Heat Waves and Agility Don't Mix

This weekend mom took my brother and I to another agility trial. It was only my second time going to one, but Cisco has gone to lots before. Now I know where they sneak off to when they leave me here, stuck with dad. My first trial was at the Bernese Mountain Dog National Speciality in Gettysburg. Cisco wasn't allowed to come to that one. It's so much more fun without him and I made sure to let mom know this whenever she came to get Cisco and not me. She kept telling me if I kept it up I'd get stuck in the crate and it would collapse on me again. Our trial was in a building it was really cool in the morning but by the time the afternoon came around it was really really hot in there. Mom kept putting these cold towels in my crate that were cold to step on, she said they would keep me cool. Mom was really worried about me and the heat, but I was fine. I was barely panting and just as comfortable as could be as long as she didn't take Cisco and leave me.

Mom said our goal for Saturday was for me to keep up the first and last bars. Well on my jumpers run, I took down the double that was the last jump but I kept up the first jump. On my standard run I knocked over the first bar, but I kept up the double at the end! Hey mom, half and half isn't so bad! Mom says we're going to work on my jumping abilities this summer and won't go to any more trials until the fall when it cools off.


They came back!

They came back! They left me for five whole days. They shipped us off to grandma and grandpa's and didn't even think twice about it. Did you know we're not allowed on the furniture there? But we got lots of treat and lots of walks so I guess it wasn't so bad. And the best part? When I saw mom and dad coming for me, I started bouncing -- if I bounce long enough I can open the door all by myself!


Silly Goldens!

Last night we're having a nice quiet evening with the exception of my brother (Cisco the Golden Retriever) dropping slimey tennis balls in mom and dad's laps. Well dad got sick of it and in order to distract him, pulled out the light sick. Cisco falls for it everytime. He chases that red dot all over the house. Back and forth, back and forth. Please, how stupid can you be? I tried to tell him he was being silly. I growled at him and kept on biting his ears. He just dragged me across the floor chasing that stupid spot. Fellow doggies, I beg of you, don't stoop so low as to ammuse your humans, by chasing the red dot, it's an embarassement to the rest of us.
