Happy Mother’s Day Weekend, my friends. I thought it would be nice for us each to take a selfie with Mom for my post. Of course, my sisters are not real good at selfies, and neither is my mom. If you look at the photos, the only real decent one is of me! Oh well, I can only do so much!
Bailie, Mom, and I are super pumped up for this weekend! We get to spend the weekend at nose work trials which is one of our very favorite things to do! My mom loves nose work as much as we do, and getting to spend one whole day with each of us is the perfect way to spend Mother’s Day Weekend. Katie will be sleeping most of the time as she does every day, but she will have Mom time on her walks in the mornings and evenings.
If you are worried about my Gramma being left out, don’t. She will be spending the day with my mom’s brother, and we celebrated with her last weekend. Mom and I visited Gramma, brought her a present, hung out, and surprised her with some yummy cupcakes…even one for me, the dog!
Saturday will be Bailie’s NW1 Trial, and her day to spend all day alone with Mom doing nose work. Mom is going into the weekend confident and Bailie has promised to apply herself. She needs to get that title this time around! The two of them are finally working pretty well as a team and they seem to be working out a good system. The photo is from a trial a year ago.
I get to spend actual Mother’s Day, Sunday, with Mom at my NW3 Trial. This trial will be very hard, the pass rate is almost always from zero to twenty percent, but Mom says the title is ours to get or to lose. We know I can do it, so if I can keep Mom’s nerves at bay, we can do it. We are both going in with a positive winning attitude. The right attitude is half the battle. No matter what it will be a fun adventure for us together. Mom has also learned to trust me, so there won’t be anymore questionable faces from her, like the one above, when she calls alert. The photo is also from a trial a year ago.
No matter how our trials end, titles or no titles, we know we are going to have so much fun, have great experiences, and best of all spend the days together with Mom and our other nose work friends. If you want to check on us, we will most likely be posting here and there on my Facebook page and my Instagram account. Happy Mother’s Day Weekend to all the moms out there, and especially to my mom! Thanks to Caprise Adams for the last three photos!

I’m sure you and Bailie will both get your titles this weekend, Emma! You’ve both been working hard with your Mom to come this far. I wish your Mom a Happy Mothers’ Day weekend, too! Sending you all hugs and kisses from all of us!
Thank you. We are all so excited to get the weekend rolling and start sniffing!
Holy cow I forgot that was this weekend. And I love all these photos, so awesome.
Now you can call yourself reminded 😉 I’m working on Mom letting me post more photos of herself with us girls, but it isn’t easy!

It will not be an easy weekend, but it will be full of fun challenges and teamwork!

Awwwww, Emma, the pictures with your mom are so sweet. There’s a lot of mutual love there. Wishing you a fun and successful weekend.
We are a pretty tight family 😉 Hopefully we can have a fun time and be successful!
Reilly-Denny Cowspotdogs says
a wonderful day indeed – we hope you spoil your awesome Momma heaps and heaps 🙂
We hope to do really well in our trials to make us all proud.
So nice that you will each get some special one on one time with Mom this weekend. Good luck to you and Bailie on earning your titles – I know you will do great!
One never knows how things will go down, you are either perfect and title, or you go home with some experience. We hope for two titles, but realistically will be happy with one. It will be fun no matter what.
Jan K says
I imagine this will be the perfect Mother’s Day weekend for your Mom, being with all of her girls at different times and doing something you all love. Getting those titles will just be icing on the cake!
Those are all such great photos. Happy Mother’s Day to your Mom, we’ll be thinking of you and keeping our fingers and paws crossed the trials go well!
I think it will be ideal for all of us as well as a lot of fun!
Sounds like the perfect way to spend Mother’s Day weekend, doing something you all love to do!!

It will be super fun and we will love the one on one time too.

Happy Mother’s Day and Nosework Weekend. ♥ I know that y’all will rock those trials! If you have any good news, let me know on Sunday so we can announce it on our sports cast. Good luck and have fun. ♥ ♥
We hope we have some good news, but one never knows. There is no second place, you either title or you don’t but we are going to try!
Those are great selfies and if you listen this weekend you will hear us all cheering you on!
I heard you guys! Thanks for the support!
Groovy Goldendoodles says
Can’t wait to hear about your titles. Good luck. Tell your mom Happy Mothers Day from the Boys.
Thank you. I didn’t get a title, but Bailie did. We still had a great weekend.
We know you will all have a great time with your nose work. Happy Mothers Day to your terrific Mom:)
Bailie got her title, and I had a great time and learned a lot.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
Happy Mother’s Day to you! Congrats on Bailie’s title.
Thank you. We are super happy Bailie got her title. That was more important than mine right now.
Hope you’ve had a purr-fect Mother’s Day!!!
It was a really fun weekend with our mom.
2 Brown Dawgs says
Hope your trials went well. Happy Mother’s Day to you.
One did, one didn’t, but the more important one got a title.
Tails Around the Ranch says
Hope your mum had a terrific Mother’s Day, Emma and why shouldn’t she…she’s got you and Bailie. 🙂
Any day she can hang out with us dogs is a good day!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend with Mom. I saw that Bailie passed, but I didn’t see anything about your day, will have to go back and check.
Sampson sleeps a lot these days too, but his appetite is good and he rallies for his walks, so I’m just taking it as he’s resting to heal that leg.
I can’t think of a better way to spend Mother’s day than in doing something you both love.
Bailie got her NW1 Title and we are all proud of her finally “getting it”. I started off with a bang, but then Mom had an issue and flipped out…it was downhill from that point on, so no title, but we had fun hanging out together and with friends all day and sniffing of course. I’m going to post more details Thursday. The pass rate is usually less than 20% at NW3 level, so we knew it would be tough the first time especially.
