Seems like forever since we posted about Bokeh's class. We had a great class last Thursday. Jenn Crank wasn't able to teach so her mom, Susan, filled in and oh boy was she tough on dadster. BOL. But he needed that. He needs to keep in mind that Bokeh isn't me. He needs to tell Bokeh to JUMP and he needs to MOVE...per Miss Susan's orders. :)

Here is a video of Susan taking over running Bokeh to show dad he can do it.

Here is a video of dad giving is a try

Weimaraner Wednesday

Weim and Cheese is getting closer and closer. Mom can't wait to go. More donations have been rolling in. This week we received donations from:

BRILLANT K9 donated a Julius K9 Harness (like the ones me and Bokeh wear), 2 custom labels and a car seat adapter. They were so nice about it to, whomever wins can change colors of the harness if they want to. They also set up a code in case anyone would want to order their very own harness. You can save 10% off your order AND 5% of your order total will be donated back to Louisville Weimaraner Rescue. How cool is that? Just use code "WEIMRESCUE" at checkout.


We received a box of toys and treats from KONG.


One of our favorite stores ever donated not one but TWO totes. Each one has about $20 worth of toys and treats in it.


We also received a nice donation from our friends over at Zuke's.


Our friend, Molly Parker does screen printing on napkins and donated some Weimaraner napkins, how cute are these?


and thanks to all our friends for saving up Coke reward codes and mailing them to us we were able to cash in for a 32 G I-Pod touch.


Here is a picture of my sister Starr watching the cat next door

Sad News

When we were in Missouri at Purina Farms we read the news that our real life fur pal, Granger, had to be rushed into emergency surgery. A few hours later we read the horrible words "HE'S GONE". We are very sad to no longer be able to play with our pal. He was the cutest Cardigan Welsh Corgi around. He was only 4 years old (that is my age!). Mom and dad read the news on the way back to the hotel and both started to cry. Our hearts are breaking for our friend Lynn (Granger's mom). Granger was her world and she is just heart broken. :(

I always liked to play with Granger


This is from his birthday pawty. Starr is in the pic too!


Even my brother Bokeh liked him and he doesn't like many dogs, BOL


This was a fun day at the dog park we had with him. He kept jumping over the walk area, we called him SUPER GRANGER!


Granger was also very good at agility and earned many ribbons.


Granger has lots of friends and we will all miss him very much


Rest in Peace our friend Granger. Gone too soon, but never forgotten.

Happy Memorial Day

Wow, we had a great day at the park today. We finished up a photo shoot for our friend Holly (she is a cute little Sheltie). After dad was done with the photo shoot we got to go play some Frisbee and go for a swim. We want to thank all of the people and pups in the military who make doing these great things possible. Especially to mom's nephew Nathaniel. Happy Memorial day!

Frankie and Ernie day

When we read about this day we just knew we had to be a part of it. Frankie and Ernie are two of the coolest dudes around and we are so happy that we have had the chance to meet them in the furs. Thank you Ernie and Frankie for all that you do to help make Blogville such a great place!

New collar and leash

Remember the company I told you about that donate so many collars and leashes to mom's rescue? Well, mom found them because she purchased a collar and leash for me and a collar for Bokeh.

Mine says LOVE on it


Bokeh's is hard to see because of all his long white furs...but it says "Born To Raise Hell"...yep that one fits him. BOL


Anyhoo, they are a great company. You should check them out HERE

Weimaraner Wednesday

More donations are rolling in for Louisville Weimaraner Rescue's 5th Annual Weim and Cheese event.

Mom bought Bokeh and I a new collar and leash made by this company called Buckle Down. They are really cool, the clasp part is actually like a seatbelt buckle. Well, anyhoo....they had a contact on their tags so mom thought she would ask them if they would donate and guess what...they sent a HUGE donation. They sent us 14 collars and 8 leashes.


The leashes, don't you just love the "I LOVE BACON" one? BOL


We also received a really nice donation from Furminator. They donated a medium and large Furminator and 2 bottles of the solution.


Also, don't forget about my contest. If you post about the 5th Annual Weim and Cheese on your blog and get us a donation we will enter you for a prize or a donation to a rescue of your choice. Please spread the word. More details can be found HERE

Last part of the Missouri Trip

So we planned to leave bright and early Saturday morning and everyone talked us into staying a little later so we could show Bokeh in the conformation ring. Bokeh is fixed so we entered him in the Altered division.

Everyone getting their Aussies all pretty


The ribbons ready to be handed out


Our friend Rachel jumped at the chance to show Bokeh for us since we have no clue what we are doing.


She did a great job, thanks Rachel!


My brother looks like a real show dog, can you believe it?


Getting examined real good by the judge


Up close and personal


Video of Bokeh in the ring and getting his ribbons and plaque

Bokeh won Best of Breed Altered division. We are so proud of him.

Missouri Trip Part 6

On Friday it was Obedience, Rally and Acrobatics day. Bokeh entered the Rally competition so he could compete in the Extreme Aussie Games (EAG). EAG is a game from the events where you have to get 3 Q's in performance events and then whoever has the best scores is the winner. So Bokeh got a Q in Agility, Disc Dog and only needed Rally to be in the running for EAG.

Bokeh never even practiced rally EVER! So here is his Rally debut:

Out of 210 possible points, Bokeh got 205. Not bad for his first time and all the point reductions were for dad having a tight leash. Bad dadster! So Bokeh got a Q in Rally and his first leg towards a Rally Title.

After all these events we went to the motel. Needless to say, I was not a happy camper and was ready go home. Mom's friends said I look all husky in this photo. BOL


Bokeh tried to comfort me, but I just wanted to go home.


We also met some other fellow Wigglebutts from the same breeder as Bokeh.

This is Danny:


and Danny's son, Jack. Jack was a big boy like Bokeh


After Obedience and Rally they did acrobatics. This is kind of like Bokeh does in Freestyle Disc but without a frisbee and dogs have to dress up.

This is Wya




and Cooper

Missouri Trip Part 5

The next performance event of the day was the Dock Diving. Neither Bokeh or I did the dock diving, we like to swim but not dive off the dock so we watched the others do this one. One of the aussies kept diving in head first, it was funny.

We also ran into one of dad's disc dog friends Tracy Custer. She is a professional disc dogger and she actually works at Purina Farms. She was there practicing Dock Diving with one of her dogs.

Missouri Trip Part 4

The second event of the performance day was Disc Dog events. First up they had Toss and Fetch. In Toss and Fetch you have one minute to get as many points as possible. You get points by how far you throw it, if you are in the bonus circle and 1/2 point if you catch it with your feet in the air. Here is Bokeh's first round of Toss and Fetch

This is his second round of Toss and Fetch

Bokeh got 2nd place in Toss and Fetch.

Up next was Freestyle. Here was Bokeh's routine.

He got 1st place in Freestyle. Go Bokeh!

Up next was Distance and Accuracy. This is where you have 3 minutes. The person/dog team with the longest catch wins. Bokeh got 2nd place and only missed 1st place by just 8 inches. Bokeh's catch was over 40 yards.

He did awesome in the disc dog competitions and we are very proud of him.

Missouri Trip Part 3

So Thursday at Mini Nationals was "performance" day. We had Agility, Disc Dog and Dock Diving all going on the same day. First up was Agility. This is Bokeh's very first debut in agility competition. He did really good and got 1st place in the 20" division. This was his first run. Wasn't the best because he had to POOP! haha...Silly boy always has to poop.

This was Bokeh's second run, much better now that he pooped! BOL

His third run of the day was in Tunnelers. He got first place 20" for this.

Dad let me play agility to even though I wasn't an Aussie. But we didn't take any prizes since I compete already in agility and most of the people doing it never done it before.

Here is my second run

One last thing I wanted to share with you. This was Drew and his first time doing agility. He didn't want to go in the tunnel and decided to walk on top of it instead.

Missouri Trip Part 2

So last Wednesday morning mom had tears in her eyes and told Starr and Harley we would see them on Saturday night. Starr and Harley were in good hands, Grandma Margie and her friend stayed at our house to watch them. We packed up the car and off we went. After a few hours we were leaving the great state of Ohio.


and was in Indiana (we forgot to get a Welcome to Indiana photo). We stopped of at Indianapolis and dropped off all the Weim and Cheese donations we have received to one of the adoption coordinators for mom's rescue. Back in the car we went and we saw this sign as we left Indiana.


After a few more hours an another potty break we saw this sign


and then we drove through downtown and saw the Arch. How beautiful! Mom wanted to try to go see it up close but we didn't have directions on how to get to it, so maybe we will do that next time.


After about 8 hours in the car we finally reached the beautiful event center at Purina Farms

They sure do have a beautiful place for the farm and event center. So green and hilly in Missouri.

Our Trip to Missouri

Wow, I have so much to tell you about. I don't know if you remember but dad got hired as the action photographer of the 2012 Mini Australian Shepherd nationals. This was held in Missouri. So we packed up this last week and went several states away to attend Mini nationals. First dad took crybaby Bokeh to get a bath and a grooming by our friend Kim who has her own grooming van that is super nice. She gave Bokeh a nice bath, brush and trimming so he would look like a real Aussie again. Here he is crying getting wet

And here he is getting blow dried. He thinks if he gives Kim enough kisses she might stop. BOL

Well, now that we have Bokeh all pretty we can get ready to head out.

Bokeh needs some help in the agility field. So dad took him back to IncrediPaws. Need to work on his jumping confidence and his weave poles. Class started by working on start line stays. They had them go to one of there favorite obstacles and work on their stay. Bokeh did pretty good at this. After that they worked on some of their two on two offs. Here is a little video clip of Bokeh coming all the way off the A Frame and then sitting. Not sure why he started this all of a sudden but we have worked to get him back to two on two off.

Bokeh worked on his weave poles

and some Teeter work

Hopefully things will click soon for Bokeh and he will learn agility is as fun as frisbee.

Mutts and Co

Remember a long time ago Bokeh and I were selected to be 2 of Mutts and Co's models? Well, they sent us a thank you email with a link to some of the photos that were taken with an option to purchase them. Mutts and Co also told us as a thank you they had a $40 gift card waiting for us at the store. We went to pick it up the other day. It had one of the other pups photos on the gift card, how cool is that? Mutts and Co is remodeling and we can't wait to see if Bokeh or I made the shots that they are going to use in their store. Here we are holding the gift card.


Saturday, May 12, 2012

I won!

Remember when Trupanion had this contest? Well we participated and was one of the five chosen to win a gift card to either Petco or Amazon. We chose Amazon this time. Thank you Trupanion for keeping things fun and making sure Bokeh and I are covered if we ever get sick.

New Harnesses

Our cousin Hershey wanted to have a cool harness like we have. His mom picked out a green one for him. What do you think?


and those of you that know my mom know her favorite color is purple. As soon as she heard Julius K9 had a purple one out she had to get one for me. Photobucket

The three of us modeling our harnesses. Don't you think Julius K9 should hire us as their models?

Weimaraner Wednesday

We are still receiving more donations and so happy about that for our 5th Annual Weim and Cheese event. This time we received a beautiful leather collar from our friend Maggie's mom, Dianne.


One of mom's friends on Facebook has Weims and donated these cool items. She made a beautiful Weimaraner pillow.


A bottle of Weimaraner Wine


and a little bag of other goodies


Kuranda Dog Beds also donated a large burgundy dog bed to us as well. This needs assembled so we don't have a photo but you can go to their website and check them out. (My husky friends will love the dog on the home page). :) Also, don't forget about our contest. If you share about Weim and Cheese on your blog and get us a donation for the event we will enter you to win either a prize or a donation to a rescue of your choice. More details HERE.

As you read this we are driving to Missouri for Mini Aussie Nationals. Can't wait to tell you all about it when we get back home! Mom is sad because Starr and Harley had to stay home with Grandma. She is going to be watching them until we return.
