Dock Dogs are Coming!!!

Dock Dogs are coming to the Regina Buffalo Days Exhibition. Ardi would not rest until I signed her up. She has been waiting a long time to try her paw at this. Really what could be more fun for a Chesapeake then running, jumping, swimming and retrieving? She jumps in 3 waves (Wave #'s 1-5-8) and will also be part of the entertainment that KAOS Dogsports will provide in 3 shows a day. I'll post back later with pictures and results.

Island Hopping - Ardi Style

The summer and water go hand and hand. These are pictures taken by my friend Debbie Wiest while Ardi and I were out doing a little water retrieving work.

2008 Retriever Class Slideshow

For the last couple of years I have helped with the beginner class at our Retriever Club. It's a lot of fun, and I always feel privileged to be involved with the dogs and people. There was a good mix of dogs, with a couple of Labs, some Goldens ,1 Airedale, 1 Chesapeake and 1 Duck Toller.
Here is a slide show of the class, pictures were taken on 2 separate nights. The land pictures are from about the 3rd week and the water pictures are from the 7th week.
