Happy New Year.

I was in Mexico for New Years, Battier stayed at a puppy sitters and had a great time with a COC CCI puppy. 

Battier a little tired from hanging out with COC Peggy over New Years. 

Monday - Back to work! Battier is great in the office, she just sleeps or chews on a bone. Sometimes we get to play with her toys and she likes that. 

Tennis court play time! 

Great Grandma Shawn was even feeling playful. 

Battier goes to physical therapy with me. She does great! There is a lot of equipment in the office and this week there were a lot people. Battier is so good and just takes it all in. 

Hanging out while I get an ultrasound and stem treatment. 

Cuddles! She is my cuddliest puppy. 

We walked at Ancil Hoffman Park today. Checking out the golfer here. 

The golf course is beautiful! 

The weather was perfect today...mid 60's in January.

Christmas Eve

We're back at our house for Christmas after staying at a friends and dog sitting Ella and Mischa. The girls are joining us for Christmas Eve since their Mom doesn't come home until tomorrow. 

Good thing they all get along! They're using Mischa as a pillow in the back of the car. 

Ella enjoying the couch...Mischa is under the blanket. They're both snoring.

Hanging out with friends!

This week we're going to stay at our friends's going to be fun to hang out with Ella and Mischa :) 

All of the dogs taking naps...Shawn and Battier are on the dog lounge chair. 

Life is great! 

Battier enjoys the large basket of toys at our friends house. She has a few favorites. 
Mischa likes to sleep under the covers. 
Ella taking her spot on the couch. 

Battier's favorite toy...the rooster! 

Season of giving!

It's such a fun time of year! Every year we ring the bell for the Salvation Army at the Arden Fair Mall. Battier and Shawn were dresses up and brought in a lot of donations! 

Shawn can even ring the bell! 

It was such a great day! 

After the Salvation Army event we went to our friend Jason Thompson's Holiday giveaway! He chose 100 kids in the community and gave each $100 to spend at Walmart. It was an awesome event and we were happy to help out with it! 
Waiting for JT to arrive. There was a Drumline band from Grant High School, they were great!! At first Battier wasn't so sure about it, but they were very loud and pretty close to us. After a few minutes she fell asleep and was fine with the sounds. 
Battier and Shawn with our friend Kayte...they're favorite person in the world :) 
Since I was working the event and taking pictures we thought it would be better if the girls went home with Kayte. Check out how Shawn fell asleep. 
Much deserved snuggles after a busy day! 

CCI friends Christmas party!

We had a great time last night with CCI friends at a Christmas party! There were 10 CCI dogs and 1 Pug. Battier was awesome! She held her downs when the dogs were all in a command and played nicely when they were playing. 

Good dogs!! Reisig (Retired Skilled Companion) Alohi, Elsie, Battier, Jane, Shawn, Prima, Azuki, Sabina (Retired Breeder) and Summerlee (Facility Dog).

Puppy Class

We stopped at Pet Food Express before puppy class. They have a great program going on! If you donate $15 worth of toys then they give you a free bath. Battier needed a bath because she didn't get one after leaving the CCI spa. When CCI called on Tuesday and said she was ready they said she could come home, but she wouldn't get a bath because that's the day that they check in all the new puppies. I told them that was fine and to send her home. 

Pet Food Express has a great set up! 

All clean!

Open puppy class at the Galleria mall! People LOVED seeing all the puppies. They did very well and were very cute. 

TOP: Azuki, Prima, Battier, Mingo, Elsie 
BOTTOM: Dawn, Pippa, Kathy, Cameo, Jinx and Ralene.

We worked on UP with a stay. Battier is very solid on this command. 

We switched puppies in class. Battier is in the very back of this picture looking at her handler. 

Such a cute girl!
