Everytime I see Koto's picture that I posted few days ago, I think she matured nicely. There is no craziness and out of control moment in her eyes. She is becoming very royal and great big sister to Niah. Here are some of my favorite Koto's puppy photos! She had floppy ears for awhile!! 先日のせた琴の写真を見るたび、琴もいい大人になったなぁ と思います。あの1歳から3歳までのハチャメチャさも 全く感じなくなり、今では弟教育係の本当にいいお姉ちゃん。 相変わらず犬は大嫌いですが、牧羊犬はフレンドリーでは仕事にならないので 犬と仲良くしない様 ブリーディングされてきた犬種なのです。仕方ない〜 そんなお姉ちゃんのパピー時代。 垂れ耳なのか立ち耳なのか まだどっちにするか決まらなかった頃：）
The beautiful spring weather has been distrusting our study. Few more weeks to finish our study and semester, but It is not easy to sit in front of computer and work when its so warm and sunny, dogs are begging to play outside as always, and I just can't say no! Our backyard is finally recovering from muddy and wet winter soil, because of being along the rain water way from top of the hill. (Our house locate in the bottom of the hill, near the stream) My partner finally cut lawn so the backyard is looking so much better! We are so excited to have summer again! Summer time starts in few weeks! We had cute guests visiting in our back yard today. Possum and Cocatoos! So great to have wild animal visiting us all the time!
--Running without hands is a great way for handlers to understand how to
use motion, legs, eye contact and arms when handling a dog. Running and turning with hand behind your back is a great way to teach handlers keep a nice balance and stay on feet. 身体の動き、アイコン、肩のみで手を使わずに29障害をクリア！すごーい バランストレーニングに最適みたいです！ 今度3障害くらいでやってみよう：）
I had a happy day and happy news :) My major project, Tsunami-recovery proposal presentation has finished yesterday and it went well. I quite liked my proposed design and happy for what I got in the end! Also! we were at agility trial today, did BIG 6 runs! and got AD TITLE! 2x2nd place in Novice Agility and Novice Jumping! I passed Novice Agility! Well done Niah Koto was running so great, but tiny mistakes, didn't get pass. but we all had a great day! yay, Spring is here! 日本でやって来たプロジェクトのプレゼンが終了しました！ そして今日は一日中アジリティのトライアルに参加してきました ニアはアジリティとノービス両方2席を獲得 そしてノービスアジリティのタイトルも獲得！来月のトライアルからは エクセレント となります：） 琴は残念ながら小さなハンドリングミスのためパスできませんでしたが、 凄くいい走りでした。ニアのビデオです
