My New Place

Well the last two months have just been a whorl-wind.  First we had two back-to-back trips, one to Colorado, the other to Yellowstone for Search and Rescue Training.  Next it was time to get ready to move.  My work just opened a new rescue facility where all of our animals will be housed initially and where the dogs will stay at night.  I lucked out and got one of the caretaker apartments...but that meant trying to move while also opening a brand new facility and still keeping the adoption center running!  Needless to say, it has been a fast ride!
[A large, red and stone, barn-type building with wooden decks sits in front of dusky mountains.  It is surrounded by sage-brush]
We are now all moved in and enjoying the peace and quiet after having lived in town for many years.  The property sits on 100+ acres, so Marley is in his element.  With so much room to run and no where to really run to he and Hugo are having a blast!

We live in a one bedroom apartment over the 16,000 square foot Ranch.  My favorite part so far is being able to use one of the 3! dog baths!!!  Makes grooming go sooo much quicker with 4 dogs! 
[A far away view of the Ranch building.  Many acres of sagebrush surround the building.]
 The views are pretty amazing: "Million Dollar Views" as they are commonly called here.  But it is pretty isolated.  My commute is much longer now.  No more  quick runs to the grocery store!  All in all it has been really fun so far and I hope it continues to be!

[Shadowy/blue mountains sit in the distance under a light purple and pink cloudy sky.]
[The sun sets behind a hill turning it to black.  The clouds are a darker purple and touched with pink.]
[A dirt road winds through sagebrush under a light blue sky.  The  distant Wasatch mountains are dusky in the evening light.]
Even some of the weeds out here are pretty!

That's a beautiful place! The dogs are really really lucky to get that much room. It also looks like a pretty good place to practice Search and Rescue.

Oh my gosh! What a dream of a place to live and work. It looks gorgeous, and all that space to run. The dogs must be in heaven!
