Family Pictures ... The Reincarnation of an August Shot

It was requested that I re-do the family portrait taken in August. The 'baby' is huge now in comparison to the girls, so it was time for a re-shoot.
In our first image, we have the kids cooperating.
Though Miss Jesse Dog refuses to smile...

Left to right - Cash, Jesse, Sophie
In our next image, we have Miss Jesse Dog showing her true emotions toward her canine house mates...
"I can't stand these two beside me... One day, I will get them..."
And in our final image, we have Mr. Cash attempting to show Miss Jesse Dog his love.
If she strained her neck much farther away from his kisses, I think her head might fall off!

Tug of war...

Sophie and Cash played tug of war in the snow...


Actually, Cash was playing, Sophie was all business...


Too bad for Sophie - Cash out weighs her by almost 20#s!

Cash says "Mine! Mine! Mine!"

Training with snow flurries...

OK - maybe it was barely snowing, but I was still out there training Cash and 'weather proofing' Sophie. It wasn't too cold so it was fun to be out today. Cash did a bit of jump work and weaves entries, while Sophie and I focused on weaves. Enjoy the videos...

Here we have Cash in the horse shoe grid. He is getting so big that he took some of the jumps as doubles...not exactly the point of this exercise! 5 Jumps, set at 8" and at about a 45 degree angle to one another. Then we moved on to some entry training with the poles...

And for Miss Sophie Dog it was all about weaves. First, the send through 12 poles...

And the soft side angle work that we need so desperately...

And the hard side entries that come so naturally...

a little more snow...

It appears that our part of Jersey will remain snow-free this year. Each time the weather-man calls for snow, we get a dusting at most. Not very exciting for me, as all I think of when I hear the word snow is ... SNOW DAY!!! However, the dusting made the kids happy and inspired me to go outside, freeze my right hand off and take a few pictures of the kids. Enjoy...

Mr. Cash is really not THAT much bigger than the girls. The sidewalk slopes, and Jesse is at the lowest point.

He is, however, growing up to be soooo handsome!

Sophie, hiding from the brother... She's not that fond of him when he is off leash and out doors. She will stay better than the other two though!
