Recent pics of my crew, from Sept and early October. Most of these are just phone pics. I've had a smartphone for about a year and while the camera is really handy (especially for training videos), I need to make more effort to take my "real" camera out!
Helping me collect worms for fishing
Legend enjoys swimming SO much he sometimes has to wear a vets because he swims way out into the water and I worry he will get tired.
That's one way to tether ball. Nikon totally bent the pole. Luckily all the kids are grown and no one plays with this but the dogs anyway.
Legend prefers the old chair; Nikon the ratty couch
Legend's favorite activity - frisbee!
Laser eyes begging for treats!
Mr. Serious Face
Nikon giving digging lessons *sigh*
Legend's always taking my garments and "nesting" with them
At this point, Legend got very sick. Our best guess is that he had a reaction to some doggy NSAIDs prescribed for a sore leg. He was vomiting everything (including just drinking water) and had liquid blood diarrhea for several days, even after starting meds, and lost over 7lbs in a matter of days. He went 5 whole days without eating and was on 5 different medications. It was a scary ordeal and he looked absolutely miserable throughout. He would sleep all day and all night. As soon as we walked into the vet's office, he'd lie down and zonk out. It took two weeks to recover (one week of being sick, another week of slowly regaining appetite and making sure all his digestive organs worked properly).
Indy my pit bull who is Legend's best pal was pretty upset that he didn't want to play for a week!
Finally, my puppy got better
Best buds, tired after flyball practice and playing all evening.
Yesterday, Legend went tracking for the first time. He did two puppy scent pads and then a short straight track.
Nikon also tracked and did obedience. Afterward, he was being a jerk, blowing off a recall, so we sent my friend's border collie out to herd him back to us. He was kind of weirded out by this, but it actually worked!
By the end of the weekend, everyone was happy, healthy, and TIRED!
