Three days on !

Today is three days since I picked up my beautiful new pup, in the last three days we have all done loads, Yazoo has been to Waitrose twice to check all the trolleys, children's play area and sliding doors, she has been to visit Auntie Nancy and Uncle Andy, has been to Guildford high street all but briefly as the weather was freezing ! she has spend a couple of hours on her own with my daughter who has fallen in love with her and wants her all to herself ( ha not chance !! as she is at College full time and cant pick up a poo !!!! :-) ) she has played with lots of toys done a little clicker training and made friends with Jess Sparkie Sassie and best of all Todd has decided that she is OK and has been playing with her today too, she loves the cats and the bunnies and also the HOOVER !!!! she has been thoroughly spoilt by all my friends receiving lots of lovely new pressies and chews but her favourite was made by Nancy's own fair hands. I am totally smitten with this little lady, she was the last pup that I looked at as I thought she was spoken for and I think she is fabulous, Bernadette puts so much work into her pups, she should be extrememly proud of herself so a very big thank you goes to Granma !!

Todd did a small group training session on Saturday taken by Andy and it was great, we did some really interesting jumping sequences that showed up lots of my body handling errors, which is just the sort of thing that you need, its good to see where you need to improve and also I find it amazing that Todd works so much on my body language which is brilliant, I feel so motivated to train at the moment and cant wait for the show season to begin. Yazoo came into the school while I was doing this and she was good, she settled in her little pod with snuggle safe heater in and slept. Then Andy very kindly looked after Yazoo and Nancy and I took all our dogs for a lovely walk.

Today I went to Guildford early then for a walk then to visit Polly and also to do some training, I did some contact proofing with Todd, and a few short exercises with Jess, that Hannah and I had discussed which again showed up some handling discrepancies, and I also just did some plain and simple circles with Corrie, which gets her going ahead. Yazoo again came out and met the lovely Zazzy and then we came back and now have about 2 inches of snow, I wish that it was day as I have been belly laughing watching my dogs playing around in it, this picture is of Meg cuddling Yazoo and she really didn't want me to take the picture ha ha ha I know just how she feels ! and of Todd and Yazoo on the sofa asleep. This little video is of Yazoo playing with Nancy's present. Just make sure you turn the sound down then you wont have to listen to my innate ramblings !!!!

I think little Yazoo and the homemade toy (took me hours) are VERY NICE!

I am also glad that I'm not the only one who talk to my dogs like a looney tune!
