Christmas was lovely! Blaze had a great first Christmas :) He got a HUGE Jolly Ball which he ADORES! And a Bully Stick, some balls, and 2 Wubbus. Oh, and 3, 15" bone stuffies. Jake the beagle likes those the most, though ;)

Pictures will come. I got a new Nikon D40x so it's taking some time to get used to it.

It's slow. . .but busy

So, it's pretty slow around here. Yet, it's extremely busy. LOL! How's that possible, you ask?

Well, I'm was (was being the key word here, thank goodness!) really busy with midterms, Christmas parties, and volunteering. It's been a pretty boring week for Blaze so far. Not much physical exercise but we've been doing some mentel exercise. Right now we are working on Heel.

I fear it will continue to be boring for him. I've got cleaning and school all day tomorrow since we've got family coming over for Christmas (Blaze says "PEOPLE! WEE!"). Then Friday he goes to the vet/boarding kennels for the weekend. He'll have a blast, though. He LURVS the gal their who look after him and he's such a puppy when it comes to playing with other dogs.

Oh, BTW, if I ever call Blaze "Mr. Wiggle Butt", don't worry. He gets all "wiggly" when someone talks to him (just ask anyone that knows him, LOL).

Anyone who reads this, could I ask a favour of you? My friend just lost her dog in a very tragic accident. Could you maybe give her a few prayers/good thoughts?

So, for now, thats all. I'll update with Christmas pictures and the "loot" that he got after Christmas! :D

Long time no typie! Sorry!
Blaze and I are doing well. Blaze and I are getting closer and closer each day. He's a wonderful dog.
Well, it's getting colder outside now and Blaze has started agility now since we've got some free time. Just some simple jumps and tunnel and walking up a teeter. Hehe, he LURVS the tunnel!!! Here is a recent picture of him. Right after a hard rain and wind that made all the pretty yellow leaves fall down!

Herding Day

Today Blaze and I went to a lesson. He did well. He's still got alot more maturing to do, but I think he'll be really fun to train.

But, you can totally tell I'm a newbie at this. LOL The sheep went between the pannel and the fence so Blaze needed to go around the pannel to the opposite side of me to move the sheep out to the other pasture. My trainer had the gate open about 5 feet, just enough room so the sheep could go through. And I was trying to make sure Blaze didn't go with them.
Didn't work.
He ran straight past me and my trainer dispite her banging the crook right in front of him. So he runs probably 800+ feet away chasing the sheep. So my trainer is standing there laughing -it was pretty funny- "you need to run after your dog". So I start running down there. Then Blaze stops still about 500feet still and just stands there like "Oh, wait, what AM I doing here?" So I use this time to yell at Blaze "NO!!! HERE!"

One good thing about having a punishment sensitive dog is that when you say "NO" he comes running. So he runs and hops like a mad dog to me through the pasture! Go Blaze!
We stopped with that and he played with her six month old pup.

It was SOOO much fun. I got to "work" her trained dog, Mazy. It was totally awesome. At first she was like "Uh, mom, that THING is giving me a command?" Then she was taking commands from me. It was really an eye opener for how much you have to put into it.

I have alot more respect now for those that do this.

Then we had some time to kill till my parents got back. So we got a "swimming group" together of about 8 other Border Collies and went to play in her pond. Haha, I was soaked by the time that was over. We took the dogs in the pasture and walked while the dogs roamped around and dried off. Blaze was having so much fun. He got along really well with every dog there and played with a few. And was great on his recall. Then we STILL had time to kill so we played with him on the dog walk and a-frame. He had no problems with either and we did a little SAR thing on the dog walk where he had to change directions on it.

It was lots of fun! Can't wait to go back. Sorry, I didn't take any pictures. We did alot of hands on things so it was hard to get any pictures.
