Two years, it is hard to believe. Chi has given us so much pleasure. To have a dog so tuned into me is wonderful but sometimes I wish he was slightly less enthusiastic about agility and dancing with dogs. He has a demo on tuesday dancing the Gay Gordons with me, we are not ready!
The sleeping photo comes from the bedtime routine. David puts all the dogs outside, then when they come in Chi is first in line followed by Voe outside the bedroom door. They wait in line until the door is opened then file in to their sheepskin rugs and stay there until morning, This routine started by accident but Chi is very fond of his sheepy and always has his head on it.
Chi is very proud of the agility photo, it was taken at our new agility field adjacent to our house. Yes we have 24 hour a day everyday access but since we took it over the snow or ice has stopped us from using it but just wait until the spring and I am determined that Chi will listen to me and show his true potential because his speed and coverage of the ground is fantastic as are his touch points and weaves. Chi will be joining Cash at the Woodside show on sunday lets hope that Zindelijk has to be pronounced at the prize givings!
Cheers to Chi's doggy and first parents, woofs to all brothers and sisters.

Inca was a little star, he got 4th in the 1-7 jumping. He was off his head in the agility ring, inside really seems to blow his mind. LOL
Cruz broke his wait in jumping resulting in a E and the agility, well it had a DW but he did go on it the 3rd time without me having to hold his collar...... maybe we are getting there again.
Wish had a fab time watching.

I think the mistake's that I made were because my dogs could just not hear me, I was not close enough to help them with handling. Inca was doing a cracking run in 5-7 jumping I called him to turn but sadly he did not he went on to the wrong jump, I loved the course thanks Lisa.
When our 4-5 was moved to another ring it was put in first, this was great because the ring next to it was not running it was less noisy. Sadly with the weaves being un-pegged both my dogs got knotted up in them, strangely thou I train on un-pegged weaves all the time but these were the plastic shorter spaced type, I was pleased how they ran. I was back indoors by 1pm with no ribbons insight.
Cruz did freak at the DW again, I have worked really hard the last two weeks with him, playing ball, lots of treats, sending him up the DW at three different training venues with many different approaches, all this with no worries.
I thought we had it cracked again until the show, he avoided the jump before the dreaded DW as he must have clocked it already, he tries to leave the ring, the judge kindly said take him by the collar to put him over it, which I did as soon as his front paws are on the contact he runs over it?????????? Maybe this has helped as the last show I left the ring with him.
He happily does them in training with no problems, I have taken away the name and just say go go go like in training. I ran yesterday full of confidence that he was going to do it because he has done so well at training. I think he needs a shrink to clear his head. Seriously any suggestions welcome.

The vet rang in the afternoon to say that the op went very well but they are keeping him in at least overnight. :-(
I'm hoping I can bring him home today, yet another cage to put up for the next two weeks, but with Kane being seven he can cope a lot better than poor Meme.
I am concerned how to get him in and out of the van without having him jump as the wound site is just inside his hind leg, he does have the lower cage.
If you have any idea's for what to stuff Kong's I would love to know. I hope its not to noisy with fireworks this weekend as this will stress him out.

I was going to post this last week after the Sunday, but with all what has been happening I did not get a chance.
I went to WAGs show the end of Oct, Meme did a fabulous clear round in her agility stopping on all her contacts beautifully. Cruz still has a hang up about the DW but did a really nice round in jumping and helter-skelter, he got the best G4 dog. Inca was a star he got 2nd in accumulator, 3rd in a agility and 4th in helter-skelter which was a real blast of a course, he got best G5 in all the above, this was he last G5 WAGs. The jumping he worked well but I wimped out on laying the weaves which put me the wrong side and I was unable to help him out for the next jump. He has found another gear. LOL

Kane's results have finally came back, I did briefly put a bit on here about him but I was so terrified it would be cancer I could not write anymore so I deleted it. The good news is the biopsy taken from four areas of the mass are all clear of cancer, but the vet still wants to take another deeper aspiration when they open him up next week. He is having his hernia repaired and will now lose his man hood bits so no more puppies for him, hopefully this will help in reducing his prostate.

This was 8:10am I rushed her straight to my own vets in the hope a vet would be there, by luck as I got to the door my vet walk past inside and caught site of me, they don't open till 8:30am. She immediately examined Meme who was clearly in some degree of pain and discomfort. They sedated her and did an X Ray this showed clear of torsion but showed a dome shape? the vet suggested we endoscoped to see what was going on. She called me in and showed me a lump in the stomach wall OMG a tumour I held back the panic to find out what do we do now. The option she suggested was to open her up and take a biopsy. I had to leave my little girl there and ring at 2pm.
The time goes so slow. Thankfully I have a very good friend who I met with to take my other dogs for a long walk together. Whilst out walking I got a phone call from my vet, my heart missed a beat, she said good news there is no lump, its gone, very confused as to what we both see? she now thinks it could be a toxic poisoning of some sort, she has been on IV fluids all day with IV antibiotic I ask my vet if she can come home tonight and they agreed to let her home but to go back in the morning for more IV. I know she will be more settled here at home. More later I'm going to get my little girl.
