We did it!

Yesterday Raja and I went for the Canine Good Citizen Test and she passed!!!! I was so excited!!! This week we are going to check out the Rally class and see if it's something we'd like to do.

We just got back from the most relaxing and enjoyable camping trip! I wasn't sure how it would go or if Claire would like it . She not only liked it she LOVED it! Once she ate breakfast she was off and running , daddy and her took morning hikes which left me to peace,quiet, coffee, and nature for about an half hour every morning. The weather was great and the night stars were awesome... we even saw the Milky Way... I haven't seen that in years! Hearing owls at night ( and Raccoons getting into my sisters box of cereal , she heard them and saved her cereal!) and all kinds of birds in the morning. Nature trails that we saw deer, toads, frogs, plants,and a snake to Claire's delight!! It was great and I did remember my camera so I will have lots of pictures to scrapbook. I feel refreshed and recharged. Have a great summer everyone!

Raja Graduated!

Tonight Raja graduated from obedience class, she did wonderful and I was very proud of her. I really enjoy working with her. I'm going to sit in on a Rally-O class, and an Agility class and see which one I think we could enjoy together. When she is older and a little more settled I think I'd like to use her as a therapy dog. I wish I had some pictures of tonight but once again forgot camera ( so did my sister....runs in the family!) I didn't take my purse ( no where to put it). I'll take some new ones of her and post them soon. Has anyone done Rally or Agility with their dogs and if so what was it like and how hard to learn? Everyone have a great weekend!
