New roommates rock!

February 26, 2009

I have a new roommate, who has two dogs of her own, mini schnauzers Kiba and Stryder.  Lizzie is THRILLED to have playmates her own size, even if Kiba is not really in favor of this whole ‘playing with non-schnauzers’ thing.

Mere (the roommate) is an agility person (yay!) and will be teaching the pre-agility classes that we hope to offer at Dogstar Academy in the future. 🙂 Her guys are both titled in CPE and it’s a lot of fun to see them work.

In other news, we started watching Susan Garett’s 2×2 Weaves DVD and I’ve done Day 1 with Lizzie, and she’s really got it down, with an 88% success rate in the first session! More notes on her progress soon. 🙂

A fundraiser for our friends…

Lizzie’s Australian relatives aren’t from Victoria, but everyone’s heard about the brushfires that have so far destroyed over a thousand homes and killed more than 100 people.
Check out the Virtual Dog Show to raise funds to help Victorian dog folks affected by the fires get back on their feet.
