I found out recently that the advice, "Start small and work your way up.", does not apply to hunting rabbits.  I was very proud of my effort, but apparently this is an area where one is expected to start big, not catch little bunnies.  So sorry, I didn't know.

Sea Birds

After this week's beach experience, I must report that sea birds do not necessarily behave the same way as other "normal" birds.  I found this one to be loud, aggressive, too ready to use his
very sharp beak, and --  he wanted to chase me instead of  letting me do the chasing.
Normally I love to be chased, but the squawking was a bit annoying. 
It appeared he was just a baby with a flying issue.  Not a good outlook for him, so we
gave him his space with good wishes and no hard feelings.

My Work Write-up

A story on my work as a County geese dog appeared in the recent issue of the Conestoga Viszla Club News.
Read about my April job at, Newsletter, 2nd quarter, page 20.  My picture was in the Washington Post last year too.  I wonder if I should start carrying ink to give out my paw print?!

My human went out onto the second story window roof  to help the roofers who were working at our house yesterday.
I had my second hind foot on the sill completing my exit when everyone got very excited. 
Don't know why since I follow my human every where, am agility trained, and part goat-dog. 
But my effort to help as "wroofer" was cut short and I was shuffled back inside. 
The cat's question, "Is it loyalty or
My wroofing location
or dullness?"  She no doubt expected me to request the question be repeated.
