My very first dog

On my search for classic pictures to post on Facebook, I found the only picture I have of Benji, my very first dog. Nowadays I'm sure he'd be called a schnoodle or something fancy depending on his mix, but guess what? That makes him a scruffy mutt - then & now.

I wonder if this is the reason I was drawn to the Giant Schnauzer?

God is faithful

So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall! No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.

1 Corinthians 10:12-13 NIV

Lazy Sunday afternoon

When it's sunny with a solid blue sky and light breeze why not enjoy it? Yard work can wait another day.

The day started bright and early with Bullet doing his first track since his operation - it was excellent. I was thrilled with his slow start, his concentration, his corners, his article indications all the way to the end.

After that I took Glory over to the park for a little training session... since I'm signed up for an agility class starting this Tuesday I should at least get the basics down and see where her attention is. Baseball season has started and she wasn't distracted by the balls flying around or the crowds of people so I feel pretty confident about agility.

Later that afternoon after church I took Bullet for a walk by the river. He was very happy to be out again, even if it wasn't biking yet :)

Working dog

Bullet's been a lucky dog these past two weeks. He's come into work everyday, today was the first day without him and I miss him lying at my feet!

He likes to fit under my desk. He's so quiet and blends in with the darkness, unless you knew I had a dog with me you'd never see him.

He even got to come to a Brighthouse birthday party for Lee, I won't mention Lee's age on line, that would be rude and I respect my elders :)
