Going to train my dogs today

Even if it rains, I am going to train my dogs today! I am such a lazy trainer, thank god I have good dogs! Here is the quote I am following this month:

Arthur Ashe (tennis player): "One important key to success is self-confidence. An important key to self-confidence is preparation."

Hex and Zen and I are gettting prepared! I have some sequences in my head that we need to work on. Hex needs work on picking up obstacles that require her to push away from me especially if I am behind. She would always rather curve in towards me and needs work on long straight lines. Zen is going to get some remedial work on her contacts and getting her to send to the bottom of the dog walk when I am somewhere else far far away!

I have heard from some of the pups owners and they all seem to be doing well. Here is a cute photo of Wizz visiting the local library. And a photos of Zeus sleeping with his new border collie brother named Anton.

Fat Boy continues to do well. I am feeding him mushed up dog food a few times per day and he likes it. He is going to start coming places with me next week as I can't bear him being home alone!

I have thought of a cute registered name for him to play on Hob-b's registered name (which is Akadia Helluva Hob-b at Obay) and to play on an agility theme.

OBay Helluva Good Time! What do you all think? Any other ideas. All of Hob-b's relatives have a "hell" theme! Here mom is Hellsbells and her grand-dad is Hells Ablazin.

Lovely to see the photos of Zen's babies in their new homes. Think the name for Fat Boy is great!
