  1. It's just a big hobby of mine. I do occasionally do shoots for people who want them. Misha makes for a good model.
  2. It's been a while. Misha and I have been busy backpacking and hiking all over oregon this past year. She's become quite the backpacking companion and is perfectly suited to my needs in a companion. She settles so well when we aren't out and about, currenlty asleep as I type this. Not much new other than she LOVES swimming, and will hop into water most chances she gets granted its warm enough. She and I took a 20mi backpacking trip in two days in the Wallowa Mountains, also referred to as the 'Swiss Alps of Oregon.' And that kept her quiet and mellow for at least a week before she was
  3. Misha's becoming such a wonderful canine companion, we went to the beach and she listened every time and came the second I'd call her back as it usually takes her a couple times to recall. She's grown braver too, as she jumped down a ledge into water, which she's always just whined and looked down and would find a more gradual slope to the water. And... She had her first swim! She usually doesn't go in past her belly so it was a shock to see her swimming. She's also gotten more vocal about certain things. Squirrels, at people drifting by in a boat, just many situations that she'
  4. I was going to suggest a crate also! A couple drops of lavender oil on a collar might help him calm down as well. I've seen it calm dogs in the car.
  5. All these puppy pictures are making me miss my potbellied puppy. She grew up so fast. Brief update, though we haven't been up to much. Training is going phenomenal. Biggest thing is heeling! Its been hard to teach, though we are making slow progress towards walking on a loose leash. Other than that, she is great, sometimes she'll have a stubborn streak and ignore me until she decides shes done exploring. Most of the time she'll come when called the first time. She got spayed a month ago, and it's healed beautifully. Keeping her mellow wasn't difficult, as she mostly regulated herself
  6. I got a similar shot of Misha doing a pounce as well. In the same field on the same day, we had a run in with a coyote which watched us and left after we started playing fetch. Fortunately, her coat color usually makes people think dog first. Regardless, there have always been remarks about how she looks 'wild' or similar to a coyote. We get more questions if she's a basenji or not. Though, in a group of dogs, Misha does look the most wild, even next to huskies. I want to say it is legal to shoot coyotes, at least in Oregon, but I might be mistaken. My grandparents have a bobcat and
  7. I've gotten a remark about Misha being a fox. Hah! Misha stalks while on the leash too... I'll have to tap her bum to get her to keep going.
  8. Misha just got spayed yesterday. Slept for the rest of the day and is doing much better today. She ate quite a bit and drank and is trying to play with some toys. It's pretty hilarious when she has her cone on because she'll freeze and hang her head like it's too heavy. She's doing a good job on taking it slow, although we have to help her up stairs and on and off furniture. Here's her riding a horse from earlier this week.
  9. I met a Nose x Tonto pup from Portland last month! Her name was Scout, just about two years or so, not sure. Her and Tsuki both resemble Nose. These dogs are so cool, and I doubt I'll go with another breed! I want more LOL
  10. I shoot with a Canon t6i in manual mode. High shutter speed.
  11. Here are some more shots of her and her best mate Tsuki. They get along so well. The other day, we had to cut their play session short, I stayed for a few more rounds of fetch and Tsuki was howling down the road. People at the parks make sure to steer clear of these two when they start their game. They sound so vicious and look pretty scary. And a moment of peace. They also like to share their toys together.
  12. She is great, her siblings, the ones I've been in contact with, sound very similar in temperament. I agree, theyre all super smart. Arlo grabbed Misha's tail while they were playing and Misha picked it up and is now a tail biter! Whoops... She'll also pick up things other dogs do and play like them, body slams, pawing, different play styles. She's very much rough-and-tumble. Misha is from Fala x Flint. On the puppy thread, she's the one jumping up to the camera. I've met one other Flint pup (different mother) who is also fairly similar. I've yet to meet her parents, hopefully soon!
  13. I was actually thinking about those weird toys that are sort of like puzzles! She's nearing the age that we are thinking about spaying... We have no clue what we are going to do since she's still so crazy! Basic training is already done and she's learned about 5 other tricks! She picked up a lot of the basics in the first couple weeks of having her. Next thing you know, she'll be able to outsmart us.
  14. Nearing 6 months old now, 18" at the shoulder and 22lbs. She has so much personality! She stomps around the house whenever she's happy (ALL the time), so we hear her wherever she is in the house. She's even less of a morning thing than I am! I'll usually get up before her and she'll stay in bed for another hour though, those few days she gets up before me, she demands I get up. She'll roll on my face or pat me on the eye with her paw. Very content to lay around the house for me or hit a trail or park.She's very insistent on going to the park every day, where she'll sit at the front door, l
  15. We drove up to Bellingham Wa then down to Redding Ca this last week, and Misha came with us. Orcas Island, Leavenworth, Redding and Weaverville. Both places we stayed at on our trip had dogs. One was a bit anxious with other dogs and Misha respected her space until she decided to teach her how to play with dogs. Over 30 hours driving and Misha was a champ. Had the opportunity to meet Misha's sibling, Milo but had to reschedule. Its interesting watching her with other dogs, as she's very in tune with them and listens to them very well, which I see a lot of other dogs struggle with.
  16. I like how Monmouth is in the middle of two major cities. Sure does make it easier for folks in Eugene and Portland to meet up. I'll have to plan one when the weather gets nicer and it starts to warm up!
  17. Ironically enough, when we had Kaylee, we brought her to a dog park and there was a woman with two AI dogs there who actually thought Kaylee was an AI dog from first glance, about 4-5 years ago! This was what sparked curiosity in me to research AI dogs.
  18. We haven't made any progress with getting her into another home, but it seems as though shes gained a little weight and her hot spots are getting better. We took her on a walk today and she was pretty dang happy to be out, though she has no muscle on her back legs, she seemed to be able to run around and play with Misha. I noticed blood in the stool, or what it looked like, on the way back to the car and her belly was bloated, making me wonder if she has worms. Regardless, I brought it up to her owners and hope they take action in getting her healthy again. Kaylee and Misha got along s
  19. That would be awesome! I don't know of many people outside of Eugene, but I've gotten into contact with the one's I do have contact info for.
  20. Curious if anyone would be interested in a meet up on Dec 3rd around 1pm at the Monmouth Dog park? Address is 1164 Alberta Ave Monmouth OR Misha and I will most likely be there even if no one shows up lol
  21. Do you know what it's called?? I was reading into the one in Independence and was reading it gets real muddy. Nevermind, I found it. Monmouth Dog park. I'll be changing it to that dog park! 1164 Alberta Ave in Monmouth, OR
  22. Hoping to arrange a meet up, if anyone is interested, as of now it looks like December 3rd at Independence Dog park around 1pm, in case anyone would like to come join.
  23. Here are some more recent photos of her. She weighed 18lbs at 18 weeks! We currently have her on 1/2 raw, and 1/2 kibble which seems to be doing really well for her. Her transition was smooth. And it's not terribly expensive or hard to find protein for her.
