The Other Hazard

The other hazard of working from home With Dog. I keep trying to leave the door open since it's gorgeous out, and Indie has been dragging sticks in all day. I put the stick out; he brings it back in. I put the stick out; he brings it back in. I put the stick... oh, you get the picture.

He and Ebby have one on the floor 5 feet away from me and I can't decide if I care enough at this point to bother to take it away again.

For Their Comfort

I'm working at home (mostly because I've been working since this morning and haven't managed to pull myself away to actually, like, drive into the office yet), and I've wanted to go grab the mouse for my laptop for about 45 minutes now. My arm is achy from using the laptop touchpad mouse. Why didn't I get it then? If you're reading this entry, you already know why. There was a dog resting her head on my foot. You can't get up if there's a dog resting on you -- everyone knows that!

Dog Days

Today went to the dogs -- really! This morning we went to Goose Creek with Indie and Katie. Today was Indie's first time to really play in the water. He had a blast, and ran through the creek like a crazy man. Then for the afternoon, we took Ebby to a park in Chantilly and took a two-mile (-ish) hike followed by a visit to PetSmart. A good time was had by all and everyone is sacked out tonight.

Latest batch -- all photos from this weekend instead of January like the others Posted by Hello

That picture of Ebony in motion reminds me of how everyone laughs when we do recalls in class. I'll put her in a stay and go 20 or 30 feet away -- when I call her, she covers the space in about two gigantic bounds. She's really something to watch.

It was fun comparing her recall and Indie's last week. Indie still tearing over, but he had to use normal-dog steps to cover the ground.

Yippee! The photo below is from January and has snow, therefore is painfully old (of course) but I'm playing with some new photo software, which means that I'm going to try to post photos more often. Fun!
