Summer is here!

The last two weeks have been busy with the new puppy, and enjoying the warm summer weather. Zephyr has been very good about the new addition so long as she keeps her teeth to herself!
Zen is totally smitten by him and follows him everywhere. He is a good dog to have around when teaching a puppy! Watch them here out on the trails!

New Addition-New Blog!!

After waiting almost 2 years for this planned litter, she travelled almost 900 kilometers on Sunday to get here! My big surprise!! Welcome Zen!!

The universe has a strange way of looking out for us sometimes. I put a deposit on a puppy from this planned litter back in August of 2008!! Back then I had no idea what would happen to Chase so close before she was to come to our house, and at first I was worried that it was going to be too soon after....but I think the timing is actually perfect. I think the energy will be just the pick me up that Zephyr needs and will be good for my son to learn that as much as Chase is gone new life happens as well.

She has fit in so well too, she has taken to the kids and the dogs, we have fallen in love already.

Follow along with our journey together on her own blog.

Day 3 of Regionals

Sorry this post is a bit late, catching up with the real world!!
Sunday proved a bit harder for us, than Saturday. Another hot day, and by the afternoon Zephyr was getting tired and not as quick to respond as usual. An off course for us in Standard and jumpers. Oh well!
Overall we placed 4th in our division and did qualify for Nationals! We had fun as always and it was so nice to see lots of our friends that we hadn't seen in some time and meet some new ones!
Also friend and student Dave Geall came out and took some AWESOME photos of Zephyr for me. He took lots of the other dogs too. Check out his website.
