Good Luck Schooner!

Schooner is moving into the Adult program on Monday and tomorrow, he is leaving his puppy raiser family and moving in with his new adult raiser family. Schooner and Breton are good friends and loved spending time at the off-leash park together. Today, Leah and I took the dog's to the dog park for one last run.

Good luck in the adult program Schooner! Breton and I will miss you at the park. I know your destiny is big as you take another step forward, and we are proud of you (and your momma for the job she has done raising you).

Leah, Breton and I are always up for a walk at the park with you. I know she would love to hang out with you any time you are craving some canine companionship.

Pool Time

Oh, hi there! Yesterday I was hanging out in my wading pool. I was skeptical in the beginning of exactly what Mom wanted me to do with this pool thing. It wasn't like it was a pond or the river at the park, you know, something to swim after sticks in. This was just a small, cold little body of water that barely went over my elbows. I watched my brother go in and dig around in it, splashing the water all about. When he got out, I decided to test one paw and then two and then I found myself standing in it. I enjoyed dunking my face in it, but basically I discovered it was just a great thing to stand in.

Bentley, chillin' and supervising (but mostly chillin').

I think he felt the pool was too small for the two of us. More pool for me.

Ah, Mom! She caught me coming up for air here.

Stony Plain Farmer's Day Parade 2009

It was one year ago, almost to the day, that we participated in the Farmer's Day Parade in Stony Plain and on Saturday, we marched in the parade again. We had a very good turn out of volunteers and their dogs, and even had Caper and Elliott, two of our 2009 working Autism Service dogs and their families walk in the parade with us. It was very special to see the two dogs working with their families and to witness the joy in the children they were with as we walked in the parade together.

Leah gave me a ride back to my car at the end of the parade. This is Breton wrestling with Schooner, her brother, in the backseat on the way to dropping us off. Schooner is a true host by allowing her to beat him up in his car.
