Those of you that have read other posts know Scout, he is a fun and energetic dog.  Last night he got a new title!  He is now known as:

Sealevel Propwash Red Boyscout CCS

What’s CCS you ask?  Well…it is Champion Counter Surfer!  Last night was the last straw, he got a stick of butter, which follows the broken Corningware pot of lunguini, which follows the corn on the cob, which…you get the idea.

I have no idea how to stop it, nothing seems to work other than keeping him out of the kitchen and never let him leave our sight.  We can be in the room and look away and he is right up there looking at us out of the corner of his eye to see if he is “safe”

It was suggested to lay a trail of black pepper on the counter and let him get a snoot full.  I will be getting the pepper tomorrow.

If you have any ideas leave them in the comments.

Ok, so I have been away for a while, sorry. I was playing frisbee with Scout the other day and we play with two, one for me and one for him, he never gets mine until he puts his at my feet, I know I could use the exercise but it’s his job to bring them back to me not near me.

Anyway…one of my wonderful throws lands in our large hammock from LL Bean and he looks at the frisbee over his head, looks at me and then starts to jump at the bottom of the hammock and proceeds to bounce the frisbee over the edge. I was worried that he would try to bite at it from below (it’s about three feet off the ground) and he did once but realized that it wouldn’t fit between the mesh. I will try to get a video or pictures the next time it happens, although you know that will be the time he tears the hammock to shreads 🙁

It’s spring time and that means that agility is just around the corner.  Once the yard dries out we will be setting up the jumps again and classes start next week.  I hope to have new info and photos coming up soon!  Meanwhile here is a photo from last fall’s agility.

I have been ignoring this for a while and just to update that we are still here and winter was upon us in full force a few weeks ago. We’ve had close to 30″ of snow so far this winter and Scout is in heaven eating as much as he can get into his mouth.

This week marked the 10th anniversary of the Great Ice Storm of 1998 and the temp today is in the mid 50’s. Maybe it’s really global warming? Anyway, it looked like we lost about 3 inches of snow depth over night and if this keeps up we will be into full on mud season. Something that I want to avoid as long a possible.

Zach was making chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips the other night and when he left the kitchen, someone, we all know who, go the bag of chips and opened it and started to help himself. Yesterday Zach was pretty amazed to see the wrapper in the yard. He’s a smart kid, but it has to go somewhere…
