Welcome to my blog. This is all about me, Edge, and growing up with Mom and Gary. Mom was going to blog but I took over as it is a lot of fun. I am a Weimaraner that loves to hunt, play rally, agility, run, and eat good food. The World is my Playground and you are invited to share my experiences!

I'm Back!

It is so good to be back to my blog!  I have really missed sharing all the fun things we do and have so much to catch up on.  Mom has taken over the computer!

I guess the most life changing event is that I have a new little brother!  He is still "little" but he is 2 already!   He is a New Year's Baby and just turned two.  And he is a little redhead, he is not like me - at all!!   His name is Bam! but Gary calls him hellboy and I agree with Gary!

Here is a picture of Bam! and I.

The other big change in our life is that Mom and I teach Nose Work for Fenzi Academy.  We were in the very first Fenzi class (nose work!) and have not missed one since!   I LOVE my nose work and am good at it.  Mom says it gives me confidence - more on that later!  We were also Denise groupies and followed her all over the place taking her seminars and doing privates before anyone really "knew her name!"

We have also started Parkour and doing a lot of trail walks, I guess we started those when Bam! came along so he was good for something :)   We have found a lot of great parks and trails and I will share those later too.

It is so good to be back!  Stay tuned.... more updates to follow!

Great Weekend

We had such a wonderful weekend.  It was truly Weimaraner weather and we played outside a lot.   Today we started our day with another wonderful walk in the park.  We were the only ones in the park for quite awhile and we walked for over an hour.  Well, Mom walked, I ran and ran and ran.  There were not many critters, but I checked out every inch of the park.  We also took different paths since we did not have to worry about bicycles.

Then we ran in the back yard and did some obedience in the house.  After lunch, Gary mowed the yard and Nique and I went out and chased each other.  Well, she chased me after I started it.  She was trying to be good and I wanted her to chase me!

Then we went to the township building and did nose work.  Mom said I was a super star :)   The wind was strong and I still found all my hides in record time.  We did 4 vehicle hides and 4 exterior hides.

When we got home Gary had a super dinner ready.  We had chicken medallions, stuffed mushrooms and potato casserole.  It was all very yummy.  Mom made pumpkin dip and we had some of that on her special cookies.

And to end the evening, she let me run in the back yard again.  A great way to end our awesome weekend.

Home Depot to play

We went to Home Depot to do our obedience home work this afternoon.  Mom found a man standing at the paint counter and we used him as our judge.  He was a 'dog smart' man and figured out what we were doing.  He was really nice and helped us a lot.  So then Mom used him as my reward!  So for doing my setups, I got to go say hi.  He was waiting on his wife to get paint, so he was having as much fun as we were.  Then his wife came over and she played the game too.  It was nice to meet them and even better that they helped us so much. 

After dinner we did nose work.  We did two household items and two interior hides.  I found all of them FAST.  Mom got a rubber ducky and put the odor inside.  She was afraid I would not be able to find it as the odor was "trapped."  But I found it in about 20 seconds, she told me what a super star I am.    She needs to up the ante, as I am doing better than her.  Well, I guess that is pretty typical with Weimaraners.  She always says that you need to be one step ahead of us.

Here we go again

Mom is trying to turn me into a ghost!  I think she needs to try again..

Walk in the park

Mom and I just started our morning walk when it started raining.  I thought she might make us go home, but she said we could stay and walk.  YEA!!   I do not mind walking in the rain, especially in my park.  It was so much fun and there were not very many people there.  We got to play a lot longer too as I did not get hot.   Mom thought it was pretty with all the Fall colors.

Birthday..... more

Here is the great present Mom gave me

She said it is a very special collar for a very special boy!!! 
Grandma gave me money and I was able to go shopping!!!   I got cookies and an antler.  Mom let me go shopping BEFORE our weekend trip so I could take my antler with me.  Thank you Grandma!!
It was a fabulous birthday weekend.  But now it is time to snuggle in as I am glad to be home!

It's my Birthday

What a great birthday weekend.  Off to Gettysburg with Mom for Nose Work, long hikes, and good food.  Nose Work was the best though - I really love playing "search."   Then home for another vacation day with Mom that included walks in the park, off to the pond to chase geese and swim.  Does it get any better??   I guess it does as we came home to a great meal by Gary.

Look at the great meal that he cooked - Just for Me!!!

After dinner we went to Orange Leaf for some great yogurt.  I even got to eat out of my own cup!!  But as soon as it was gone I was giving Gary the eye hoping he would share his too.

Resting for Afternoon Searches

Most do not realize how stimulating and what hard work searches are.   They are very mentally exhausting and depending on the search area, can be physically exhausting.  Not to mention the walk to get to the search area.   I am resting up for the afternoon search.  It will be a lot more walking as we need to get clear out to the exterior hide.  But I AM ready!!!

Our Hangout

At NoseWork trials, most of the time, you must hang out in your vehicle.  Searches are inside, so we cannot crate inside.  Since they are "dog" friendly, you cannot set up tents as some dogs don't behave and will be mean to other dogs walking by.  So this is "our hangout" for the day.  Lucky for me, Mom got my puppy penthouse.  Really appreciating it this weekend.  I can really stretch out!!

There is also room for Mom to sit, that way she can sit back here with me and share snacks.   And, as you can tell, it is her "desk" area too!   Fun, fun, fun!!!!

A Cool Start

We have arrived!!!   It is a cool morning, but that is such a GOOD thing.  Mom gave me a blanket just in case as she has to go to all the briefings and will not be able to monitor me.  So I can do what I want with the blanket.

She also prepared the van, so we can keep that coolness inside for ME!

Resting up for the BIG Day

After a long drive, a long walk, a nice dinner (and part of Mom's dinner) I am getting ready for the big day tomorrow.  Dreaming of searching....

Ready for our NW trip

Sweet Frog

Mom and I have been going different places after work to do our home work.  We found a new place for yogurt and it is GOOD.  After we finish our homework, we go there to have cold yogurt and relax for a few minutes.   I sure am glad Mom found this great place.  Now we can get yogurt no matter where we go to work.

More posing

I could not believe it.  Mom found MORE flowers at the park today.  I did not think there were more posing opportunities, but leave it to her to find another one.
