Weeks 15 and 16!

I know! I know! Where have all the Cedar pictures gone? No worries! I still take photos, I just haven't been posting them!

The first are from last week, with Cedar in his 15th week.....

And these I took this morning....in his 16th week.....

Cedar has started Puppy Kindergarten. Each day he gets lots of treats to practice his sits and downs! He is loving that! He also has to learn a new trick, come when called (yeah! right!),  and act like a nice polite boy....Good thing the class lasts for several weeks before we get to the final exam!

The Weekend Report - An Agility Trial at Long Last!

It has been a very long while indeed since my last agility trial...all the way back to October when Jimmy and I earned our PACH2 title. I usually sign up for a lot less trials in the winter, but I was also staying home with Wilson. Fortunately, he's been doing so well, I felt comfortable signing up for a trial and taking him along. This trial was given by the Charlottesville Kennel Club and was held at that farm I love so much. It was still a winter day with chilly temps and a wind, but the sun was shining! And of course Cedar got to come along as well!

I won't spend much time talking about our runs. Jimmy and I are both out of practice and a bit out of shape as well. Jimmy knocked a bar on both of our runs so we did not get any Qs. We did have a lot of fun and that's what really counts. Jimmy got to be the center of attention, something he's been missing since Cedar came along. Plus he got peanut butter! MMMM! That's his post run treat.

I had lots of fun seeing my friends again and showing off Cedar. Most people had seen him on FaceBook, but real life is a lot more fun when it comes to a puppy! Cedar took the agility scene in stride. He enjoyed meeting people and oh, so many dogs of all shapes and sizes. But the best thing that happened for him was a cute little Pembroke Corgi girl who was 10 months old. She wasn't a whole lot bigger than Cedar so they were a good match. They wrestled, they ran, they chased, and just had an all around blast. He definitely couldn't catch her with his still clumsy puppy stride, but he gave it his all. And of course I took photos....Lots of them!

I did *try* to get a picture of all three boys with a mountain background. Wilson wasn't up to walking way back in the hills so I tried near where the cars were parked. It's very hard to get a good shot when you have a puppy with no "stay".....Cedar is in the process of trying to run off with the poop bag holder attached to Wilson's leash. Just about anything is fair game to a pup!

I have a few more trials lined up so stay tuned!

14 Weeks!

Here are a few shots of Cedar from this week. He turned 14 weeks on Monday.....Hard to believe we are in the fifth week of living with this little guy already!

And then we have Cedar under a Cedar!

Juniperus virginiana with Canis virginiana

And finally....Cedar's first time seeing the agility tunnel close up. In the very first five minutes, he was running through it with no effort or thought at all!

Silly Faces and an Awwwww Moment

Silly Cedar faces at 13 weeks!

Early one morning this week, everyone was still quite sleepy. Wilson didn't seem to care that Cedar hopped into the bed with him, and Cedar wasn't his usual ornery self and got stay. You know I ran for my camera!

Have a great weekend, Everyone!
