Swiss Chard Anyone?

It's a balmy 55 degrees today.
Let's put in some cool season crops!
I like to sit on the seeds to keep them warm.
It's sort of like hatching an egg....
Mom says this plastic cover will be better than my butt.
Stanzie helps with the primroses.
I would like to bury this glove and this toy.
Then we would have a whole crop of gloves and toys....
I'm an ideas dog!!
Think Spring!!

I Love You Miss Maisy!!

You all know I'm a big flirt and I like the lady dogs.
But I do have one very special gal in my life. She wants to get married, but she lives in New York and I live in Oregon. I wanted to show her how much she means to me, so I made her this Valentine.
She sleeps with it under her pillow. : )

So, Yesterday in the mail, look what Miss Maisy sent me!
A big box with paw prints
And a love letter...I'm still blushing.
And cookies with my name engraved right in.
How did she know, that the way to my heart was with food!
They are so very yummy!
I wish you were here to share them with me, my little Wheaten Darling!
Love,
Wyatt

Are you strong enuff

...TO BE MY MOM??

Agility and the Camera

The agility trials at the Rose City Classic, were the perfect place to practice with all the settings on the camera. Spectators cannot get too close and no flash can be used.
Perfect setting to use zoom and anti-blur.
I still got some blur...
 
This German Shepard, belongs to Wyatt's agility instructor!
Look at her go! (Barking the whole way!!)
'Tory' won four 1st place, one 2nd place and a 4th place in the international jumpers course and qualifier for World team tryouts.
 

Such a great family event!
One of these days, we will get the perfect shot!!

Until then...FUN FUN FUN.
Note to self...go fetch purple tunnel out of the garage and practice more!

Have you spotted any relatives?

OKAY, we are almost done with the dog show pictures.....
We can't help ourselves. How do the judges ever pick a "Best in Show"?

Attentive

Movie Star
 

Waiting

more waiting
 
Hoping
 
Encouragement
 
Smiles
 
Reflection
 
and a little stage fright
 
Prancing
 
eyeing the competition
 

....and a breed we have never heard of,   Berger Picard


Broadway is calling for you, Doggie!!
Okay, now we are done!
Well, except for a couple of agility pictures tomorrow.
Then we will stop...Promise!!

Flat George goes to the dog show!



 First stop:
The Airedale Booth!
 Flat George, helps the "Oregon Airedale Society of the Willamette Valley"
George is a Welsh Terrier,
but we crown him honorary Airedale for the day!
He did fly all the way over from Shropshire England, it seems only fair!
Be sure and check out Flat George's World Tour 2011.
This dog has got a few stamps on his doggie passport!

We visit with Wyatt's Mom, Raven.
"Wyatt, are you being a good boy?"

Here's another relative of Wyatt's, Sophie.
She's telling her mom, "stop yapping and take me shopping!"
Sophie heard they were giving away dog treats and toys : )


Checking out the free samples...
Mmmm, Ocean Fish Flavor!


Checking out the stuffies...
Ooooo, Collars with BLING!
  
Oooo, more BLING!
These dog shows have something for every dog!!
Dang it, George left his wallet home with his passport...
Do they take travelers checks?
