Bodhi’s Thoughts on Obedience Trials…

Hi I’m Bodhi, I’m happiest when I can run free in the tall grass!

I’m even happier when I can point and flush birds

and leap through the air (look Mom no paws on the ground).

This is the best! I even get to shake the morning due off my coat and get the humans wet.

Did I hear you say it’s time to leave for the Obedience Trial?

This is what I think about sit, stay, left turn, right turn, come, figure eight… Yeah that’s right, one big raspberry to that…

Boy this is fun… Sit, not me and definitely not on the plastic tennis court surface, would you sit on it?

Loser human…

Merry Xmas from Hawaii!

Hope you all had a Merry Xmas!

After being jealous of seeing all those great “Christmas & Winter Photo Competition” images from the Northern Hemisphere crowd on the Vizsla Forum, Alpha promised to take me to the snow. Except I live in Hawaii… So after a ninety mile drive to a final elevation of 13,700 ft in a cramped Toyota regular cab 4×4 pickup with two humans…

We reached the top of the mountain!

We looked for the snow to the right…

Then we looked to the left…

Then back to the right. Hmmm where is the snow???

And then we found the snow in Hawaii! Not much, but it was there on Xmas Morning.

I’ve never seen the stuff before and it was cold but lots of fun!

I ran in it…

and ran some more (it was cold, how else am I supposed to keep warm)

Eventually we came down the mountain and explored the 9,000 ft elevation with Alpha. Lots of great Franklin bird smells…

And then explored the 7000 ft elevation where I smelled and ate the long grass amongst the Koa trees…

It was the best Xmas ever!

I hope yours was too,

Bodhi

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

This morning I did my traditional weigh-in and alpha plotted out the results:
Bodhi Growth Chart

I’m finally starting to slow down in my growth rate as an almost 9 month old “V”. I still have lots of energy to burn each day and not an ounce of fat on my body. Alpha seems to do this weight thing to predict how heavy I’ll be when I become an adult.
