-----WOW! I can't
believe it's been almost a month since I have written anything for here!
Time flies in the spring time! So much has been going on. We got our full
set of agility equipment and training has been going great! Tess and Rhett
are entered in our first AKC trial the end of April! Wish me luck!
----- We have
had several litters of pups born, Zena is our Bi-Colored female and she
had her first litter on March 31 with Uzi! Zena is a really neat dog -
so much intensity and drive to work she is really fun to train. She is
of course trained in tracking, obedience and protection but she is my mom's
main trick dog, she does the usual stuff sit up, roll over, crawl, etc.
BUT she is also a musician and plays the drums! guitar, keyboard and is
learning to sing and play the guitar together!! I am actually being serious
- she has a little "wrist band" that velcros to her paw and my
mom sticks a drumstick in there and Zena actually hits the stick on the
drums! Though her trick training had to go on hold while she was pregnant
and now with her pups she is very intelligent.
her own toy box that is in a bone shape. She figured out on her own how
to take the lid off pull all the toys out to get to her favorite toy -
the monkey with rope arms. She would pull them out and leave them all over
the floor so my mom decided she could learn to put them away and made her
get every toy and put it back in.....pretty quick Zena decided that was
to much work and carefully rooted around in the box until she found her
monkey - then pulled him out - leaving the rest of the toys!!
her when she was just a pup - her sire is Bastin - one of the top working
dogs in the world who is often on the cover of Schutzhund USA and her mom
is by another top working dog. The people we bought her from were going
to the Schutzhund Nationals and so they said they could either ship her
to us when she was 6 weeks old or else we would have to wait till they
got back and she was 10 weeks old. We said put her on the plane. Even though
she was just 6 weeks she came bounding - literally bounding out of the
pet taxi and I don't think she has slowed down since! She has so much charisma
and energy and joy for life that she is fun to be around.
take her when I go for long drives (horse shows, moving horses, etc.) and
she will lay in the back seat pretty well unless their is food out. I made
the mistake when she was younger of giving her bits of what I was eating...now
she thinks that she gets something all the time! and just sits there and
whines if I don't give her a bite. I haven't found anything she won't eat
- lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, she loves donuts, bagels with cream cheese
and of course hamburgers and french fries!
she is also a great mother of 6 puppies. Now that she has babies she is
very calm - walks very carefully and is taking to mom duties very well.
We are really excited about this litter and are going to keep 2 of the
females and I am going to keep a male as well. Even though Zena is Bi-Colored
- I think all the pups are black and reds like Uzi except 1 male might
be bi-colored like Zena.
should bring this to a close because I have to go plow snow. We didn't
have much snow this winter - only 1 or 2 storms but we have been getting
dumped on this spring! Several weeks ago we had 3 feet of snow in 2 days
- I had to plow the road 3 times in one day. That all melted off ! But
we just got another foot last night and it's still coming down
spring time in Montana - such fun!
