We have a new family member! This is Chipotle (Chip for short).


For quite a long time now I’ve been yearning to add another dog to the family. Bella is perfect in so many ways and I love her for all that she is, but Bel just doesn’t find human attention/petting reinforcing. She’s my little independent girl who lives to work and only cuddles on her own terms. Like if you have food (and really I wouldn’t call it cuddling so much as mauling you to get to the food!):

Did you say treat?

Chip is just the opposite. He thinks attention from humans or other dogs is just the best thing in the world and he can’t seem to get enough. “Work” on the other hand, not so much. Don’t get me wrong, he enjoys a good game of fetch or ‘how-many-times-can-I-squeak-the-toy-in-a-row’, but he’s not necessarily an agility prospect. Which is fine with me. Perhaps with time and training he will enjoy having a ‘job’, but for now we will be focusing on the basics, especially recall.

Don’t laugh…it’s just a point and shoot

By loading this page and viewing these pictures you are agreeing not to mock my mediocre pictures.  (Any violations of the previous statement will be interpreted as an offer to buy me a real camera!)  These are just some shots I took while bumming around at the mid atlantic showcase.

Play or sleep?

Sometimes I have to wonder what is going on in Bella’s head.  She acts like she just wants to curl up and snooze, but then strikes a pose like this.  

Seriously dog?  You are nuts!
