Happy Paws

As you can see I am not sure about these happy paws.

Happy Paws


My Adventure Dog Boots from Trailwear for Happy Paws came today. Kathy Warren said I might need them for Herding Camp at Windsong Herding Camp This is looking more like BOOT CAMP not herding camp.

Open Standard Agility Title Run for Charlie

It was not perfect, I had an off course and refusal, but it was good enough for second place and my Open Standard title. The alphabet soup behind my name has less "N"s for novice and more "O"s for Open. It is time to play in the Excellent Ring.

Calamity of Errors in the Standard Agility Run

Tom trips and falls so I jump off the table to check on him then enter the wrong end of the tunnel and then I fall off the dog walk. The rest of the run was great. You have runs like this sometimes.
