Ho Hum the Doldrums

Been back to work for two weeks now, this part of the winter is always pretty deary, dull, blah, ho hum. I'm not much of an outdoor person and we've had some terribly cold weather and lots of snow in December so not much has been going on. We've just had a little thaw so at least now there is room to put more snow.

There's no agility trials, at least that I go to, until February and then there's only one; have to wait until March for the trials to really begin.  We have only had a few practices and have only been taking quite short walks. I guess we're lucky to have places to practice indoors. This weekend, we started to get back into the old schedule, going over to the park both mornings to play Frisbee.  Keltic is not much for playing Frisbee, really all he wants to do is steal the Frisbee and then have you chase him.  Now that it's lighter when I get home we'll have to start going over to the park more in the evenings too. 

Squirrel chasing has been a favourite pastime in this snowy weather. Keltic can see them from where he sits in the family room and, if you don't let him out to try and get them, then he's bouncing off the wall.

If only I could climb...
This week we have to do some agility practice in the basement, going to try and start over on the 2 by 2 weaves with Keltic to see if we can improve on his entries. With Beckett, I'm trying to teach him to go out to the far end of the weaves.

Ho Hum....


  1. It has been a horrible winter and so hard to be motivated to do anything! Looks like we are in for another very cold week. Stay warm!

  2. Looks like they had fun at the park!

    Oreo likes to steal toys and get chased too. Luckily, Chewy likes to chase him, so it's a good way to wear them both out!

    Hopefully winter doesn't drag on too long this year.

  3. We haven;t had any snow this year at all...but the cold is just awful...I hate not being able to go outside.

  4. Brrr it looks cold but we'd be so there with you for a squirrel hunt.
    Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Yea , winter Is horrible. No color, everything here is brown. It gets dark to soon. I sure will be glad when spring gets here.

  6. Looks like they had fun at the park! Not long until the trials start!

  7. Ugh, going back to work must be a horrible thought after Christmas, especially with no fun agility trials. At least there's plenty of squirrels for Beckett and Keltic to chase! I'll have to wait until it's stopped raining until I can get my jumps and weaves out again, sigh!
