Welcome!! This is a journal about my dogs and what we do.
All my dogs have their own websites that you can see by clicking their photo in the sidebar. Jake's site is the most active right now with new posts.
This site is a work in progress and has become a source of information. When asked a question I would write a post to answer
it which led to a post to summarize the questions. Check the sidebar for this type of information.

Enjoy the visit and feel free to email me at

Jake REALLY likes to help!

I’ve had this war with grapevines that were strangling the trees in the woods and buckthorn trees which are considered an invasive species of trees by the DNR.  So one day when I’m digging and pulling roots, Jake starts digging with me and then… actually starts pulling the roots out… 

hmmm….maybe I can put this on cue….  Well that was probably the easiest thing I ever taught him!  He knew what “dig” meant and the new word was “pull”.




 
So here he is sitting next to the largest root he pulled out today and the video clip, which I took as I was working with him really tells the story!
