I´m angry with the app on my iphone, it doesn´t agree with this site at the moment and makes Blogging difficult. But though little have been written a lot more have been done.
6th Iza was well, I´ll just try to forget what she did today when she found the game and went of like a canonball. Becca did really nice and actually remembered that Martin was in the field with her. She can be a bit obesessed with game sometimes.
7th Iza did a really good work tracing two of the leaping partridge in the bushes, finding, and getting them in the air and then stopping. Becca had lost her nose and just used eyes and ears today... But she might have heard that her favourite human Miguel was coming to visit and was in a hurry to get home?
8th Hagel is really maturing fast now. A few weeks ago a double retrieve was quite enough, then all of a sudden she could do four doubles and today she did 15 different ones, both blind, marks and lines. But her corner teeth is lacking so everything has to be fuzzy to be carried home.
9th Retrieving and obedience was on the schedule for today, but as it was poring down, my body was a mess and my head had trouble with me standing up, it ended up in very, very short sessions indoors. Martin will have three more or less explosive dog to walk tonight.
10th Rabies vaccination and passport for Hagel was on the agenda, and kick biking for the first time since Iza injured her paw. No limping or soreness there anymore. Phu!
11th Ebba arrived! Lovely to see how mature she has become and how much she has thrived in the care of Marie-Louise. She is doing Rally lydnad with ML and that shows in all her movements, her hind control is getting much better! I had her on the table and found that her whole back coat could be stripped of! Though I´ve had both english and american cockers before, none has had this coat, well Cleavehill Icelander had but he doesn´t count, he was extraordinary! So now she is dark red on her back and totally smooth.
Then we took Iza and Becca for some field work. Becca decided to forget her brain at home, she was just as whimsical that morning when we worked on obedience. Iza did a great work even though she flushed a bird, when she came in the wrong wind, but she stopped all on her own accord! Then Becca had a second chance and all of a sudden she got her memories back ;)
12th First a quick obedience picking up thing work, then a longer obedience one and finally out doors work in the woods. We are focusing on standing from laying to get the paws more planted especially Becca and Ebba have a tendency to stand a bit uneven.
13th has been a short obedience work with retrieving, as Becca really needed that. And if Becca need a thing the rest probably do as well ;) So we worked with just single command, either a hand, or a signal or a word - to make things clearer. One should probably do this more often, but it seems to be the thing with every project, it has do be done more often...
Well all of us write here, both humans and dogs ;) At least that was the plan but it seems it´s mostly me Robyn who´s attached to the keyboard...
