Hercules (22 Days...)

Kind of a stretch, but today is a red doberman on the green sofa. :p I picked this one because they both look a little goofy.
Just so I don't pick the wrong picture again (:p) Here are the other ones we got.

Rugby apparently hasn't really let go of his high jump problem. It has been sooo long since has done this I was a little dissapointed to see him start it up again. When it started to re-appear yesterday and in my attempt to cut it off before it got worse, Rugby threw a fit. His problem is he pauses before he comes back to me. He goes out, gets the dumbbell and looks around for only a few seconds (but a few seconds too long) and THEN comes back. Unfortunetely for Rugby he got his micro-prong collar put on him and put back on his 15ft lunge line. Rugby exchanged some words with me for this, but by then end was coming back very promptly.

It would have been nice if that was the end, however when we went to class last night his wretched problem had overflowed into his retrieve on the flat. Sooo, he got his collar and line on him again. This time he had less to say about. I hope that really is the end...the prong collar is hard to put on! LOL Now I am glad we don't have any shows coming up!

Before class, we had a reallly good time with Sanity, Jasmine and Pete and our mini photo-shoot yesterday. We took everyones dumbbell and took turns having the dogs retrieve them all. Rugby even had his turn with Sanity's dumbbell (He is so strong! :p)

Since this is Rugby's blog, here are the ones he is in. You can see the rest on flickr. There are some really cute ones of the dobes on there!!


  1. Wow! I love the last picture of them together on the couch! You have some good looking pups!

  2. Thanks! I think that is my fav. too. Only Rugby is mine. The Dobe on the couch belongs to my trainer and the other dobe is a day care dog.
