5 June: It's All Fun & Games Until Someone Loses a Tooth

Alternate title: When Cosmo Met Parker (not entirely true, since they first met on Sunday...)

Nervous Cosmo (L) on a first date with the slightly older, sexier & happier Parker (R)

There are a pleasantly surprising number of flatcoats in this neck of the woods grasses (?). We have Cedar from Eagletarn in Richmond, and Cosmo from Coastalight in Nanaimo. Liz at Blazingstar has a couple of dogs from their own breeding line (Tinbie and Puffin), and Cava from Kennel Bramatha in the UK. Judy Hunt has Roxy and Mazie from Affinity in the Fraser Valley, and Kona from Blazingstar. Sarah N. recently lost Kaleb, who was from Prairielight in Saskatoon.

25 April: Life's a beach

After 24 hours of intensely observing her new toy brother, Cedar was sooo tired that we let her catch some zzz's while we took Cosmo to the same beach we'd taken Cedar to a year ago when we got her. When the tide's out there's a nice sandy stretch of safe, germ-free ground to let the pup go crazy.

We thought we'd fool him into thinking that this was what Lethbridge was going to be like...fresh air, endless beaches, water as far as the eye could see, and logs to clamber on. He'll be in for a bit of a surprise :)

NOT impressed with the ocean breeze so far...
