Finally Photos!!!

The photos I ordered from Sam I Am's first ever agility trial, way back in October finally came in today's mail. Shall I put may very favorite photo first, or last? Hmmmmm. Best for last I say!

BIG jump!

Looking for what's next

His first ever tire

I love this photo. He hadn't qualified in this clas, but I was SO proud of him! And I love that those are my fellow Paducah Kennel Club members smiling in the background.

And this is the best, which I saved for last. This is why he didn't qualify in this class. He was supposed to lie down on this table, but he had never practiced a down on the pause table. (I mentioned we were totally not ready for this trial.) So I'm telling him "DOWN!" and he's telling me, "YES, I CAN do that same thing with MY paw, see?" Look at that sweet expression!
I love it!
I'm hugging my hounds.


  1. I simply love your blog. I have 2 boxers, both females, and just love them to death. I live south of Melber and work in Paducah. I gave your link to my brother who is an artist living in Houston. He recently had his first gallery opening and he had a great turnout.

  2. Oh the PHOTOS!! I do believe they were worth the long wait, Patience! Aren't they wonderful? Sammy looks so great and I love the ones of you two together.... I was worried because the last photo wouldn't come up at first; it finally did and I have to agree, it's just priceless!
    Rivet sends hugs to brother Sam and everyone, and so do I!

  3. Actually....I think he knows he did an excellent job and wants you to give him five in congratulations. I do that for muzzer when she gives a specially good walkie. Sometimes I pat her face. She gets all teary eyed. Don't unnerstan that woman. But ya gotta love a muzzer.

    kisses to you and the waggle

    Oh and to Mr. Bill too.
