I'd think her neck would hurt!
Last Saturday, we finished Naomi's CGC classes and she passed her test. I had tears in my eyes when she earned that title knowing how long and how hard we worked on building her confidence to overcome some of her shyness. She didn't love the strangers or hands on tests but she allowed it and didn't run away. She even walked up to meet a stranger, sniffed her hand, and then got a head pet. HUGE HUGE HUGE steps for our baby girl. The video is just a few of the test items she had to complete to earn her Canine Good Citizen.

OMGosh, they are looking at our real estate!
But our ghetto box? YIKES!
That house is so old and not what I would think they would like.
Please stay, please stay, please stay!
We've lived here 27 years and have never seen a bluebird in our yard. We started putting out mealworms for the wrens and ta-daaaaa, we have our first bluebirds. We have been lucky to see both the female (here) and the male all week long so hopefully they will stay all summer. We have been talking about getting a birdhouse for them to see if they would nest in the yard. Very excited to see them.
out of many, today! She is OCD ready to catch and ... well, ask the chipmunk she finally caught. ick. Thankfully, after I got it out of her mouth and put her inside, it got away. I hope she never gets a squirrel, their teeth are too big and they are mean. Seriously, these are bird feeders, please stay off and out of the yard, you idiot critters.
... someone is very big bored.
Izzi will figure out how to nap on it.
Our bed making helper.
