Puppy!

Mary's 12 week old sheltie puppy Kip is staying with me for a couple weeks, he arrived yesterday. It's been fun seeing Kip as I have had very little exposure to sheltie puppies, so this is novel - and my big chance to actually spend quality time with a sheltie that will actually give me …

Swimming!

Big benefit of the warmer weather (and less rain!), it's actually been safe enough to take the dogs swimming down at the river. I'm still on the search for the 'perfect' place, but there are really no bad swims, if you ask the dogs. Even Bright, who doesn't want to swim, always enjoys laying down …

Summer is actually my dogs least active time, no one likes running around when it's hot! But 40 degrees and raining, the …
