All Legs

Here is one from a couple of weeks ago. We have been so busy getting pictures out from our weekend trials and getting ready for our Galapagos trip that I hadn't got it posted. This is a Black and Yellow Argiope, a common orb web spider. Orb web means it spins a web like a circle. This is the female - which at almost an inch and a half is considerably larger than the male. I really liked the colors.

The Eyes Have It!

Thanks to the Gloucester Kennel Club for a superb weekend! I have always said - the eyes make the photo. I rest my case!

Horseshoe Bend

October is my favorite time of year to travel on out to the four corners. AZ, CO, UT and NM. We won't make it this year because of a great trip planned to Galapagos - stay tuned! Anyways here is one of Horseshoe Bend taken one early morning last year. The bend is just south of Page AZ.

Well a very very wet weekend at the Tidelands Agility Trials this weekend. Our hats come off for the Novice folks who perservered until the end. Seems like the dogs had a great time even if the handlers got a bit soggy!

Shot Out Of A Cannon

Well not quite but that expression came to mind when I looked at this picture of Cider coming out of a chute at the DKC agilities trials last weekend. That is one darn fast golden!

Here Comes The Judge!

Back from the Durham Kennel Club trials this weekend. We finally had some cooler weather and the dogs certainly showed it. Still there was definately some grumbling over the shorter course times. As the courses get tighter and the times get shorter we definately appreciate judges that can show us how it's done. Here's one of Blair Kelly running the course at Chatham a few weeks ago!
