Doggie Gymnastics

Conditioning is a big part of Indy's puppy agility class, and I finally remembered to take the camera to snap a few pics of Indy doing a "handstand."

Indy has learned to back his rear feet up this carpeted ramp until he is doing a handstand.  Very good shoulder strengthening!  As you can see by Indy's wagging tail, he enjoys his doggie gymnastics.

Indy does his handstands all on his own and can hold himself in that position for quite some time.  If they happen to add doggie gymnastics as an Olympic sport this summer, Indy will be ready!!

OK, I just had to post this picture of Indy with his big, goofy ears flipped back ;)

Happy 7th Birthday, Tess!

Besides being April Fool's Day, today was Tess' seventh birthday.  The years have gone by so quickly since Tess became a part of our family!

 Here's Tess taking a little sampling of her birthday cupcakes.

Would you please unwrap that and gimme my cupcake?!!

It's good to be the birthday girl...

...even though you have to share with your sister and brother.

Tess also got a stuffed cupcake toy for her birthday.

Tess had lots of birthday fun today, including playing with her new toy, taking a walk in the park with Aunt Mariann and Uncle Jim, and splashing in the creek.  Her birthday may be April 1, but this girl is no fool!

"The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too."
