On this walk through the woods behind my place, I comment on how different of a world it is, now that my book about Shayna is finally done, instead of something I am “working on.”  Shayna seems very happy, and even leads me on a trail that goes through the woods (off the main path), […]

In this video, I wanted to get a combination of Shayna’s top three skills: (1) Retrieving toys by name, (2) Stacking her ring toys, by name, on a pole, and (3) Retrieving one tennis ball or two, depending on the command (“counting”). I was able to get it all in just four minutes. Enjoy!   […]

This feature was filmed in mid-October (the story page, with complete transcript, is here). I thank the WRIC reporter, Amy Lacey, for doing a really good job in presenting Shayna’s story, and that of the other dog parent who was featured. (As opposed to another news story on us that was done by a local […]

Come along with us as we drive to the University of Virginia, then do our toy training.  As you can see, Shayna was absolutely delighted.  Keep in mind this video was taken 10 weeks after she endured heart surgery.

  30Mar13 Toy training at Albemarle High School On this relatively warm spring day, we did our training outside, and had a ball. As you can see, Shayna looks incredibly good, is running around like a maniac, and is feeling good. The end is as sweet as any moment in my life has ever been. […]

This video shows Shayna doing her flash card toy retrieval training, and dunking balls in her new talking basketball backboard.  Plus, I give a shout-out to a one of the employees at the CASPCA with whom I interacted from January-April 2002, Shaye, who was so helpful and patient as I began the long search for […]

It was a relatively warm day today (low 50s), so we did our after-lunch toy retrieval training at Albemarle High School. I comment in the video that she’s gotta be one of the smartest females I’ve ever met – which I guess either (a) means that she’s as brilliant as I think, or (b) doesn’t […]

We’ve had a pretty rough last 11 days, since Shayna developed a new medical problem, nothing serious, but terrifying nonetheless given her underlying diagnosis, which is devastating.  The good news is that she is rapidly mending from her current malady, and was very amenable to going out for a ride this very cold morning, to […]
