January is FLYING..what I've been up to lately.

Me eyes..... on Monday...just waiting for my turn.Mom and I working obedience and listening to our coach, Barbara at the Oakland Dog Training Club.
Barbara L.H....telling it like it is....to improve the bit of training mom and I are working on...
Barbara L.H. telling me I'm a good girl....mom giving the 'eeeeeee' face... And, Sammie & Avalon's mom at the camera.
Here we go..heeling around the room... I'm watchin' ya mom :)
And....the Friday before....we met up with Avalon and Shasta, along with their big sis's, Sammie and Shanti for some parkie obedience practice! Always a good time. The puppers, Shasta, Avalon and me...practicing our sit & stay for one minute.
Our long downs...
I was kind of snoozling through the down....
Rewind to the weekend before, when we got to do walkies with dad. Yay!
Watching the sunset from the Las Gallinas levies...a nice flat, late day walkie. These are treated water ponds, on land just next to our fave park, McInnis...a great place for leashed walkies, as well as, bird and otter watching!
The bank of solar panels is hidden at the far end. We made a point to check these out. Quite a lot of them...and they power this entire treatment plant and have extra energy to give back!
Rewind to just this past Sunday...a me and mom hike. We LOVE these :)
Up up up....mom's favorite. And, a new fireroad for us to explore.
Up we go...into more Open Space areas..not a major traffic trail, but for the few that wanted a great workout, this was pristine.
Upper views of Mt. Tamalpais.... We met some dedicated hiker pals...Angel, on the right is 15 yo!
Happy to tag along with mom...we kept our pace...a new trail, new smells...
Of course I needed a stikie to hike with! This one was just the right size :)
Did I say "up we go"...yes, I meant it....and this was on the way back...what?!
Finally.....down we went...onward back to our starting point. Lovely green, quiet and peaceful. Beautiful skies and calm winds. Ahhhhhhh.... Hope you have a nice week my friends!


  1. Oh...what a fabulous way to start my day...taking these lovely journeys with you and your family, dear Sierra Rose! I used to see Mt. Tam outside my bedroom window when I lived in Tiburon oh so long ago... I love the picture of the three of you friends practicing sitting!!! What a good girl you are!!
