How is This Comfy?

Silly Salty.

Merry Christmas!

Going a little bit out of order here. Christmas was a great as always. My sister, brother-in-law, niece, and brand new nephew were here which made it extra great too!

Yes I really like my candy cane antlers!

Sleeping Dogs

Because I haven't posted any pictures of my dogs sleeping recently. These were taken after the agility trial but before I started my "wild" New Year's Eve. I guess it's hard to be a successful agility dog. Notice in the last one of Kip he has a toy by his head. That dog always has a toy, even when he's asleep.

Last agility trial of 2017

Also one of the few agility Trials of 2017 I should go back and look. I'm sure I did only around 5. Seeing as how I used to go almost every weekend that's a big change. I think I'd like to get back into trialling and training more but I will have to some housing decision changes in order to afford it. I had started training more I know I'd like to keep that up but it is also not quite in my budget.

But enough talk about money, the dogs did well at the trial. Dottie and I are still trying to get a teamwork back together but in our last run it was like old times and she qualified with a third place.

Kipling did very well. He is quite the wild child and even when we qualify the runs are never smooth. But that just might be his style. The first day he qualified in both standard and jumpers with first places in open. That moved him up to excellent jumpers. The next day he also qualified in open standard which finished his open standard title. We do not qualify an excellent jumpers but he did pretty well.

I had a good time as and as I said I hope I can get back into it more.

Balloons

Right before we left the restaurant on New Year's Eve they gave me all the balloons because if they leave them in the restaurant if it set off the alarm. Then I accidentally left it in my friend's van when she dropped me off! Which is probably good because what was I going to do with them?

Practice

We rented the field at Happy Dog to get in some last-minute practice before our trial this weekend. I took it easy due to the recent surgery. The dogs had fun.

Appendicitis

Two words. Not fun. But I survived after getting my appendix removed and then having a hospital stay. My advice is avoided it if all possible.

Happy First Birthday Salty!

He was not a planned addition to my dog family, but I'm so glad he joined us!

He looks extra cute in his party hat! The other dogs in the photo are from Kip and Dottie's agility class.  Salty also had class today but only one puppy showed up and he didn't want to wear a hat. I took a nice video of Salty running a little course but I deleted it before I could post it.

Poodle Play

Happy Thanksgiving!



Dottie's Pilgrim impersonation. With the help of TP.

Yum!

❤️ Family!

Good Dogs

My dogs being good dogs. Salty attempting to perfect his Kip sleeping impersonation, and Kip deciding to lay on the arm of the couch with his ball. I don't think Dottie thinks very highly of Kip's new spot. (Judging by her expression at least.)

Some Dog Pictures. What Else?

Well I'm recovering I mostly stuck at home so I've been taking lots of pictures of the dogs.
I love how his little feet are resting on my leg

I can't figure out where his head is where his tail is or even where his feet are



Poodles are both curled up in this picture on the couch

And then a few minutes later they were both resting on the same side on the couch



Kipling sleeps like this 95% of the time

Pi sleeps like this maybe 50% of the time

So cute

Three dogs three beds

We are not amused
