Tell Me Thursday #9 and a whole lotta Lynn! :)

1. If you are not at the 2011 Sheepdog Finals this weekend, what are you planning to do?

I hopefully will be sitting in the middle of a lake, with no cell phone reception, fishing and enjoying relaxation :) I will however be checking results with my iphone, as there is reception where I am staying :)

2. ONE item you never walk onto the trial field (any trial field or training class will suffice) without?

Confidence...even if I don't know what the hell I'm doing, I make sure my dog THINKS I do :) KK says, "Be a Duck, that duck may be swimming for it's life under the water, but on top of the water it looks cool as can be." find your inner duck :) Or drink more...or both?

3. Katy wants to know if you have a pre-run ritual that you observe?

I will kiss my dogs...not sure why, they normal try to get away from me because they are either watching sheep and can't even figure out why I'm interacting with them at all, or they are tugging before going into the agility ring, which also shouldn't involve owner interaction. JUST DON'T TOUCH ME is their motto. So I kiss them...we all feel better after that :) I also have weird leash things, same dog same leash ALL THE TIME. Can't use a different leash on a different dog. YES, the world will come to an end. Don't even try it.

4. How old were you when you had your first real kiss?

Um...well, obviously it wasn't that memorable as I had to think a long time on this one...I THINK 13? That is a total guess...No idea really. Laura, I refuse to answer when I lost my virginity ;-)

5. Bonnie wants to know what you do for yard mud control in the winter?

LMAO!!! We have SNOW, LOTS OF SNOW. And its REALLY F-ING COLD, so there is no mud. When it thaws? We just walk them all in the fields around the property...and we wipe all paws off before coming in the house, sadly we also have off white carpeting (yes I know....idiots, but it was there when we bought the house) yes, every, single, time, dogs come in during the spring and fall, we wipe 28 paws. Annoying, but necessary.

Now, onto PICTURES!!! Lynn!!! :) Got a photo CD from Great Dane Photos :) LOVE!!! Thought I would share them! These are the first pics I have of Miss Stewart!!!! YAY!!!!

Love this! YEE-HAW!!!!!

What GREAT pictures! Love them!

Love the kissing the dogs ritual. :)

I so totally wasn't going there on the virginity thing. My mom occasionally reads my blog. LOL!

It makes me feel strangely better that I'm not the only one with white/offwhite carpet!

Not sure but I am assuming your comment was referencing the photo ABOVE it, while I looked at the photo BELOW it and was drawn to the Judge's face :D HAHAHA but like I said I assume it was referencing Miss Lynn ;)
