Happy Birth "I" sibs

Hey its me Irish. Can you believe it???? WE ARE ONE YEAR OLD TODAY. Seems like just yesterday we were all hanging out by the Clifford Slide and lining up for our Christmas pictures. Now here we are scattered all across the country. But I wanted to make sure that all of you knew that I was thinking of you on your birthday (hey's its the same as mine).
Do your humans make you wear party hats for pictures? Can you tell that I am not pleased with this hat? I am sending evil thoughts through my eyes to the person behind the cameraPOOF, see it worked. Here I am in a perfectly sane and mature pose in front of the banner without the silly hat. So sibs, keep that in mind. If you don't want to do something, stare at the human with your best evil eyes that you can and you won't have to do it.

OMG! Shocking news (did I say shocking? cuz I really meant SAD!!! news)

We got THE LETTER yesterday - totally unexpected, totally shocked and totally unready were we to hear that Izzy and Inca's turn in date is in February. YIKES!!!! The letter had a reason that didn't make sense (who's surprised), but I'm hearing through the grapevine that NWR has 10 new apprentices that need dogs, so there are some dogs turning in this November who thought they were at least February dogs and Izzy and Inca (don't know about Ikris and Ivan also in NWR) will go in this February. How fast the time goes by when you're languishing and thinking you have until MAY!

OK, so we still have several months until February, but Izzy left yesterday to stay with her BFFs Kerry and Paul in Chico while Dennis and I go on vacation on Thursday (unlike Irish and Bill, she has to stay in the US). Besides that, she still hasn't gone into heat, so there's 3 weeks of possible training that will be wasted between now and then. Yikes, my baby is not ready for this (nor am I).

irish checks in

I am not nearly as proficient at commands as my sister Izzy but what I lack in style I make up for with my devilishly handsome good looks. So here goes

IRISH JUMP (are you sure this bench is safe??)

IRISH DOWN (I will but I feel like I'm gonna fall off)

IRISH UNDER (Now this command I like)

Hope all my brothers and sisters (and of course Mom) are doing great. Looking forward to some winter shots from my northeastern siblings.
