Hi

This is my official "Championship Portrait" - gorgeous isn't it?

Sorry, I am not available to be purchased or to be bred (well, eventually hopefully I will have pups, but right now I am too busy doing other stuff). Please do not harass my mum with inquiries - else she may just take my picture off again and I would hate that to happen ... I know, it's terribly hard to resist me, you'll just have to be strong


Sending kisses

Love

Agility World Champs - part 3

Posted by Lollie on Friday, September 25, 2009,
On Monday morning the humans had breakfast - nobody asked me if I wanted any ... but at least we were allowed to come with mum to the breakfast room. Yep, the Austrians are very polite to their dogs. We were allowed to go almost everywhere with mum, even if some places required some very odd arrangements (more about that later). After breakfast we all went shopping. Everything was just around the corner, so we all walked and had a good time checking out the neighborhood. Although us dogs were...

Agility World Champs - part 2

Of course we are in fact already BACK home again, but in order to give you a good idea of how our trip went, I will just pretend that we are still traveling.
We arrived safely, but very early in the morning in Frankfurt. They were really careful when they off loaded us and we were taken to the "Fragile cargo" section - hmmm - not quite the first class counter, I must say, but at least mum and all the other humans were already there to greet us. Onto the trolley and off to custom...

Our trip to the Agility World Championships - part 1

Posted by Lollie on Sunday, September 13, 2009,

Hi

I know it has been much too long, but in all honesty you cannot even start to imagine how busy our lives have been in recent weeks. It honestly does not take a rocket scientist to work out that mum had something special planned for us. And today it was here – the day we left to go to the Agility World Championships. Oh boy! What excitement.  That this is all very special was not hard to guess. Mum was so nervous for the last 2 days like I don’t think I have ever seen her.

Really she...

Star Struck

I don't really like to brag about other people, but today is an exception. You probably know by now what a famous mum I have - I mean my *real* mum Quincy. She is a movie star and *everyone* knows her. It is a bit of a pain going out with her, since people stop and want to chat to my human mum about Quincy all the time. It's "oh" and "ah" and all these silly cooing noises humans make ... I don't really mind the noises, but couldn't they make them to *ME*? So yes, going out with Quincy is not one of my favorite past times. However, today I am really proud of her. She did another TV commercial recently, and it has just been voted: "The hottest ad of the week on Cape Talk’s Adfeature show" and Quincy is the star of the ad - she doesn't just have a little role - she really is the star!

Just in case you don't know Cape Talk is a big deal radio station here in South Africa - I mean really *BIG DEAL* (well, you don't expect us to get excited about a mention on a *little* radio station do you?).

So we are all celebrating. Us dogs got a super-duper bone each and mum is having a glass of bubbly (have you ever put your nose into a glass of that stuff? - Yikes - I would suggest you don't even try! It is awful. I can not understand what mum does with it).

I have stuck the important piece of the podcast here for you to listen to ... Oh yes, we even had a podcast of the announcement, I *told* you it was a big deal.

We are off to another show tomorrow, can't wait, it has been a bit boring here lately.

Great weekend to all

Love you

Lollie

What a Weekend ...

We had such a great weekend - well *I* had. Mum is now exhausted, and Chippy, well Chippy didn't do so well, but we knew that all along that I would be the star of this family.

We went to an Agility competition on Friday - mum says it was just a *small* competition, but hey, everything counts - right?

I just blew everyone away - 1-2-3 just like that, I won all 3 of the competitions mum and I entered. Mum says she is very pleased with me. I think she actually did a pretty good job herself this time round (no funny manouvers that we collided). Especially the Dog Jumping (remember, that is the one where you need to go clear in the first round and then you go to the Jump-Off). I beat Ricki by 1,5 seconds! Mum says Ricki is the best "non-large" dog in South Africa at the moment ... I beg your pardon? WHO is the Best if I just beat him????

Mum says we still need to work on our weave poles, but I have no idea what she is complaining about. 

Chips, well he had a few steering problems and was a bit off ... I think maybe I will have a chat to him.

Allez also did quite well and won one class and was second in the other.

 

And then on Saturday we went to do a Freestyle demo - yes me too :-). Oh, I was sooooo cool on my saddle - of course the silly kids wanted to know where the horse was ... they have no imagination - non ...

Everyone thought Chippy in his pram was great ... I think the saddle is better, but I suppose the pram is also cute. Mum and Allez practised their new routine and Allez did really well - wow, I want to be like her one day.

And today, well today mum said the weather was miserable (hey, it was great, all overcast with a bit of rain, not too hot, I love this weather, but humans always complain about the weather have you noticed that?). Anyway, mum thought it was "stay at home" weather. There wasn't much to do - supervise all the dogs a bit, check the property with dad, but it was really a little boring. Just nice that everyone was together I suppose.

We are going to have a really busy month coming up. I will try and keep updating you as often as I can.

 

Love you XXXX

 Hi - May I introduce myself?


My name is "Funny Waldi"

About Me


Lollie Hi I am Lollie, a grey Pyrenean Sheepdog. I was born on 31. August 2006. I live with my brother, our mum and another 5 dogs on a farm in Africa. Our "human mum" believes we all need a job, and I fully agree. I am always busy bossing everyone around - I don't think "Mum" has that in mind when she talks about a "job" though. Her idea of a job is to play Agility, which I like, but she is terribly slow, and I have to keep reminding her to run faster. I bark and bark and bark, and sometimes she gets the message - it is very hard to train humans .... She also likes to dance with me - she calls it freestyle, but what do you call it when you move to music? I call it "dancing". Anyway, let her call it what she likes. We also need to do Obedience stuff. I love the heelwork part, but then she keeps throwing things away which she expects me to fetch for her - who does she think I am? Anyway, Chippy (that is my brother) brings everything back, so let him fetch it. Well, everyday life is busy when you live on a farm. In the mornings Chippy and I go out with our human dad ... sigh ... that is another case of "difficult training object". He is soooo slow. I have actually given up trying to make him run at all. Usually I just check that everything is in order and then I go back to the house again, it is just too boring standing around with dad. Later on Wedwo, that is mum's horse, comes down to the paddock - yep, he definitely needs to be exercised and told where to go and graze. The cheeky thing is starting to ignore me now, so I have to hang from his tail ... Mum says she will try to get a picture (don't get me started on pictures though ....) well, that is all about me right now. If you are interested in following my daily blog ... oops mum says it won't be daily ... :-( come back and visit. Yours Lollie
