A dog's life

Bully has so many trials. We expect her to be on guard, and other than that she gets free food, good water and enough love for 3 dogs.

This has been a huge work in progress. Most of her life Nathalie has wanted to be able to turn a flip. she started diving a few months ago and can do back and front dives, and a front 1 and almost a front 1.5. It has given her a lot of confidence.

Frank leaving caused her to be determined to get a flip within a wk so I could video it. Each time I video so far, she does not land on her feet. But sometimes she does when I DONT video! We will get there...

She finally has a rotation!

She wants to land more straight up and also learn a back flip, something that Tad has been doing for awhile.

He is so excited still over being able to walk, he calls it his "walking trick" and says its a magicians dream.

I would personally be afraid of a back flip, he has several ways he can do it, including coming out a roundoff like he is going to do another cartwheel, but going backward instead.

He gets a lot of height and it really freaks Nathalie out!

This is how she wants to land... He is steadily coaching her through this, giving her valuable feed back.

Just a cool upside down shot!

start of a back flip, I did not get the complete set but I still love the photo.

These area actually out of order, this one came first.
