Saturday in the Park...

Certainly not the 4th of July....but nevertheless, still no snow here in Vermont and with temperatures in the upper 30's with brilliant sun we HAD to make good use of the day. So I packed up everyone headed to morning run-throughs with Teller and then stopped for a 'run' on the way home.

Three dogs are hard in the event that we run into kids, bikes, random unfriendly dogs, etc - especially if I also have a camera. So the boys played in groups of two - Kippie/Teller and Murphy/Teller - much easier for me to keep an eye on everyone. PLUS, it was really good for Kipling to have a good tantrum at being the one left-behind in the car for a little while (think toller-screams) - he will need to learn to be in a crate near an agility ring (and be quiet) while I run Teller - might as well work through this disappointment now. Advantage power doors, from 50' away I have the ability to open and close 'his' door. It's pretty simple when he screams the door closes...When he's quiet the door opens (and he can watch). I think he had three closures before he settled and watched quietly.

AND....They're OFF! Down the backstretch!

And Kipling at full speed. He's looking like a 'yearling' now. A bit gawky.

Murphy settles in to graze, all the udders have been retrieved. Must be time
to go home now....
