After the Salmon Incident.......Things are looking up...

So as you can see, we did go to the park after the terrible fish incident. I was really afraid I was never going to see the light of day again, but Vickie was true to her word and we headed to the park. She must really love me to forgive so quickly and then to make sure I didn't feel too bad for too long, but rushing us off to my favorite place in the world.

But in all honesty, who could hold a grudge against that face for very long anyway......I know how to use my looks......
The next day was Friday at the Day Care and we had a wonderful day then too. I went out with Vickie and played with all my friends. Even Gus and Cleo joined in the fun.

Big Jake was there and beleive it or not, Vegas is back for a stay. She looked so funny playing with Jake. I kind of felt sorry for Jake cause she slobbered all over him when he layed down to play with her. I am not sure why I felt sorry for him because later, I found out she was staying and that meant that when Jake left for the day, I was her only friend. Boy she is a tough girl.
She uses that heavy little body of hers to push her way through gates, and doors, and even pushed me out of my bed that night.

Annie, Shea, Daisey and Dizzy were so excited because we put out the pools. Dizzy is going to a REscue on Monday. His daddy couldn't take care of him any more and so now he is homeless. Vickie let him stay here for two months but we were not able to find a home for him so maybe the rescue can help.
I feel so bad when we can't help my friends.
More with Shea and Daisy playing, Dizzy is in the back ground watching and that is Ellie Maes bottom. She finds a nice warm place to lay down during the day and no matter how much is going on around her, she never gets riled. She just lays there still as can be. We have all learned to run by her without having to make her move.
vickies mom was coming down in the area for the day so KC got to come and play. I am not sure if he is happy about it or bored.....

Mia and Buddy have become fast friends and spend a lot of time roaming the back area looking for things to pee on or flowers to eat.
You may all remember, and many of you have seen my famous "Bert Bounce" here is a link so you can watch it if you want.
Well I was doing the "Bert Bounce" for my public today and I'll be darned if I didn't bite my tongue. Boy those tongues can really bleed. But don't worry, I am fine, and it didn't stop me from continuing the bounce for everyone who wanted to see it yesterday.
Spring has come to Canine Country Club in its best. The peach, apple and cherry trees are all blooming. It smells so fragrant and looks so pretty. All the delicate colors. Vickie is anxiously awaiting the blossoming of her favorite plant the Wysteria. It runs the length of the front fence and when it bloomed last year for the first time (after ten years) Vickie was beside herself.
She goes out every morning now hoping to see the first blossoms. I think the peach, apple, and cherry blossoms have helped her to be a little more patient as she waits for they wysteria.

Zeus is the first in the pools. He hogs the whole thing and won't let anyone else in until he is through. But it is ok, cause they are out all the time now. WE all get our time. Of course, I don't need no little pool though, cause I have a whole lake that I get to swim in almost daily.
Dougal got to spend Saturday out west with his dad. They drove for hours checking out the west desert. Look at all the cool places they found.

I would have liked this cool hanging rock. Especially on a hot day in the desert. Way to go Dougal. Thanks for sharing the pictures from your adventure.
While dougal was checking out the west desert, I got to meet with my search and rescue friends for the day. We all had such a great time.
Murphy and I searched this pile of old decomposing leaves from last fall for a teeny tiny little piece of skin from a human. Well, all of the dogs got a chance to look for it too. I was really impressed with how well they all did. I may have a little competition coming along.
This is Kumbaa (the picture below) I was small like him once, or so vickie says. I really don't remember. But she said I started out just like this when I started training to be a search dog.
Kumbaa did a really good job, but it was kind of cute to see him when he got tired. He would just lay down, right where he was and not move another step. Then after he rested for a sec, he would get back up and run again.
Vickie and I played with her hat just after I found a human bone that was burried in the dirt. I think I like this cadaver work. I think I like everything in life.
(Just a note here: why I am telling Vickie what to write, I hear this incredibly loud snoring sound. I mean, it is actually rumbling the floor. Guess who.....Yep.....that silly little big girl Vegas. Fast asleep and snoring like a freight train.)
Kumbaa mom. I am giving her the "Welcome to the group" hug.......
While Vickie and I were out doing the cadaver work and unknown to me, my bestest search dog human in the world, besides Vickie, came and joined us. It was my buddy Scott. Scott has been working with the Search Dogs since he was a wee lad of 12. He has been best buds to all three of Vickies partners and now he is mine.
I love him and I would do anything for him. I might even talk him in to certify as a handler so he can work me when Vickie can't go. That would be cool. Then if Vickie wants to complain about leaving work or her knee hurting. She could stay home and I could still go.

The best part about the training is when we are all done. Then it is time for us all to let loose and run and play and swim together.

Scott got Boney Tony out and he would throw it out into the lake for me. Then I would come back in and shake all over everyone. Soon all the dogs were out a swimming with me. It was great fun.
You can't beat a day like this. I mean really.
Chase and Betty can give you a great idea of how I felt at the end of the day.

Has Murphy thought of seeinig Dr. Gill. I"m sure that he could fix that bite and maybe even put braces on those teeth!
