Spring/Summer is finally here

June 16, the days are long and summer officially starts only days away. True summer is short in northern Idaho, so it must be enjoyed to the fullest while it is here. The garden is in full swing. The parade of spring flowers is nearing its climax.
The kennel welcomes a new member, Cooper, a purebred siberian husky who joins us from Prineville Oregon where she was bred by Karen Yeargain. Cooper is a 4 year old and will be working with the Dashing teams in future years. She is fitting in nicely and we are enjoying her company, and learning how to "sibe - proof" our yard!

Our running days are now distant memories, though I am able to take individual dogs out with a bike via spring or k-9 cruiser for some exercise, when mornings are cool. I am hoping that this will help to keep them in some minimum level of fitness for next fall. It is also that time of year when we explore other activities, particularly agility. I have been accumulating some equipment and have converted the old "puppy" yard into an agility training area.
