Lacey waits for me to put her pink raincoat on before she goes out in a light drizzle , she would agree with Kermit no down or staying on wet soggy ground......now swimming is something else entirely!

I know I shouldn't complain, but I feel like it's been raining for 40 days and 40 nights. I would really love some sunny days AND evenings! I'm at an outdoor dog show this weekend and I just know that poor Miss Seeker will look like a drowned rat. Thankfully obedience with Kermit is inside, or I suspect he'd refuse to do his sit and down stays on wet, soggy ground.

Sylvie whelped three puppies yesterday - two boys and one girl. The third puppy (a boy) was sadly born dead. But I have two beautiful, strong puppies and Sylvie is being a wonderful momma. Pictures to come, I promise.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the pups will come tonight . . . just a few days earlier than I expected. Her due date was Thursday, but that's a guess at best, just like with women.

I love that picture of the kayak in your trunk. If I saw you driving down the road like that I know I'd slow down and stare. I don't know why, but it makes me giggle.

Here is the picture of the kayak I have been loaned for the season. It is a small one and I wasn't too thrilled with it when I used it last week. I felt cramped in a tiny space. I also got wet. it went one way and my butt went another. Paddle with a wet but for the rest of the evening.

It's been raining off and on all weekend here. The dogs are starting to get cabin fever - they can only chew on antlers and wrestle for so long before they want to stretch their legs. I, on the other hand, am getting lots of knitting done.

Hi All. Sorry I haven't been on, just been busy. As far as I know my neighbor's wife is doing ok. I think she will be having surgery soon. Sorry to hear about your friend. I knew a woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer while pregnant. She has a mastectomy after the baby was born and implants. As far as I know she did ok. My sister is weak and she has been told she still has a blood clot in her abdomen. She is went to see the vascular dr about it and he put her on medicare. Said it will take a while to dissolve. My aunt, my mom's sister, isn't doing well and I don't think she will be with us much longer. Hospice wasn't doing the job they were supposed to be doing and it was wearing out my cousin and my mom. My mom is no spring chicken, she turned 90 this year. Her sister is 93. My cousin ended up moving her mom to her home to take care of her. She still will have hospice, but feels better this way as she has fallen a couple of times. Funny think about hospice it is the company I work for. Speaking of which, if I didn't need a job, I could have walked out of there today. I really think it is, "let's make Kim miserable this week"...not liking my job much right now, although I was told I was getting a $1/hr raise. Yes it should help, but just not happy there and haven't been for a while. Going to start sending out resumes.

It was a good weekend - much-needed. The break did me good. I went up to see my parents (my mom had surgery 2 weeks ago) and just relaxed. I played lots of fetch with the dogs in the huge field behind their house and enjoyed knitting and just hanging out.

My neighbors are great. This guy has helped me out several times. This guy has mowed my grass, put new wood around my window that rotted, ang put a battery in my car earlier this yr until my old one was charged at his house. He is always helping someone and I feel sad because his wife recently has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer which has spread to her bladder. Shde is going thru chemo now and will be heading to the Cleveland clinic for other treatment.

Very exciting news about the kayak Kim! Hope you can figure out how to carry it.


Kermit with his ribbons from the weekend. He earned a perfect score of 100 out of 100 (and 2nd in Class to a faster Border Collie) as well as earning 99 (and High in Class) and High Scoring Cocker Spaniel. I got all kinds of compliments from the judges, the ring stewards (people helping to ensure that the dogs get in and out of the ring efficiently) and the other people watching.


Seeker and I - Seeker is a dog bred by my friend that is staying with me while her owner is going through chemo. I suspect she'll end up staying forever, as I have bonded with this dog (I know, what a huge surprise LOL)


This is also Seeker - the epitome of a Cocker Spaniel. She is such a fun little dog!


Opie, enjoying some time in the backyard. It was finally neither too hot OR raining!


Jack Jack loving some play time. He would fetch all day if I'd let him. Hard to believe he's 8 already!

Good news for me...my kayaking group is no longer letting people use their kayaks, except for me, and I was asked if I wanted to store one for my use for the season. Heck yeah!!!! Now I have to decide which one I want. The smaller one or the bigger one. I really want the bigger one because it handles better and I find it more comfortable. Problem is I have a small car and no carrier. . got to think on it, but i was doing a happy dance when i got home from first kayaking trip of the season.

I am using a friend's camera. She let me have ...welll, because it is a peice of junk, but still gets the job done. It beeps and makes other noises and I haven't found how to turn the sound off. Some lady got a little pissy with me when I was out bird. Wasn't like I was the one that made the bird move, probably the other 20 people standing with us.

Anyway, thr camerabeeped and I noticed the meerkat kept listening and coming closer, trying to figure out whst the noise was. Gave me a great shot.

Dogs have always been my first love. But from my very first visit to the zoo I've been fascinated by meerkats. They're not an easy animal to get good photos of, so I'm very impressed with Kim's skill!

Went to the zoo on Saturday with my one sister. She has been a member for over 25 yrs and they get a "breakfast", just muffins, and coupons for free ice cream cones, small pop, train ride. Spent a couple hours there. It was very muggy, so it felt very warm, and was sweating like a pig. Ugh!! Got some good pictures though.

Congrats to you and Jack Jack.
My sister is doing much better and the swelling in her leg has gone down, but still had swelling of the foot. She was going to be released this afternoon, but her heart rate went up for some reason, so they decided to keep her. Hoping she will be going home tomorrow.

Your yard looks beautiful Kim!

This past weekend I had a nosework trial with Jack Jack. Here is my write-up about it . . .

I am super proud of my dog Jack Jack (Ch Ch (A) Calla's All Bets On KLAD PCD, Am RN, Can RA, SD-A (SP), CRN-CL, CRNT, ITD (Cocker Spaniel). In September 2014 Jack Jack had an idiopathic (no known cause) facial paralysis. This isn't uncommon in Cockers, as the facial nerve can get damaged from inflammation in the ear. Unfortunately, this impacted Jack's ability to do nosework, which he had previously been quite successful at. He would search and search and search without being able to locate the hot scent. Reluctantly I decided to stop training and competing, as he would get so frustrated at knowing that the odour was there and that he couldn't find it.

In July 2015 I was trial secretary for a nosework trial (Sporting Detection Dogs Association in Canada) and watching all of the dogs compete successfully inspired me to enter Jack. Much to my surprise, he passed two of the three components required to earn a title with the SDDA. His searches weren't pretty, but he got it done.

In September 2015 I entered one day of a trial, in hopes of passing that last component. That day was a bust, as we failed all three components. It seemed like he would start out nicely and then quickly get mentally tired from the searching. I decided to take another break (enforced by a lack of reasonably local trials) and reassess in a few months.

This weekend I am again trial secretary for an SDDA nosework trial. I hemmed and hawed about entering Jack this weekend, trying to decide if it would be too much for him. I finally decided that if the trial didn't fill, I'd enter him. I don't regret it. At all.

First we ran containers. He did beautifully, giving me a confident alert on the first one and then moving along smoothly to the second one. I was thrilled with the success. Then we ran interiors, and I was nervous. This was our missing component - the one that could earn us the title if we passed. He found the first hide very quickly, and I breathed a bit easier. When he found the second hide with confidence, my eyes teared up. When I called the alert and the judge said yes I scooped up my dog to shower him with kisses. I cried a bit, knowing we had passed an obstacle that had felt insurmountable only minutes prior. When we ran exteriors, all pressure was off. As far as I was concerned, the dog didn't need to do any more than he already had. But I guess he wanted me to know that retirement is out of the question. He nailed his hide in just 12.12 seconds. I cried more. He had earned his SD-A (Sporting Detection Advanced) with the Special (SP) designation, indicating that he had passed all three components on the same day. I was on top of the world.

During awards, I was over the moon at the knowledge that we'd be getting a new title rosette. I had no idea what was to come . . . . we took 1st in Containers with a perfect score. We took 1st in Interiors (our nemesis!) and then we took 1st in Exteriors with a second perfect score. We were the #1 Advanced Dog in the Amateur stream, and we ended the day as the Best Overall In Trial. I've never won a High in Trial or a Best in Show, but I can only imagine that this is what it feels like. I am still floating and I hope I never come down off Cloud 9.

I guess they have done the doppler and an echocardiogram. Won't know anything until tomorrow. I only know that the swelling in her leg has gone down. I am hoping I will be able to trim the furkids tomorrow. I got both of them bathed yesterday. Today I got flowers planted, but still have more to do.

My sister is back in the hosp. She developed a blood clot in one of her legs and part of it broke off and went to her lung. She is doing ok and haven't heard anymore yet. I didn't go up to see her since i have a cold.

Feeling better. Still have the cough and some congestion. This is the first time in a long time that I can actually say I thought the interview went really well. I was supposed to interview with another person, but he had a family issue, do probably be next week or so to meet with him. Then if all goes well, I would meet with someone from the corporate office. Keeping my fingers crossed too!

I agree completely! It was gross . . . but on May long weekend, it's pretty much to be expected.

A few photos to entertain your eyes . . . .


The purple socks, which I finished on Friday night. I love the lace edging and the beads.


This is the beginning of a shawl that I'm knitting for my mom. I bought the yarn in Las Vegas.


Kermit after his haircut.


Jack Jack also got his hairs cut


I did a Paint Nite last night - I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Money troubles are so frustrating. I hope you can find a better paying job so you have some money to do FUN stuff with.

Totally bummed last night. The guy I was going to get the kayak from to use, backed out because he was too tired from a stressful day. That meant no kayak for me to use. They also hadthe pizza party, but I didn't go. I decided to stay home and look for a job that pays more. I amso tired of struggling with money. Want to buy a kayak of my own, but have a house pymt to make.

Nothing yet, although I expect we'll get it. The fire is so big that I can't imagine not getting some of the smoke from it. On Tuesday the air quality in Fort McMurray was 53!!! Crazy, considering it's a 10 point scale.

Sounds like you're enjoying your visit with Sharon!

Enjoy your trip Kim - it sounds like a lot of fun! Pizza and then being on the water at midnight, especially if the skies are clear (not cloudy). It should be beautiful.

Cheri, enjoy your visit with your friend. I really, really, really need to clean my house. It's on the agenda for this weekend, in between sessions of knitting and Gilmore Girls.

I think he barks louder, because he is deaf. Going on my first kayak outing of the season tomorrow evening. We are having a pizza party and a moonloght cruise.

Poor Murphy . . . it's no fun getting older, that's for sure.

I hope your sister doesn't feel too rough after her chemo.

Kelly I think that the people of Fort Mac are a pretty varied group but generally friendly and accepting so they are getting their largesse returned to them.
I wonder of someone is bothering Murphy ?

Hello all. Busy, busy. Spent time doing some birdwatching the past week or so. Got some great pictures of warblers. Sister is doing ok. She has a chemo treatment tomorrow and will probably be wiped out the next day or so. Murphy drives me nuts every evening as he barks non-stop. I don't know what his issue is. Sophie is slowing down, but she still chases the squirrels. Have a nice evening.

Some of the vendors at the dog show this weekend were raising money for Fort McMurray too, either by selling certain items or by having collection jars out. The host club offered to match all donations as well, so I think a good chunk of change was raised. The outpouring of support from across the country has been pretty amazing.

Yes, the firefighters and other first responders have been INCREDIBLE. They are the true heroes in my opinion. Things could have been so much worse without their hard work.

They're fine, thank goodness. They sold their house last year, so my mom was renting a room in a friend's home. That house is fine in terms of actual fire, but I believe there might be some smoke and water damage.
