My dearest Koto is nearly 3 years old and her stalker Niah is nearly 5 month old!
Koto is settling down a lot since we've got Niah but on the other hand, she is very reactive and sensitive for small things. I always feel that she is still trying to adjust her self to our life, she is an emotional girl. I really love her clear emotion. Very difficult dog but she is absolutely beautiful.
Niah is opposite in personality. He is optimistic, does not care about noise, dogs, cats, just a bit scared of trucks and trams but wants to please us all the time. Niah’s long legs and tail are amazing! His BC crouching position is getting lower and lower every month! He loves attack Koto or any dogs from behind; always goes flat like a pancake (hiding) then suddenly attack!
They are getting along extremely well. Great personality match and we are very proud of our choice.
But not at the park! He has been annoying Koto too much so me and my pertner have been going to the park separately with one dog. Morning together, night time separate. This is becoming our routine.
It's a bit of work and time consuming but we can actually train them well!
Some pictures from last weekend. We went to Daylesford again to organise our wedding party. Yes, I am getting married in March this year! so I am pretty busy for organising our hand-made party in Daylesford. Pictures are from Tasma House where we are having a part and these instruments are made by musician owner of Tasma house. He is making them on his own! very impressive! oh- we have so many things to do before our wedding party but at the same time, it is very exciting!
とにかく友達がディルスフォードに住んでいて犬達の面倒みてくれるし沢山情報収集が出来て本当に助かっています。琴ニアもいつも本当に楽しんでるみたい！ニアはいつの間に ボストンテリアのジュウ君よりぐーんと大きくなっていました. 最後の写真はトランポリンの上で口論中の琴ニア。ニアがいつもの様にはしゃぎ過ぎて琴に注意されてます（笑） It has been great to have friends who loves dog in Daylesford, our friends are looking after Koto and Niah when we are running around the place to place. They also had a great time, running / playing / swimming with great friend Jyu the boston terrier in their back yard. Niah loves trampoline so much and he is always on top of the trampoline and showing little bounce to us! He is already bigger than Jyu! the last picture is koto telling him off, because he has being naughty here!
I will be attending 2 agility schools for Koto, on Monday and Friday night in this year. And regularly attend the sheep herding lessons for both dogs. I will be attending obedience lessons for Niah on Saturday and ALSO!! I have got a place at Silvia Trkman's long distance Puppy/Trick class by internet assignment! This class will be continue for 3 month and I am very very excited about taking her lessons! I am inspired by her a lot and she is my favorite dog trainer!
I will be studying at University as well....Year 2011 will be learning, progressing, improving, and understanding! I really hope I will make better relationship with my dogs and spice my life up with them! Just to hope I am not doing too much.
今日からニアのObedienceがスタートしました！パピースクールが終わってクリスマスホリディが終わるまで２ヶ月、やはり学校に行かないと社会科スキルも呼び戻しのスキルも少し疎かになっていたのでディストラクションの多いスクール環境で 練習するのが一番、本当にメリハリがでた！今日のニアのヒール、ステイ、リードを木に繋いでマテ、ヒールウィーブ、全て完璧に出来ましたよ！ とにかく毎日琴姉ちゃんを追掛けてばかりなんだけど他のパピーや犬に追掛けてもらってご機嫌でした♪ Niah started Obedience lessons today. Since we finished puppy school, we didn't have proper lessons of socialization and recalling from play. he was loosing a great skill so I was very happy to back in school with many distraction environment! He was really good and most of the practices did perfectly and he was also super happy to eat yummy treats and chased by many pups and dogs for socialization!!
I love salsa sauce, this is my first Mango-Salsa sauce and it turns out beautifully! mixed with Mangos, Red Onion, Jarapeno, ginger, lime juice and my hand made sambal sauce! We had this with travelly and it was great. Mango smooth up sweetness and spiciness!
We had great weekend at Morning ton Peninsula, with our friends and agility club classmate Cam and Gracie the PWD. Grace will start working at hospital from February as a therapy dog. She take her everywhere off-lead, Grace is very calm and gentle for 1.5yo!! very impressive.
Niah suffered from diarrhea during all weekend, it was really bad one and he lost a lot of weights. He looks like wild jackal who haven't had food for awhile. He is taking anti-boitics and recovering now but very very thin and no-energy. poor little boy.
He put dead animal (bird and penguin!) and dead fishes on his mouth when we were walking on the beach. I will walk with him on-lead next time..
Koto was very excited to be back in Sumers and having a lot of space to run! we practice 2x2 poles and tight turn jumping.
weekend snap shot, Niah is not well
Niah's trick Hide! yes I can't see you Niah ;)
Niah was very calm and gentle with horse.
Thank you for gave a chance to crazy BC to meet horses, Cam!!
its so cute to look at it! and he also love it! I am re-teaching Koto to Hide. She only scratch her nose, not really hiding her face over. but it is not easy to re-teach already learned tricks.. I changed name and capturing natural behavior to re-set.
They are also learning skate boarding last few days!
Pretty funny.. I actually never ride skate board but I am teaching them how to ride!
I found this broken skate board on the street. So I fixed wheels and it is no problem for dog's light body weight!
Niah has a bit blood on his face in this picture, he lost one of his canine puppy teeth this day!
Before, I wrote a story of Blind BC Bonnie and Clyde. I met these 2 fox terrier at the park who are exactly like Bonnie and Clyde. One is over 10 years old and blind, another one is just about 2 years old.
When owner got this black faced younger dog as a pup, she taught him to hold old blind brother's leash and walk with him. They trust each other and both are very happy to walking together! 2yo is always working for owner to keep blind one with them! very reliable!
