We’ve gotten visitors yesterday to check out the pups and get a closer look at “The Pumi” in his natural environment.  Sandy Mainardi and Judy Hoffman drove up to us bringing along some long awaited sunshine  that certainly turned up the good mood on the farm.

The adult dogs put up their best behaviors hoping to get some extra attention (the forever opportunist…) They waited patiently (Pumi patience…) until Sandy and Judy checked out the pups and when the spot light has turned on them they were ready.

We hiked up to their new playground, the agility field that we set up last week.  The five Pumis quickly get comfortable with Sandy and Judy’s relaxed, playful and exciting dog handling methods.

Anka seemed enjoying the agility training as she did not have to worry about some “madsheep” in the roundpan.

Anka got some extra attention from Sandy, using her expert skills to find people’s soft spots (which was not easy with Sandy because she is in a pretty good shape.)IMG_4274 IMG_4302 IMG_4301 IMG_4300 IMG_4298 IMG_4294 IMG_4295 IMG_4296

After  we walked back down to the house, all four of us were happily eating our hard earned lunch (thanks to Laszlo) closely monitored by five adult and seven puppy IMG_4248Pumis from underneath the dining table.
