It's been a long time coming, but we finally had beautiful weekend weather. The dogs and I spent a fair amount of time outside, stocking up on our Vitamin D. The puppies had lots of visitors this weekend, so it ended up being busier than I had planned. But it's good for them to meet lots of people, and they love it.

How was everybody else's weekend?

Tashie is a young lady now, which is scary. I still remember the day she was born. And Libby too. It's true, they really DO grow up super fast.

Cheri, I hope the weather held out for you so that you could spend some time in the garden. Up in the Peace River region it was hot and sunny (and very buggy too). The puppies had a fabulous time on their road trip and met lots of kids and adults. I'm pretty tired from the driving (8 hours each way), but it was WELL worth making the trip.

Yes dogs are family members .I think real dog lovers even consider their friend's dogs as friends. On a quiet day I still think about Farley and chuckle over his magazine column I used to read that faithfully. Of course I felt awful for Kim when I heard Murphy had passed on because we so much like them and love hearing about them ,they are an extension of our friend's family to us.

Another storm last night, but once it was over it actually cleared up a bit. I took Seeker for a short walk, just to get out of the house and stretch my leg. I can't remember the last time I had cabin fever in the summer!

Neither of mine sleeps in my arms, but they do cuddle in as close as possible. I love my dogs, like everybody here does. I just saw a post on Facebook that says that losing a dog hurts as much as losing a family member. Well duh! They ARE family members!

Well, the puppies turned 4 weeks old yesterday. They are in the fun stage now . . . walking, wagging, starting to run and playing. I am enjoying them so much, as are my adult dogs (mostly). Seeker and Kermit play with them every day.

This is Justice, that I showed for his owners.


Justice again. Now he gets to focus on agility training, which will make him very happy!


Seeker at the dog show.


Sylvie enjoying one of the new dog beds I bought at the show. All of the dogs love these.


LB enjoys the beds too, which is great. I have had a hard time finding him a bed that he actually likes. Usually he eyes them with suspicion, as if I am plotting to somehow kill him with a bed.


The puppies outside yesterday. I had them outside late last week, but my grass hadn't been cut in a couple of weeks, so they couldn't really enjoy it. Yesterday was much more fun for them.


Seeker playing with the little boy puppy

Opie has some hair, but not a full show coat. That's what Cut Down means . . . it means they have a very short haircut. Once my dogs finish showing, I cut their hair off, because it makes life infinitely easier.

Well, because I'm a glutton for punishment, this weekend I had a dog show. I showed Seeker and a black dog I've been showing for a friend named Justice (he's black). Seeker took Winners Female on Saturday and today to add 4 more points to her total. She now has 8 of the required 10 points towards her Canadian championship. Justice took Best of Winners (best of the non-champion males and females) three days in a row to earn 6 points and finish his Canadian championship! He did so in very limited showing, and he enjoyed every step he took. Today I took the puppies for their second outing outside, so hopefully I got some good pics to share.

A few photos from my trip, plus of the puppies.


The intarsia socks I finished in the car (we drove 30 hours each way so I had plenty of knitting time)


Kermit with his ribbons from rally obedience at the National Specialty. He earned his US Rally Novice title with two 3rd in Class placements and a 1st in Class win.


Kermit with all of his rosettes from the show. In addition to his Rally Novice title, he also earned two passing scores towards his Companion Dog (CD) title, which is regular obedience. He earned a 1st in Class and a 3rd in Class for those passes.


Opie and I competed in a special class for dogs that have no hair, called Cut Down. He got 3rd in his class, but I think he showed well and had fun.


Seeker is very glad to be back home


The puppies at 3 weeks old - the boy is on the left and the girl is on the right. They've had their first haircuts now.


I couldn't resist . . . .


Momma Sylvie and her babies


I love them both.

Sorry for my LOOOOONG absence! I had a dog show the weekend of July 14th and then I left for St. Louis, Missouri right after that. I just got home late Tuesday night and have been busy unpacking and reorganizing everything. I promise some FULL reports as soon as I can accomplish that!

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.

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.

Kelly, I didn't know Sylvie was having pups. Can't wait to see pics! A friend of my woke up to a new filly this morning. I knew her horse was close to foaling. Wish I could share pics. So cute!!

Hope you all have a safe and fun holiday. Lots of fireworks around here, but my dogs don't seem to be bothered anymore, since they are both pretty much deaf.

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!
