  • I really enjoy reading people's blogs. They are very entertaining - kinda like reality TV, but online.
  • We have been whining, crying and generally begging another friend, Melinda, to start a blog... she is a very talented writer and REALLY should write a book (Martha - are you paying attention???). Well, she just finally started a blog this week: . Very entertaining stuff.

  • And, of course, what would a post from me be without a shot of one of the dogs...

Well... yesterday was nice...

Well, yesterday was really nice (today is grey and rainy)... I had to work in the morning, but then I got some grocery shopping done, ran some errands, cleaned out my van from last weekend's agility trial, and took the dogs for a walk. Then, I decided that it had been too long since I took shots of the dogs in the back yard. So - here is what the dogs did on their nice day outside...
1. Defended the perimeter against imminent attack (this is NOT Betty's best side!).
2. Held secret meetings to overtake the world.
3. Shiny object.
4. Stalked the camera.
5. Attacked the photographer.
6. Betty: "Can we just talk about how PRETTY I am?"

Robin Coursing Video

Robin has not lure coursed in quite a while - 2005 was his last year - the year he finished his Field Championship. He was almost eight years old and I thought that was plenty old enough to be coursing. He was very fortunate during his career to never be seriously injured. He has a small scar in the corner of his right eye from lure coursing, but that's it.
Anyhoo... I was going through some old videos - getting them named and organized and came across some fun videos of Robin that I thought you all might enjoy...
This first one is Robin going to the start line. For those of you that know him from agility and what an "Eeyore" he can be sometimes, well - this is his other side. Turn up the volume - that is him you hear squealing to get to the line. I wish he would show this enthusiasm for agility!!

And this is Robin coursing - he's the one in pink (yes... real men wear pink!!)

Thanks Carrie!!!!!

I learned something new this weekend - my little Sony Cybershot can shoot video! Yipeeeee!!! I was thinking of getting a Flip Video Camera, but this will work just as well. Thanks to Carrie (who has a very similar camera), I now know how to work it - so here's a cute video of Frank and Betty playing on the bed at the Motel 6 this weekend - Robin decided to play referee!
