Bored

Going a bit crazy I have to admit!! The weather has turned cold again, which means I cant sit outside, right now I cant do anything with Ash as he isn't vaccinated fully.   He is just a baby but I feel like he is bored.   I cant train him 24 hours a day,  I try to find things for him to do but I am running out of ideas.
Lync is being so greedy, every time Ash picks up a toy Lync grabs it out of his mouth, today I got so annoyed and frustrated I put every single toy away.  There  is nothing out for them to argue over, peace and quiet, but boredom for the dogs, so they are sleeping.
 
I was given the ok by my vet to walk Kort and Lync, which I do everyday, but it still doesn't seem to be enough for Lync.  We have class tonight thankfully!

I leave Thursday for a dog show in Camrose.  I am so excited to get out of the house  and do something different !!  Last year I went by myself , it was the Collie National, this year Amanda is coming with me, she is doing obedience with Pixel and Brit, hopefully I will be able to get over and watch. 
I love obedience and will be glad to finish Lync's championship and concentrate on obedience only for awhile.   Ash will be old enough to show on July 5 so it works out perfectly if Lync does finish this weekend, then I will only have to worry about showing Ash.

That's about it ,  not much more to talk about , my life is not very exciting right now .

Busy busy busy!

Having a new puppy sure cuts into your free time!  It will be worth it in the end though and it only lasts for a few months so I don't mind!

Ash is so confident it amazes me, and athletic! he can bounce off the ground already! I don't encourage it of course as he could hurt himself,  but he does it when he gets excited, like at meal times. 
He is so smart, he knows, sit, down, back up, spin right, and we are beginning heel position.
He is also beautiful!  I can hardly wait to start showing him!

Here is two videos of the first time he tried stairs, and he decided on his own it was time, nothing to do with me ....

13 years ago....


Janet in the middle, top, with me, my brother and sister
 Today is my cousin Janet's birthday.......she would have been 56, she passed away from a brain aneurysm when she was 43, just like her older sister Judy did 5 years before her, at the exact same age.

I think about my cousins often, what they would be like now, more kids maybe?  We were close , the 3 of us, did alot of things together in the "good old days"   To see a family member, laying in a coma, twice in a 5 year span was heartbreaking.  I am not really sure how their family got through it, by the time Janet passed away her mom, my aunt had also passed away from Cancer.  I remember my Uncle saying he was grateful she didn't have to see another child die.

Judy and Janet left behind 2 little girls, the same age.  They were 4 I believe.  They are grown women now, I keep in touch with them on Facebook, one is troubled, one is doing well. Judy left behind another son and daughter as well.  I  don't keep in touch with Jimmy , but Katie is a sweetheart and was only 16 when her mom Judy died.  Katie is thriving and has a husband and 2 kids of her own now, we are still very close. I wish Judy and Janet where here to see their kids, have a life, I miss them , all the time.

Happy Birthday Janet xoxo
