I created This ‘N That Thursday for times when you want to post about unrelated topics or each topic isn’t quite long enough to make up a whole post. It can be anything you want, so feel free to grab the button and join us!
This weekend we have both Thunder and Freighter entered in hunt tests. Thunder is in a Masters test which starts on Friday. Freighter is in two Junior tests which run Saturday and Sunday. After the test on Sunday Freighter is coming home!
When Freighter comes home we will be working a lot on his obedience and heeling. All he has to do is hear a duck call and the guns and he forgets all that he knows. He gets a bit crazy in the holding blind so we will need to practice sitting nicely. At Sunday’s test he went to the starting line mostly on four legs, but he was trying for two which is not what you want.
He is still a puppy and thinks that he should try to visit all of the other dogs that he sees at the hunt test. No puppy that will get you into trouble. At the test on Sunday the dogs had to walk down a long strip of land to get to the place they were running the test. This meant they had to pass by dogs coming and going. Freighter did a decent job passing the other dogs. Not too much visiting.
Hunting season will be opening soon and my husband is itching to start to show Freighter the ropes. Unfortunately Storm will miss hunting season this year. This picture of Storm was taken yesterday morning.
They have finished the construction on our street, but not in the neighborhood. Yesterday they were breaking up concrete and was it loud. The brown dawgs will be happy when they finish.
I will be tied up the next few days so I will wish you a good weekend today!
