Full frontal collies

I know there are other dogs who love laying on their backs, but it is definitely a collie pose. Mostly because they have double coats, they do this to be cooler, but I think it's also a comfortable position. Personally, I prefer sleeping on my back. I was reading the Sunday paper this morning and glanced into the hallway and saw this:
 Luckily I was able to get the picture before he moved.

Yesterday I took Woodson to the No-Kill Walk for Animals. Held at the International Bazarre at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, it was well-attended. We had steady traffic stopping at the MWCR booth, seeing regulars and new people. Robin brought her foster, Prince, who was so friendly and vocal, he really did his job to attract people to the booth! I got a chance to walk around and visit other booths, seeing some familiar ones, but I saw a lot of rescues I'd never heard of before. I love that there are so many working to help homeless pets. I initially wanted to bring Cody, but they required the animals be neutered, and that is happening tomorrow!

Cody ate his dog food yesterday!

Cody has found his voice and is now barking at noises. Not a lot but he definitely alerts to things, making him a good watchdog. He continues to do well on a leash. Terry bought him a collar and matching leash from the booth next to us. It's a regular collar and is working well. He hasn't tried to slip out of it.

This afternoon, I'm heading to the Collie Flower Party with Woodson. A member organized this, to have collies visit the Catholic Eldercare facility in NE Minneapolis. Looking forward to seeing how Woodson is in this kind of setting. I want to get him certified as a therapy dog. My plan for the summer is to get out each day and work on his obedience for 10-15 minutes a day, even if it's in the dark!

A heads up to readers of this blog. I'm considering moving it over to Wordpress. I'm working on the MWCR blog on that platform and it's a bit more user friendly than this one. I will be working on transferring this over as soon as I get things set up, so it won't be happening anytime soon, but will definitely happen.
