Catching Up

It's been a great September so far. While we had a total of 18 hook ups on the dogs last September, this year with six days still left in the month we have had 23.

So I decided that Simone, the dogs and I needed a day off running. The fact that Simone headed for bed at 8pm last night and I was cuddling with my pillow by 8:30 was a pretty good sign that a morning off was due.

Now, while there has been no stirring from the direction of the handler cabin, those that have lived with me for any time will tell you that I just plain don't sleep in! But still, a morning drinking coffee, watching some TV and puttering around at some chores around the house is restorative for me! That's my story and I'm sticking with it!

Anyway, I found some photos from earlier in the week that I wanted to share but never quite got around to. These were taken Thursday morning.

Turtle - aka The Turd

It was a beautiful fall morning - colorful leaves, blue skies and a nice dog team!



This is the trail that Dasher and Jinx put in Wednesday morning..



It's still tricky in spots, but Bang and Billie listened well and made me proud!




Love traveling with our shadow running mates!

Anyway, that's it for today. I'm off to fold some laundry, do some dishes and maybe even sweep  the floor before heading off to run and feed puppies!!

Hope you all have a great day!
