other than frogs for appetizers, you haven’t heard any agility updates!

here’s pickles practicing her weave poles tonight after the vet:

pickles had agility tonight. on the way to class we had the classic rock station on in the honda and  i’m not kidding you when i say…they played “we are the champions!”  picky was stoked!

a confession:  pickles does well in class, as do the other dogs.  it is us…the people, who struggle the most.  we have to remember things and such.  but it’s one of my favorite parts of the week.

and after class…

crazy puppy! keep in mind: she walked up the ramp, found the tub drain and carried it around the shop before she started doing this particular courtship:

turn the volume up, and notice the last bark….isn’t hers. it sends her running away from her little drain.  poor miss pickles. how embaressing!

the dogs let me sleep till 8 this morning.  pickles was a little restless, but she managed.

the coyotes woke me up at 4:30.

today i have tons of work to do, but i will intersperse it with trick training cody bear (we haven’t done that in a long time), agility fun with pickles, and  long walk at the park.

…and a nap.

here they are this morning, right before breakfast:

or here.

now that they’ve eaten, they’re out back doing much of the same.  happy dogs.

bend to my will, or…rub my belly…whichever…

having gone to the vet with cody bear, pickles needed some alone time, as well.  so i packed her in the civic and we headed to the video store.


she’s becoming a regular there!  in the past 5 days she and i have picked up a veritable potpourri of vids.  hellboy 1, the mummy . . . trois, hellboy deux, fool’s gold, and idiocracy.

tonight was fool’s gold and i have no effin’ clue why.  i can’t stannnnd matthew mcconahuh and kate hudson.  but…after cb’s vet appointment, i needed mindless fluff.  i laughed alot, in a stupid, doped-to-keep-me-from-setting-myself-on-fire sort of way.

of all the flicks, the best so far was hellboy deux, though we haven’t viewed idiocracy yet. i’m sure it will be riveting!

i think, given my recent bout with an illness, i’m totally pro whacky-super-powers.  i have a craving to watch mutant movies and the like.

if the dogs had super powers…

pickles would have border collie mind control, able to bend people to her will.

and cody bear would have the ability to make anyone feel loved and welcome.

what is your super power?

here’s some video of pickles, my new border collie puppy. she’s playing with her favorite toy….a broom. naturally.

you can click here for the link because the embed feature probably won’t work again!

this is fine because i don’t enjoy cleaning the floors anyway.

just kidding, she has her own broom.

sunday morning. cody bear would have let me sleep all day! when i finally woke up he was waiting patiently.

but, as you can see….he was STARVING!

but he wouldn’t wake me up. also, i love him for little silly things, like how if my toes are hanging off the edge of the bed, uncovered,….he won’t lick them to wake me up.

he’s a sweet little bear
