  1. Gearing Up For A Herding Trial

    July 12, 2015 by myeye

    Today we went to Dr. Barb’s to further polish our herding dogs.  It is so green that it hurts my eyes!  Chase is working well.  He has reached the point at which he understands silence and the bubble and pressure.  His daughter Addie will be trying her paw at Pre-Trial Tested in Colorado next month.  I was very proud of her work — she loves herding.  Ellen has both of these dogs aiming to peak at the right time.  So, photos:

  2. Just Because I Feel Like It

    Here is a photo of my father on one of his polo ponies — in the mid to late forties.  I wish he had lived long enough for me to know him as an adult.

  3. Tuli Made It Through

    Puppy kindergarten ended with Tuli being promoted to first grade (Beginning Novice).  Many thanks to Maggie Gee who gave our puppies lots to think about.  Pam Day and Lacey and Josh Carrillo with Rev were also in the class, but were not in this photo.
