109-115, without much finesse

May 13, 2012

I guess, you could say, I have a million possible excuses. I’ve been extremely busy, without *gasp* editing software, and not downloading the photos from my memory card, to my computer. But excuses are lame, which is why I made them in a way it so it would sound like I was trying to avoid making them… because I was, kind-of… so, without further due, here are this week’s photos…

 Tomorrow, George will be getting a hair cut… he’ll be able to cool off more… and enjoy some agility in this heat! 

 and a warm hello from my bee friends 😉

Happy early Mother’s Day!

97-99/366, entries

April 28, 2012
April 25th was Matthew’s fourteenth birthday…

and finally, today, we worked entries. George was going wild, super enthusiastic, energetic and crazy confident… and it made him exceptionally fun to run. It’d also been a while since we worked weaves on the front yard lawn. oh, and did I mention, we were running? I also managed to get some decent distance and independence on his weaves and jumps, which felt really right. He’s very bulky to run, he bounds almost like a lab with a huge dorky grin on his face (I’m sure I didn’t look much different) and it’s really rewarding, when he’s confident like that.  I stopped the session quite early, making  him want more… so we really were able to end on a good note, and I think that’s important of any training session.

I’m hoping that tomorrow we’ll be able to go do agility at the field and *hopefully* carry over some of that confidence. Of course, I mean, agility after I’ve studied for my ELM and finished the next part of my stock project-of course!
