First Time Effort
Originally uploaded by egwenna.
Isaac had his birthday party Saturday... it looked like it was going to be awful and rainy, so I booked an animal show and had a ball python, iguana, tarantula and other critters brought to the house, and then it was gorgeous so we all went swimming too. He gathered donations for the animal shelter dogs instead of presents, so we dropped those off at the shelter this morning but to my horror I'd left my camera sitting at home and my cell phone (which has a good camera) was dead. Thankfully, mom had her blackberry, but it just wasn't the same, and Isaac had wanted to pose with Dexter and our foster, but he was so distracted by them, he was never looking at the camera and smiling.

Not our finest photo moment, but has been a great weekend.

Dexter and I did our very first 'real' obstacle course at the town dog show and took 4th place. He didn't fall off the bridge (or jump into the pool) and we didn't knock anything over, so I was happy. Next year I bring the flexi lead and hopfully he'll follow directions instead of needing to follow a tennis ball, but he didn't try to take off in odd directions. And he was at least as well behaved as any other dog there, and he has better tricks, so next year we'll enter more categories!¤t=video-2011-09-11-16-32-20.mp4

What a good doggie! He looks very pleased with himself.

Happy Birthday, Isaac! Glad it was a good one. :)

Pooch had fun and he was so well behaved.

Isaac is trying to decide if he wants to repeat his donation drive next year. I'm sending his picture to both the local papers.. hopefully it'll end up in at least one of them and I think he'll be extremely excited by that. :)

Yeah, he was having fun. Watching the video, I thought it was funny how he just bounces along. Just wish I'd kept the ball away from him in the maze... the only thing slowing us down was me! :)
