My dogs are happy to be out working again. Taylor was so thrilled to see a bumper the other day and ran a beautiful Simple T drill( an exercise designed to teach a dog to handle on blind retrieves). Taylor is a sensitive dog and handles pressure much different than her dad or half sister, Reagan ,so it was great to see her so positively happy to do drill work.
Keaton celebrated his 11th B-day with his obedience training friends with a cake from 3 dog Bakery. A good flatcoat friend once said to me, “The first 10 years the dogs play by my rules. The next 10 years they play by their own.” So true, Keaton has long forgotten what stay is, that the bed is for humans, and that my food is NOT his food.
Reagan ran field drills at record breaking speed and heeled like an OTCH(Obedience title champion) dog in training class on Monday. If she were human, she would be working 80 hour work weeks. She is so driven.
