Quick Bio:

December 21st 2004

I like to sit on the back of the couch. I like to be in my crate by myself. I also like to play with my sister, and wrestle with her

Being picked up, having my picture taken, when Duncan barks and spins when mom and dad go to work

Favorite Toy:
Her little sister Mila, and any toy Duncan may have

Favorite Food:
They are all my favorites. Anything I can steal off of Dad's fork is always the best, the look of surpise on his face!

Favorite Walk:
I like to walk anywhere, cause that means I get cookies for "heeling" nicely

Best Tricks:
If you say, "go get dad" she races around the house until she finds dad, and then attacks him with kisses; learning new tricks, she picks them up really fast

Arrival Story:
Lexi came to be in our family when we bought a new house, and figured we could now get a playmate/girlfriend for Duncan, our sable male, who we wanted to breed. We had wanted a sable female this time, but regardless of color, the pup had to be around Duncan's size when full grown (12"). We talked to our breeder, and she had two tri females that she thought would be good for Duncan, and would be quite close to Duncan's size. We couldn't decide which pup to pick, they both were so cute! Well, Lexi was chosen for us, as we took so long to pick, someone else chose the other puppy, and we were left with Lexi! It worked out perfectly. She is so sweet. She has become the lover in the family.

We were lucky, Lexi ended up being almost exactly the same size as Duncan, but weighing a little bit more. She is very stand-off-ish, but quite cuddly and loveable once she accepts you into her world. She has been a joy to train, and picks up on new tricks very quickly. She is so laid back and easy going, not much phases her, but she really perks up when the magic "c" word is spoken!

Forums Motto:
C is for cookie, is good enough for me!

So, I had my first Rally Obedience trial in November. Mom was pretty stressed, but I don't know why! I know my stuff! Ok, I know why! I wouldn't go down for anything! And then once I would go down, I wouldn't let her walk around me. It made me nervous to have her behind me!

Trial day came, and we went out there, and we wowed them all! We only placed 6th in the Novice run, but we got a 189! But mom was worried cause none of the "hard" (ones I have trouble with) exercises on that course! So she was worried about the trial the next day, which would have all of the other exrecises! Duncan ran in the Excellent run, but he did anything but Excellent! He got the most NQ's for the course that day!

The next day, mom walked the Novice course, and was even more nervous! Everything I have trouble with was out there! So, we went out, ran the course, and came out with a 194 and a second place! Mom was so happy! She had expected me to get low to mid 180. To get high 180, mid 190 was terrific! I am well on my way to getting my Novice title with an MCL on the end! Duncan, once again, did waaaaay less than excellent, and was again the winner of the most NQ's on a course! Oh well, maybe he will be better in the trial in February! I get to run in the February trial if I don't get bred this month!

We had Duncan's scare just before christmas (read his diary for all that info) but all in all, Christmas and New Years was good. We had a big play for New Years with 28 dogs in total! Great fun!

Well, Happy New Year all, and may you all get lots of belly rubs, cookies, and couches to sleep on!


Happy Fall!

I hope everyone had a good summer. Mine was alright. We spent a lot of time in the car, which I hate. But we got a new car (an SUV really) and there is a lot more space, so I can lay by myself, and no one will bug me!

We met lots of new dogs at the dog beach. We met some greyhounds that had just come to Canada from the UK. They were pretty neat. They sure liked to run. I was totally willing to share my toys with them if it meant I could chase them. But I could never catch them. They were SO fast! But we had a blast. I hope we see them again!

Mom said that we have to go to the opthalmologists in the middle of September since we are going to have puppies. Have to make sure that we don't have any genetic defects that we could pass on that would make our puppies less than desireable. That also means that I have to have my hips xrayed on my 2nd birthday. Duncan has had his done, but he doesn't remember it!

I have been going to CD/CDX classes with Duncan this summer, and mom says that I get to go in a trial next month! Yay! I am excited for the trial, I can do everything perfectly, except anything that has a STAY in it, like the stand for exam, and the long sits and downs. But mom has been working on it with me, I just don't like it when she goes far away. It means that I have to go farther to get the cookie from her! Oh well. Hopefully I will make mommy proud. Daddy says he is proud of me no matter what.

I hope everyone has a wonderful fall, and make sure you make time to play in the piles of leaves!



Sniff! Sniff! Sniff!

Ok, so I am in heat right now, and I really don't mind. Things aren't all that different, except mom makes me wear my puppy panties. But that Duncan, he is going to drive me, and mom and dad crazy! He keeps sniffing and licking me, and won't leave me alone. If I lay down, he lays down right behind me, with his nose yo my bum. If I am standing, he is standing. somtimes if I am laying, he does sheltie circles around me, sniffing my bum every time he comes around that way.

Mila is in heat too, and I don't know what it is about her, but I keep trying to dominate her. She doesn't like it, and then we fight, and mom doesn't like it when we fight. Oh well, maybe Mila will learn to let me dominate her!

I just wish Duncan would leave me alone! I can't do anything without him being RIGHT there, sniffing and smelling and watching everything I do! It is enough to drive a doggie to drink!
