busy, busy, and busy ...

I seems to constantly chasing time lately! I wish I have enough energy to cope with everything going on at the  moment. The puppies certainly take up all my times. At this age, they all seeking for attention and we have four crazy puppies! You can hear me screaming all the time, I was attack by these "vicious" puppies LOL. Their sharp teeth are deadly! 

All puppies are very friendly, they love people more than anything. Whoever that visit, they will try to "jump" into your lap and then BITE you! Hahaha ... really crazy! Storm and Spirit had made holes in my fleece sleeve already! Oops! Don't tell the puppy owners!

The girls, Rae is mad, she reminded me so much of Brooke, Sonic's sister. They are so similar in so many ways. Isla is very tiny and delicate. She is the weakest of the lots, not that she is not playful but because of her size. The other three just bullied her, poor little Isla. 

I think this litter is particularly "awake". They spend so little time sleeping, they are up most of the time terrorising each other. It's such good fun watching them interacting with each other and also with toys. I wish I have 2 pairs of hand so I can tug with each puppy the same time. When one plays, the other will join in. I ended up become their victim :( I can't tell you how bossy these puppies are!

Due to the freezing cold weather, poor puppies didn't get to go out much as I like. They do have a few days out there for a very short time. They even got to go out and play in the snow on Monday, guess what? I can't get them in afterwards. They love the snow and they ran like crazy. Trying to catch them? You must be joking!

 Rae: I zoom ...

Uncle Matthew and Auntie Rhoda came to visit on the weekend, the puppies had a lovely time with them. Thank you so much for entertaining them, sorry that Spirit and Storm nearly ruin your jumper. Oops!

 Spirit and Isla wanted to be "fortune cookie" puppies!

 the two big ones (Storm and Rae) love their play fight :)

 Between them (Storm and Rae), they help me carried 6 x 400ml tins of coconut milk into the kitchen :)

 Storm: Uncle Matthew, your hair taste good!
Sing: Grand-son, that's very rude, please behave yourself!

 Spirit: Oh, uncle, I love you so!

 Stormy fell asleep on the wobble cushion after a long play session

 Storm: I am a destroyer :) Grand-ma never tells me off but encourage more, so I will be alright. 

 so sweet ... she ain't heavy, she is my mama :)

 Spirit:  I can play ball and cross paw the same time. 
BTW, he is the first one that pick up a tennis ball and play :)

 who is that sensible girl that sleep next to the heater?

 cutest puppy!

And they called it ... puppy love!

It is snowing here again now as I write, maybe the pups get to go out and play snow later? WooHoo! Well, I guess moving up to West Midlands suits me ... more snow! Only one down side though, I can't get to train! I finally have all my "posh" aluminium agility equipment from First Contact arrived and set up and since then,  my agility paddock is cover in snow! I don't remember seeing my fields without snow in the last few weeks :) Maybe it's time to push on for an Indoor School :) (Colin, are you reading my blog?) We didn't even get to go to Club training as the field is bad too :(

When we have the big wash out after the heavy snow a couple of weeks ago, Sing got an infection on one of his back legs, oops! Poor old boy. It was really bad. He had anti-biotic but I don't think that actually helps. The infection gone down a bit but it flares up again. Today, it got better, I just don't know what to do. Poor old Sing still loves his walk, frisbee, ball ... anything really. He really is that kind of dog that works till he drops. Everytime I saw him limping along, my heart hurt so much! He is one tough dog!

 my golden old man :)

Sonic learning to herd in the snow

At the moment, chicken are laying eggs like crazy! Last week, 6 of the chicken are laying an egg a day and this week, we gone to 8 eggs a day, I guess everyone is laying eggs :) maybe it's about time to get baking again BUT, I've only just given up on cakes! Oh, I guess diet never works out in this house :)

Agility wise, Sonic is still very crazy and unreliable but we did some good work together which is very pleasing. It's always fun to train him, he has tons of energy and he works enthusiastically all the way ... and when he finished, he just crashed out :) just like his daddy Sing :D

We have been to our local Bitz N Bobz show last Saturday. We had 4 runs as usual. He has a very shaky start in the morning. No videos as daddy was puppy sitting. In the Agility 1 run, I tried to do a blind cross in the tunnel and he missed the jump because he came to my leg, I should have watch him but I trust him. More work on that. In the Jumping 1 run, we got a refusal :( Then, in the afternoon, he did a cracking round in the Agility 2 and won that by 9 seconds! Oops! We managed to put in a ketschker turns (WooHoo!) and I did an extreme rear across in the 6 weave. I was feeling very positive and high after that run, I knew we both did very well. Sadly, in the Jumping 2, I being a fool and forgot where we were going :(

I'm so jealous that the pups and dogs have such a brilliant farm to play on!
The pups really do have great personalities! And it's great that they're people friendly, like me!
