Take care . . . you and Nugget still have lots of training to do. Sending thoughts and prayers that everything goes smoothly.

Thanks the doctor will get back to me tomorrow after he see s the cat scan then make arrangements with the hospital. As only two are equipped for this type of procedure. Hopefully he doesn't think I will have to get the big belly cut but rather put the stent in thru groin , this is only two days In ICUs versus 9-10 the other way of fixing the anuerism. At least Nugget and I can go training tonite hope he doesn't mess up sits and downs

Success success success Nugget did the 3 minute sit and the 5 long down and he did it with about a doz. dogs in ring . This made my nite but all was not great as he did manage to forge twice and he forgot the automatic sits which was a first . This will be easier to fix than the sits and downs. He also had balls rolling around and somebody had a squeaky toy. But stayed and I put a couple chunks of hot dogs right in front of him which he ignored till I told him exercise over. Awesome recalls and 2 of 3 good finishes real fast and his watching was wonderful tonight the light bulbs are starting to come on.

Good job Nugget<: Nugget's Dad - Stay calm - and take it easy! All my prayers that this is safe, quick, and easy!

Class was this-that today. My brain was not entirely there, partly because I got to get up and leave an hour earlier to work at a new location. So left the house at 5:30 this morning. o_O I was fine until nearly 13 hours later when I sat down at class and felt like a sack of thoroughly mashed potatoes.

Directed Jumping - I took his favorite moose toy to class. He was jumping each and every time. ANYTHING to get HIS toy. I just had to harness that and make sure he jumped only on command. I mixed it up, and he pretty much followed direction each time. Tres kewl.

Heeling - Good, except she decided to throw in some "turn in place" left turns and side steps at each left turn. Jacks doesn't always remember he has a butt. Today was one of those days. We also did signals too, which we admittedly have put on the back burner while focusing on jumps here at home.

Figure 8 - Unfortunately, our instructor was right there and continuing where she left off with the left turns. She wanted us to heel box patterns with the figure 8's to train the dogs to tuck their butts in while doing the loop with us. My dog still didn't remember he had a backside that could do things like that. So basically we flunked this one.

Moving Stand - We have worked on this, and he actually did this pretty good. The poor guy looked freaked out as the instructor got a bit too friendly with him doing the utility exam. One issue we had was him anticipating the stand command. He was lagging and just getting ready to stop+stack. He did the moving stand just fine and his call to heel was nice.

Drops - He did these VERY good. LOL. She put a hot dog on the floor behind him. The first time he didn't realize that was there. But after the first jackpot, that was all he could think about. I actually had a problem getting him set up because he was making googoo eyes at the instructor. He did a nice couple drops.

Fronts - We did straight fronts seperately. Just one. He did fine. He was slightly crooked, but not that noticably so. I'll work on fronts this week if I get a chance...

Broad Jump - Did very nicely. Same routine. #1 with treat target. #2 with tossed treat and #3 with me praising him the instant he lands and rewarding him when he comes in. Each of these were straight fronts. Go figure.

High Jump - Set up for 20". His confidence was still running pretty high about jumps after our pre-class practice (anything for his favorite stuffy toy), and he did these pretty good. The dumbbell bounced into the agility stuff on the side there. He got spooked about going in there to get it, but worked throw all that nicely and came back to jump. Very positive experience that I took and moved on.

Dumbbell / flat - Nice eager retrieves, but as before, all focus was on getting him come in straight. I'm not becoming resigned about him having a constantly crooked butt, but I know it's something we will always be working on.

Stays - I mainly worked on training. There was one break, but that was when he knew I was coming in to correct him for moving his butt around. He got up and came to meet me with his "I'm so sorry mom, don't be mad" look. I didn't buy it. This happened at the 3 minute mark. :P I did 2 minutes extra with the sit stay when everyone else was doing down stays. This time his butt stayed locked in place and I went up to reward him and then put him into a down. Down stay I moved all the way over. Stayed in sight, but right there where everyone else disappears out of sight. Baby steps we go...

That's all. Must crash now. ><_><

So, I *think* Faelan may crossed the lack of confidence on scent articles hurdle Time will tell, but Faelan's issue has not been choosing the correct article but rather trusting the correct article has been chosen once he is on his way back. This developed after he needed a 'procedure' for snorfling a burr up his nose and down his throat - losing his sense of smell both after the snorfle event and made worse getting that burr out.

Anyway, last night, while he still glanced back at the pile while coming to front he was coming to front and looking up at me expectantly - whining slightly yet excitedly at delivering his prize and wagging his tail so hard his butt was swaying while he was sitting No downing, no returning to the pile and he stopping within reach of me to front from the full distance.

Oh, hopefully this will be the final hurdle (yes, I know winnying is not a great thing but I fully expect this will disappear without action being taken). And if it doesn't, well okay then its just points off and will need re-evaluation if I choose to go for the big time.

Time to start taking it on the road again - with the tie down board loaded just in case!

Titan showed last weekend to some interesting judging..He worked nice but I was thinking he might have a rib out from the t-bone that Mighty did going for Titan's dokken..Poor Titey puts up with alot from the youngster and never gets mad.
I taught classes last night and let both boys just hang out while I was teaching. They both slept most of the night..We will putz around the house until I can get Titan into the Chiro and then start working them both again.Mighty missed last Friday's agility class and there is not one this week. We are however hosting a NOI practice at my hoome training center on Sunday. Not sure what we will be doing showing or stwearding but I am sure we will have fun!

WOW I can't believe how much some of you are working on!

We had our first "beginner utility" class a couple weeks ago.
Homework is attention with no treats, stay, recall, and touch the upside down food dish.

I'm supposed to work on not being a pez dispenser.

It's amazing to me how much I treat both dogs for no reason all the time.
They're good dogs, look cute, and make me happy so I give them treats.

So, after a particularily horrible, horrible commute last night teecher managed to bring a smile to my face (the commute btw; was well over 4 hours long due to highway closures and all the secondaries being at a standstill).

But, lil Brady now retrieves his bumper and comes on the whistle!!! It is so cute to see him restrained as we restrain dogs for recalls and see him racing off to get his bumper, spinning around and flying on back to front - well with teacher kneeling. Flying ears and spinning tail

Faelan on the other hand is still acting out when the little one is around. He is the subject to 'discussions' on a few drills lately...

No training last night since it was closing in on 10pm by the time I got home and Casey and Towhee had probably given up on my return.

Today we did articles and stays. I tried a few drops of rescue remedy on him, I want to see if it helps him handle stays a little better.
