Nothing to do with an aussie BUT

This posting has ZERO do to with my little aussie but another one of my "kids" has made me SO proud that I had to share!!! Gitano, a little Andalusian horse at my barn that I've been riding all summer has been selected for the 2010 World Equestrian Games!!!! Gitano will be a member of South Africa's para dressage team with his new rider, who is paralyzed from the waist down. She rides him better than I do! I'm so happy that she found a horse that will give her the confidence (and the moves) to kick butt in Kentucky (and maybe the 2012 Olympics!) and even happier that its my little buddy!

Isn't he handsome :) Watch for him in London 2012!

Camping Recap!!!

Charlie has spent the last... well MONTH being a traveling little puppy! Camping and swimming and chasing everything in sight! He's become quite the swimmer.. now that he's put some weight on he plays in the water the whole time we're at the lake (instead of playing then shivering in a corner!! poor skinny nub!)

Charlie is also growing straight UP! His legs are soo long! My mini aussie is not looking very mini!!

We are also in the midst of packing up my college house to move! Charlie is a theif and steals things out of boxes. Then Beau (the goody 2 shoes) follows him whining! Its too funny!

Enjoy our pictures!

Where did these legs come from?????

Charlie stole all the sticks that Beau found...

Then.... Beau saw a deer! Being "brothers" they argued over which way it went..

Here Mr Deer... Heeeere Mr Deer....!

The Chase Is On!!!!!

ooooh they were so close... then Beau was convinced it went up the tree...
Some hunter he is... haha
Charlie is clearly confused as to why Beau is flying...

Of course every time we went swimming I forgot my camera! And there were some moments I was not willing to move to get my camera! Charlie decided that he enjoys being a snuggly puppy and routinely hops up on the couch or bed next to me with a toy :)

*******I'm SOO excited!*******

He also knows that if he sits in front of me and lifts his paw in the air while giving a me a super sad puppy face look that I can't resist picking him up! Although it always seems to be when he has wet muddy paws :/ oh well I'll take a wet muddy snuggle over none!!

Hope everyone else is enjoying summer as much as Charlie!

Heres one more picture of Beau looking quite goofy..

Long time no see!

We've been quite lazy with our blogging! Charlie has been camping and swimming and traveling ALL over the state! Of course the lack of blogs could be due to the fact that little Charlie chewed through the computer charger!!! gr. So with new charger safely off the floor I thought we'd update quickly! Once I unpack and find the camera cord there will be many pictures and stories!

Oh... and Charlie has finally started snuggling!!! He loves his belly rubbed and I catch him sneaking closer and closer when he naps!
