Merry Christmas Everyone

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

(just audio - turn up the volume)

My First Christmas

The Big Bag

Thank you Santa for the new toys, rawhide and cookies!

As there was freshly cooked liver, we decided to take the game to a new level.
It's Yer Choice:  Liver Edition

While I maintain self-control,
I can look at the treats or

I can look at the camera
(but it causes white eye)

Assorted cookies on the sofa
mozzarella and freshly-cooked liver on my leg

Earlier in the day:

Unlike yesterday (6c), I had to sunbathe indoors today
because it was -4c (-12c windchill!)

Dreaming of a White Christmas ...

In the meantime ...

I was a very good boy, Santa!
I did not venture onto the barely-frozen pond
in search of my latest passion: SNOW
P.S. Can you pass on my letter to Mother Nature?

Hot Off the Presses

The photo has arrived!

On December 2, at the tender age of 6 months and 2 days, I entered the conformation ring for the very first time in the Jr Puppy class (6-9 mos). I went on to the Winners ring and won "Best of Winners" and earned 2 points toward the title of Conformation Champion. Very exciting day for the youngest V entered!

A great big thank you to Rhonda Giannini for handling me in the ring and for making my first show experience fun, positive and successful!

Agility Equipment

WHY I should never be left alone with agility equipment.

Ran off with teeny tiny tunnel, unhooked 2 velcro tabs,
ran through - got stuck !

Teeny tiny tunnel is now permanently "out of sight out of mind."

43.8 lbs!

"Say, aaaaah"

Why is it that I am the only one covered in mud?

It was rainy and the photos are grainy but Charlie and I had a blast after class

Caught in the Act 2

Note to Mom: If you must wear mitts that look like toys DON'T leave them
where I can reach them!

Foiled by the Camera Hound again!
