Long-Dangerous TailsGerman Shepherd Dogs and their people.
Cabrera and Ember had a fun week this past week with plenty to do. First, they went to the Silverhawks “Bark in the Park” to celebrate National Dog Day. You can bring your dogs to watch the baseball game. There was more dog watching than baseball watching.
They both met Swoop, the Silverhawks mascot. Ember thought he was a giant squeakie toy and tried to play with his hands. Cabrera wasn’t so sure of the giant stuffed chicken.
After a while, they were bored because they weren’t able to play with the ball. What’s the fun in that?
Here is Ember from last year at “Bark in the Park”, at 6 mo. old.
Next, Ember and I went to a rally fun show at Trail Creek in Laporte. We were able to complete the course as many times as we wanted to. Ember’s only good for so many runs because she gets bored, so we did a novice run twice, once on leash and once off, and a more advanced course off leash twice. She did well, although she was a little distracted. It was great practice for her since I want to start showing her in rally soon. I don’t have any pictures of her at the fun show, but have some fun pictures of her.
Lastly, we took Cabrera to the Shipshewanna flea market. It is very busy with lots of people. He was a little overwhelmed at first, but started to warm up to people after a little bit and received a lot of attention. We had a lot of compliments on how handsome he was. Many people said that he was a “real German Shepherd”. Have you seen any fake German Shepherds out there walking around? Again, no pics of him there, but some fun pics instead.
We’re returning from our weekend with the kids at the Connecticut shore, and Dutchie has to take up the entire front of our RV when he could easily go stretch out in the back. Go figure. I think my feet are falling asleep.Yep. That’s why we sold the Acura, and now have a Suburban and a Tahoe. ”If the dog don’t fit, you can’t commit.” Yes, we brought him with us when we were car shopping, too.
