Catching Up

Seems like all I have had time for over the past several weeks is the picture posts that don't require much time (puppies consume a lot of time!).  Its not a bad thing, but some things falter because of it.

We're getting ready for our yearly vacation to the beach next week.  Really looking forward to it.  This year we have not 1 but 2 new members of our family getting to go, Tucker & Madalynn.  

We're also getting to share our "island" with my mother-in-law this year.  Looking forward to showing her all that Hatteras has to offer.  Its always fun to take people down there that has never been or its been a really, really long time (which is her case).

With the heat we haven't been hitting the woods as much as I would like (that and finding the snake last month ... YIKES!).  We did get an early morning walk in this weekend and were able to turn the dogs loose for a bit to play and chase each other.


Always a good sign when the tongue is hanging low!
Was finally able to find time to hit the trails with Laura this week (had been far to long).  Tucker is still to little to partake in that so its was just Teach and his brothers.

Afterwards Laura wanted to take a horse down to the ring to practice some obstacles in preparation of a judged trail ride coming up.  I walked Tucker down to see what he thought of the horse and also to let him run some energy off.

Love how happy he looks with his tail up ... you can just see him prancing down the road.

"Hey ... what is she doing?"

"Oh ... well that's interesting"

"Quick this way!"

"See ... I can pose on a block too"

"Let's play!"
That's a quick look at what's been going on with us since I've been sort of MIA the past few weeks.


  1. Surprised you can let your herding dogs in the ring at the same time without chaos ensuing! Mine would get in the way big time!

  2. The GSD gets in the way and likes to chase the horse down some but over all they are all pretty good and stay out of the way. And the horse knows to watch as well. Trail riding with them all helps as well.

    When my girls first met a horse, they had mixed reactions. Kori was very curious, and Scarlett wanted to keep a safe distance.
    Looks like Tucker won't have any problems!

  4. It looks like you have been super busy! Have an awesome vacation!
