You know, we haven't talked in over a year! Wow! Tempus fugit!!! I have been well... ok, I did have a left toe amputated because of damage when I was little. Nobody knew the extent of damage until dad asked for an x-ray cuz I'd limp every so often. But, I'm fine and doing really well and my foot doesn't hurt anymore.
I'm studying obedience to start competition for real this fall. Dad thinks I've settled down enough and I think so too.
I love agility, so we take a couple of classes each week and then do a recreational class on Saturdays. My big goal is to finally understand the weave... and I'm getting it!
Mom's dad came to visit and I really REALLY like him and he liked me. I got to sleep in his room and take him for walks. He got to come and visit me at school too. I can hardly wait until he comes to visit again.
And finally, this Saturday I found another sport I love... it's called dock jumping. You know how I love jumping into water after my tug? There is actually a sport where you get to do it until your toes turn blue!!! I loved it, did I mention that? It was a class and I spent an hour and a half barking to get another turn and then running and jumping and swimming... it was soooo exciting. Dad said I acted completely crazy... but he promised to let me practice and go to another class and start jumping in the spring for points, whatever those are. The teacher said I was just incredible for a shepherd... but I KNOW that.
That's enough for now di... I won't even mention how good I've gotten at catching moles... but, dad won't let me eat them. I wish mole catching were a sport too. ANYWAY, I promise to talk soon and put up a video of me jumping into the water... did I mention I love it?
Bye, for now, di...
