We had to say "Good Bye" this week
to a few very important things.
First being our hope of ever
getting a faster Internet speed.
True.....after trying all the
providers we know of, we have
come to the conclusion that
there is no higher speed
available in our little corner
of the world.
I find that so hard to believe but
that is what we have been told.
So "Good Bye" hopes of ever
enjoying faster visits to all of our
blogging friends. (However, we are not
going away, we are just going to
be eyes only. We will try and
comment as often as we have time
for. We might try emailing)
The Second very very sad "Good Bye"
was to my sweet friends Baci
and Logan. They moved far far
away to Colorado. We miss them
tons and tons.
Third and more painful than you
can imagine, we had to say "Good Bye"
to five of our shade trees that were
killed by a beetle last fall.
Brutal little buggers, those beetles.
We depend so much on our shade trees
here at Canine Country Club.
Yes we still have 17 big beautiful
shade trees and considering the
temperatures have already
reached 98 degrees with a prediction
of over 100 for the next ten days,
The play area that they sheltered has
become almost unusable.
You might not be able to tell from
the picture but three of the trees were
about 50 feet tall and they were
so perfectly green and beautiful
every year. And they were homes to
many many species of birds who
greeted us each morning with
their songs of happiness.
Watching them being carried away
through the air by the big crane
actually brought tears to My Vickie's
eyes. As they took their last
look down on the kennel we sent
our thanks for all the wonderful time
that they shared with us.
And finally, we said "Good Bye" to
my new little friends.....the foxes.
The pups are now hunting on their own
and with the summer campers and hikers
moving closer and closer to their
den, mom and the kids have
decided it is time to leave.
We sure hope to get glimpses of them
in the future and if we are lucky enough
to get a picture, we will be sure to post it.
So, enough of the "Good Byes"
I think it is time to take a dip in
the river. Man is it hot.....
