Ian had a surprise on Saturday when his "Grandma Julie" (a.k.a. Julie Hite, his breeder) came to see him. I don't think his tail stopped wagging the entire time she was here! Ian showed off his house and all the photos his mom has of him. He also showed off the training building, although he would only do a tunnel for Grandma Julie; Mom runs him you know! He also got to show off how he plays ball. My dad taught him that particular game. However, Julie threw the ball in the largest snow drift, and he thought her aim was a little off!
And Ian got to play with his half-sister Donita. She traveled to Long Beach, CA, and back with us in December 2007 when Ian went to the AKC Agility Invitational and Donita when to the AKC/Eukanuba National Championships. Ian thinks he's way more impressive than Donita does, so she always has adjusted his attitude! Ian (left) is pictured with Julie (human) and Donita (dog on right). Gosh Ian looks like his sire Hank in this photo!
By the way, I've had a reader request to see more of Ian on the blog (bet you can't figure out who THAT came from), so I'll have to put him in the rotation!
