That is really neat! I wish Pedigree wasn't crap in a bag, because they do alot of great things...

So the easy, yummy treaties are great and all...but I want to know your REAL secret! How is your microwave so clean?!

Wow! That sounds like a ton of fun, I hope you and Tango have a blast. Maybe next year Haiku and I can go. She loves "retrieving" and it'd be funny to see her out there with real gun dogs!

You should (at the very least) travel with a pocket of dog hair. That way when you get to your hairless hotel bed, you just pull 'em out and presto! more like home. We have a pet free bed since my husband is's still really weird NOT to have something warm and fuzzy sharing my bed. On the other hand, Haiku is a pillow hog and our cat is worse than any alarm clock (she KNOWS when it goes off and tries to wake us about 10 minutes before!) so maybe it's not so bad...

Actually, Haiku was sitting on the back of the sofa watching Mythbusters with us.

I like this! I did the same thing recently. I realized my little grey horse always gets put on the back burner when I'm short on time, energy or enthusiasm. Now I have Truby Tuesdays and we're both so much happier for it! Our great minds, they're thinking alike!

I was hoping I wouldn't have to post pics to prove she's alive and well and above ground. But it looks like I have to!

Great example! Driving in the city, UGH! I know that the longer I work with Haiku doing the clicker training thang the better she is. Surprisingly so! I know if we're Training, she'll do her stuff and work hard, but must of her light bulbs and flashes of true understanding come when we're NOT Training and just out doing. That's when I get *my* light bulb that says "hey, positive training WORKS!". I too tend to worry and fret over her "obeying" in less than ideal circumstances, but the more we work on skills like come, sit, settle, etc, the better she is all the time! Today I had her in a very distracting environment (the barn) complete with cats, horses and bugs. I usually tie her in the aisle and she paces and whines the entire time. Today she saw the towel I laid out as a settle mat and well, settled! Instead of fussing for the entire time, she lounged on her towel and relaxed! What do good Haikus get when Beth is all done with the horses? A long sniff-walk in the April sun and some doggie ice cream on the way home! And my reward for putting in the time, treats, knowledge and effort? A happy, relaxed dog that does what I want her to, cheerfully!
