Xmas Landing

Karen and I had a chance to get down to Hatteras for the holidays. Here is one from Christmas day. The snow geese migrate through here this time of year. A great time to get pictures. Looking forward to seeing you all in the New Year.

Herding at Breezy Hill

Well it definitely was breezy on Breezy Hill. We were at the Collie Club of America Eastern Regionals in Gladys VA last weekend. Thanks to Roy Johnson for hosting the event. We had a great time even though it was mighty cold and windy on Saturday. That didn't seem to bother the dogs though. We had some great runs.

Muddy But Fun!

Well it was a bit of a mud fest at the DKC Agility Trials last weekend. Fortunately it didn't rain much during the trials and once the dogs got their footing the Q's started to happen. The dogs had a super, albeit somewhat mucky, time. Here is a little Lowchen having a great run. Thanks to the club for putting on a super weekend in pretty trying conditions.

Well it was hot enough for a fire engine dog this weekend. At least we didn't have 6.5 inches of rain like we did in Leesburg the week before. Thanks to the Warrenton and PVBSC clubs for having us and putting on a great trial at a wonderful venue.

Last Fish Pic For Awhile

Back from our Little Cayman trip and all ready to get back into the dog world. Just one more fish picture before we get going again. Here is one of a Caribbean Reef shark just down from the site I took the previous picture at last year.

Headed off to the Caymans for a little R & R. Hope we run into a few more of these guys this time. A shot of a Caribbean Reef Shark at Mixing Bowl in Little Cayman's Bloody Bay Wall.

More Wine Than Dogs

A little break from shooting this weekend. Karen had an obedience trial with Spinner in Berryville VA. We went up and did a little wine tasting at the Tarara Winery's Blackberry festival and walked around the National Historic Park in Old Town. A great weekend. Here is a picture from inside the cave where they age the barrel wines at Tarara.

Wet But Cool

It was a hot weekend at DOTC but the dogs stayed wet and cool. This little Schnauzer had a big time with a good soaking before his run! We're inside next weekend at Concord. See you all there!

Time Off

A little time off from agility. A shot of an old homestead nearby. Don't forget to ask for permission. I got scooted off the property by an angry property owner. At least he claimed to own the property and I wasn't in a position to argue:-)

Big Teeter Small Sheltie

Well there is a pose for you. I swear the teeter didn't move until she got to the very end! That's a little Sheltie that can really tear up an agility course once the teeter finally comes down!
