At Her New Home

Mesquite Christmas 2017_0379

Many of you remember that Mesquite was fortunate to find a fabulous golden-year-placement. She is soaking up the experience inside and out. There are the walks as well as field work where she loves pointing rabbits. She is a bit reluctant to leave sight of Lyle in search of the elusive pheasant, but she does love birds as well.

This year she sits Christmas Tree poised as asked while Lyle snaps a photo. What a good girl. As you can tell, she is much loved and well cared for too! Her eyes speak volumes. OK—I wear the scarf and sit by the tree. Now, can we do something else–snuggle, go for a run, or play a game?

We cannot thank Mesquite’s family enough for all they have done and are doing for this delightful retired OwyheeStar girl. It means the world to us. I guess this is what you call a win-win situation. She went to work at her new position–filling a big hole left in a Washington family’s heart. Good job Mesquite!

Older Girl Learning New TricksDSC_0679

Here are a few pictures of Mesquite out in the field today, south of Prosser in the Horse Heaven Hills.  I have been waiting to be sure the snakes are in for the winter.

She is having a good time.  She loves to get out.

Everything is going well. She eats good. Just to be sure, she reminds me when it is time to eat! We both love her dearly and are very happy with her.  She has adjusted
very well.  I think she has trained us.
I still don’t have her dialed in on hunting pheasants yet, butshe is coming
along.  I have been using pheasant wings, which I hide in the tall grass and
weeds.  She has no trouble finding them at all.  I hide them and tell her to
find the pheasant, and that light the burner and she is off.  I can’t figure
out how to get her to range out from me farther.  She has trouble with a
running bird when she gets the scent she thinks the bird is right there,
but of course, the bird has moved on.  She has trouble telling fresh scent from an old
scent.  That may be a drawback of using old wings.  She will figure it out
one of these days.  Mesquite loves to go hunting.  I get a kick out of her,
when I go somewhere and don’t take her when I get home, she goes around and
smells the tires on my Tahoe.  I guess she is checking to be sure I haven’t
been out hunting.  She is sharp as a tac.  She will click one of these days.
A big problem is there aren’t enough birds around.

Cliff says to keep working on it. You’ll get it. It is amazing how well you are doing in a very short period of time. Her lineage is well known for their ability to hunt. Thanks for loving her so much!

Spooky Spoiled

     ~Nonetheless, Much-Loved

Scartozzi's Alli-2Thought you might enjoy to see how my girl Alli is doing! She is a love bug, but boy is she afraid of everything! As a pup I exposed her to everything and she is still afraid of every loud sound, the lawn mower, and gun shots (which we have a lot of) just to name a couple. She is terrified of getting her nails clipped even though that is also something I worked on with her as a pup. She is just a dog with her very own ways. She loves me to no end and her whole butt wages when I am near. She shares my pillow with me and we cuddle when she is scared. She loves my kids and gives them lots of kisses.
She has been a huge part of our family and I am so blessed you’ve allowed us to have this sweet girl!

There are many ways to end up with issues–especially loud noise sensitivity. We humans and I am not saying Ashley did or didn’t do this, tend to do the very thing that ingrains the fear rather than alleviates it. It is the most natural response in most cases. Well, nuff said. (Yes, I know it is more correctly enough said). Maybe it will be a topic of discussion one day soon. We have spoken about it before.

Thank you, Ashley, for loving this sweet girl and sharing with us.

I have some new pictures of Raein, and I wanted to share them with you!IMG_20130302_00195544

Thought you could use some nice pics of her. Haha she is still her normal self. Hasn’t changed much since the last time I emailed you. 🙂

IMG_20130302_0019562Today, she saw a horse for the first time. 🙂 she’s a little intimated by them. Its the size of horses. IMG_20130302_00133850She’s never seen anything bigger then a very large dog. Ha but she did ok.

IMG_20130302_00195529These pictures I am sending you, were taken by my sister. She is becoming an amateur photographer. 🙂 Raein was happy to accommodate her and her camera.IMG_20130303_0084020

When I came to you, I just wanted a running companion and I certainly got one-a good one too. 😉IMG_20130303_0083947

I wanted to share these photos of Raein and my sister’s dog Sarah, the St. Bernard too! 🙂IMG_20130303_0083931 I hope you love them, and that you have a great day, Shelli

PS: Thank you for all you do. 🙂

Raein at 2 Years

Decided to write a little note about Raein, since she’s 2. She is great. Just great. 🙂 She trains with me on our long runs (the most is almost 14 miles). 424458_10200290222239901_1892501887_n

She is a trooper.

This pastweek, we haven’t ran. 😦 due to icy pathways. We have snow now, in the Spokane, WA area.

Yummy Snow

She loves the snow and seems she could eat it all day. Lol I am sending you some pictures of her and her buddy, Riley.IMG-20130119-01699
