A Fall Morning With Isla

Hi Don,

 What a beautiful morning it was today. Here’s Isla taking a break. No retrieving work today, just a lovely walk through a local provincial park on a crisp fall day. She’s doing so well I don’t want to overdo it!

Isla's first time in the ring

Hi Don,


Isla and I had a lot of fun at the Cobequid Dog Club confirmation. A new experience for both of us, especially since we spend nearly all of our training/fun time in the bush or on the lakes in the Bowater Mersey area.

Isla did her best, despite my complete lack of understanding regarding the confirmation ring. Definitely brought a lot of humor to the proceedings. The point was to expose Isla to something completely different and she handled herself quite well (reasonably calm while ring-side for 30+ minutes) and toward the end of the night SHE figured out how to “trot” in the ring (good thing as I was clueless). Attended (without Isla) the Rally and Obedience event today and really liked what I saw in terms of the course and training that would be involved in some of the more advanced classes. Pretty cool.

The most experiences the better!

Brandy Update

Attached is a recent picture of Brandy (just taken this evening) that I thought you might like to see.  She's a nice lookin' dog and continues to keep my Dad on his toes - she's still pretty busy and has what seems like an endless amount of energy! lol  PS:  I think she'd make a real good tracking dog cause her nose is somethin' else!!!!!

Ilsa Flying

Hi Don,

Here’s a nice clear photo of Isla launching for a water retrieve. It’s a good thing she only had a 4’ run at it before launching off the rock into the lake… any more and she confuse herself and think she was a bird! HA!




Isla Cleared For Take Off

Hello from the Thompson’s!

Hi Don,

Not sure if you remember us but we fell behind in sending pictures! We are loving every minute with our Maggie girl and had a new addition to our family last November- a baby girl named Isabelle. Her first words were “good girl” to the dog ;). Here are a few pictures...
