Tracking Again

Another fun morning spent tracking with Ash.  We did 2 straight footstep tracks aged about 15-20 minutes.  He takes a bit to get started but then he realizes there is food in the footsteps and off he goes.  I am enjoying my time with Ash, I think he likes the individual attention as well.

This is my favourite picture from today......

21 Years!

Today is Brad and my 21st Wedding anniversary!!
It is really hard to believe its been that long, I feel a little old!!  Brad works tonight so we will go and celebrate on Saturday night.  It will be a combination celebration for our birthdays as well.  I think its a good thing that we can still go out and have things to talk about!  So many times I have seen couples sitting in a restaurant staring off in opposite directions, not talking throughout their entire meal.  I hope we never get to that point in our relationship.

Enjoy a few pictures from the happy day 21 years ago!.....

I have started tracking with Ash, I've gone out twice now and he is slowly catching on.  It is difficult at first to help them realize you want them to follow your scent on the ground, but once they make the connection it is so much fun! I had originally started Kort and Lync but thought Ash needed something to do with me as we don't do anything together.  He seems to like it too!
Here are some pictures from his first attempts......

Today is my birthday, Happy Birthday to me.  As  sit here with my dogs I think back on past birthdays,  the parties when I was a kid, the parties when I was an adult!  Today I am working for the first time, only till noon, then I'm going to go out somewhere special and do something just for me.  Not sure what that is yet but I'll figure it out.
Hope everyone has a great day , party like it is your birthday too, it feels good :)

Saskatoon Dog Show

The entry of Flatcoats for the Booster

I am finally getting around to posting about my Dog Show trip to Saskatoon.

Lync took Select Dog on the first day only giving him another 2 points toward his Grand Championship.  He is now up to 16 points and needs 4 more.  His next show wont be until November now so it will take me awhile to get those 4 points I think.  Now that I am working it is harder to get to the out of town shows.  Lync is out of coat right now anyway so waiting for a bit is probably a good idea.

The trip was also a good learning experience as we had a lot of dinners out with some of the pillars of the  breed like Hans and Margareta Berin from the great Prairielight Kennels.  I loved listening and learning from such experienced breeders.

All in all a great time and will look forward to returning next year!
