Chica is home

Monday, March 31st, 2008

Gracie AKA Chica did terrific driving to Houston.  She started exploring her new yard and house that evening. She is adjusting very well and seems to be having a good time here.   Attached are a few pictures of her fist full day. I will send more later.

Tony starts obedience

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008
Hi Ruth Ann:
I’m attaching some recent photos of Tony. He LOVES to play out in the yard, and especially likes a good roll in the grass. He is obsessed with playing fetch with a ball–I think he would run until he dropped as long as I kept throwing the ball for him. Tony has even been able to get Skipper (his Papillon big brother) to play chase with him on several occasions in the past couple of weeks.
Tony had his first formal obedience class last week, and once he settled down and quit barking at all the other dogs, he did very well.

Tony is a very sweet, funny little guy and I’m glad he’s a part of our family.

Fred & Sarge – Naptime

Monday, March 3rd, 2008
Hi Ruth Ann,
I really am enjoying the papillon fancy list!  Thanks for making that available.
I took these pictures this morning.  I caught the boys napping together.  Just after I took the pictures, Sarge was on his back, out like a light!  Helping mama around the house in the morning is so tiring!  We are on spring break now and so my little helpers are with me every minute during the day!
We start our next round of classes tomorrow.  Fred is really good at Rally – a couple of Q’s in novice already.  Sarge is very easy to train.  He is a total velcro dog and wants to please more than anything in the world.  I think he will be great at rally and obedience!  Fred starts agility training this month, too.  He is so fast.  I wonder if I can ever keep up with him!  🙂  Sarge will be a great agility guy too, since he LOVES to jump.  We have already had to have a “discussion” about not jumping on to the kitchen counter!!  What a little athlete.
I love these boys so much!!!  While they love each other dearly, they still love their individual walks and training times the best.  So, as you can see, I’m having a ball!
Good luck at the spring shows and thanks again for the lists!
Alice, Fred, and Sarge
