We have also been tagged

We have also been tagged. This is photo is from the 5th folder 5th photo. This is Tyson and myself at the shows in Boise, Idaho October 2007. Tyson finished his RAE title at these shows and was retired. Tyson registered name is ASCA-OTCH Hill View's Ain't Misbehavin', UD, RAE, U-CDX, ASCA-UD, CGC. Tyson now spends his day as a couch potato loves his back scratched and he is enjoying retirement. He has been the most amazing showdog for me and I have loved every minute that we showed together, he took me on an amazing journey and we had so many wonderful experiences together from showing at the 2004 ASSA Nationals to taking a High in Trial and High Combined in May of 2003, and finishing his ASCA-OTCH in July 2006. Tyson was ranked the #4 sheltie in the country for his Rally Obedience work Advanced level for the year 2007. So I have tagged the following.

Only 8 more weeks until I see my sister

I'm so excited for March to get here, first I get to go on a vacation with my hubby and my sister Marion and her husband John. I have not seen my sister in 19 years and I'm so excited to see her. We had original planned to go in February of 2010 and do a cruise but when the economy went down the drain we moved up the cruise. This cruise is to celebrate my 50th birthday which is in August and our 30th wedding anniversary which is in September and we are renewing our wedding vows on the ship. We are doing 3 night in Fort Lauderdale followed by a 10 night Southern Caribbean cruise. When we get back from the cruise I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we will be getting a new puppy, one that I can show in the breed ring.

More photos of Cody doing scent work

I got the right one
Could it be this one

Which one is it!

Look at me I got it right

Scent work is the hardest thing to train a dog to do, and it is performed in the top level of obedience. Cody is still learning. They have to retrieve both leather and metal articles with your scent on, which is placed out in the pile.

Pratice, Pratice, Pratice

Every other Sunday I take Cody Akadia Wildfire to training, it's a 45 minute drive from my home to Sandy, Utah where the training center is located at Willow Creek Pet Center. So this Sunday I decided to take the camera enjoy the photos. Cody on a straight recall
