Our photo-shoot

So, we've been busy since getting back from vacation... Haze has been going to class and learning more for Rally... Ma practices with me on walks even though she should keep fast fasts separate from training, but you know her! She's been trying to get us ready for some competitions in Sept and Oct. I fink there is a match this weekend too, but I'm staying home.

It was so frigging hot last week, we didnt get much walking done, and I went a little stir crazy!!


Our pitchers came back from our first official photoshoot and we wanted to share them wif' all our blogger friends...
enjoy:



It was a fun experience and we had Ma and the photographer sweatin' literally! BOL Da took it all in stride as usual... you will see our lovely new collars and custom leashes. (Auntie Linda sells the leashes and we got a whole new wardrobe!)

ciao.

Back from vacay....


Boy oh boy when Ma and Da go on vacay, they mean from EVERYTHING! No internet for 7 days... sheesh. What's a blogging girl supposed to do? Well, we took lunk head. I mean Haze. hehe! He's actually not such a lunk head anymore....I kinda like him allright. We sniff longer now but he did bite my ear 2 weeks ago. My fault; I started it, but wowzer did he finish. Ma realized later that morning, it was on Blue's birthday so she thinks Haze channeled Blue and he got back at me for taking that chunk out last summer :-( I digress....

LBI.
Lovely. We got so much walks in. Even Da had fun on the fast fasts! It rained a few days so we were inside too, but it was relaxing.
As soon as we got there, we saw Kathy and she was so happy to meet Haze. She loved Blue, so another boy Weim is a-ok by her! Plus, we got him that bark collar so he wouldn't disturb her ;-) We sneeked up to the ocean one night but we BOTH were afraid of the waves, so one day, we went to DOg BEach... right near Fantasy Island...there were a few dogs but they left quickly since it was dinner time. I went in--my uzh, up to my pits, but HAze went right on in! Da started throwing driftwood out and he was going out to retrieve!!! We were all happily surprised!

He Likes It! He Likes It!!

Oh, we also had the best day early on.... HOT DOG DAY!!! WOO HOO!!!! It aint vacation without a hotdog. An I think Haze is starting to understand the HDO! BOL

When we got home, we went to Monksville for more retrireving practice with a bumper. We both liked it there.

Haze is walking funny past 2 days we're not sure if it's from us colliding in the tennis courts or he's running too much on them and it's hard on his joints... Our trainer, Kathy said rest for a few days and more mental training to see what's what. I know how much that stinks... I hate when I hurt my knee or shoulder and have bedrest for a few days. NOT FUN AT ALL. :-(

Ok, without further ado, here's some pictures from OUR VACATION and MONKSVILLE.... there's a lot since Da takes like 1000. ma uploaded about 200!


Enjoy.
ciao for now...
