    We journeyed to MI last weekend for a long weekend with my parents. I'm so incredibly homesick and lonely lately. Summer is my usual heavy trial season and I just don't have anything going on here in TN right now. I know it takes time to figure out what venues are good to go to and when they are and everything...I'm just so tired with overworking and...I'm a big whiny brat.

    Here are my GSDs!

    Aikon had his first off leash hike when we visited my parents. He had a lot of fun. I am pairing him up a lot with Kastle because I absolutely love how Kastle is out and about and would love Aikon to mimic that.

    He's a high stepper

    Team work to get this root up!

    He's always bringing me...presents

    Working on recall (this puppy is way more independent than Kastle was at this age!)

    When we got to the river, little man was not so sure about this swimming thing...

    Kastle LOVES water and was more than happy to demonstrate how much fun he could have all on his own!

    He swims!

    And then he looks like an alien

    The look assisted by some seriously weird ears...

    Pretty tired after all of that!

    The end!

    Kastle is so great looking, and there ain't no puppy like a GSD puppy. :)

    In that picture where Kastle is bringing you that branch he looks so much like a puppy himself. Adorable! He's such a beautiful dog, I just love him. Looks like he and Aikon had a great time!

    Big transitions always take a while to adjust to. At least you have two awesome dogs and some great trails to run in the meantime!

    Wow Kastle! I love his name too. I like the photo of him standing kind of off center on the trail. That's my fave.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words :D

    He really can be. He is so sweet, snuggly, goofy - just a love bug. But, only me, Jason, and Lies really get to see that side of him :) Sometimes when we play, he acts like he's 12 weeks old again - I love it.

    Too true! :)

    Thank you! I'm trying to stay upbeat. Everyone says that the first 6-12 months is the hardest and we're at 8 right now. Most of the time I'm so busy I don't notice. Then I visit MI and I am so sad to leave and realize all that I am missing. Especially in the summer!

    Kastle is 27 inches tall (I think), and 58-62 lbs depending on the season (haha)
