It has been a very busy time for us here at Say Yes over the past 7 days! It started with Adrian Rooyakkers coming to give an awesome three day handling workshop. The focus was on running European style courses aimed at helping  those of us heading over to the UK for WAO. That ended last Wednesday and then on Thursday John and I teamed up to host a four day obedience workshop.

Yesterday I turned my attention back to Swagger in order to help my, now 12 week old, puppy find the joy in retrieving. I have been adding value for bringing ME toys while working at convincing Swaggie that there is more fun to be had with me than anywhere else other he may find.

This video shows how close the distance between two points may be when one decides it is time to “be the squishy ball!”

For those of you that may not be able to view the video here I will also post it on my facebook page (

Today I am grateful to have been blessed with such a wonderful puppy!
