Dogs on the Dike
Amid garage sale preparation, yard work, and family stuff I found time for a walk on the dikes near Pitt Lake yesterday. Ellen and her whippet Kinley accompanied us, and the day was absolutely perfect - sunny and clear, neither too warm nor too cold, with just a light enough breeze to keep any bugs away. The place was deserted, and other than meeting an absolutely gorgeous Berner pup and his black lab pal and their human just as we returned to the vehicles, we saw not a soul for the whole time.
(Sorry, Sharon, no Belle pictures this time - she is doing very well, but can't handle the longer romps on the dike so she had a walk with me in the pasture and then stayed home for a nap. I learned the hard way, on our last dike walk, that a 20 pound sheltie is rather heavy to carry any distance!)

One very happy Charley
