Newest Family Member

We will be welcoming a new Sheltie to our family in October.  This is another RyLadd Sheltie from Mary Galloway.  She will be the first female Sheltie for me; I've had four boys.  Right now her name is G2.  I'll wait to see if I want to change it, but so far I really like that name.  She looks just like her grandmother, Gossip.  So, it's Gossip #2, G2 for short.  Here are some pics:

G2 and her littermates at 8 weeks. Nothing cuter than pups at rest!

Swimming

I finally remembered to take my phone along when Cosi goes swimming. I got pictures and a short video. Here goes:

After an agility practice, Cosi is hot and ready for his swimming. Here he is at the top of the ramp, waiting to go into the water.
Down the ramp...
and he's swimming! Here's the video:

September Trials

Just got back from Frederick, Maryland. We were at a two-day trial. Great courses, fun jumpers runs. We Q'd in standard on Saturday and missed JWW by one knocked bar. We ran in the Time To Beat (T2B) courses both days. I like doing more than just the two runs a day.

It was a RyLadd reunion at the trial this weekend. There were RyLadd Shelties everywhere! I enjoyed seeing all the various sizes from little 8" Jordan (who got her MACH 2 on Sunday!!) to 16" Cosi and Hoax. Gossip was rockin' the 12" class. Fun times seeing everyone there.

Groundhog Day

This Labor Day weekend was more like the movie Groundhog Day, a repeat of last year's Labor Day weekend. Remember, Anna, bailing water from the flooded basement? Well, another hurricane--this time Isaac instead of Irene--dumped rain for the past two days. We haven't had to bail the basement this time, but the rain and pounding storms reminded me of last year at this time.
