Gearheart Elk

Took some time from dog training to take my brother out to the Oregon Coast. We were able to see some of the Gearheart Elk. We did not find them on the beach (which was the photo I was hoping for) but we were still happy with the time we got to observe...

Kuawarri V V Aider

Vaider loves life. He has to be the happiest dog I have ever had. When we are out he wants to be with me but he does not want to sit and relax; if we are together he wants to be doing something. If a dog could be the Energizer Bunny, Vaider would be the only choice....

Watkinsons Chuck Cheemo

Watkinsons Chuck Cheemo. I liked Chuck from the moment I saw him. I was looking at some pups but I thought he was not available. I told Trudy I wished he was an option since none of the others caught my attention like he did. When Karen told me he was an option I knew...

Take Off…From the Great White North

While by Watrous Saskatchewan, in the fall, I love to see the Sandhill Cranes. It is always a thrill to watch them hop and interact with each other. When I get to hear them call as they fly, I am filled with excitement. As they fly south with their stopovers, to eat...

The Throw Away

Since it is the end of the year this is an appropriate photo. I was going through some shots thinking I should delete some. This is one that was not marked to process. I thought “That is one of my better shots of the Golden Crowned Kinglet.” It was set to...

The Big Picture

I have been thinking about the way I look at things lately. The thing I realize about myself is I am a detail person. When I am working herding dogs I focus on each little detail. I notice all these little things that make the whole process work. This makes it hard...

Kraken camp

Watkinson’s Kraken Owned by Cynthia Mills Kraken has been here at Double V for a little bit. I think he feels like he has been sent to boot camp. Very nice outrun on Kraken, he searches for sheep even when he is just in the yard with me. I like a nice searching...

The Economy Of Love

It is hard to deal with the loss of something or someone close. I have been thinking of this a lot this year. It has hit me again the other day as my niece is having to deal with the loss of her horse. How do you deal with the loss of a close companion? Some people...

Beautiful Fall Day At Double V

It was a very nice day here on the farm. Trudy as normal, was working hard and spotting birds for me. She spotted the Northern Flickers out digging their beaks into the soil as deep as they could. I did not see them come up with anything but it was still fun to...
