Yesterday I received the photos from the SWAT Agility Trial in late January. Evelyn Vinogradov (ByVineDesign) is the genius behind the lens. If anyone had any doubt about how much fun Chase has when he’s running, this will put your mind at ease. Look at that grin.
Chase has trials coming up in March, and two in April. Whoo hoo! This is fun!
Today Chase, Flutter and I went out to Edgewood to herd. (Salsa was at a sleepover with Kevin, Tricia, and Copper so didn’t make the trek). There was a pack of puppies that came out today so Flutter had instant friends. On our last round of ducks for Chase, Ellen suggested turning Flutter loose in the arena. I did and she trotted along with Ellen and then with her Grampa. At the very end, she began working the ducks on her own. The video camera is showing its age — that may be the next electronics purchase so forgive some bobbles. Enjoy the baby learning about herding.
Today at the Agility Trial, we ran small to tall so Chase and I were free to leave before noon. A romp in the back yard seemed the best way to relax after the stress of running a really wicked Excellent Standard course. So here are Chase and his girls enjoying the sun.
They love to be in Grampa’s face. You can see Salsa’s brindling coming in with her grown-up coat.
I am past sixty-five and still practicing law. I have two terrific sons, they have lovely wives, and I have one truly special granddaughter. At home are three Cardigan Welsh Corgis that amuse and challenge me. We participate in lots of dog-related activities. I love my camera, writing, and roaming. I live in central New Mexico because it's where I want to be. Thanks for visiting my blog. Your (tasteful) comments are welcome.
