Oh dear, Oh no, Stewie has a boo boo toe!

Stewie managed to almost totally rip off one of his rear toenails last night out in the snow. He went to the vet this afternoon, and the vet took the rest of it off. I should "try" to keep him quiet for a couple of days. We will have to miss the horse barn this weekend, but the good news is he should be all set for the Feb NADAC trial.

Get on the Ball-moving up to Advanced Program

Stewie is doing really well with Get on the Ball, and we are now starting the Advanced exercises. Now I do see him getting a bit tired after our sessions. We aren't getting out much in this weather so this is great for him.

You can't download the video, but watch it directly from the website, as you can pause, fast forward, rewind, and start and stop the video on your computer.

Great alternative to being able to enjoy and learn from these DVDs at a much higher cost, and you save on shipping too!

Great walk today

Today since it was a balmy 30 degrees or so, we got to take a pretty long walk at the conservation land. After dinner Stewie did his Get on the Ball work and now he is tired out. Hurray!

Club Practice

Stewie and I got to club practice at the SPCA for the first time this year. It was so good to get Stewie out of the house and let him run around and get rid of some energy. We did some agility training and he did great weaves every time I asked him.
