It's so true- agility is crazy expensive! Emma has her excellent jumpers title and is one Q away from her excellent standard...Her sister just got a MACH- impressive as she is a lab! Maise our youngest has yet to start trials, but will be crazy good... Her brother does dock diving and is going to nationals next week (on their first birthday!) We want to try it with Maise, but haven't had any events close enough to try! She is a much faster swimmer than her brother, and leaps like a crazy dog, so I think she'd be great!

I love dock diving! Nikon does Ultimate Air Dogs. He's not good at all (best jump is like 12", he jumps really flat, trying to get him to pop up more without a prop on the dock) but he LOVES it. There are a lot of families and little kids that come watch UAD events here and Nikon is a crowd pleaser. He barks like crazy and then I have him do a few silly tricks like a leg weave on the dock.

Maise's brother did something crazy like 20 feet at 9 months old! He's better at speed retrieve! I would love to try it with Maise, but would need to start her with Trey- for some reason, she's a bit hesitant to try certain things but gets really competitive with him, then is hooked! He lives about an hour and a half from us, so we see him occasionally for play dates! It's hilarious to watch them together- no fear! She is not like that at all with Emma, our older dog, who is actually her great aunt... Both are obviously from the same breeder, and he has been breeding them for athleticism! All five pups from Maise's litter are going to be working dogs, mostly agility, one dock diver and another one will do agility and field trials. It's great to see dogs doing stuff and having fun!

I've used that one in the picture and my dogs think it's a treat. I put it in the bowl with their food and they always eat it first.

The other thing is that supplements are not regulated by the FDA like most medications, so quality and quantity of the glucosamine in each treat can vary dramatically! Good brands are Cosequin, Dasuquin, and Phycox as those companies police themselves!

Thank you!!

INCREASE in a Danger for Smaller Dogs

hi dogsters....

i imagine this has been discussed but just in case not reccently- my
areas local TV news just ran a story on a sudden increase in dogs
(mostly smaller breeds or puppies of bigger breeds) chocking on chips bags and and a few others (not sure if all mentioned are the foil-lined type)- reaching in to get the enticingly smelled goodies.

Increase in this type of packaging combinded with the now colder weather season for many areas? They didn't say....

SOLUTION: REMEBER to CUT a HOLE in bottom of the bag(s) before tossing out.


I don't think I have the amount of responsiblity needed to have a pet. Simple kinds of plant-care are about my speed; i have also inherated at least half-a-Green Thumb for my mom's mom! Animals are amazing beings and wouldn't want anyone's fur-bud to have an early demise, esp something easy to counter.

My dogs are loving the snow! We have about two and a half feet outside and they are wrestling and leaping into it! They were even sliding down the hill on their backs yesterday!
