Beautiful Early Morning!
I was about 2 mins. late to get an even more gorgeous colour in the sky just before sunrise this morning. It was really amazing. Of course, this is a warning for bad weather following. Was supposed to be a lot of freezing rain, but it luckily missed us today.
Behind the house, after the big snowfall, the forest is very pretty. I like the unusual tree limbs with the snow on them.
Going down the driveway, some loaded with snow trees. Hard to believe that tomorrow is going to be heavy rain. The snow will be gone from the trees and everything on the ground will be slush...yuck!
We train/compete in various dog sports, but Tracking has been my main interest since 1994. Five of my dogs have earned TDX titles,Trust has now earned her UTDX which gives her the title of a Canadian Tracking Champion!!! And Now!! Blast has just earned his Tracking Champion title after passing his UTDX Oct.21/12 at just 3 years of age! Blast earned his UTD, TDX and UTDX all in 2012, quite a feat! Tank is working towards the elusive UTDX in 2013. One of the most special is still our little rescued sheltie earning a TD at nearly fifteen years old! I offer tracking classes each spring and am very proud of my students who have earned titles. I've also done tracking seminars on occasion, usually aimed at beginners. I am a CKC Tracking Rep. for Northern Ont. as well as a CKC Canine Good Neighbour Evaluator.
We have been visiting a local nursing home weekly, when possible, for over six years, but presently have taken a reprieve from this.
Time spent with the dogs walking/running on our property is probably our most enjoyable activity. I also offer private in-home training to assist pet owners and their dogs/puppies.
