    I finally have a group shot!

    That actually includes me! Nothing spectacular- it's a phone picture. But I was happy to finally have a photo with all three boys. :) This was taken after a demo that all three boys performed in with me this morning- it was Patton and Pilot's first time doing demo work and they rocked it...

    Meet Sherman the French Bulldog

    My newest foster. A coworker told me she had a "friend" who was a "breeder" and had a puppy returned at 7 mos for some behavioral issues. I gave him some advice, but without seeing the problems first hand I couldn't do much. He asked if I would just take him and fix him and find him a good place...

    It's about time he earned his keep

    Patton had a good day catching plastic, and I had a good day throwing it. These are his goods. Well, he's a little young for the beer steins, but I think I can help him out there. ;) Untitled by DJetzel, on Flickr

    Contact lenses?

    K, I need help. I have a chain eye doctor that I don't trust all that much and don't have any real knowledge about contacts. But, I need to find some new ones, because I'm out of whatever brand it was my doctor gave me with my exam. I want something I don't have to take out at night if...

    Ayla: Deformed Rescue Pittie

    I did a little shoot about a week ago for the rescue that I volunteer/foster for, to get some decent pictures of a dog we've taken in that is in need of some expensive surgery so that we could apply for grants. She's finally healthy from having pneumonia? I believe, so they are getting ready to...

    Ball tugs and fur savers

    Shameless secret Santa info thread. :p Who likes fur savers on their dogs? If you don't, why not? For those who train or play with toys, do you like using balls on a rope, or on their own? Any balls you're interested in trying? And go!

    Do you use the same commands for different things?

    This is typically a "no-no" in dog training, so I'm wondering who does it, and with what words/functions? I've found myself having the same command for many different things, and also numerous commands for the same thing. Recon knows "back" - sometimes just "back" or sometimes "back up"...

    The naughtiest disc dog

    I was chastised for not sharing more. SO. Little miss "I wanna eat all your plants and roll around in the yard with amazing zoomies at 6am and not go back to sleep" got to play some Frisbee this morning. I'm sure my neighbors think I'm certifiably insane at this point. She comes off as...
