Canine Good Citizen

Epic recently completed an obedience class that culminated with taking the AKC Canine Good Citizen test.  Of course, he passed with basically flying colors.  I've always felt like the passing requirements are a little loose but overall he did well.  I hold him to a higher standard personally but there is plenty of time to improve.  Not bad for a little guy whose only been free from crate life for less than 5 months!

Poor Slick

Slick has not been well.  Her appetite has been slowly decreasing and she's losing a lot of weight and muscle. We have been trying GI ulcer therapy, nutritional supplement, and a deworming protocol. So far no improvement.  Baseline bloodwork was pretty boring so we are running some more specific tests.  Hopefully we find something treatable.  Here she is enjoying some grass on a sunny day this week.

Fall 2017

Here are some fall photos of the pups I got today. 










And a few of Epic working on a little agility.  We haven't done much but he's getting pretty reliable at calling over a jump.

NYC Day 4

This morning we went to the Top of the Rock (not Branson this time!). The lighting wasn’t great this time of day but the views are great. 







Then on to Central Park. We didn’t get to see all of it was it’s very pretty. The skyscrapers and other buildings contrasted with the natural settings is really cool. 




















We ended the day at the Radio City Music Hall Christmas show which was really nice. 


And here is the Coach bag dinosaur and a few window displays on 5th Avenue. 






We’ve probably walked at least 20 miles in the last 4 days ready to head home tomorrow!

NYC Day 3

Less busy today. After a good nights sleep we checked out a few more landmarks-Madison Square Garden, Penn Station, the Empire State Building and Macy’s. 








We did a little shopping along 5th Avenue and then ice skating at Rockefeller Center. 








And a random photos 






Then we wrapped up the night with an Improv show and a late dinner.
