Some photos from Nina Sage taken last weekend.
Joe Camp, agility photographer supreme, was at the CAT trial this weekend and was kind enough to take a few photos of Rush. He’s now almost ten months, taller than Dancer by a smidge, and a hard-driving well-coordinated boy. Here he is, chasing his ball:
Taken on the shore of the Columbia River, just east of the Sandy River.
I spent the morning grooming all three dogs. The results:
When Rush is really tired, he sleeps on his belly with his legs stretched out behind him. It’s taken me a while to get a picture of this, because as soon as he wakes up he goes into a more common curl on his side. Jay caught him just as he was waking up.
This is my new puppy, Rush. His full name is Alchmys Absolut Pleasure. He was the pink-collar boy in the litter. Vikki talks about him here: From Russia with Love.
and you can see how cute he is here:
It’s been a very wet spring, and it snowed a lot in the Cascades, and the Columbia River (and its tributaries) were at flood stage (like so many rivers around the country) for much of May and June. But finally the water is receding.
In this picture, you can see what the Convergence Trail looked like on June 1st, 2011 and what it looked like June 30th. I’ll note that normally the Convergence Trail is not under water at all!
