Kim - you will have to fill me in on the other spotty blogs that I should check out! I thought it was funny that you are already following Tess and Jazz - Jazz is a half sister to Steeler! :-) And Gambit is Steeler's sister! I love all of your pictures too! If I were in FL you would be doing my photos for sure!!!!
Kathy - Great to hear from you! I heard you ran into my obedience trainer (Esther Zimmerman) at either the Clicker Expo or the APDT conference in KY (I can't remember which) - talk about a small world! I've been following Joey's accomplishments via LaDonna's blog page. Steeler is doing pretty well with obedience and rally - at least run thru wise. I just need to get over my anxiety with Stays and then I think we will be ready! In Nov we did a pre-novice run at a real trial and Steeler actually did pretty well - we wouldn't have qualified because his heeling was not great - but he held his Stays which was all I was really worried about.
Lisa - I love checking out your blog! But I can't let Steeler see all the things that he is missing out on! Unfortunately the easter bunny did not show up for him today. But he did get a new tug toy yesterday for being such a good boy! I've been taking him to trials since he was a pup. Not quite as often as I did with Keegan - but enough so that I think that he is pretty familar with that environment. It is my nerves that cause our problems.
Jules - Thanks for helping me get started! Now if I can just figure out how to add pictures and stuff. LOL This is looking like it could be addictive!
