise that I will post as much as I can over the next few weeks, and after school is out in the beginning of May, will pick things up quite a bit. Stay tuned for new photos and maybe a video or two :)
