Today, I got Al back :) and our group went to the Amazing Maize Maze. We split into two groups to see who could do the challenge and get through the maze the fastest. Our team, Team K9, consisted of me and Al, Ellen and Lexie, Liz and Sparkie, Ray and Angel, my mom, and my dad. The other team, who didn't have a name, consisted of Suzette, Ali, her dad, and Rudy, Charlie and his raiser and her daughter. The other team quit early, saying they were giving their dogs a break. Team K9 found the first puzzle piece really fast and after getting 8 out of 12, all of our group quit except me and my dad. Together we found the last 4 puzzle pieces and made it out victoriously in a total of 2 hours. Mind, it would have gone much faster if it had just been me and my dad, but it was still fun when we had the group. And, most importantly, we beat the other group, so...WE WON!!! Go Team K9!!! Afterwards, I took a bunch of great pictures of Al around the place. I'll be posting some of the best in the next few blog postings. All in all, it was a great day, and I'm SO excited to have my baby back! Until next time...

It's time to say goodbye...for the first time

After having Al and Sparkie together for a week, it's time for Al to go to Sparkie's raiser, Liz's house. It's the first time Al has been away from home at all. :( I am very sad about that and though I have Sparkie for another week, I still miss my baby. The picture is one I took when they were playing/fighting. I think it's kind of funny because Sparkie looks like a monster dog with those yellow eyes. They had so much fun playing and had incredibly sweet moments where one would put his head on the others shoulder when they were taking a nap. I can't wait to see Al and get him back on Saturday when we do the maize.
