Fall colors, certificates and green feet


Fall is here.  Trust me.  This is our backyard.

All fall-like.

Which means.... fall bitey-face!



We just wanted you to know that we haven't given up bite-facing.   We're still working on our weave poles and our hurdles, but sometimes we've just got to cut loose and bitey each other!

Mom still has to work on her technique, and we're not exactly Brutus and Carmen, but hey, we've graduated to four poles!

In other excitement, we went to the park this morning, and the grass had Just Been Cut.  (As in, the gardener was still cutting the far end of the field while we were there.)  No pictures of our park action, but Mom was greatly amused with our green feet.

Green feet?  Really?  You think that's funny?!?
Apparently Mom thought the green feet were really funny, as she too lots of pictures of our feet, especially Abby's since her coloring makes her leprechaun-like feet more obvious.  


And finally, our Canine Good Citizen certificates arrived!  And as our Grandpa keeps pointing out, the certificate is the Most Important Thing!   Heehee!


Now we're both certified.  Or certifiable, or something...

Frankly, my sister STILL looks certifiable, in my humble opinion...

Humans put letters after their name when they get advanced degrees - MD, PhD, DVM.
So now, you get to do just like them and put letters after your names.
Fiona, CGC
Abby the Hoppobottomus, CGC
You're just as smart as your VET!

Hey! There was a doodle dog at Pea's daycare today. It hung out with that golden retriever gang of thugs and left the black lab pack alone.

Mazel tov on the certificates, which we are sure will be suitably framed and hung in a place of honor. And mazel tov on the accomplishment! But what is this 'owner' nonsense? If anything, it should say Owner: Fiona/Abby and Person: mom. We have trained mama to change 'owner' to 'companion/guardian' on all those forms that pretend we are property.

Nice feets. We are tracking in lots of mud right now. And contemplating building an ark, if we could just figure out how to use a hammer.

We thought with those fall colors, you were going to say snow was right around the corner. Tell the humans that. We are sure they will be excited.

Dory and the Mama said...

We soooo hope your Mama framed those certificate thingys...they ARE the most important thing (or that's what Mama says)!

We think you guys take bitey face to an extreme level!!!

I'm finally here! My human is helping me do this comment using her new software that types for her as she speaks, so she can rest her arms from her RSI – it's not bad,huh? But it does still make mistakes and my human has to keep stopping to correct it so it's a bit annoying and very slow – it takes us double the time to do the same thing! So please excuse any funny words or spellings in my comment!

Congratulations on your CGC certificates! What great achievements! And it looks like you're doing really well with those weave poles too. But my gosh – I couldn't believe how green your paws were! Seriously, if you didn't tell me it was from the grass I wouldn't have believed it – I would have thought your human took you to one of those salons where they dye doggy hair a funny colour – Hee! Hee!
