Wow, I have been a bad blogger. Life has just been too busy.

Hush is settling in nicely. Bug adores her and she adores him. Ike tolerates her and she tries desperately to get him to like her.

Every morning starts with a brief 5am walk and then a play-fest between the two corgis!

I no longer have one corgi shadowing my every move, but two!!

Hush has been coming to work with me a couple of days a week and is a great office dog. She is very mellow and quiet and everyone comments on her beauty! She has no problems with the elevator which is excellent (especially since we use it 6 times a day!).

Saturday Bug and I had a rally lesson and for the first time in a few weeks I had my dog back. He was less distracted and working really hard.

We are no longer training pivots. I met with the PT and the chiro on the 7th and they feel because the movement is similar to abduction and adduction it is likely very difficult for him with the possible/probable microfractures in his hip. Fortunately, I do not need it for formal obedience and I will just have to lose points in Rally if pivots are included in the course.

We are working on our halts, set-up and having Bug drive into heel. I think he is coming along. We will likely avoid outdoor trials, at least initially, because my Bug finds bugs fascinating!

After Bug’s lesson we introduced Hush to Niche. Niche is a great dog. He was very respectful when he realized Hush was a little wigged out by the bouncing Flat Coat. :)

Yesterday Ike and I had agility class. It was VERY hot and humid. I wondered if my dog who hates any weather that isn’t ideal would want to work. Ha!! Agility is now SO reinforcing to him. He was ON. Towards the end of the night he had the fastest run I have ever seen him do. Wow! Take that heat. :)

The rest of the week should be pretty quiet. Everyone, humans and dogs, will be seeing the chiro on Thursday and that’s about it.

Oh, and on a non-dog related front, John and I are going to see a medium Friday. John’s friend has seen this woman (Maureen Hancock) multiple times, and apparently she has blown him away. So he bought us tickets to go see her! I have had a lot of loss early in my life (my father and my brother) so I am curious what will happen. It will also be a full moon!  I’ll keep you all posted. ;)

Sounds like all the dogs are doing great.
Cant wait to hear about the medium.

I can't wait to hear about the medium. I have always wanted to do that!
