Happy 12th Birthday Ardi

 Today Ardi, turned 12 years old. She had a great year.  In March of this year we started feeding her and Reese a raw food diet.  This has made a huge difference to her energy level, skin, coat, teeth and just her over all health.  We love this girl and thrilled she is doing so good.  Her cake is made of peanut butter and bannana topped with yogurt and turkey biscuits to decorate.

Reese @ 4yrs old, Ardi @ 12 yrs old and Nugget @ 6 months.

Who stole Nugget?

Last night some one stole my "do anything", "try anything" puppy and left a puppy who never heard the word sit or the name Nugget. When I asked her "What's up Nugget?" she just blinked as if to say I don't know the language you speak.Her little blink always melts my heart.

To be honest,  I just wanted to scoop her up and  take her home and come back next week.  I would be lying if I said I wasn’t frustrated.  Not with  her, but  being  in the situation where we had to try to keep up, it really wasn’t fair to her.   So we  pulled out the tug and had a play, we played the touch game and did a few rounds of puppy zen.  We moved to the middle and the end and let people pass by us.

The Nugget, I know shone  through a few times with some brilliant heeling and some lovely about turns. The last exercise s of the night were pivots, left and right.  She pivoted beautifully  the quarter turn minus a sit.. No biggy lots of time to work on that.  Nugget had one of those nights where she just wanted to stay home and be a puppy.

2012 Santa Claus Parade

What do you get when a few people refuse to hang up their carts and harnesses for the season/ You get the formation of an improptu group so they can enter the 2012 Santa Clause Parade.  The group is named the "Queen City Canine Carting Group".

With the theme of the parade being "Story Book Time" we decided to go with a Dr Seuss Christmas Classic,  "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"   We were the people of Whoville and were were bringing Christmas back.    This was a whole lot of fun!
