Happy Saturday

A happy Saturday started with sunrise!
Shyla and I did some training games while we were bathed in the sunrise light. She "took a bow", worshiping the sun.
She LOVES our training. This next photo might look the same as the previous one, until you focus on her tail. These two photos were part of a rapid-fire series of photos that I took while she took her bow. The photos show that she wagged her tail during her entire long bow!
We had a great snowbike ride. At the end, I asked her to "wave to me", and she did. I know that it's not the best photo that I've ever taken but I love it anyway because it expresses how much fun Shya and I are having.
Positive training rocks, especially for a sensitive dog like Shyla. It builds her confidence and our bond.


  1. Hi Y'all!

    Everytime I see her she is more beautiful! I think I'm fallin' in love! I wish my Human would take me out there to meet Shyla, but she says it's too far away. :(

    Sorry Shyla, guess I'm destined to worship you from afar!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  2. I'm waving right back at ya sweet Shyla.

  3. We feel the happiness that is in both of your hearts!

  4. Positive training is the best!

  5. I wonder how you would do with a Siberian ;-) ?

  6. That is a great wave, Bert only raises his paw about shoulder level but it works to the pleasure of the patients at the Hospital.

    I love that Shyla is having so much fun with the training. I am gonna work harder on making it more fun for Bert

  7. What a wave, and rapid fire photos, a great way to capture the action. Cheers from Jean

  8. Isn't it so wonderful to see Shyla growing and learning. Most of all isn't it so wonderful to see her happy?

  9. that shot of her waving is the best!! You two are really becoming a bonded pair. Is there anything more awesome than that??!? I think not :)

  10. Hi Shyla!! We're waving back!
