Luna getting a new friend and more training

The last few weeks have been very busy. I’ve gotten more hours at work, which I am very happy about, but this also means less time for everything else, including blogging, photography, and everything else there is to do with once’s spare time.

However, since I have my exams in just a few months (dog training) I am stressing about to teach Luna all the required behaviors and commands she needs to know. And since I still have a lot to learn myself, this is quite a slow progress.

Besides this, Luna has gotten a new friend lately: the Siberian Husky Mika. She’s a young sweetheart at only 9 months of age, and she’s so kind and gentle. Her owner invited me to train our dogs together with a friend of her a couple of days later, and while I didn’t manage to teach Luna any new things, I managed to come very far in teaching Hugin, my whippet, to spin. What will he not do for meatballs?

Now we are looking forward to Wednesday, as this is the first day in 4 (or 5) months that my dogs can run off leash in the woods! In Norway you’re not allowed to let your dog run freely during spring and summer, to protect the wildlife while all the baby animals are born and young, in addition to all the sheep and cows going around the woods this time of year. It will be great walking without having to hold on to the leash again. Once you’re spoiled with not having to, it sure is annoying when you do have to. 😉

And now for some pictures:

I just realised I had not updated my Instagram on this beautiful little girl. Millie came back to us after being re-homed two years ago due to severe behavioural issues. She had become aggressive and fearful and the family decided it was best for her to get a new chance somewhere else. For a while, everything seemed to go the right way. Slowly she started trusting us and let her guard down and as the weeks went by she started to relax more and more. Unfortunately, this extraordinary girl, even though she had let her guard down a little, lived a life in constant fear. Every tiny little noise would make her fly up and bark fanatically, and when she was not sleeping she would pace back and forth in stress. She was wary around people and very sensitive towards body language. We could not trust her around people or children as she would send mixed signals and this girl could easily have bitten someone. We therefore decided to put her to sleep. To end her fears and axieties. Her very last day on this earth was spent doing everything she loved. We played fetch, drove the car around, cuddled and ate hot dogs. She wagged her tail from the moment she woke up till she closed her eyes for the last time. I will never forget you Millie. You were such a sweet soul, and you earned your forever-spot in my heart. You deserved better. Sleep well, my sweetheart 💕 #love #missyou #dog #dogtraining #itried #deservedbetter
We are currently up in the mountains, relaxing in our caravan. We've spent the days hiking and exploring and tomorrow we will go and try our luck with catching some fish! #dogtrainer #doggiehike #dogplay #dogphotography #dogphoto #dogoftheday #mountains #mountainhike #iloveyou
There are no limits to where and what you can teach! I spent 20 seconds teaching this new trick to Luna while in the toilet 😂 #dogtraining #dogtricks #bordercollie #smartashell #superdog

My little wonder has grown mentally and he is now a lot tougher! I like the direction we're heading ❤ He is still easy to handle and very eager to do right 😄 #herding #dogtraining #dogtrainer #herdingsheepdog #sheep
