Eagle bait?

We now seem to have a bald eagle in the neighborhood. Becca doesn't spend much time outside without me, but I wonder. Could a bald eagle snatch up a 25 pound corgi?

Scary night

Becca and I had a huge scare last night. We are visiting my mother. She got into something on our walk, ate it, I figured it was a poop. Apparently it wasn't. At about 9:15 I notice she is shaking…Continue

Talking back

Becca has been finding her voice. She still isn't a barker, but she mutters, especially when she wants something. At times it is cute, often it is exasperating. I've been trying to bring work home with me in order to be home earlier. She doesn't like it and will moan, growl and woof at me. She makes noises if she wants a walk, treat, to train, fence time, you name it. Yesterday she was upset because the cat was on my lap not her. She won't be quiet when asked, ignoring her doesn't work either.…See More

Another UTI?

I think Becca may have another UTI. I had to go in to work for about an hour today and came home to a puddle. After I cleaned it up I took her for a walk. She peed four more times, a sizeable amount then trickles. She will pee to mark, but this didn't have the same behavior pattern. Since then she has gone out two more times and peed both. Becca has been quiet today, but played and practiced agility.I plan on calling the vet tomorrow. My key question is whether or not this could be caused by my…See More

Happy first day of spring

Posted on March 20, 2014 at 10:35am 18 Comments

As we are digging out from 6-8 inches of snow this morning, Becca and I would like to wish everyone a happy first day of spring. I was shocked to get a snow day off from school today, it was supposed to rain. Becca has enjoyed my day off by playing in the snow, walking with some doggie friends and now having a snooze.

My ipad won't let me put an image on the blog, so I'll add it to photos.

Herding lesson/instinct test

Posted on August 14, 2013 at 7:02pm 1 Comment

Becca had her herding instinct test and first lesson today. We went to Little Dove Farm in Appleton, Maine. A friend from agility class went with her aussie as well. It was very comprehensive. Suzanne began with a lesson with us (handlers) using one of her dogs for example. She cut three dog trained sheep out of the flock. Explaining what she was doing and what should be expected of the dog.

Then she worked with each of our dogs in a 30x30 pen. The dogs were on a long leash giving her…

Recall

Posted on July 10, 2013 at 5:47pm 5 Comments

I got a scare this afternoon and was ultimately proud of Becca. We were walking by the river, she was off leash. Becca ran around a tree after something gray, I thought it was a squirrel. They looped back around by me and ran up a hill, it was a gray fox kit. I about had a heart attack and immediately called for her to come. It took four "BECCA COME" (10-15 seconds maybe), but Becca came flying back. I praised her to high heaven, treated and leashed.

This is the one area in my…

Rally Title!

Posted on June 21, 2013 at 3:12pm 6 Comments

Becca got her Rally Novice A title today! It was a very difficult venue, the pulling barn on a fairgrounds. There were horses on the track, swallows swooping, roof noises, and best of all horse manure mixed in the dirt. The judge was lenient and we scored a 94 and third place. We are entered again tomorrow. I need to decide whether to go, or scratch. She is not ready to move up to Advanced and it is an 80 min drive.

Thank you, Marcie! Sometimes when I feel passionately about something, I fear I may come off a little bit strong but I do always try to remember that there are real people with feelings sitting on the other side of the screen!
