Two weekends ago Tom took Marley and Hugo up into the Unitas for an 3 day backpacking trip. While the trip got cut short due to massive amounts of mosquitoes, it was a wonderful success in terms of beautiful pictures and getting the dogs used to carrying their packs with some weight in them. We still won't put much in until next summer when they are fully developed and done growing, but for now it definitely makes for great entertainment.
This past weekend Sterling, Dante and I spent Saturday at Bark in the Park, a fundraiser for my work. It was a great success fundraising wise, and the dogs had a fun time! Dante competed in the Doggie Dash, and was almost as fast as my boss's toy poodle (who has longer legs!). Sterling was stellar in the musical sit competition, coming in third behind two adult dogs. We also meet three CCI puppies, and compared the similarities and differences between the two programs.
This week is the kid's camp at work, and I cannot wait for it to be over! I love the kids, but this does mean 10-12 hour days for me, and Saturday marks the start of my 10 day vacation, which ends with my trip to Fun Day in California.
