With all the holiday stuff going on right now I thought I should just do a Follow up Friday post this week so I know what has been happening and in case you missed anything you can catch up too. Thanks to Heart Like A Dog for hosting this Blog Hop.
Monday was Bailie’s second week at Obedience training. Sorry to report that both Mom and Bailie are not liking the class and it sounds like the class doesn’t like them either. The first week Bailie was so wild she had to don a Gentle Leader which only made her more nuts! Week two was about 50% better as she didn’t get wild until the second half and but this time Mom said no Gentle Leader. At this point I think a lot of people would just quit, but like a GBGV, Mom is stubborn, so she and Bailie are going to really hunker down and work on things and by graduation Bailie will surprise the others by showing she is the smartest dog in the class. I did really well in school which is unusual for my breed. Bailie has it in her, she just has to use it! Bailie is also one of the youngest in her class, so her attention span isn’t as long as other dogs and even Mom says she gets bored with all the repetition. I have total confidence that Mom and Bailie will get it together and she will graduate with the title of most improved pup.
Tuesday I visited Dr. Jim at the IGH Animal Hospital to have my lips checked again. The photo is me in the exam room waiting. He said my lipfolds are looking great! Mom is really happy with the progress as well and I am even letting her comb my beard (which is getting quite long now) a bit these days. I didn’t let her near there before because there was always in infection and it was sore. We are both so glad we decided to do the surgery.
We dogs have been spending a lot of time in the snow in the yard racing around lately. Bailie and I have so much fun together! She seems to think my ears are really handles for her to bite into and hang on, but that’s okay. I did the same to Katie’s tail when I was a puppy.
Katie has been having some pain in her front leg, so she isn’t running around as much but she does enjoy overseeing us in our games. This photo is our “T” formation. I’m whispering our next moves to Bailie! I think we were planning an attack on Katie.

Yesterday I interviewed my mom and had two photos of her on my post which is against my posting rules but I made an exception! I don’t know if she will ever let me post photos or interview her again, so make sure you see and read about her while you can.
One other piece of news – Mom just signed Bailie and I up for Nosework 1 starting January 9th. We are so excited to start using our noses for what they were made for. Stay tuned to hear how it goes!
