Xmas Part 4: Gus

Xmas Part 3: The Presents

Xmas Part 2: Jackson Helps Chris Open His Stocking

Chris has quite the helper as he opened his stocking this year. Here is the photo series of Jackson double checking all of the gifts to make sure Santa hadn't accidentally put one of his presents in Chris's stocking.

Xmas Part 1: Initial Stocking Excitement


Below is a photo of Gus, our first BARC foster and most recent Berner foster. He is a puppy mill turnover as a result of Prop B passing in Missouri. Most likely, we will see a lot more Berners being turned over to rescue as a result of the new legislation. But, for the Berners that is great news! Gus is a sweet guy who is still getting use to being loved on and the daily happenings of a house. He is progressing quickly though, and his absolute favorite thing to do is snuggle on the bed. More pictures to come later.

More Kitten Pictures

The kittens have been adopted. I dropped them off on a Friday afternoon and they were adopted within 3 hours. They were very cute, so little surprise there. Jsut thought I'd post some more cute pictures to remember them by!

HBMDC Tracking Event

I'm a little behind on the blog, so I'll upload a few pictures today. Last month we attended a tracking seminar with the HBMDC. It was a lot of fun, and definitely something we're intereted in doing with our dogs in the future. Pictures of the seminar:

There were puppies there to socialize and play with:

For a while I thought Jackson was a tracking genuis until he ran straight past the end article, and I realized he just wanted to pee on the haybale that happened to be 10 feet past the end of his track. He may stick to obedience for a while.

Lemon is actually our little tracking genius, or she will be with some training. I think it is a good activity for her to do with Chris. She always has her little nose on the ground sniffing out something, so perhaps this is something she will persue in the future.
