A Doggie day at the river

Well today was surprisingly amazing. What more can I ask for 80 degree weather, well 77 but close enough, 6 dogs, a cool river and family time? I spent the whole day at my parents out on the river visiting and doing laundry. Jasmine got the best part of the deal though, a full day of fun and swimming with her favorite "siblings".
Her day started with an hour of ball time! With 6 dogs, it takes a while to get them all their ball time and semi-warn out. Jasmine as you can see needs more mouth, ball co-ordination ;P

Then since everyone was nice and warm we walked a little ways down the driveway to the river. Jasmine thinking she's a Labrador dove right in.

Then when "grandma" found a stick it was time for fetch time! As you can see the Shorted-Brains LOVE to play fetch! Jasmine on the other hand would rather be digging up rocks, which on this beach there is definately no shortage of them.

From left to right- Jacob's behind, Dali's behind, Samson (My boy and old man!) in front, Moses (hiding behind Blue), and Blue (who really really wants the stick)

My wonderful Ol' man Samson.
Dad and Samson on the other beach.
Hmm seem's rocks no longer held her intrest so off to chase the Shorted-brains.

Moses & Blue
These boys are ALWAYS together, what else would you expect their brothers.
*I do love how when they bring back a stick they're always striding in unison.

Oh wait she found more rocks!
This one especially was HERS and NO ONE was going to steal it from her.
Thankfully the shorthairs don't care about silly rocks, mainly because they sink and they can't be retrieved.

And this is what the Princess said when it was time to go home for the day. Bratty lil girl ;)

Now my stinky, muddy, sandy dog is sleeping on her bed, passed out from her days adventures. Too bad it's raining now otherwise tomorrow would have brought another day of swimming.

Ask Ohio to repeal "pitbull" in their BSL

From my AKC News email today.

Ask the Ohio House of Representatives to Repeal BSL!
[Thursday, April 15, 2010]
House Bill 79, sponsored by Representative Barbara Sears of Lucas County, removes the term "pit bull" from Ohio’s statutory definition of dangerous dogs. All Ohio residents are encouraged to contact the Speaker of the House and their legislators to ask them to support this important measure and end 20 years of discrimination against responsible dog owners in Ohio.
Ohio is currently the only state to have enacted statewide breed-specific laws. The current law states that if a dog "belongs to a breed that is commonly known as a pit bull", then it is automatically considered vicious and dangerous. Owners of these dogs must submit reports to the board of health and county dog warden whenever there is a transfer of ownership.
Breed-specific language in state law has also enabled local Ohio municipalities to enact strict ordinances regarding ownership of "pit bulls" and has led to the ban and euthanasia of numerous dogs in communities throughout the state.
The American Kennel Club strongly supports House Bill 79 and recognizes that dangerous dogs should be defined by their deeds, not their breed. The AKC urges communities to establish a fair process by which specific dogs may be identified as "dangerous" based on stated, measurable actions, impose appropriate penalties on irresponsible owners, and establish a well-defined method for dealing with dogs proven to be dangerous.
The AKC strongly opposes any legislation that determines a dog to be "dangerous" based on its breed or type, and applauds the Ohio representatives who seek to remove this discriminatory language from state law. The AKC encourages Ohioans to contact their legislators and members of the House Agriculture committee and ask them to support this measure.
