Stars of Hope Always in Love to Lupin - Ben

I hope you enjoy browsing my site, and I hope Ben makes you laugh as much as he makes me. Ben was born on June 5, 2008, in a litter of four puppies. He spent his puppyhood with his breeder Anita, whom I would like to thank here for all the love and caring you gave to Ben and for the tears in your eyes when I decided Ben is coming home with me. I couldn't imagine a better breeder for my little Ben!

My greatest and only wish when I decided to have a dog was for him to accompany me 24/7 (which was also the reason why I preferred to take a small dog over a long-wished big one). However, I soon realized my puppy was an energetic bomb who resembled more a monkey than a dog. Long walks and hikes were never tiring enough. That's why we decided to use the brains and started to learn tons of tricks and to take agility classes to make some use of this extra energy.

OK, this doesn't have a lot to do with Ben precisely, but I just have to share this. Since I am not a very rich person :) and I really don't like to spend money on expensive equipment, I went to have a look around on a skiing fair - second hand skiing/snowboarding equipment. And I got everything! Second hand winter clothes as good as new for 60e and second hand snowboard as good as new for 60e :) I learnt how to snowboard 2 years ago and those were one of the best days of my life which I will never forget. So this year, me and some friends (guess who - Simona and Maja again :)) decided to go on holidays, have some fun in the morning on the ski-slopes in the morning and some more fun walking with our dogs in the afternoon. So of course, Ben is coming too, can't wait!! :) He loves snow! And mountains! :)

Other than that, my small poodle with border collie turns is finally getting the idea of tight turns :D Or at least it seemed so this morning. It looks much better, still a lot of work on it, bars still on the ground, but hey, we have the whole winter to train (the only good part about not having snow in the coast region of Slovenia)!

As regards to turns after the dogwalk - well, they look perfect, what else did you expect from Ben on a dogwalk :) ? And again, we still have a lot of work on it, but I don't worry about it at all, I just know, those turns will look pretty in the end :) The only problem is that when there is a jump ahead of him and one on the left, he totally ignores my commands "left left" and runs crazily to the jump ahead, but we're working on it :) It's so funny, when he's on that dogwalk, he seems deaf :D

Tricks video is almost ready!! It only needs a finishing touch, will be out next week, hopefully.
