Has anyone heard of NexGard for flea and tick control? It is a chewable and is what my vet is pushing this year.

Becca and I participated in a barn hunt clinic today. It was fabulous! The dogs were introduced to a rat in the tube, then the maze with empty tubes in the same rack used in the instinct test.…Continue

Barn hunt

Has anyone tried barn hunt? There is going to be a clinic nearby next month. I think Becca would love it. I am not sure my allergies can deal with the hay bales at an inside event.

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…

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!

Hey Marcie! Just wanted to stop by and tell you that I just love Becca. Her markings and just her overall looks, are just gorgeous. She looks like such a sweetie with a little bit of rambunctious side lol I hope all is well for you guys. Glad to hear Mokey and Becca are getting a long a little better. :)
