An angel fell from heaven... and other snippets

Hey Pals!

I'm sorry that I haven't been visiting and posting much this week. Mum has been working late a few nights a week and we are busy getting fit for racing. Our first race is not this weekend but the one after and it has been a bit warm in the last few months to do lots of training.

Mum has been attempting to teach me "shake hands" which is a long and arduous process. Last night after an hour and a heap of treats we progressed to the part where I will move my weight from the shakehands paw and lift it up with coaxing from Mums paw tickling. It will be a very slow and painful process, but hey! Good things take time. Although I'm not sure theres much in it for me... it seems like a useless party trick.

I am getting meat with my bikkies at the moment to use up the Maranui meat we won at a fun event earlier in the year. Its DELICIOUS! I must convince Mother Dearest to get me some more when this load is finished. However she muttered something about " freezer room... blah". So I don't think my chances are very good.

Those of you that were wondering, MOTH stands for Man of the House. Pfft! He spoils a lot of my fun.

Thank you to those who have snuck a peek at my MD Information page. It is still under construction and more details will be added when Mother Dearest gets off her fat... I mean, when Mum kindly has the time to paw more information into the computer for me.

I also see that Mr Yak has announced his new relationship to the World! This is very exciting, congratulations Mr Yak and the gorgeous Ciara!!! Wish you both well in your blossoming romance!

Aw shucks, Koda, you are making me blush again. Kodiak is such a wonderful boy friend. And very handsome too. Do you have a girl friend too?

Have lots of fun at the race.

I think shake hands is hard for labradogs. I learned it, sure, but stupid PeeWee is two years old and still hasn't figured it out. Keep practicing.
