I've had a baby...

Firstly, I have to mention my lack of updates again. Alas, the will is strong, but the time is lacking of late. My hope is that now the winter months are with us, I will have more time for tricks, photos, and stories of Ellie and our boarding guests.

However, let me tell you about my guest this weekend, Baby. She's a twelve-week old Chiweenie (Chihuahua and Dachshund cross). Naturally, I had to grab my camera.

Everything was right about this boarding. The owners were just some of the nicest, most down to earth, and friendly people I've ever met, and clearly genuine dog-lovers. I haven't met people as nice as these since I first met Max and Becky. The dogs, of course, always make boarding a reward, but when you gel with the owners too, that just makes it all the more pleasant for everyone.

Their dog, Baby, well, gorgeous isn't the word. I just adored every second of boarding her, even when she decided to cling to the bottom of my trouser leg as I walked around. Utterly, utterly gorgeous, and she looked even more so being carried around the field in my jacket.

Ellie, well, she's doing just fine. She continues to get better and better with the parade of dogs that come through our home. She's still a naturally jealous creature of course, but that's to be expected as she is used to having me to herself for much of the time. There are no new tricks to report but I can feel the urge to teach new ones biting at my backside.

Not even a single picture of Ellie! I'm upset! ;)

That puppy is adorable! You can't show pictures of cute puppies. I'm fighting off the "I want another puppy really, really, really bad" bug again. :)

I recently got back into training again too, so I think it must be something in the air lol. I can't wait to see what you come up with next.
