Lovely Weekend

I can’t believe the weather we are having. No rain yet. Still sunny and 60-ish.


  I’ll take it.
Went strolling at the Palo Alto Baylands on Saturday. I love that place. There are so many places like that here. Those sort of spots that make you feel like you are not smack in the middle of urban sprawl. You can have some peace and some outdoorsy and little wildlife…and still…never more than 5 minutes from Starbucks. :)

Most of the birds were busy, busy, busy

Bella was completely fascinated by the noise they were making. Surprisingly loud. All that mud slurping and pat pat pat of duck feets in the mud. DSC_0684

The dogs don’t care much for birding
Too much stopping. Too much...”would you just stand still and stop jerking on my arm?!”

There is some entertainment for them, too, though.

The source of much of the pulling.

Their camo is quite impressive. The dogs wouldn’t even know they were there is it wasn’t for the constant alarm calls. They should probably re-think all that screaming. DSC_0724

Kate’s opinion on birding is pretty clear.

We had some dog time, too. Working on Brace Agility DSC_0870

Of course we would practice skills for something that doesn’t exist DSC_0873

We did do a little of the norm, too. Bella prefers 3o1o. Always a titch defiant, that one. DSC_0852a

Kate? Not so big on being a Bad Dog

Would much rather this..

Or this, though…

Although, she kinda sucks at that, too. DSC_0819

  3. Bahaha, I love that you made them both do two on two off at the same time.

  4. Great dogs! I wanna have Rottweiler soon. Thanks for sharing

  5. 3on 1off. I can't tell you how many times I've stood at the end of the dog walk with the clock ticking, and saying... "No, I still need one more foot! ... Where is your other foot??? "
    I think they do it just to determine the full limits of the rule- or maybe it is BC humor. : )

  6. Great photos! I think we have the opposite type of blog! ( Any time you take a "bad" photo, please consider sending it my way:
