This and That

 A deer was a little too helpful and pulled down a branch heavily laden with apples.
Thunder is helping, how much, I'm not sure.
 Absolutely, "the" best fly catcher! 
Great idea Daphne.
A visitor in the middle of the day.
He ate more cherry tree leaves. Ugh!
Some of the 4H kids did the pre-rodeo show at the Box-Elder County Fair.
Once again, they had a blast.
Henry and Thunder shocking us.
 We still find it hard to believe that they can be this close to 
each other without Henry spoiling the moment.
 Good job Henry!
 Daphne picked up the watering can to water plants and found it extremely heavy.
It was filled....
 Lightning is such a pretty kitty.

Obedience, Agility and Showmanship Trials

 We can rarely get Henry to listen to any of our commands but get him in the ring for 4H and he does listen to Victoria....especially if he gets a time out.
 He is a super fast runner when it comes to the tunnels, 
the A Frame,

and the teeter-totter. 
We think he loves the attention and just the plain fun of running through the course.
Though he is known for getting out of his collar. This time he did it three times.
 He loves the treats too.
Victoria does an amazing job with him.
He ran the fastest course of 38 seconds.
Remy is the 4H mascot. He runs agility professionally and can do the course in 15 sec. He is amazing and Rachel has trained him so well.
 In between trials the kids played games using the agility equipment.
 Even Jill's husband, Mr. Romo from Romo's Mediterranean Grill got in on the game.
 All the kids had a blast together. Every moment they had they played games or walked around the fair together.
Little visitors in the canal behind our area.
 The canal made a perfect place to wash out the tunnel after one of the dogs peed in it.
Everytime that happens, Henry will absolutely not enter that tunnel. 
So we washed it out immediately. It did the trick.
 4H kids love their animals. I came across this little girl taking a nap with her pig.
 4H dogs and kids Rule!

Cache County Fair

 Victoria's 4H Dog group had an awesome three days at the fair this year.
Jill and Rachel, the leaders are some of the most wonderful people we have ever met.
Victoria entered Henry in Obedience, Showmanship and Agility Trials and did very well, especially on the second day when I gave Henry a huge time-out. I took him aside and made him submit. He had to lay all the way on the ground for almost 5 minutes. It was time for him to stop barking at Cocoa every time she looked at him. After that, he ran his quickest agility time and listened to Victoria's commands. We are thinking that I should have given him that time out earlier.
