Our trip to Eugene to see Garrett...

was a great one. Garrett got to see Minnie in person for the first time since I picked her up on Feb 2. While there I also got to meet Emily from DreamEyce and she took some great photos of Minnie and Gabbi. Here are those photos.....

Garrett and Minnie

Minnie also made a new friend, Emily's daughter, Dea.

She also snapped these picture of our dear old lady, Gabbi. Sometimes it's hard to believe she'll be 13 this October.

I did plan on entering Minnie in a fun show on Sunday, but it got cancelled. So next on the agenda is our final obedience class on Thursday.

I found some pictures....

so I now have two blog postings in one day. :) I got the following pictures off my sister's myspace page. She took them when she went down to the ranch in the end of April.

Minnie laying under a table outside.
Minnie and Kylah playing.

After all that playing, they needed a nap!

And I'm back...

Made it back safely from training for work. While I was gone, Glenn and Minnie got to "play" with ducks for the first time. I hear she has great instinct when it comes to herding. The duck's owner, who competes in herding, even commented on her instinct. Unfortunately no pics where taken. :( On the upside Minne has been invited back so I'll be sure there are pictures next time.

Minnie I have a big week or so coming up. I'm going to do a drop in class on Wed and take a crash course in conformation. Then on Friday we are taking a day road trip to Eugene to see Garrett (her breeder) who will be there for a sheepy show/seminar. On Sunday we are doing our first dog show. I'm calling it a fun show since its our first and not sanctioned as far as I can tell. It's put on by a local Bulldog Club and has an All Breed Conformation Match and Sub/Novice Obedience/Rally Match. We are going to do 6-9 month conformation (hence us taking a crash course in conformation) and I figure we'll also do Obedience and Rally for the heck of it. I don't expect to place but I figure it'll be a good experience for her. I have recruited Robert, my fiancee, to play photographer, so I will have pictures to post.

That's all for now...
