I have gotten so tired of trying to mow around all the flags!!!! We figured we needed to start from scratch with the training as we've stop & started so many times.
Anyway we have only been using the training collar that will just gives a beeping signal if she goes too close to the flags but we noticed she stays well clear of them. Yesterday afternoon she was being totally obnoxious so I put the collar on her & sent her outside..........Popster was cooking dinner on the grill so I figured he would keep an eye on her.

"Three Musketeers" & Rainbow Bridges

We lost the last of the "Three Musketeers" last Thurs. Lucy (yellow lab owned by my neighbor Ellen) & Onyx (black lab owned by another neighbor Carol) grew up as puppies together & Liza adopted us at 4 years old to join them. Ellen lost Lucy just before Christmas but both Liza & Onyx were able to celebrate their 14th birthdays. We like to believe that the following is true & that they are all having fun together. We sure miss you..........................
