Another Night Park Visit!


I like Mom's schedule as long as she continues to take me to the park at 10pm to play with my Jolly Ball! This si three nights in a row! Maybe she can make it 4 tomorrow! We don't stay long-but boy I have fun! And a young boy threw the ball for me tonight! It was late-mom was wondering why he was up! Mom and I also ran this morning-only 2.7 miles-but I think it made mom happy!!! I think she's planning on another run tomorrow morning, so I must sign off so I can go to bed! Good Night!

A late night park visit

Mom got back from work tonight at 10pm-and guess what? She took me to the park to play with my Jolly Ball again! WOW! Two nights in a row! The lights went out around 10:15-so the basketball players left, but mom let me stay about 5 more minutes chasing my ball. i'm now sitting at her feet panting! It will be a good night sleep for me tonight. Mom is saying something about running tomorrow morning-we'll see how she feels when that alarm goes off before 5am! Good night friends! Hopefully I'll be able to visit your blogs tomorrow!

A lucky Monday night

Mom came home from work last night around 8:45 and guess what? She took me to the park to play with my Jolly Ball!!! I was so excited. First we went to the store-she said something about getting milk for her tea, and since the grocery store is right next door to a park-she stopped. And when she went to the back seat and picked up my Jolly Ball-WHOA! I got SO excited! We've never gone at night to play Jolly Ball! I ran all over!!! And got super exhausted! And we both fell asleep when we got home. And it's made a big difference this morning-because I'm not racing around like crazy waiting for exercise! But I know mom is going to work again today.....maybe tonight I'll get a park trip again?

Good morning

Good Morning. It's sunday and grandpa is going to take me on a walk and possibly to play with my Tennis Ball. I think he's leaving today-his suitcase is out. But that means mom will be home today! I'm still not happy about seeing a suitcase!

Mom has been working long hours again! She started a new television show called Mad Men and has been working her butt off. But she always makes time for me! We went on a 3.14 mile run yesterday and today a 3 mile run! My normal petsitter is in Japan on holiday so I've had a different petsitter in this week. The first day she came I barked at her-it had been a long time since I had seen her, but after a few moments I was fine and off we went on a walk!

Tonight my mom flies to Tennessee without me to run in some race called the Country Music Half Marathon. I wish I was going to Nashville with her-I'd get to see my big boy cousin, Banner. But mom is leaving me here since it's such a short trip for her. Grandpa is staying with me!! I bet he'll take me on long walks and I'm sure he'll cook yummy food...he always gives me yummy bits!

Grandpa should take pics of our weekend together! But since mom will be out of town she wont be able to post pics unless he emails her......I hope all my doggy friends have a great weekend! And run fast mom!

A weekend of herding at the ACDCGLA Herding Trial

Well Mom and I spent the weekend in Escondido at the Australian Cattle Dog Club of Greater Los Angeles herding Trial. I was entered in two runs on saturday-one ACD only and one all breed and then one run on sunday-ACD only. Well it wasn't a good weekend for me-I didn't qualify in any of my runs. On saturday, I missed qualifying by one point! I had a qualifying score but I lost 50% of my points in my outrun,fetch and drive! Everything else in the run was good! And today, I would have qualified, but lost 50% of my points in the cross drive and panel! The silly sheep bolted to the pen! Mom and I tried to get them back-but they were being more stubborn than me! And I'm a cattle dog! Oh well! I did win a raffle prize! A bag filled with Tennis Balls!!! Mom said I'd like that better than a ribbon any day!

While we were there, we watch a cattle dog named Mr T run in Advanced Cattle! WOW! What a cattle dog! He was amazing! He was jumping up and flipping in the air. mom said it was the most amazing thing she had ever seen! He unfortunately got timed out-but it was a fantastic run!

Our next attempt at two qualifying runs will be in Llano on May 31st and June 1st! Lets hope mom and I get some good practice in before then!!

My week so far....

Well, mom has been very busy this week. Her monday and tuesday were very long. But yesterday I got to go to work with her! She went to Panavision to prep another camera package for another TV show she starts on friday called Mad Men. I took my tennis ball with me and all the people that work at Panavision came to say hi to me! It's fun! I also get bacon bit treats when i go! I love going to Panavision! Mom took pics but she's a slacker! This is the picture from our 3 mile run on tuesday! Mom is taking me out on a run right now before she goes to work!!

Bathtime and more herding!

Last night, after we got back from a long hot day in Escondido herding cattle and sheep, mom took me into the big bathroom, and closed the door. I knew I was getting a bath because she never closes that door unless I'm getting in that enclosed ceramic thing with doors! And she washed me! Mom said I was very dirty after herding! I rolled in the dirt after jumping into the baby pool yesterday! But after my bath I rolled all over the house! So what's the difference mom???

Mom drove me down to Escondido today-and guess what? I got to herd cattle for the first time!!! I didn't really know what they were-they are funny looking sheep!!! We had two runs-the first time, mom had to be told where to stand in relationship to the cows and me-it was kinda rough. Cows don't act the same as those silly sheep! But the second run we had was better. I stayed behind the cows and mom stayed toward the back of the cows and we moved them along the fence. It was different-because I was allowed to get in there and nip at the heels of the said I was a good girl!

Mom left for work around 1pm-after we had gone on a 2.7 mile run- and I thought I was going to be alone for the rest of the night...and then I got my surprise!! Grandpa and i went to the tennis courts, went for a walk, watched movies and ate sausages! It was a fun friday!
