photo from this morning

Sunday morning adventure

I went paddling this morning in my shiny new kayak; we saw two huge herons and some other smaller birds. It was a quiet peaceful time. The new kayak is not so shiny now. Then I took a nap with the poodles when I got home ! Lazy Sunday.

New Title !!

what a difference a day makes! 32 degrees cooler, steady cold rain, lots of thunder and some lightening.....fortunately it was a bit away.

Norah had a nice run today although not quite as good as yesterday. But she was the only dog to pass in Open A and got 1st with 192 and her CDX title. This is my CDX # 12 starting back in 1968 with DeeDee (Keeshond). Who would think I'd still be doing this? And every title is so special.
Howie enjoyed the cooler weather and had an enthusiastic performance but an ill-timed clap of thunder was a bit too much for him on the Long Down. He is entered next Friday and Saturday so will try again

Howie has a good day

Howie got his 2nd CDX leg today at a very HOT outdoor trial. 190.5 and first place.
Norah had a really nice run but did not come on the first recall command; her NQ was 167 and HIT was only 195.5 :(

We'll try again Sunday and the weather forecast is for much cooler
