Hi All! Wow! Winter is here & we have a couple of inches of snow to prove it. I love the snow! My Grandma was here from Florida last week so Mom didn't get to play with me much because Grandma is NOT a dog lady. :-( But things are pretty much back to normal now. We aren't taking agility lessons this winter, but sometimes Mom & Dad set a small course up in the barn for us. Mom has been working on a new trick for me--backing up when she tells me. We have been working a little each evening in the barn. She got this idea when she places me down the aisle of the barn, tells me to stay & then throws the ball to me from the other end of the aisle. I am pretty good at catching 'air balls'. I use my front feet. But Mom wants me to back up farther away when she tells me. I wasn't understanding so Mom decided she needed to teach me what the word 'back' means. She said I am doing pretty good but sometimes my backing is a bit crooked. But Mom is very patient & always tells me I am doing good even though I know my backing is crooked. During Thanksgiving break from work, Mom & Dad washed all the barn walls & stall walls & re-stained them. They do that every 2 yrs & the last time they did it, I was just a baby & drove Mom crazy trying to keep me out of the stain. Mom & Dad have also spent a few weekends in the woods cutting wood for our camping trips next yr. But the last time we all went to the woods, I was playing with my Weim sister & got a million stick-tights in my coat. I got some really nasty briars stuck in my hair too so I went running back to Mom to help me get them out because they were hurting. Mom was NOT happy. When we got back to the barn it took Mom 40 mins. to get me all brushed out. My Weim sister had her hoodie on because she has such short hair & gets cold but she never gets all stuck up with briars like me. :-(
Well, that's about all folks. Hope everyone got lots of goodies from Santa. We all got some yummy treats in our socks, my Weim sister got a new hoodie, Louie got a HUGE bone & I got 2 new tennis balls! :-)
Bark at you later............Shelby
