That's a big dog!

We had a fun visit with friends today and had a close encounter with Shadow, a very handsome dressage horse at Dr. Laurie's.
I thought maybe carrots were dog treats, too, but no. (Honestly, it didn't smell very good.) Just after this, Tiller and I took off running. Tiller took me straight to the pond (she'd been here before). She stopped on the edge and I went right in - up to my ears - I LOVED it! Tiller didn't even get her feet wet, but I was soaked.

Our last visit to Kings Gate Club

One week to go, now - our Area Coordinator, Roy, is picking up Duchess on Thursday and returning her to campus for her formal training. THIS is the hard part. Now, everything that has come before this seems so easy! Duchess has a wonderful, playful spirit and a quick mind. I will always remember her patience and gentleness while recuperating from her medical procedures and while learning new commands. She always tried to do her best for me - and she did.
We made our last trip together to Kings Gate Club last weekend to say goodbye and Thank You to the great folks there. We can't say enough about their support and friendship!

Puppy Party - her last!

Posted by PicasaWe went to Aunt Barb's for lunch yesterday - so many dogs and puppies! We had a really good time and everyone behaved, too.

Sunset 'Drumming' on Siesta Key

This was the second time we came to the sunset drumming at the beach. Hundreds of people, lots of noise & music, dancing, food, waves and seagulls. Piece o' cake!! :)

I came across this short video of Duchess with Daphne (her GDP friend now IFT) when they were both about 12 weeks old, last summer. Short, but SWEET. Hard to believe they were ever this small! I think that's the Viszla, Baron (now a career change), with them.
