Blogville Fun Announcements!

Hi Everyone!!

Arty & I got together in our Mayoral offices yesterday getting things ready for Fall in Blogville! 
We do hope that everyone has been enjoying the summer (or winter) and with the change of seasons coming up, we thought this would be the perfect time to plan some events and we sure could use your help! 
So far we have come up with two fun events for September:

First up is the
 "How I spent My Summer(or Winter) Vacation"
 Blog Hop!

 Just let us know with words, pictures, or both, 
how you spent your time over the Summer (or Winter if you are one of our Southern Hemisphere furiends). 
We will have a Blog Hop set up 
and we can see what all our furiends have been up to!! 

Please feel free to display our badge
 and help us spread the word about this event!
 It is open to all our anipals!

Next UP! 

 will be the Blogville Picnic
and we would love to have your help for this one!
Do you want to host a fun event?? 
You know, maybe a potato bag race, a team tuggy game or even a good game of frisbee?? 
We are hoping for a day of fun in the sun followed by 
a Barn Dance hosted by Mabel and Arty! 
 Look for more information and a sign up sheet for events next Monday!  

Let us know if there are any other events
 YOU would like to see around Blogville!! 

just a side note: we have been having intermittent internet issues 
so please excuse us if we are not always commenting.
A tech person is coming tomorrow to try to figure out why

A Fun Weekend!

I sure had a fun 3 days at the
Upper Snake River Valley Dog Training Club
Obedience and Rally Trials

On Friday we entered Rally Novice
I finished this title last year but Mom thought it would be a fun no pressure way to start the weekend

I earned 89 out of 100 pts. and 3rd place

Saturday we were entered in 
Beginner Novice Obedience
I needed one more qualify to earn the title

 190.5 points for second place 
and my
Beginner Novice Obedience Title!

We also entered Rally Advanced
Mom wanted to get an idea of how I would do off leash
We didn't qualify because Mom missed a station.
But I stayed with her through the whole course
 and she was very pleased about that!


Sunday we did Beginner Novice again 
and we got 4th place with a 190 score

A great weekend!

Hazel got to have some fun too 
and brought home her own ribbon

At this trial they always have a Team event on Saturday
It is just for fun and the teams get very creative

Hazel's team was called
The Old Duffers
All four dogs were over 10 yrs old 
and the mom's dressed up like old ladies. 
Mom & Hazel rode into the ring in a wheelchair! BOL!

They played Lawrence Welk Music while they were heeling and did their best to entertain the audience

And because they were the only team that entered
they won 1st Place!!

A friend was taking pictures during the trial so we will share some of them when we get them

Antlers and WildFires

Good Morning Friends!

When Mom & Dad were in Great Falls, Montana
they spent some time walking in a mall 
to get some exercise
The mall had a PetsMart store.  
We have one opening soon in Pocatello
 so Mom wanted to check it out

They saw this awesome split antler
 and just knew they had to bring it home for me

These pictures show how much I enjoy my new antler chew!

Lots of marrow!

I am in antler chew heaven!

This is what our sky looked like yesterday.
We have had some wild fires in our area 
and a new one started Friday

The Powerline fire has spread quickly
 and already consumed over 50000 acres.
It has come within 4 miles of Pocatello's boundaries
At this time they have prevented the fire from moving closer to town.
 Unfortunately we are expecting dry thunderstorms later today with up to 50 mph winds
so the firefighters are working extra hard today. 
We pray for the safety of all those battling wildfires around the country.

As for us - we actually live a little north of Pocatello.
The air quality is horrible but we should be OK.
