New Family Member

Well, we do indeed have a hopeful new family member joining our "pack"! Details, pictures, and such will be shared this weekend. I'll be meeting his breeder in Pittsburgh, PA which is about halfway for us both (6-6.5 hours). :)

Excited would be an understatement!

Trying this blogging thing again

A friend and I recently made an agreement that we'd both make an attempt to blog about our dogs on a regular (at least weekly) basis. I'm not sure yet what exactly mine will consist of - likely a mix of training notes, random pictures, and video from trials.

One of the biggest areas I need to work on in my training sessions is documenting them - I tend to keep mental notes about what happened, but rarely if ever write down how things went which makes it a bit more difficult long-term.

In addition I've realized that due to various technology glitches I don't have as many pictures of my dogs as I'd like, which is something I'm becoming all too aware of as my dogs get older. Dewy turned 7 this past September, Rio turned 6 in October, and Merlin turned 5 in September also.

We may also have a new member joining our family this year, and I aim to have plenty of pictures to share. :)

I think that's about all for now - going to finish setting up this blog and then focus on getting some homework done and websites updated. I spent a fair bit of the day playing outside with the dogs and now am playing catch up! I plan to update in the next day or two about our first attempts with Get On The Ball work.
