In the spirit of Halloween, I thought I would post Mishka's old dress up demo. I have been a bit busy taking OTHER people's pets for Halloween so my guys have not been dressed up yet this year (I do say YET!!).
This was a demo I did with "Sheriff" Mishka herds the "Jailbirds" back to jail!!

These were taken a LONG time ago ... But Mishka would still 'try' to herd ducks dressed or not if I would let her.
Yep even the ducks had to dress up for their part as "Jailbirds"

Dinner Perks!!

I have had a few people ask me if I ever feed "raw" to the dogs. YEP WE DO!!

Normally I buy chicken parts once (or more) a week, to supplement their premium dry food. All my puppies are also introduced to raw before they go to their new homes as well. This is easy to get for me year round but the cost does add up. However, one of the great "perks" of living in the Midwest in the fall is DEER HUNTING SEASON!!

This year I have been happy to get fresh venison for the dog!! It's bow hunting season and we have yet to open the shotgun season ... so there should be plenty more to come!! Lots of deer and VERY inexpensive!!

Please excuse the photos ... I had loaned my good camera out when I got my first deer hindquarters so had to use an old one.
First night I got the parts home, Shine (Carver's daughter) was just thrilled to get a good nibble!!
Malone was more than willing to carry it away if I would have let him.
He was able to remove the fur and skin no problem.

Then Malone got smart, he held the leg down with his paw and just gnawed away.

Candy was more than happy to chew away at it too.


Not much left when the dogs were done!!
Another 'perk' to living in the country!!

E's Puppy Socializing Service

This past Sunday the Cloud puppies went for an "outing". A good friend offered a "Herding Fun Day" at his farm. Chris's daughter Elizabeth had a great time occupying the pups!! She crawled right in to their ex-pen and rolled around in the grass with them!!

They just had a GREAT time with her. E also named all the pups for me too!!

Of course this is "Jag" he's my boy and E liked the name I had already chosen to him.

That's "Dot" (or Girl #3).

This guy (Boy #2) got the name "Tag" as his ears (one up and one down) matched her dog "Tag"

Spirit was having a great time today!!

Spirit was having a great time with the Jolly Ball today. I got these two quick frames of her this afternoon.
She flips the ball up in the air all on her own.
She would occupy herself with a ball like this for hours if I would let her. (and yes you can see she is wet ... when she gets hot she takes the ball with her to the pool so she can cool off and I don't end the game by putting the ball away).

Great photos from owners!!

I got these photos awhile ago, but I've been so busy I just didn't get it uploaded.

This is "Rocky" (isn't he cute!!!). Rocky is from the litter of Sydney and CH. Coree. As you can see he loves his buddy the cat. (His owners assure me that he and the cat get along great!!)
I love getting photos like these!!
