  1. Plotting Day for the SDOC TD Test (and Holmes)

    January 9, 2010 by myeye

    We were so blessed — the high today is near 50 degrees.  So, though the morning was pretty nippy, most of our time in the fields was very pleasant.  We had morning coffee, plotted six tracks, and then gorged on pizza.  I took Holmes along.  He was treated to some food he shouldn’t have — like cranberry muffins.  Since it was all part of a great day for him, I’m letting it slide.  He was hugged and scratched, and petted, and talked to — he loved it.

    This is where we were — doesn’t matter how often I go to our tracking area, I still drink in the beauty.

  2. Night Spots

    Holmes loves the little square bed that was in the puppy prison.  So, it is now in the crate in my room in which he spends the night.  The bed is too small when he stretches out, but if I remove it and leave just the crate pad, he is annoyed and can’t seem to get comfortable.  Since having him sleep for seven hours straight is a really high priority, he can just keep the little bed.
