Fun Stuff

My infatuation with Bluebirds continues as the 2nd brood of the summer arrived in late July.

July 31 The babies hatch sort of
3 little ones and 1 still in the oven and Mom and Dad did a great job keeping the area clean...
August 15th and the 4 little ones are doing well . I suspect they will be off on their own this week sometime and I hope to catch their departure...
August 15th

A long Summer

Well it has been a long summer... Only business, no trials, very little training and almost a complete turnover in staff (thank you Pam and Ron for your continuing on with us.)
Classes start the end of the month and many changes come with them. With only 2 trainers (myself and Ron) I had to cut down to 6 classes 3 obedience and 3 agility.  I realize this is a far cry from the 14 we have be running and a lot of people are going to be upset but it is the best I could do on the short notice.  finding the quality of trainer I am looking for is becoming a monstrous task and the cupboard remains bare... So it does not look like the schedule will change anytime soon.

Summer Time

As always our training slows down in the summer time as most of our students are vacationing or transporting kids who are vacationing... But Things are still hopping around the kennel.. We are fortunate again this year to be able to watch our Bluebird family....

Classes Over looking Back

When Classes end I always go thru withdrawal as my evenings are suddenly open and the Training Facility is not calling me... Summer has set in and the manner summer chores are instead beckoning me... But I always like to look back at the pictures of classes.. I never take enough and I am not a good photographer, but here are some of my better photos..
Champ----Mia--- Sadie

To all our students (4 legged and 2 legged) we miss you and hope to see you again in the fall....

AKC Nationals update

Sorry no pictures but a quick update.. As we roll into day 3 Our two Little dogs Cari and Maddie both are sitting in 5th place in their respective jump heights.. Cari at 8' and Maddie at 4 ".. Very exciting..
Ponto had a miss que and took a wrong jump and dropped out of the top dogs.. but he completed the course correcting his mistake and remains in the running..
Miss Issy has developed a weave pole issue and has given Cindy fits.. Miss reliable in the weaves has become unreliable.. I am sure Cindy will fix the problem today and get back on track..
So proud of our 3 entries...
