Mom's been working

Sorry about the extreme lack of posting! Mom has been working (which is a good thing) and when she's not, we've been outside trying to enjoy the nice weather! We've been to the park and to my favorite pet trail (super, super muddy). We have been practicing some agility in the yard - really short sequences and mom is rewarding me for speed. We're still working on several new-ish tricks and have made a little progress. Yesterday at the park mom whistle-recalled me off bunny fur - I was a good boy! The other evening we had our first barbecue of the year - mom and dad had hamburgers (they don't eat a lot of meat but like the occasional grilled burger) while I had a beef marrow bone! So things have been pretty good!

By the way, if you ever feel like listening to some classical music and want to check out mom and dad at work, the CSO has an instant encore page and you can go there and listen to recent performances and check out upcoming concerts, etc. (The instant encore recordings don't seem to work if you have Chrome for your browser, though, so use something else).

It's finally Spring - our daffodils started to bloom today! So even though we may still get some cold weather (and snow?) at least we are the farthest away from the dead of winter that we will ever be! Happy Spring everyone!

Gotta zoom!

Hi Ricky! It was warm here today - we went to the park! First time in months! It was fun.
your pals, Morgan & Naisie

Sounds like you've been busy with lots of fun things. I think the extra daylight in the evenings is giving me a little burst of energy too. I think you're right about spring finally coming too. It did snow a bit on us yesterday while were doing the Course a Lure, but today was beautiful. :-)

Hi ricky, I'll let my daughter know about your mom and dad's concerts. She's studying to become a pianist.

Dawn said...

Wow! You have daffodils BLOOMING? I've been away from home for 5 days, but I'm pretty sure that the daffodils were only little nubs in the ground when I left, so odds are they are not blooming yet!

Thanks for giving me your mom and dad's music link. I'll for sure listen to it while I'm up here sitting the cat. Have to say, a cat does not inspire spring like thoughts like going to the park or playing at agility in the yard.

I think I miss my girl.

Excellent job recalling away from BUNNY FUR! GOOD BOY!

Priscilla said...

Wow! That's great. I'm sure she would have loved to hear the concert.
