Fun times

Seamus was playing in the house the other night and got Legend all excited. 

Friday my friend Linda and I went to a local riding club to work with the horses. We loved the indoor, outdoor, and trail options. Riesling was a super good boy and I’m excited to go back!

In the afternoon we took Legend to try a new swimming spot and a short walk I the woods. She loved it and has quite the pep in her step these days. But does not eat dog food.

So a lot has happened

I’m not sure where to start! So I guess Legend is first. She continues to do well. She doesn’t eat dog food but maintains a solid diet of  random carbs and chicken breast. And lean hamburgers. Today she also had a few dog treats. She acts mostly normal. After 3 weeks of antibiotics her bloodwork was a lot better so we are continuing for another 3 weeks. She had a lot of fun playing tonight. 

Epic is getting ready for his first obedience trial so we spent some time training at Lowe’s tonight. 

Lyric spent time looking cute 

I got in a few rides finally! 

Friday we plan to go to the local riding club so that  should be a good experiment!

Last weekend I went to pick up some new rescue dogs. 
Ace is a big mix breed puppy who is super sweet and loves toys. He’s fostered by someone else. 

Seamus is an older mix who was on his last day at the shelter. He is our new foster and will not be available for a while. Obviously. 

But he’s a total sweetheart!

Other dogs coming to the MOKAN website soon

I think that’s all for now!

Agility, adoptions, and more

Busy, fun weekend! We did three days of agility at our local NADAC trial.  I didn't get in quite as much training between the one and the last one as I had hoped, but it was still good experience.  Friday night was Touch and Go and Barrelers.  His contacts were not awesome in touch and go so it was good training experience for him.  Also he has no discrimination skills but I knew that.  This as a first time for both of us in barrelers.  He's never even seen a barrel but handled it like a pro and we had a lot of fun and picked up both Qs.  Legend came along and enjoyed visiting with friends.

Saturday was not a very successful Q day but lots of good experience.  We tested our distance skills in chances and worked on on some things in regular and picked up a few Qs in weavers to finish his first title! Legend came along again and had more fun.  Candy came too to socialize. After the trial we went to Rowan's puppy birthday party and they all had so much fun playing and swimming and eating cake and hot dogs.

Sunday the little man went 5/6 getting one regular, two jumpers and two tunnelers to finish both those titles.  And as an added bonus Candy got adopted!  All my puppies are gone and now just autumn needs a home.  As another bonus it was our wedding anniversary and we got done early enough to go to dinner!

My friend Melanie and her kids came to town for a visit this week. They arrived late Sunday and Legend Lyric were quite excited to see their friend! As was I! I worked Monday morning and spayed their new kitten. Then we went down to Branson for a bit. She also did my nails with her dipping powders and they look great! She’s getting really good. 

Tuesday she made Mexican dinner for us and we hung out around the house. The dogs loved having playmates and getting extra snacks. Riesling got a little paint job. 

Today we went to visit our other friend and meet her new baby. After a good visit I headed back home and Melanie stayed there for a few days and will head home over the weekend. Then we will all meet again in El Paso in February!

Good days

Yesterday Legend seemed particularly perky and even played ball! I don’t know what that means so we are just taking it for the gift that it is. Still only eating treats. 

And today is Epic’s 3rd birthday. Don’t know what I’d do without this sweet, smart, silly boy. And as an added bonus we got his DNA back over the weekend and he’s 2/3 cattle dog and 1/3 Border Collie! I knew he was perfect and couldn’t love that result more!
