Kirby has dabbled in rally and agility with pretty good results. He's very smart and picks up quickly. He enjoys agility which he can do pretty fast but he's not fast enough to seriously compete.
Swimming is where he excells. He absolutely loves the water, spending every second he can in the water. He swims, jumps, and dives with full abandonment. Sadly it's not something he can compete in simply because there aren't any avenues open to him where we live. However, once a year, he gets to play and compe... read more »
We are so excited because today is the 2nd Annual Dog Paddle event sponsored by the Oktibbeha County Humane Society. Kirby loves to swim at the lake every chance he gets but this is the one and only time he gets to swim in a real pool with other dogs. He had a blast last year and even won the Best Doggie Paddle Award - probably because he literally spent the entire time jumping into the pool and swimming!
Kirby will not fetch EXCEPT when we toss one of his toys into the water at the lake. Actually h... read more »

A photo of the Pub Hill Farm homestead area, that is all fencedoff and available for dog romps. Knightley adored it.Well, Knightley, hubby and I got our weekend away on the coast. It was a beautiful place to stay, very close to Narooma, and I highly recommend it for anyone from Canberra, Sydney or Melbourne. It's a BB called Pub Hill Farm, and is amazingly dog friendly. They have five border collies, one 11 week old puppy, and a mix of sweet gentle older dogs and still vig... read more »
Kirby has full access to the house except when I have to go to work five days each week. For his safety he is confined to his playroom/my office. This room contains my desk, a work table and bookcase. It also contains toys, one dog bed, two dog mats, the kennel used when he was a puppy, a small water fountain, and a radio I turn on when I leave.
Kirby and I have a routine we follow every morning which he easily adapted to from the start. When it's time for me to leave, I grab some of his kibble in the ... read more »

I have a tiny bathroom. It measures 5 wide (I can easily touch both side walls at the same time) and 7 from the door to the back wall (with the back 30 of that being occupied by the bathtub/shower). Like I said, its a small bathroom.
When we moved into this house 4 years ago, I thought it would be so bad having a small bathroom, as long as I could figure out a way to work in enough storage space. So, in addition to the built-in cabinet under the sink, I brought in another small cabinet and shelf, sta... read more »
Eco-preneur Danny Williams. There seems to be a lot of confusion about eco-friendly fuels, why do you think that is? That is simple, A LACK OF CORRECT INFORMATION! There seems to be a lot of information out there, but not much of it is created from credible sources or actual real-life applications. It’s more heresy or “My mate said.” Is there a simple explanation that the public can easily grasp? The term eco-friendly fuel is probably the first problem, let’s talk about renewable fuels, this is what... read more »

Walking along Royal Street in the French Quarter Kirby's nose began twitching from the new aromas wafting through the air. Across the street was a lovely little house with a sign that simply begged us to come over. NOLA Dogs Treats Boutique fills the left side of this quaint housewhile the right side is home to an art gallery.
Walking through the door we discovered a high end boutique filled with toys, apparel, gifts and freshly baked artisan type gourmet dog treats. Some of the shops in the French Q... read more »
