Our first agility class

A friend of mine convinced me that both Taz and her dog Daisy needed agility classes and today was the first time.

I had almost forgotten but arrived just in time. Only 7 people and their dogs showed up probably cause it was just an incredible day; blue skies and 25C.

We started with some simple obedience which Taz failed terribly at, he was just soo excited seeing all these other dogs. After 30 minutes we had to take our dogs over some jumps and through the tunnel some dogs even went off lead! I think you should not take it all too serious and we definately had a good laugh when one off the dogs started attacking the tunnel.

I wonder what lesson no. 2 will bring!

Something came up

Last week I told you all that I would be writing a little more on this blog over the next couple of days but something came up.

Unfortunately I was summond for jury duty so last Monday I had to go to selection morning never really thinking I was going to be picked. I was.
It's quite a disstressing trial with the charges being murder so I will leave you again for a couple of weeks untill this has gone past.

Thanks for stopping by!

I am ashamed off myself, I have not been writing on my blog for months and you keep leaving all this lovely comments. Not to worry we are back.
Taz has just turned 1 last week and he sure looks a little different than in his profile pic!

More stories about our adventures later this weekend!

My dogwalker Wendy...

I have hired a dogwalker yes it's true but it was o so necessary. December is our busiests time of the year, (Just like all the other people on this planet I guess) and I think Taz was simply not getting enough attention and time to go to the beach. Now Wedny comes and picks Taz up every Tuesday and Friday morning for a good 1.5 hour walk and I do the other 5 days no problem.

Anyway last night we went up the mountain again and this time yes I forgot my camera we were half way up the hill already when I noticed so again another try next Monday......

Oh no it died....

We both said when we had climbed to the top of the mountain and the batteries were empty on my camera.
The views were amazing and Taz was amazing because this was Taz's first climb with his doggy back pack on! He carried our water bottles, phone and keys up the mountain, he looked soo cool!

Anyway tonight we will be going up there again only further up along a ridge so the views should be even better. And this time I will put in some new batteries!

Wow the last couple on months have and will be very busy. Between playing with Taz, running a business keeping twin boys entertaines and trying to keep up a scoial life it seems that my blog is the thing that ends at the bottom of the list.

Things have been good here though, spring has come and we are enjoying our walks Taz is such a big dog now. I can't really see it and I know he does not realise it either as he still wants to crawl on top of my lap every now and then.

Will post heaps of pics soon!

Cesar's Way

My husband gave me this book by Cesar Millan the other day it's called "Cesar's Way" and I have to day it's absolutely fantastic!! There is not a lot of dog training advise in it though it's more a book about his life and techniques he applies. A lot of things make so much sence and it's generally a great read.
He a look at your local library, it's really worth it!

First swim YAY

yesterday I took taz to the beach for a big walk and hopefully a swim. I keep trying to throw the stock a little further every time.

We had been walking for about 30 minutes and the sea was like a lake hardly any waves. I threw the stock a little too far and all of sudden HE SWAM!!!


I was screaming from the beach "good boy Taz" "Go Taz" After that we did it for another 20 times and he swam every time! After a while this lady came up to me and said "gosh you are excited about your pup" So I told her the story and she was like "oh don't all dogs just swim??"
Some people are little silly I think....

Sorry no pics because I forgot my camera.

Finally we are back!

wow it has been such a long time since I have been online!

Don't worry we are all doing fine but as with every renovation it seems to take more time than you think in advance.
My boys are chicken pox free, Taz is fine and summer is on it's way in New Zealand. Yeah!!

My big mission for this summer will be to get Taz swimming I must have the only labrador that does not really enjoy water. He goes in to his belly and then quickly walks out again. Very strange!! I think the best to actually get him swimming is for me to get in there with him any suggestions guys???

Speak to you soon!

Still offline but a quick update

The last couple of weeks have been crazy, with a renovation and a child with chickenpox!! AAHH
Still no computer but I have highjacked this one, (thank you friend!) so I can at least keep you posted.

We will be offline for one more week and should be back at the first of September.

I will leave you with a lovely link, for you who are all on the justlabrador forum you must have seen it already. Please go to www.labbycam.com to watch some very cute puppies just born 2 days ago.

Off line this week

The madness in our house just does not seem to stop. We have temporarily moved into my parents house with 2 kids and Taz because the painters have started.

Unfortunately no internet connection there so I am now at a friends computer..

Anyway I am afraid that I simply cannot updated daily this week since I hardly have access
to the internet. Speak to you all next week.
