I wagging tail and smiling dog greeted me at the door when I got home from school; Mini was very happy to see me.  She was left out during the day to sleep on the comfy couch.  Trixie, Kahlua, Baker, SoBe, and Mini all snuggled up with each other on the couches while I did my homework this evening.  Tim and I took Mini, SoBe, Mighty, Kane, and Beret out to the field to romp and do some steady work.  The puppies are starting to open up in the field and quarter on their own; I would not have been the least bit surprised if they would of flushed a rooster.  I am getting excited to run the last field trial of the season this weekend; I might be able to run some in Texas when I have a break from school but, until then, this is going to be it.  I don’t have the luxury of being able to travel everywhere I want this year due to nursing school; I have to say I am a little bummed out but, it is only for a year….that is the good news!
