Doubling Down on the Doodle Thing

Doodle is fun to say, it feels good on the tongue. Mr. Doodle Pants, Doodlicious, Doodle Head, Doodle, Doodle Pup, Where’s My Doodle, whatever, it’s fun. We have Doodles of all types in our classes every single session. And as with all puppies, sans breed, when a little one walks into our training area, I…

A Story kind of day …

Sometimes I just like to sit and take photos of my dogs. They do their thing, and I just watch. Today out by our pond, my dog Story stopped on the other side of the fountain and was watching me watching him. … And I fell in love all over again… Nancy

East or North?

Easter is our time to get out into this beautiful world, and see it for it’s true simple beauty. We usually head North or East, there really isn’t an explanation or a reason behind this, it just seems to happen that way. This has pretty much been our norm for 18 years or so. No…
