Trying to photograph our Cairns against the drought stricken dog yard is pretty discouraging. The grass is usually scruffy at best, but at least it’s green. This year, with the desperate water shortage in our area, we couldn’t justify watering. Dirt and dead grass make for a very dreary photo background. 😕

Calypso I feel your pain..drought here also and I decided that I was not going to waste water, and the grass although patchy is slowly making a come back, with two dogs that peed on the yard through last winter with not a lot of snow happening .I love my dogs way more than silly grass.🥰

One consoling thought is that we plan to redo the whole thing, so the dog yard will get moved and expanded and the present dust bowl will be pavers or something. I’d like to think it will happen soon, and the new fencing is here and taking up a lot of our parking. Unfortunately, things happen very slowly in this DIY household.

Blues begone. Elroy has his eyes on you.

In truth, he is just waiting his turn to fail an earthdog test. He doesn't know he failed, though, nor do we care. A good time was had by all.

We always have wondered what to do with the rats that are in the traps but still alive -  hammer? baseball bat? drowning?  After 2 hours listening to Pepper go insane over the bouncing rat in the trap I told my husband to just let Pepper take care of it....yep, it took her all of 2 seconds of VIOLENT shaking her head to put that poor rat out of its misery!!!  She did the job and quickly dropped the dead rat.   My husband asked me to check the rat because he couldn't believe how fast Pepper took care of it.  She is such a true rat dog!!!  We should have let her do this years ago!!!!

She used to do earth dog and LOVED it!!!!  Unfortunately she also loved the judges and would go say hi and sniff around and then get to business!!! Time was not on her side!  She would wind herself up in the car on the way especially once she could smell the fields...

A photo to celebrate a high-performance Cairn.

At the CRCTC test on Saturday afternoon legendary Cairn and prodigious earthdog Doogie earned his EE20, a breed — and probably sport — record.

To achieve ONE EE (endurance earthdog) a dog has to qualify (pass) in BOTH Master and Senior class in the same test, five different times. That means  to achieve an EE20 Doogie double-qualified at 100 tests!  Ryan said that Doogie's pass rate was about 98%, so he failed to qualify in one or the other classes only about one in fifty times. Indeed on Saturday morning he failed Master; in the afternoon set of tests he was back to perfection. (Ryan probably made him reread the rule book at lunch and write "I will not dash straight to the dens" one hundred times.)

Truly a dog who loves to work, and a handler who loves to train and work with him. He has so many other titles I can't even begin to list them all. He always seems to be having an absolute blast doing whatever he is doing. Doogie is not just a phenomenon he is simply a great dog all-around and a Cairn ambassador for looks, brains, and performance. Congrats Doogie (and his handler, Ryan of course :P)
