We have decided we don't want to continue our blog after all, so here is our farewell.
Have a good life everyone!

Dakota again. Mom said I had to choose which toys I wanted to keep. So I chose all of them.

Georgia and I still like Zebra best, and tonight we were fighting over him.

Georgia won, but then we both lost interest.

We're back!

Hello everyone. Dakota here. Georgia and I have been away for a while (okay, over a year), but we're back now. A lot has changed, but we're still the same boof-heads we have always been.

Here I am laying in the sun. I like being hot.

Here's Georgia laying in the hallway, enjoying the cross-breeze. She doesn't like being hot.

Here I am waiting to go on a walk with mom this morning. I decided I'd wait with my new favourite toy, a zebra that my dad bought me.

Mom cleaned out our toy box and put everything on the floor. She told us to pick what we wanted, and the rest would go into storage. Here I am trying to decide which ones I want...

Our Portrait

Jewel Mathieson, a fantastic pet portrait artist here in New Zealand, made this PAWSOME portrait of us from our blog photo.

She's done portraits of lots of pupperoos we know--it's what all the yuppy puppies are having done these days. Have a look at her website and facebook page for more examples of her artwork.!/petportrait

Sandy Point Scarper

Greetings everyone. We went to our first race last weekend, the Sandy Point Scarper in Invercargill.

 We ran a canicross race with mom and dad first. We have our own styles of mentally preparing.

Dakota surveys the competition and makes sure to show her confidence. She's one serious competitor.

Georgia just sits there looking goofy. She doesn't have a clue about what is going on.

It looks like Georgia is head-butting Dakota, but she is just reaching for some yummy "bunny nuggets".

We had a great race. It was a little on the warm side, so we struggled a bit, but we still ran well enough to pull lazy mom and dad fast enough to take first in the women's canicross race and third in the men's.

Right after that race, Dakota and dad competed in a bikejor race. Dak was tired, but she loves to run, so she was able to pull dad to a second place finish. She lost to a very fast pointer, but it was a really close finish. She says if she hadn't just run a race, she'd have won. But she says stuff like that.

We spent the night at a very nice motel that lets good doggies like us stay in the room. Mom and dad got a big room with a spare bed for Georgia and a comfy sofa for Dakota.

The next day was very exciting. It was the first time we ran together as a team. We competed in the two-dog scooter race with dad. Everyone was quite nervous beforehand.

Well, Georgia was more worried than nervous. She had no idea what was going on.

We ran well and took fourth out of sixteen teams. Not bad for a couple of halfskies in our first race together.
Dad said that we ran our little hearts out.

Here's the forest we ran through.

Dakota spent some time getting in touch with her inner husky.

Georgia tried, but she couldn't quite master the Siberian swirl.

Off to Naseby tomorrow for a training run and to get things sorted for our club's race in two weeks.

First Big Race

Hello everyone. We have our first big race coming up this weekend, so mom has spent some time getting our gear in order. Today she washed all our harnesses. They were pretty dirty. And smelly.

And we assisted her in our usual fashion--doing absolutely nothing.

This weekend we are going to compete together for the first time ever doing two-dog scooter with dad. We think we'll do okay, and we hope we'll win a ribbon. Wish us luck!
