News of the times

The team has been a little busy with work and staycation, staying off the computer. But, the Blog is back!
The team had a few friends over. Fun times. Puppy times. Fin asked her daddy if she could have her own little HiMark puppy since she enjoyed Gambol so much. Dad said, "No." boo hoo.
The team also had family over for 4th of July festival of fun. We had an amazing spread of food for which we selected the most healthy options. The family had a great time with swimming, relaxing, visiting, and of course, the ever favorite, eating.

The team spent time installing a closet system for our master closet. It was a bigger job than I had anticipated, but we got it done and are pretty darn proud of ourselves.

We've also been really busy watching our garden grow. We have peppers, zucchini, tomatoes, herbs, watermelon, eggplant, beans, grapes, pears, apples, apricots, peaches, plums, and cherries.

Trish and Eve have been helping with the garden and we really appreciate their help.
Tazz is THRILLED that we haven't got the fence around the garden yet. He and Maddie are masters at finding the ripest and harvesting before I can get to it.
The team is also doing agility. We've participated in THREE Derrett workshops, fun matches, and working our Salo grids.
Fin is going to learn to retrieve (she never had a reliable retrieve so I'm shaping it), she is learning a down on a teeter, and learning to run and not look at me.
We are hoping for an August trial with Fin. Time will tell.
