Blue Saturday

Do you ever have one of those days where not even a sunbeam will make you feel better? Mom is having one of those days - her head is hurting very badly...

Lesson time with Monty!

All in all, Monty's training sessions have been going very well! He is trying very hard to get things right, although we still have a way to go.

Here, let me show you!

Monty, Sit!

Good boy!

Monty, Down!


Monty, Stay!

Monty! Get back here! Oh well, two out of three isn't bad!

Monty in the AKC?

Well, after some careful thinking, we've decided to enroll Monty in the AKC's Purebred Alternative Listing/Indefinite Listing Program. We'd really like to be able to participate in rally, obedience and agility with Monty. Arizona does not hold many dog events of this type, but this will allow us to participate in more events!

This also means we are going to have to do some serious sessions with our goofy boy! He is doing very well with his sits and downs, but "stay" isn't in his agenda yet.

Our goal is to have him ready for his first event by February!

Dog Days of Summer

It is hot outside. Really hot... We've been limited in what we can do with the boys, and what we ourselves can do. What does this mean overall? Well, for one thing, the blog hasn't been very exciting lately!

The most movement seen at our house this weekend was giving the boys a bath. As you can imagine, Sam wasn't happy with this! Worse yet, I've tried a new dog shampoo and it's made him a little fluffy...

You've ruined my doo!

You may be wondering what else we might have done this weekend. Well, Monty didn't mind showing you...

Go away, I'm sleeping!

We hope you all have a great week!

Sibes versus Golden's...

Sam's Mom here... I was reading blog's today and had a startling realization!

What is this realization I had?

Well, after reading today's post at AO4 - I realized there is quite a difference between a studio managed by a Sibe and a studio managed by a Golden!

Just look at this mess!

Dave, help us please!

(P.S. - Sam and I are now in the process of cleaning up our craft room!)
