A Notable Bookmark

Road trip this past weekend. John, myself & all the dogs packed into the RV. We drove convoy style with John & Lynda and their trailer Penny & Yvon and their fifth wheel rig all the way down to Virginia for a three day trial. The trip down was longer then necessary due to some […]

Sunday Afternoon’s Entertainment

Any stuffed toy will do when Buzzy is jones for a suckie.

For Buzz’s entire life he has had the habit of sucking on stuffed animals and kneading like a kitten, while holding the toy in his front paws. I wrote about this peculiarity in my book  “Shaping Success.” When Feature was a wee baby she used to suck & knead as well but it was always […]

Puppies You Just Hafta Have . . .

Eight week old Shelby . . . oh the indignities our first dogs have endured.

So I have heard from some of you that you are curious why I did not mention Encore in my two posts last week about how I picked my puppies. It was for no reason in particular other than brevity, just as there was no reason why I didn’t mention how I selected my first […]
