Ziva’s latest not so fun adventure.

Ziva recently sliced her paw very deeply before her class at an agility trial.  I could not stop the bleeding so we wrapped her up in a diaper and off to the vet. They had been doing some renovation at the site and since the slice was so clean we are wondering if one of the workers may have dropped a blade from a cutting tool used on either the drywall or carpeting.  She has been getting lasered & wrapped  every other day and finally we are starting to see some granulation tissue filling in-yay!   We will have missed 3 trials and it looks like the late December trial will be it for us for the year since there were only a few more local trials before winter set in and then that was it until March 🙁

Here I am waiting to get my foot looked at.  Mom needs to clean her floors, look how dirty my bandage is!

I hope that I can start to do things soon!  Hanging in the house is BORING!!!!












Laser all done and my nice clean green bandage is on 🙂  I find if you look like a sad waif at the vet techs they give you goodies























SUCCESS!!!!!  Cookies are yummy













Bye, bye Audrey, see you (and your cookies) in a few more days.

Aiden helps at a CGC Test

On Thursday June 15th Jack, Aiden, Dylan and I went to help out a local dog trainer who was holding a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Test. This is something we do on a regular basis. Aiden and Dylan act as the “meet and greet” dogs.

For us there was a special surprise as Dylan and I got to “meet and greet” Greta, Alta-Tollhaus Ygrette (“Y” litter, Hunter/Judy)


Greta passed the test and earned her CGC Title. Afterwards Aiden and Greta got to visit with each other and then pose for pictures.

Snow shovel supervisor

We had over 3 foot of snow in the last 2 days, so Ms. Libby  was on duty.

Hey, do you know how to use this?












Here let me get it for you.












You’re supposed to push it













For crying out loud, push it-here let me show you how!
