Fetch the paper

Although Kay and Neil read the news online most of the time, they do get the Saturday papers delivered to our door. I think they do this for me mostly, as I love to race down the hall and fetch them.

Unfortunately, now I have to share the fun with Gracie. Luckily the paper comes in two parts.

She doesn't even know what she's doing and slows me down big time. But she just has to be part of it. Have I mentioned what a pest she is?

Anyway, here is the video of this morning's excitement. Kay is not impressed that we have footage of her in pajamas and robe... but hey, not my fault - that's what she looks like early in the morning.

We get lots of yummy liver bits with this game...
and Kay and Neil get a slobbery newspaper, delivered to hand.

Fun day

Last Sunday we went to the Airedale fun day. It turned out to be a lovely day - lots of Airedale friends and wonderful sunny weather.

Kay and Neil set up a small agility course for us all to play on. Many of the Dales had not seen a any agility equipment before, so we gave them lots of time to practice before we had a race.

Little Gracie and Kay were the fastest of all! It should have been me, but Neil is new to agility and he was just so slow. Hmmph.

Best of all was Major, an older Dale who is nearly totally blind - but he did the whole course, over jumps, up the A frame, through the tunnel and weave poles - he was amazing. We gave him a special prize. He just trusts his Janine so much, he follows her voice anywhere.

We also played a soccer relay in honour of the World Cup. I thought all the kicking was just silly, so I picked the ball up and carried it to the finish line, but even then, our team didn't win. I did win the Recall race however, so that was something.

Unfortunately, not many photos were taken on the day (Kay and Neil were too busy organising the games, I guess). You will have to go over to Noah's blog for more photos.

But we did get some pics of Fozzie and Diesel - Gracie's brothers. They are looking very handsome and it was great to see them together. What lovely boys they are.
