Pictures and Comments from the Obedience/Rally Trial

We finally have some pictures to share
 from the Obedience/Rally Trial we went to in August
(sorry, the pics are a bit overexposed)

Mom always likes to make sure we are having fun 
and she appreciates some of the comments she gets
 from the other competitors

A few years ago Hazel was being more of a clown
 than an obedience dog
Mom was trying not to let her frustration show
when a lady said to her
"I can tell you have a great relationship with your dog"
That made all the frustration go away

At this trial one lady complimented us 

on my 
"healthy weight for a pug"

Several peeps thought I was really cute

Another comment
"Oh it's the lady with the pugs!" 
"I just love it when someone knows their breed"

But mom's favorite comment of the weekend 

"I just love the way your dog looks at you!"

What We did This Summer

We can't believe that summer is almost over
But we can feel it in the air
the nights are cooler and soon the days will be too

Mom & Dad both retired this year 
and it has been great to have them home with us 
all the time

I taught Dad how to take an afternoon nap!

While Hazel & I did not go on any vacation trips
we did get some visitors to the PugRanch

Baby robins hatched in the tree by our front gate

I got to meet one of the babies up close and personal

And I like to think I helped him learn how to fly

We have had several of these funny looking dudes

This big hawk likes to hang around the farm field 
that is just near our house 
but this day he was on our fence!

Usually he is on top of the power pole 
and screeches real loud

Hazel & I spent a lot of time hanging out 

We grew a garden this year. 
So far we have harvested cucumbers, zucchini 
and the most deliciously sweet cherry tomatoes.  
We also have carrots, banana squash
 and spaghetti squash to enjoy soon
Mom has been making lots of zucchini bread - YUM!

Hazel and I had fun at an Obedience/Rally Trial in August

Hazel got to participate in the team competition

I finished my Beginner Novice Obedience Title 
and did Rally too

The really fun thing I have done this summer is Agility Class
Every Monday night we go to class
 and I have been learning a lot 

I have some obstacles at home to practice on
A really nice lady gave us a full size teeter and our instructor let us borrow a big tunnel

Here is a video of us practicing. 
I used to be scared of the teeter but having one at home to practice on has made all the difference in my confidence. 

So that has been our summer
Now that the weather is cooling down
 we may get to go on some day trips scouting out nice places to go camping next year.

Picky Hazel

We have mentioned in the past 
that Hazel can be picky when it comes to eating her food

Mom tried all different canned foods and wet foods 
to add to her kibble 
Hazel might like something for a couple of days 
but then back to putting her nose in the air

Well a couple of months ago
 Mom finally found a food that Hazel really likes!

 Fresh Pet Select Roasted Chicken
She gets it half and half with kibble

She still has to take a minute to take in the aroma 
(ha ha ha, mom is laughing cause she realized you can hear me gobbling up my food! I don't mess around!)

but no more begging her to eat!

Don't forget to share what you did this summer!

Join the blog hop tomorrow!

Hazel's Surprise

Last week Hazel got a surprise in the mail

Her beau Oreo sent her this crazy ball!

It has a hole to put treats in!

That silly smile rolled around dispensing yummies!

Hazel thought that was pretty cool!

Thank you Oreo for thinking of me!

We are thinking of everyone in the path of Irma

We are keeping you all in our pug prayers 
that you may remain safe from harm
along with those dealing with the aftermath of Harvey 
and all the firefighters and those affected 
by the terrible wild fires out west.
