                My alarm clock drools and has bad breath. I’m not sure how they do it but my dogs always know when it is 10 minutes before the alarm is to go off. The first sign of this is what sounds like a vacuum against my ear followed by a warm blast of salmon scented […]

Belle Earn Schutzhund 1

November 18, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

I love Belle’s quiet determination. It is a real mental exercise to switch between her and Lektor aka “bulldozer”.

Belle did a wonderful job and she gave me something more. Trials have always made me nervous and have not been a pleasant experience, but thanks to Belle I intend to become more active in schutzhund and actually work toward competing at larger trials.
