October Ring Prep class with the super fancy dogs
This is Cisu, Cisu is a Belgian Tervurun.She is titled at upper levels for Shutzhund and Competition Obedience. Cisu is so fast most of my pictures of her are out of focus.
Little dog & big dog waiting their turn.
Stacey & Roo, this team sums up why we all train with Denise. Look at how good Stacey & Roo look working together.
Denise & Raika, dont you want your teamwork to look like that, I sure do(admittedly I am
a bit of a performance dog training geek). Raika is insanely fancy, jolly and cool. She has major titles in AKC Obedience(she’ll be showing this December at the invitationals) and Shutzhund.
Training with Denise makes Raika pretty happy.
Denise is pretty fun to be around and a completely brilliant trainer.
She’s also completely hilarious.
Look at how much her dogs love her.
Poor Roy first hair clip ever and in front of the fancy dogs and everything.
Roy got to see sheep today for the first time. Kind of incredible to watch a little guy who was just born in June, walk into the pen at the end of September and immediately go to work. He was very serious & intense but not frantic.
I was so excited(dog geek) that most of the pictures are focused on the fence.
He favors Away.
He’s a good little puppy.
Royal has been trying on some Trueism’s.
I’m not against this in anyway, because True is my best boy ever and frankly if Royal wants to be just like him I’ll be thrilled. But I think he’ll probably be his own really great guy. None of our 4(yes 4)dogs are anything alike but they are all perfect for us. They all brought their own special stuff and they share theirs patterns and quirks with each other and then make them their own. Ed taught Roosevelt stuff that Roosevelt aka Woody then passed on to True, then Sookie and now Royal who will continue the family history through his own filter.
A short list of Trueism’s
Sleep in the tightest possible spaces
Share your thoughts
Always Stare Relentlessly at the lady
Whoops, that’s akward
Back to staring
Well done, young Royal
Hell cat ready to unleash fury!
Responsible party? ——->
It couldn’t possibly be little Royal. He was just laying there squeaking away all jolly & innocent with some delightful out of season toy from a holiday he hasn’t even had the privilege of experiencing yet because he’s just a tiny sweet baby dog. Its not like he bit her foot or anything like that, ok maybe a little bite but it was a LOVE bite.
Sookie doesn’t really want to hurt him. She actually loves Roy. She likes to lie down near him and walk with him. She helps him clean up after the food toys. She lets him win at tug even though she could throw him across the room. She may be crippled but she can out-tug anyone.
She’s just kind of serious about everything. But we get it, wouldn’t you be pretty serious if the people you loved dumped you in a big park to die when you were sick and so crippled you could barely walk. So she takes most things pretty seriously and likes to make sure everyone is following the rules carefully. But she also has a great sense of humor.
She’s also all heart, loyal and the bravest girl dog I have ever met. She’s a magnificent dog and every day we have with her is a gift, for real.
She came to stay with us almost 2 years ago, for a month, just a foster for a month. When she was still fighting the good fight a month later we kept her thinking she might live another month. She’s not a foster anymore and I cant wait until the end of September when we can officially celebrate our FIRST 2 years together. There is going to be cake.
Totally busy with this fantastic paper-wad
But never too busy to Bosu!
Chasing the rabbit tug is exhausting.
