months ago i bought some frisbees to use as target plates for agility training.  we never really needed them, so they have just been laying around.

today, on my lunch break, all of a sudden pickles discovers one and becomes obsessed.  she learned how to catch in minutes and already knew drop it.

naturally, after learning the big news of the day, she had to produce!

here she goes for distance:

oh, and outtakes, too!

i know you think i have an evil laugh.  but she was smiling too, i swear!

her biggest challenge is picking it up if she misses the catch.

so don’t miss, right picky punk?!

not to be forgotten, here is cody bear with his paw bump:

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.

so, it was time for pickles to get her own molecuball. she has been watching cody bear and his with great curiosity.

now, from the all pickles channel…..molecuball action!

in the background, you can also hear cody bear’s molecuball rolling around.

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.

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

introducing pickles!  the new addition to our family!  (i had to mute the first part of the video because i was SO squeaky and SO sounding in love!)

well, it’s too late.  behavioral problems be damned….i’m already smitten…

ps if youtube craps out and says video isn’t available…please try later.  the cuteness factor is high and it’s worth stopping by. ..

so, i was trying to play with cody bear…but he just wanted to snuggle!

finally i gave up trying and just gave him some kisses!  as you can see, i love him and he makes me very happy!
