A Dog's Dream Come True!

So I was putzing on my laptop, something I am told I do way too much of, when the doorbell rings. There is the usual canine pandemonium that alway ensues. John goes to answer the door, and fend off Jimmy and Wilson from whoever it is that woke them up. I peek out the front window and what do I see?...................(click to enlarge if you can't read the sign)

Truly a dog's dream come true! A door-to-door MEAT salesman! Much to the boys' chagrin, John sent them away......

The Weekend Report: Still in a Slump!

Jimmy and I just can't seem to get it together lately. Friday we ran three courses and something went wrong in each run.

First the maps:

Our first run was Premier Standard, which is just a trickier and faster version of a normal Standard run. Most of the challenges involve making your dog run around to the backside before jumping. #3 was a backside, and I got myself lost and off balance coming around from sending him. This got Jimmy flustered, and put me behind for doing another backside at #5. We almost pulled it off but Jimmy dropped the #5 bar. The rest was clean, even the odd jumps after the AFrame.

Next up was regular Standard (middle map). We had a nice run going until the jump after the AFrame. Sigh.....but hey, I did get video!

And finally our Jumpers run where I felt confident we would redeem ourselves.....NOT! I knew the weaver entry would be a tad tricky and I thought I worked it enough but alas, Jimmy missed it and went in at the 2nd pole. It's been a long time since we have come home completely Q-less. Of course, Jimmy gets his peanut butter treat either way, so he's fine with it!

Next weekend is the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club trial. Two days of agility! Let's see if that helps!

You're Gonna Be SO Jealous!

Look who I had the chance to hang out with.....

YES! That's right! I spent the day with Pam and Honey from Something Wagging This Way Comes !!!

Pam's boat was docked as close to me as it was going to get, so I didn't want to pass up the opportunity to meet one of my favorite bloggers in real life! I had a wonderful time chatting on a myriad of subjects. We actually talked about things other than dogs and blogging, can you believe that?! I had so much fun talking, I didn't spend much time with my camera, just a couple more shots...

I knew when Pam and I made our plans that the weather would more than likely be too hot to bring Jimmy and Wilson along. And, alas, it was a very hot day. My guys are A/C addicts and would not have fared well in the heat and humidity. At 14, I don't take chances with Wilson's health. I, on the other hand, barely noticed the heat. I was having that much fun!

We walked into town to have lunch and I met Pam's husband Mike. As it turned out, he has relatives who live in the same tiny, blink and you missed it, town in New Jersey where I grew up! Sometimes the world can be a very small place!

One last photo, this time of me posing with the lovely Honey, sweet Golden girl that she is!

Photo credit to Pam, of course!

Many thanks to Pam for inviting a "total stranger" over to spend the day. It will definitely be one of the highlights of my summer!

Because I'm Lazy....

We went away for a long weekend over 4th of July and of course Jimmy and Wilson came along. I took plenty of photos but never posted any here. Today I finally put together a Shutterfly book and since I am feeling a tad lazy (and that book was alot of work!), I am going to share the book here instead of creating a whole new post. Hope you enjoy it!

No Fear!

I see this doe almost every time I go out for a walk. She has no fear of me. Mainly, she is just curious. Even the dogs cause her to be curious. I am sure if Jimmy could just shut up for a moment, she would walk up and sniff noses.

Deer go by my fence all the time. It gives my dogs lots of exercise ;-)
