Yesterday we did more work on Thor's water returns. He has been honest so far. Today I will do a Dobbs drill that should give me an opportunity to correct cheating. We also did some doubles that included land-water-land retrieves. Simple but for concept. Overall a good day.

Back to New York. Buffy gets her stitches out today. Waiting for the vet's ok to give her some work.

Yesterday did some yard training with Thor. Hope to get out into the field this afternoon.

MUCH TOO HOT!

We went out at 7:30 PM, did some simple yard work, and some retrieves---not far. It was still too much and Thor got hot pretty quick. Time to do less.

UGH
Hot again today. I hope to do some yard training after obedience class tonight, at about 8 PM. Hopefully no thunderstorms.

We had a terrific training session Friday afternoon. I haven't run Buffy in 3 weeks. We did a very tight double (actually just about an over/under) first thing out of the truck and she nailed it. We than ran some blinds.

Thor did a double and I was very happy with it. We followed with some yard work on casting. I am already planning for him for the rest of the week.
