Today....

Very original title, huh? I am tired! : )

Last night HonorBug braved my evil-steep stairs. It was really cute to see him working up the gumption to try it. He is one brave bug.

He also tried to sniff Ms. DJ (Cockatiel) who said, "I don't think so" and tried to peck him! He's curious, but not stupid and one peck was enough!

Today I took the Bug to work with me and to Ike's vet appointment. Everyone at the vet clinic thought he was gorgeous. And he is! He has an appointment for a heartworm and Lyme test in a couple of weeks.

Ike's foot is looking good and not sensitive to the touch. FINALLY!!

After the vet appointment I went over to the in-laws' to practice weaves and tunnels with Carmie and Ike insisted on practicing too. He says, "I miss playing with you!" We are entered in a CPE trial this upcoming weekend - two days because it is our club and local. I am planning on seeing how Saturday goes. I might end up scratching on Saturday. Of course, if he acts like he did today I won't. On Ike's docket for the rest of this week - step-stool work.

Carmie was great - she obviously takes great joy in the agility game. I am really concentrating on not rewarding Carmen for hesitating. Now that Katrin pointed this out, I noticed I do this with Ike when we walk. Funny how once something like that is pointed out it becomes so obvious. Carmen's tunnel performances were stellar, so I just need to work on my patience and remember Carmen has a brain!

I brought Mr. Bug out too. I think he was a wee bit overwhelmed by the days events, so we just worked on focusing on the momma and "come." Right now he is asleep next to me. I think I have a new best pal, which is awesome.

Traci: He's a luv!! And gorgeous to boot. I am a lucky gal, that's for sure.

You would be amazed at what a wonderful ambassador for the breed Monty is. :D I think he needs his own fan club with membership cards and everything.

Pacco: I can't decide if Ike misses trialing but he def. misses playing agility with me! he says being injured is a BORE!

Monty says, "Don't I remember someone mentioning t-shirts for my fan club? And I think that memmbership dues should be in cookies ALL FOR ME!"
