Apologies in advance for the size. Having trouble resizing accurately for some reason.

 

Been having a bit of a rough time lately and decided I was long overdue for an early morning training sess. with Kay. I roped a friend in to joining me and, for the first time, was able to get a few photos of her "in the zone"...

She looks pretty much the same!

Not sure if she knows where the ball is or if she's just super focused with the eye-contact expectation I have during training...

The largest wind turbine was erected in my village at the end of last year. I'm not entirely sure how they actually work, whether they are entirely wind-operated or what, but it always creeps me out a little when it's spinning steadily and then suddenly stops dead when the wind hasn't slowed.

And no Kay photo dump would be the same without a dopey Dobe.

Thanks Ares. I always see her as more "handsome", LOL.

 

Lady Kate...We see enough of Kay. Where's Sofia at?! I don't ever remember you doing a photo dump. *hint hint* Also your new pup is gorgeous so...y'know. ;-)

Well, if you insist... ;-P

 

Lady Kate, I know you don't like this word, but it's got to be said...Kay's so fat! I've no idea what it is. Vets didn't find a problem with her thyroid and she normally gets around 3 hours of physical exercise a day. Doesn't over eat. I'm stumped. Lately when I've been doing less with her, I've noticed she's gained a bit more weight so that makes me think she's not getting enough exercise, but I thought I was pushing it with the 3 hours she normally gets.

She's a big dog anyway, and she's not built to be slight, but she has NO uptuck and her waist is near nonexistent. The only place she feels "flabby" is the underside of her stomach, the furless part, and her chest. Everywhere else is solid and doesn't jiggle when she moves.

Getting a bit concerned, LOL. I was sure it was hypothyroidism, as that would explain the issues I had with her behaviour as well, but now I'm fully stumped. I'm thinking of getting more protein in her diet to see if that makes a difference.

She's gorgeous. Axel has filled out like Kay and he's very active. Maybe it's just how they were meant to be. I have a question..you mentioned wind turbines in your "village".

Yep, largest on land above sea level wind turbine in the UK apparently. LOL. It's either been erected in a field or part of a quarry (we have a pretty neat quarry as well) but I don't know enough to say for sure which of the two. I'll trek up there one day.

Went for a dog walk with a friend yesterday. She's got a little Yorkshire Terrier and a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. I'm not really a fan of bully breeds as a dog for me to have, but they're great fun to walk with. This girl's just fantastic.

(excuse the blur)

 

My friend was excited over the fact she'd finally taught one of her dogs to "shake hands" and I'm there like, cartwheeling over the fact Kay's actually relaxed around some dogs that aren't immediate family LOL. Love this dog though.

I don't normally include the other dogs in my posts here as they aren't Dobermans, but I took Kay and the JRT (Star) out this morning and had my camera...One thing lead to another. ;-)

Star's a bit annoying.

Kay doesn't mind.

She still gets told off sometimes. This is her "sorry for bullying the big dog" recall...

Nice duo shot. It's really hard to get a black and a white dog in the same photo!

Star gets the ball very occasionally.

Mostly when Kay has to be shut away because she's going to run herself dead. She wasn't amused.

 

P.S Star is also my proof that my lot aren't under-exercised/over-fed LOL. She's like a little athlete.
