Hello!

I guess I haven't been blogging lately.  I've been working a lot and have been in a bit of an agility funk.  It happens a lot to me this time of year, I think it's the weather or the short days.  Or a combination of both.  The thought of training in a constructive manner makes me want to curl up in bed and not get up.  The only thing that is motivating me right now is the thought of eating and sleeping. 

But having said that I had one of my best christmases (is that a word?) in a few years.  My sister and nephews came to visit and we had a great time. 

On Christmas Eve my sister made me Pierogie and Shishkabobs (aka shit on a stick), some traditional Fosty dishes.





















The nephews are picky eaters. They had Pierogie innards and raw spinach.  On a Christmas plate!

The dogs got ground beef with some pasta, spinach and a dollop of sour cream. 
I forced my family to go for a walk at Coyote Hills on Christmas Day.  We got lucky and missed the rain, but it was really really windy.  My sister regretted wearing a hat :)






And then we just relaxed at home.  After the first meeting where Rampage hid from the strange alien beings, all of the kids and dogs got along great.  My living room isn't usually that messy.  And there usually aren't kids in it.


We went to Alcatraz and saw Domo (played by my nephew, Jake) attack my nephew David.  I love this photo :)
Jake gave Apollo some fashion advice.




And Rampage gave Jake some modeling advice.

"Tilt your head like this, Jake.  The girls go wild for it!"



David and Icon went all Goth on us.

The day my family left it was very windy.  My neighbors fence blew down.  That's actually my front yard.  Does that mean it's my fence too?  I hope I don't have to pay for it....


I haven't done much agility lately, but I got out with a friend this week to make sure we got some contacts in.  It was fun but I don't feel prepared for our New Years trial starting tomorrow!
