End of a good year

Upside down doggie

Upside down doggie

It’s been a quiet few days recovering from the long drive to and from Victoria.

We didn’t stop long while we were there, and tried to see as many people as possible. Poor Jaxon slept the entire day when we were back, and seems to have finally recovered from all the excitement of Christmas.

It’s been a big year overall, and we know all of you will have had a huge year as well!

Hot summer days

Melting doggie

Melting doggie

It’s officially a hot summer already, and no signs of cooling down until after Christmas…. maybe.

We had summer agility training yesterday, and the dogs found it hot hard work. The humans also melted in the heat. Our mate Mawson has a great recap of training here.

Recently Jaxon has had a big problem with standard poodles (only black or grey), and German Sheppards.

Every time he sees one or other of this kind of dog, he barks crazily. Jaxon is normally very friendly and social, so it’s been a major change in him to be so reactive to other dogs.

So I started changing things up.

Charity trial wrap

Bushfire Appeal Jumping trial

Bushfire Appeal Jumping trial

It was a great night at the Dogs NSW Bushfire Appeal Jumping trial. There were three rings running, nearly 750 entries, around 250 dogs running, and about 180 handlers.

Needless to say, walking the course was like rush hour in the city, and we had to stand back each time to wait for the crowd to dissipate before we could take a good look at the course.

Thanks to the wonderful Agility Club members at NSDTC, we had amazing food, great company and we even had a cheer squad.

Complete with Chandelier!

Christmas Party Antics

Christmas what?

Apparently Christmas is just around the corner, and the parties have started already.

It was the NSDTC Christmas party today, and all the dogs had a great time being dressed up by their owners….. or more than likely it was the other way round!

Bathurst Trial

It’s been a couple of days since we returned to Sydney, but we’ve both now caught up on our sleep & are fully rested from the big weekend. Which isn’t that hard for Jaxon as it’s been raining, so agility training is off the cards for now.

The weekend was well run by the Greater Western All Breeds Club, and each ring ran really well. The judges were clear & had a laugh at the lighter moments. Everyone was really friendly, and Jaxon managed to bribe treats out of many people thanks to his charms and good looks….
