Harley says, "You wanted this?"

New Titles & Kudos, in as much as almost all events, but for some outdoors, & those that have not gone online/virtual, have been cancelled:

Natalie Culver's Jasper and Ivy got some mail. Their Trick Dog Novice certificates from AKC with the video trick dog program. Think circus dogs or dancing dogs trick sequences, the Novice level.

If I didn’t tell you about the kids gardening glove that one of them chewed to bits today (I suspect it was Ivy) in the photo you might think they were well behaved trained performance dogs. Lol. They do like to perform, but they haven’t mastered the well behaved part yet.

Hannah and I were in process of planting the rest of our first ever veggie garden when the glove must have been stolen (ok to call it a victory garden?). Last set of seedlings that the kids started with a garden seed kit our grocery store was giving away special gift for kids during these stressful times. The garden looks ok. The gardening gloves looking a little modified thanks to pup.

Jasper and Ivy went lure coursing, and each got their Junior Courser titles, plus they did their QC (Qualified Courser). So! Now they have 2 titles after their names. Pickwick's Apu Miss Kitty's Can-Can Girl JC TKN & Pickwick's Apu Keep on Dancing JC TKN.
