Went for 2 longgggggg walks today, lol. This morning, to pass time away til the Humane Society opened at 11am to get her licensed, we did a short 3-4 mile walk on the trail by the river. Then after that, we went on a long one, lol. Probably around 12-14 miles, lol. 6-7 each way, lol. We went from the South end of town on the trail all the way to the Wenatchee River Bridge and back. Stopped along the way so she could get wet, lol. She loved it, but I'm not taking her off the leash, as she wants to bolt at most dogs that come by. And for people, she's awsome, unless they are running, then that herding instinct kicks in and wants to go for the heels. And she's one strong dog, lol. Can almost pull me, lol.

Here's more pics.....

Update....

Today was my first day at work with her alone. MISTAKE, lol. I left her inside, and even though she is great when I'm here, she turned my house inside out, lol. She pooped and peed as well, lol. So tonight I had to spend more money and got her a training kennel. This is only til I get my fence up in the back yard, then she can stay out all day. I'll have a 50ft cable run about 6 feet up, and a lead with a roller on it so she can run the whole length of the yard. You can get these at Petco, and they are fairly cheap. Made of aircraft cable, so it's high strength too. Also need to get her a dog house too. Maybe my next bonus check, lol.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

It's really hard to train a dog working a 9-5 schedule. If it helps - the way we did it was to leave as late as possible in the mornings, putting the dog in a crate, coming home for lunch and letting the dog out then back in the crate, then coming home as early as possible in the evenings. Of course, this was much easier with 2 people, and over a short period of time we were able to leave earlier, not come home for lunch, come home later, until eventually we no longer need the crate.

Looks like some of that mix may be shepherd. GREAT looking dog!

Hope this helps,

That was my plan. I only work 5 minutes away, and generally come home for lunch. So that's what my plan was.
