Ribbons and a Prize

Usually Barbara grooms me herself(not well I might add) but she had me tortured by a professional this time. Carrie at Max's Dog Wash made me look quite spiffy.
Yesterday afternoon we drove to the Winston-Salem Dog Training Club as we were entered in Rally Novice B. I really haven't had much chance to do Rally since last December so I was very excited. Lots of nice people and dogs. I was the only Gordon Setter at the trial and many people admired me. I guess all that dog grooming torture was worth it. We did very well in our run and I took 4th place in my class. Barbara was very pleased and I got an entire sausage when we came out of the ring!
The white ribbon is for 4th place, the green one is for qualifying. I now have another leg toward my title and the little star stuffie is my prize.
I will not let Ambrose have the stuffie because he will destroy it!

Boyfriends and Girlfriends

You know me - I like to hang out with the boys! Here is a picture of me with my long time boyfriend Trotter. So handsome don't you think?
Ambrose has his girlfriend Scout. They have known each other since they were little puppies. She is quite the tomboy and that is Ambrose's type. No frou-frou girls for him. He likes girls who run and play hard. Scout is really, really fast.
Here is a photo of me with my boyfriend Amos at Day School. He has been coming every Tuesday and Thursday for almost 2 years. We are doing down stays in this picture but mostly we like to run and play bitty face games. Unfortunately Amos is moving! His person got a new job and Amos is of course going with her. I will miss him so much.
Think of me tomorrow when I am having extreme dog grooming torture. I have a couple of demos coming up and Barbara says that I have to look my best.

It has been a year!

It has been 1 year since we posted in our blog! Unbelievable! I have no words to describe how slack Barbara has been. She is our special person but I can tell you that we are annoyed with her that she hasn't been posting about all our activities or helping us check in with our friends. Ambrose and I hope that you are all well and we will check in with you this weekend.
Barbara has a new computer and is in the process of transferring stuff from the old one to this one so who knows where all our photos have gone to. The one above is an old one from Christmas! Here is a more recent one of me.
And for those of you who wonder what Ambrose is up to, here is one of him with his St. Bernard girlfriend, Bella. All they do is chew on each other's ears.
Barbara has gotten some new creatures - fish. She set up a tank in our training studio this summer. I don't know why since she doesn't seem to be training them.
I didn't mind having them there until I found out what she is feeding them - sun dried baby shrimp. Do you believe that? We have never gotten shrimp, sun dried or otherwise in our whole lives and she is giving it to these untrained fish! Shocking! Fish aside, I am glad we are back in the blogosphere and we will keep you up to date with our activities. See you soon. Niamh and Ambrose
