Uh oh...Flirtie's new nickname is Destruto-Dobe...look what she did to the sprinkler system. The pipe used to be underground and the whole hose is gone from the left side....uh oh Flirtie earned herself dog run time when mom is gone.

Mom tried to run off some of her extra energy and took her to the dog park today and left me at home...harrumph! She says Flirtie needs to learn to be independent. Ha...then why is she tandem running with her black lab friend? They look like twins.

Here she met a teeny tiny dog...

But mostly she ran and ran and ran and ran....and then cooled off

Healing Powers

Today was a day for healing! Dad had surgery last Friday and Mom finally convinced him to stay home for the whole day. He got mad at me for running across his blueprints. First off, they don't look blue to me and Mom said NO WORK Dad. Uh oh Dad knows how to give that same look Mom does when I'm in trouble.

Mom came home earrly to spend the day with she says it was to make sure Dad didn't work and to take Kiana to see Dr. Gabby. Dr. Gabby gave Kiana her last miracle pills last Friday and Kiana had to get her parts checked out. Mom tricked Dad into coming to so he wouldn't be working.

It's a good thing Mom brought her kleenex, boy can she cry. When they got there 4 people came up and gave sister Kiana the biggest hugs and COOKIES too. How come nobody brought me cookies home??? They were surprised that the miracle pills are working this time. They said she was very sick last week and thought it might be the end of her journey. Mom cried tears of joy and cried and cried.

Dr. Gabby was so excited to see the new and improved Kiana. Off they went for blood tests. It was time for kleenex again. Mom is so emotional. Dr. Gabby says Kiana's liver enzymes are slightly elevated but if they stay at this level, we can try more miracle pills in two weeks. If not, well, that's when the kleenex came out again. But look at this...she looks happy to me. She stole momma's toy that my 2 legged brother won for her.

My 2 legged brother coined the term Flirtitude....the art of an 80 lb Doberman "puppy" squeezing herself into a ball of love.

Mom and I had THREE whole days of agility this weekend! 6 runs!! I am now Gabalicious NA which means on Saturday I got my Novice Standard Agility title and placed 6th out of 21 dogs. We would have been 4th but mom put me into the WRONG end of the tunnel! I also flew off the table which cost us another 5 points.

The fancy show photographer captured my glorious form! Fun with tunnels!

Racing to the top of the A-Frame

Flying over the dog walk!!!
PS It's a good thing we got that title cuz Mom and I didn't qualify at all the rest of the weekend! We had a lot of fun and mom said we made a lot of people laugh too.

Heat Wave's been over 100 degrees for 3 days. We were all hot and tired so Dad thought swimming might be a good idea!!! Look SHARK attack...oh wait, that's just me trying to get my sister's ball.

Here is my sister showing off by beating everybody to the ball again and again and again.

Ha ha, Dobes can't swim. Flirtie still can't swim even tho mom and dad kept helping her.
Mom had to come save Kiana. No DUNKING FLIRTIE! My sister gets scared and climbs on whoever is near her. I learned to stand out of the way!

We have a visitor!

What's this? Mom forgot to tell me we have a new friend coming to visit. He's actually an old friend mom says but I don't remember meeting him. His name is Drake and he's daddy's 2 legged son....don't worry I know I'm still the favorite child. I think mom brought him just for me to play with. I chirp, he comes running to fix me or play with me or feed me! He lets me drag my sleepie all over the top of him and jump up and down. We think it's very much fun but mom doesn't have any pictures because she can't give me THAT LOOK and snap a picture at the same time. She says I can't jump on him anymore...NO FUN MOM.

Flirtie decided he is her cuddlebug and snuggled right up to him when he came home.

The Adventures of a Frisbee Dog

Today was the annual Pups N Pubs Frisbee Competition. Since Dad has been a member of the club over a year, he bumped us up to the Hot Shot Division, otherwise known as Intermediate. Living up to my being Gablicious, I leapt my way to a 3rd place trophy, just two weeks after my big surgery! My friend and 2 legged brother Drake is holding the trophy here and Dad is holding the precious DOG FOOD we won!! Mom was very proud of me for being careful out there.

I got to run in the Novice Division with Drake because I'm so good!!! This was Drake's first time ever at a dog event, so I showed him what a great time it can be.

Blah blah mom says I have to tell you my sisters were there too. Flirtie did pretty good considering she doesn't know what COME means....Dad had to move us all up into the hot shot division and she tied sister Kiana for 6th out of 9!

Of course, my sister Kiana tried to show boat me...she won the CROWD PLEASER award and another 20 lbs of Dog food!

I do feel I should point out that my trophy was BIGGER than hers tho!!!

A Shout Out to Miss Susan and Q

While Mom and I stayed home and rested yesterday, Miss Susan and Q attended the Vizsla Club of Northern California Walking Field Trial. I knew Q was on fire because she just got her Senior Hunt Title with phenomenal scores!! And she's only 2 years old!! But little did I know that Q would SWEEP the trial and win both the Amateur Gun Dog AND Hunter's Gun Dog with top scores! First Place! Congratulations so Miss Susan and can see Q's early desire for birds!

Which blossomed into this magnificant hunting dog!

Not only that but Q is a show dog too hee dog hunting dog agility dog...she is the VERSATILE VIZSLA!

Smarty Pants

Whew, I am feeling a lot better, but still so very tired and sore. Mom decided it was ok to take Flirtie to obedience class because she needs MANNERS. I slept and slept and slept and slept. Mom thinks Flirtie is "so smart" just because Miss Lisa taught her to High Five in less than 10 minutes...WHATEVER...I have outsmarted the soft cone, t-shirt AND gotten the hard cone off my head in less than that just WHO is the smart one now???

Laying Low

I've been laying low and dosed up on pain meds...thank you Mom. On Thursday, I had all my girl parts taken out AND my spleen. Holy moly that's a lot of surgery for one little Vizsla. Mom says I'm doing better by leaps and bounds each day. Today, I have my cone on and I'm one unhappy camper. I've given Mom all my pitiful looks, but nope, she won't take it off.

I'm going back to bed for some rest now and to cuddle with Mom.
