We received a "Paw It Forward" package in yesterday’s mail from Blue and Iris!! Included are some Ike and Bug friendly treats (no chicken, beef, or lamb!) and a Kong Braidz toy. OH!!! Gimme! said Bug. I have been eyeing these for a while with the sneaking suspicion he would love one and now we know....yes he loves it!
Thank you, Blue and Iris!
Now for the next part of the game. I'll send a "Paw It Forward" package to the first two people who reply saying that they want to play (please include your e-mail address so I can contact you for your physical address). Then after you get your package, you "paw it forward" by sending packages to two more people. Very cool! Anyone want to play?
Ike is the first dog that is purely my own. We have overcome some big hurdles with his fear of people (how can you avoid them!) and continue to work on building our confidence in the sport of agility. Ike takes life at a much slower speed than I do, which is a challenge. My goal for our partnership is to figure out a sport or joint activity that Ike and I can enjoy equally and excel at together. This would be in addition to Ike's #1 sport, lounging on the couch; which I don't really enjoy or excel at.

Carmen is a 9 yo salt-n-pepper Miniature Schnauzer from the same breeder as Ike. I started working with Carmen in the winter of '08 after my DH told me we could not get another dog until the end of 2008 (enter Bug 5/08). Little did I know how much joy she would take in agility and what a spitfire she would be. We are having a ton of fun working together. Unfortunately, Carmen was diagnosed with PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy) in 10/08 and has been retired as her vision continues to change.
