belated update on Rosy & other things

Rosy certified a while ago, and how is entered in various tracking tests, mostly down south in places in TN & Kentucky. We'll be in Oak Ridge February 13. Should be fun! Should be entertaining!

She's in another agility class, and also in a class called Control Unleashed. This is designed to teach dogs to hold still for a while and to learn to relax while in the presence of challenging things. Some dogs are reactive, some dogs are overly excited by certain things. Rosy is a high drive, high energy dog, so she gets happy & excited about all kinds of htings. This will teach her focus.

Also met new puppy Hubbell, a brown standard poodle and they are getting along well.

Here are some lyrics to a favorite song, just to make all this a little more interesting. ;)

Lyrics of Morning has broken

Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the world

Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day
