Holly and John invited the puppies and I out to Kingman, AZ, for a weekend of playtime in the desert. We also got Miss Luna onto birds for the first time to see what she would do. She LOVED it! Just a few photos below from our quick weekend trip:
[Note – all photos were taken with my iPhone since I neglected to charge my real camera and it died before I could use it.]
The drive out. Both puppies slept the WHOLE WAY! 5+ hours.
Just me, myself, and I on the road. And a lot of static on the radio. Bliss.
Friday evening: I rolled onto the ranch in the late afternoon, and we had just a few minutes to play with the dogs before it got dark.

Sunset on the ranch. Beautiful, eh?

Saturday morning: We drove out to Hubby Grounds Ranch (the site of the recent 2014 WCA Western Classic) to play with some more birds:

We all had an awesome weekend.
Also, it’s never too late to get your dog started in the field. Holler if you’d like to join us sometime.
Lastly, thank you Holly and John for hosting us!!!
