Utility and Sunshine

I am not sure I can accurately describe Rugby's new attitude lately. It seems after our trials the other weekend, he has been unusually happy and attentive. He was happy before, but this is a different kind of happy. I can think of only one reason for this - he must know he is amazing!

We have been working on our Utility exercises much more seriously since then. I forgot how much more energy it takes to LEARN new things. Now that we are introducing new exercises Rugby demands a nice long afternoon nap to recharge after working.

And just because he is cute....

Lots of studying going on the past couple days, but we will get caught back up soon!


  1. you are amazing, pal. We love ya :)

  10. So glad you are having fun learning new things, Rugby! We LOVE to learn new things! GrandPaw Robert has made us all kinds of things to play on and learn about since we were very little puppies! You should see our Obstacle Course that we have in the backyard to play on! He keeps adding new things all the time! New things to learn, lots of fun and exercise, and we are all happy dogs, Right?
