Another good weekend

Princess Yazz :-)
I had another really good weekend, on Saturday I went on a Nicky Garret training day with Todd, which was brilliant, I came away with more than one thing too Nick !! I love Nicky's way of handling to me it makes total sense, the weather was brilliant and Todd worked really well, I wish I had videoed some of it, I must remember to take my tripod and video next time I go on a training day. On Sunday I took Yazz on Hannah's Co-ordination and balance afternoon, she really enjoyed it and so did I, she took all of the things in her stride and I came away feeling very proud of her, she also managed to concentrate even with both her sisters there, whom she adores ( not sure that the feeling is mutual thought I think there is an old saying that goes..... 3's a crowd lol lol ) and Sharon's lovely puppy diesel too who she really fell in love with at Mid downs show. Before we went to the class we took a walk on Chertsey meads with Bernadette and Dennis here are some pictures of Yazz with her sisters, on her own and also of Todd and Corrie dripping wet just come out of the river, thanks again Dennis for the pictures.

Lovely weekend

I have had a lovely weekend, it was lovely to see every one at mid downs on Saturday, special well dones go to Andy and Kizzy and Bernadette and Zen and Leah and Hex, not a bad start to the year :-)

I was also extremely pleased with Todd his contacts were just as I hoped they would be, and I was disciplined with myself and made sure that he was in the correct position before I released him, which is why I have had to spend the whole of the winter proofing and re training his contacts in the first place !! a small handler glitch pointed him straight to the dog walk instead of the weave entrance in the Burgess qualifier, but the rest of the round was good. My jumping was a total disaster as I brought myself a few new pairs of tracky bottoms and the pair I chose to wear to the show started to fall as I was running so I decided better to stop than embarrass myself any further !

I wont comment about Jess as I ran her like a complete half witt !

Yazz had a ball at the show she met lots and lots of pups and there was a bit of a sheltie convention at the end, I think in total there was about 7 shelties, and surprisingly there was not too much noise from any of them, not even mine !!!!!!!

I was meant to go to the Chippenham show on Sunday, but decided to stay at home with Meg and have some girly time, she has been working so hard lately and wanted to do a photo shoot for her art with Todd as the white rabbit from the Mad hatters tea party, it was great fun, and Todd was a saint he just sat in his outfit for about 1/2 hour, I think he secretly loves being dressed up, specially when there was 1/2 a cup of tea as a reward !! here are a couple of pictures of them having fun and one that Meg has edited for her art.

I even managed to get my grass cut, I think that must be one of my most favourite things in the world is looking and smelling a freshly cut lawn, shame mine has a few craters in it now !

The last picture is of Todd and his most favourite ball of all time, its a shame its pink lol lol and Yazz trying to kill the camera :-)

Pictures and crufts well dones :-)

I just have so much catching up to do, so I will start here, here are a few fantastic pictures of Yazz taken by Dennis. My little girl is just amazing she is fitting in to life with us just brilliantly, Todd and her are such good friends they make me laugh daily. I am continuing to do lots of socialisation with her, she does a really good puppy class on a Tuesday night with six other pups, she is learning to learn with lots of distraction, which is really good for her, and before I end this post I just want to congratulate Bernadette and Zen, and Nicky and Indy, Toni and Minx and Kite and Dawn and Puzzle I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through the champ finals, it was brilliant.
