Old Dog & new tricks

Auntie Breeze is taking part in an obedience competition on Sunday. She is part of our training Clubs team taking part in the 4 Counties Shield this weekend. We both train with the Cippenham (Slough) Dog Training Club every week.

Auntie Breeze is nearly 6 years old and has never competed before at Obedience...

This is her training at our Club for the competition doing heal work with and without lead.

Good luck to them both on Sunday!

Time out

Even Border Collies like Auntie Breeze need a nap sometimes.

OK where is that tennis ball and the lead...

Spring is finally in the air.

You can smell it.

Mothers day & Willow

My Mum went round her Mums on Sunday and took these photos of her little dog Willow.

If you have been reading this blog for a while you may remember her going to a flyball tournament with us last year. Willow is meant to be a Patterdale terrier like Chip. Well she is some sort of Terrier and she like a game of tuggie.

And then a bit of a nap...

The look

We had some nice warm Sun this week in West London so had some great walks. Obviously our Border Collies also got to go out as well and bother the boss for him to throw them tennis balls.

I have probably said before that they both do the 'Collie eye' thing which of course being much more clever us English Shepherds don't do.

Auntie Breeze is quite good at it.

And quite persistent.

And will try different tacks

And if pushed make it even more obvious what she wants

But Dare is the king of the look

But he does do happy as well...

Some nice flyball training today the sun came out and was quite warm for a change.

I am not a very good spectator, Dare is much better than me at waiting his turn... OK is it my turn yet?

Then afterwards we all watched those lovely smelling snacks being eaten.

Before we went home for our own lunch and I have a nap to recharge my batteries and dream of winning the next race I am in....

Last Tournament

We have been quite busy this week so the boss only just got around to uploading the last tournaments pictures.

Chip was awarded his Ice Blue Moon certificate and he also got a nice glass award as well as its such an important milestone.

Don't they look nice! Chip obviously prepared himself for his big moment but couldn't decide what expression/look to use when going up to get the award.

The pathetic look perhaps?

Or maybe the 'please can I have some more' beg ...

But in the end he did the 'I am a just a very small dog' one when going up to get them.

Dare also got his latest award as well. The BFA Flyball Dog Advanced title,

But he has a fair way to go to catch up Chip.

This is Chip with his team Grease Lightning at the tournament, he is the little last dog.

And this is Dare with his team Lightning Storm, he is the 'Blue Merle' last dog.
