Whilst it's not raining!


I asked Ian whether we could move one of the "pampas grass", well what I meant was dig it up and split it into four and then use else where around the garden, so out came the digger!




....Whilst I stuck a Pizza in the oven, I was in for a suprise when I returned to the house to find HARRY! In bed with some light reading!

might I add It was clean washing!

Harry pulled it off!

Here's one of Harrys wins in G4 agility at pembrokeshire, taking him into G5

and not to miss Buzzy Bear out, here is one of his fab jumping rounds! Well for Buzz and I it is! Go Buzz, Go. Maybe we can get it together after all, I did feel slightly sad watching Aly and Lisa running him over the past week and seeing how that, their extra leg length, helped drive him along! you had better turn the sound down as Ian is chatting to his mate Mike at the same time as videoing - multi tasking !!!!! note he managed to miss the pole going down - well I think it did!

and here is Mindy and her Dad enjoying the only day of SUN that we had all week!

Barf Diet

It was Bone day today. last week I had asked for some Marrow Bones as lately we had just been getting meaty lamb ribs and a few shoulders and I wanted more bone! ............. especially as Mindy is starting to teeth and is chewing anything and everything, I caught her with her teeth around the wooden internal latch doors! All the others seemed to be okay with just bones when they where younger, but I did have a different butcher then and was able to get more leg bones of both Pork and lamb.

Mindy eats the tips of the chicken wings so fast that I'm now giving her some lamb rib bones, which thankfully is taking her longer.

Look at those ears, I think they might go "Up" after all, or maybe it is just because she is having more mouth/teeth exercises. Time will tell.

More Pictures!


We caught Red in action this week! She is a naughty dog, she loves to roll on the bed - I really should just shut the door and stop them from going in there, Ian doesn't seem to mind, as he took the picture!!








...and how could you resit these two, cuddled up together on the sofa aaahhhh!

Just, some photo's this week




I've been lent a small skateboard from Nicky at Hawksflight, so I can teach the small guys something new!
Mindy (15 weeks) took to it like a, Duck to Water, whether that is because I have been teaching her to walk on a homemade cardboard wobble board and other odds and sodds. Harry seems to be happier just sitting on it, but these photos are of our first introduction to the "skateboard" this morning!

So, not bad I think. (good English - just for MUM!)



and Here's the promised photo of Harry's Pairs partner winning haul, Nellie KC name is: North Somerset Nellie.
More to come - I think!


and lastly if you really want to know how we did agility wise over the weekend, read on:

Harry and I where away with the Devon Fairies!
I think because most of our courses have been 1-7, so therefore alot easier than 4-7 which he is now, so I have to start "upping the anti" (spelling) and start to teach ourselves harder things.

Buzz was well and truly away with the fairies.

Red well off course she was good! I thought I saw the judges hand go up for my hairy seesaw, IMO I should have been faulted, I did a reverse turn in front of it, which pushed her forward, so it didn't touch the floor and only just went past the pivot point, but I wasn't the judge! anyway I held her on the rest of the contacts and we where 3rd, I pushed her too hard in the jumping and she had a pole, so I was naughty and didn't work the rest of the course.

Got to go, the postman has just chucked the "agility Voice" through the letter box and I need a cup of coffee!

My "back in the old days, School" friend has arrived!


My School friend has arrived with her Husband and two boys - I say boys, one is taking their driving test next week! Where has the last 30 years gone? now that is scary!

They decided, they would bring all their camping gear! and Lottie the Jack Russell x Collie, no they aren't agility folk! Yes we do have friends that don't do agility.

I did offer them the caravan, that is in use too.
When I went down to see them this morning there they where in their "PJ's" cooking bacon butties!

It is great seeing them all.
They have gone down to St Ives, Tate gallery today as it's RAINING - again.

Good excuse not to train my contacts this week! Well the "A" frame. Mind you, Buzz would have to stop at the bottom, or he would be in the tents!

Happy Days.

It's all been happening!

What a long weekend, in a good way thou.

Firstly:
Well done to Mine and Harry's pairs partner, for winning out of G3, by winning 1-3 agility class at the Blackdown AC Show on Sunday. Hopefully Chris will send us a picture of Nellie and her trophy to put on here. (but you can see a video off our first pairs together, further done the page!)
