Snow day 2018

We had enough snow today to stay home.  It was pretty cold though but I did manage to get some photos.  Lyric does not appreciate snow like she did when she was younger.

This cutie pie is Penny.  She's about 3 years old and  was a stray.  She seems pretty easy going so far. Likes dogs, doesn't mind cats and loves attention.  We will know more about her soon!

Tulsa UKC Jan 2017

The search team of Legend and Epic did great at the trial this weekend.  Legend rocked a perfect 5/5 weekend finishing her Elite containers, Advanced and Superior Interiors as well as her Advanced and Superior Nosework titles.  She also earned one high in trial and two first places.

Epic had a great weekend as well.  He was 5/6 and probably would have gotten the other one but I rushed my call a little.  He finished his Advanced containers and his Novice interiors plus a leg on his Advanced interiors.  He also got some placements but isn't quite as fast as his sister yet.  It's hard for me not to compare them but in reality he's doing great for only 6 months training!  

Coming up next Legend will be doing a few AKC trials and they will probably both attend another UKC trial before spring is over.  We will enter some NACSW but as always we have to wait on the draw.  Oh, and Epic is entered in an ORT so hopefully when he and I ready to give NACSW a shot he will be all set to go.

Florida Christmas 2017

We spend the first few days near the beach and St. Augustine.  We enjoyed sight seeing and shopping around town, visiting a historic fort, family time with games, and of course, the beach.  Complete with fun photos.

We spend the second half near Orlando.  It was much chillier than predicted here but we muddled through Disney World and Orlando Studios anyway.

We returned home to temperatures in the single digits and wind chills below zero.  So happy new year.

Back in the saddle week 3

This little cutie is Flynn.  He's the perfect babysitter horse and got me safely around a whole course this week!  Who knows what adventure I'm in for next week...

Crazy toe

This was an interesting case.  None of us had ever seen anything like it before.  Although the owner elected not send it in for histopathology (we had to amputate the toe) it did fit the description of a particular kind of benign nail bed tumor.  So I expect the dog to do well.
