riding again...




















lobsta and puppy class...

It must be summer once again when we meet at the beach house with Lee and all the puppy raisers from the past are together once again. Not everyone is still raising puppies, but we all made very good friends and it's nice to catch up and see how things have gone while we have been apart. 
This year, it's Shadow puppy that came to the cookout.. with little brown dog too (of course). 
Kathleen has Miss Cadi... and these are the only two puppies we have in the Maine puppy raiser chapter.... we're small, but mighty....
Steve, Bernice with daughter Sara.. and of course Zuzu... Rick and Kelli with Attiicus.... and then Linda came down. Linda S. wasn't able to come, but she was the only one missing this year...

All the puppies were so good while we ate lobster, and had fun together... good part of their training too....
Shadow was pretty happy with his comfy brown "pillow".. I was kind of surprised that Livy put up with this. 

Such a nice afternoon.......
Monday dog classes began again....  I had the month of June pretty much off, and it seems good to be back to work after a break. I love teaching this community class... being out on the streets and working where the work really counts is just plain fun.....
It's a really nice group and quite a variety of dogs... Belinda is coming with Little Bits... who always draws attention, especially from children...
There are 8 in the group...and everyone takes advantage of "things" as they come up... statues can be surprising sometimes, but these puppies seem to know the difference...
I love that we have so many great places to work ... and the weeks ahead will certainly bring up the best (and perhaps the worst) in the puppies...


but that's what the class is all about...


So, summer is in full swing... cookouts, dog classes.. lake, visitors...

no wonder it flies by so quickly....
