19 - 25 october 2009

A very busy week for us. And some very nice photos to remember it. Monday’s photo is of Shen brushing his teeth in his Diego pajamas. On Tuesday Mean took some photos of Shen and me, and they turned out very nice. Wednesdays photo is of Bully, my oldest Cairn Terrier. He has trachea collaps, and is coughing really bad now. Don’t know how long he will be staying with me, I’m very sad about that. Thursday’s photo is of our cats eating some meat on our sink. On Friday we were all very busy for the agility competition the next day (we organized it, and that is a lot of work, almost 300 entries and an indoor venue). Mean wanted to come with daddy to work already in the horse riding hall, but she couldn’t. She pouted a while… On Saturday we had the big event, everything went very well, we had a lot of fun and at 6 PM the hall was empty. Sunday was a lazy day, but someone that learned driving from Rudy came by with a horse and carriage and the kids went for a little ride with them. Great fun!

12 - 18 october

The Monday photo is of Mean playing her toy guitar. She got it from daddy for her birthday. The Tuesday photo is of the sunrise. I took it from the route I drive everyday. On Wednesday I have singing lessons, this is the front door of the teacher J. On Thursday Zorro came to us, he was one of the litter of Felyce of last year. We are trying to find a new home for him. He is in potential a very good working German Shepherd! Friday was a stormy day, this is Shen at my little netbook. He plays games on it. The Saturday photo was taken in Germany at a German Shepherd training center. We went there with Zorro to show him to someone who was interested in him. On Sunday I went to the clubmatch of the Dutch Cairn Terrier Club. I showed little Joly, she got her last qualification to breed with her. Mean showed Joly too in the Child-Dog show, and became first. Joly had wings on her back (fairy wings) and Mean wore her Ariel princess dress with gloves and a Chinese umbrella. All people cheered and laughed that the little doggy was very pleased to wear her wings!

5 - 11 october

A very busy week! Mean turned 8 on Tuesday, so we celebrated the whole week. I had a very busy weekend too. On Wednesday I prepared everything for the Rally-O tournament on Sunday. Thursday I went out with my colleagues to a restaurant in Groningen. The food was great! On Friday we celebrated Mean’s birthday with her school friends. On Saturday I went to a meeting with dr. Changfu Chang about Chinese adoption. And on Sunday I had a Rally-O tournament about 2,5 hour’s drive from home. Busy, busy, busy!

28 september - 4 october

Monday: one of our trainers leaves the dog training school. Tuesday: Mean can really bake pancakes all by herself! Wednesday: a rainbow spotted from my car on the highway (yeah, I know it’s not safe to open the camerabox, switch on the camera, point and shoot while driving at the same time). Thursday: playing outside after dinner. The weather was good enough, although chilly. Friday: fever blisters on my mouth, no fun! Saturday: I did the puppy play hour and prepared for the dog show on Sunday. Sunday: dog show in Zwolle, my Cairn Joly had an excellent judgment and only needs one judgment more (at least very good) to have permission from the Cairn Club to breed with her.
