Sunday was a very sad day. We lost our Autumn dog - she was only 10 years old. She was only sick for a few days. I was very grateful that we had time to say good bye and do some of her favorite things before she left this world.

Autumn was my very best friend and I miss her dreadfully.

Going Home

Our little ones start to head to their forever homes this weekend. This is always a tough time for us. We love that these little guys will head off to such great homes where they'll have all the individual love and attention that they'll need to grow up into excellent canine citizens. But it's very sad for us to have the little creatures that we've watched grow from specks on an ultrasound into these very fun bundles of fur leave us. On the left is "Barley" with his new people Nick and Trudy. Barley will join Cowboy in their home (and besides, we'll see him every week at training class!).

Field Trip

We're soooo pooped. We went training in the field today with the big dogs. We had a ride in the truck, a big walk in very tall grass and we hung out in the exercise pen while people picked us up and admired us. Then we came home and ran around the yard for a while in the rain. Now we're sleeping - some of us are even snoring...

So, what'd you think of the whole bird thing? I thought the pigeons were fun, but the pheasants were REALLY heavy.



It's a bit nippy out today, but we've been enjoying the sunshine. Mark brought out some birds and we played with those for a while, then we played King of the Castle (actually Queen of the Castle) on the big rock in the yard.
