Front Yard Revisted

On the weekend we went back to Front Yard Dog Run to stay over night with Jazz and Dixie. Last time we stayed in the trailer house (right)but this time we stayed in the caravan (left). It was freezing when we arrived and a bit overcast but the girls got in a bit of time in their private dog run. We made a BBQ dinner just before the rain set in and then we settled in for the night.

The next day was bright and sunny but still quite cold! Jazz and Dixie couldn't wait to get back out in the dog run to chase each other around and rough house together. The trailer home next door had two German Shapards staying there and when they came out to run in their dog run Dixie began her usual crazy bark/howl that she does when she sees big dogs. She is trying to show that she is fearless when infact she is really scared. Anyway we all enjoyed our weekend away.

Long Time No Blog!

Its been a while since I blogged or commented on friends blogs, but getting back to school got busier than I expected! We have been enjoying being mobile and have taken the girls somewhere each weekend. Yesterday we went back to a dog run that we dicovered in the first week of Jan. It is a grass run with agility equipment that is very clean. Yesterday was a nice sunny day so we thought we'd go and run the girls through the agility course a few times. If I have snacks in my hand Jazz does the course perfectly but Dixie tends to skip out the things she doesn't like such as jumping through the tire. Both Shin and I ran them through the course a few times as well as playing fetch the ball many times so Jazz and Dixie slept peacefully all the way home!

Snow Fun

Last weekend after returning from Australia we took the girls on a little weekend getaway to Sugadaira, Nagano which is a ski resort area. We stayed at a Caro Foresta Hotel which are so pet friendly. When we arrived there was already snow everywhere, including the dog run where we let Jazz and Dixie run around for a bit. Dixie loved the white powdery snow but to Jazz it was just frozen rain and she wasn't as impressed! We got some great photo opportunities!
