"We don't have to run ALL the time, do we?"
Things are slowing down now. Late afternoon and Alex is resting in the pool while Tryst watches from the shade above.
Here is Tryst - rolling just for the joy of it!
First one in front, then the other!
Finally! A dog he can run and dodge and chase and be chased by! Watching two Tervs run is really FUN!
Tryst is visiting us this week. Alex was not real happy when I brought a 'stranger' in the front door - but they have gone WAY past this now!

We are looking forward to going to our first Belgian Specialty next spring!

Alex is doing fine, even with the heat at 100 or so today. Of course, he is only outside for 10-20 minutes at a time. He loves the pool and the running hose.

Three for a nap

My three fur-kids, resting after a busy Saturday. There is something that keeps them close together. I was sitting near by, on the computer with them all within a couple feet. It is so funny to watch the dogs rest while the cat watches over them. Carlos is tired, but still heads up, he is afraid one of the others will want his Kong.

What a family shot!

Summer being what it is, we haven't posted much lately. Alex and I are in an Obedience I class at Queen City Dog Training Club. Alex is loving it, naturally. We have only been a few weeks and already you can see the dogs improving. We have made new friends and are having great fun!

Fresh garden pictures this weekend - great color! No wonder Alex likes to cut through the garden! I don't think this is where he found his bee, though. There is plenty of clover in the yard this year. That is the likeliest place.
Here's hoping you all had a grand and safe Independence Day! I went with friends Saturday night to a family party and fireworks. Sunday, we visited our neighbors for a grill out - complete with our best canine friends. Alex enjoyed hanging out with Gregor and Finn, as usual. Monday morning, he stepped on a bee or something and started limping. His paw swelled up so I soaked it in Epsom salts and gave him a benidryl. He seemed fine in the afternoon, but the limp kicked in again on Tuesday morning. Luckily, I was taking a vacation day. We visited Dr Liz - always fun for both of them (LOL) - and confirmed my sketchy diagnosis. I have tried to keep him quiet the rest of today and gave him more benidryl when we got home. It is so sad to see him limping around. At least I know it is not broken this time.
