Warm Water Therapy

Guido, and the rest, go for a relaxing swim.

Guido has been going to warm water therapy in recent weeks.

This week we brought all three dogs with us for students of the therapist to ... "practice" on :-).

All three were ready to join in the fun.

As you can see, all three seemed quite comfortable.

The movies are all fairly large - this page assumes you have a broadband connection.

Guido does his thing.

Helen - a bullet in the water

Even Jerome does it! (Watch the ears - think they help? :-)

Fence Work

This years project - many feet of fence.

That's about 350 feet of fencing there. (Our property's on the right.)

Thirty five fence posts, each (or re-dug) dug with a plain old clam-shell post-hole digger. Obviously there's still a lot of boards to be put up (more boards are under the tarp to the right). The priority was on those posts though. The lower portion of the pasture in the front of the photo gets fairly wet if it rains. At the end of the spring rainy season, I could dig a post hole and it would fill just as fast with groundwater. Over the course of the summer each hole was nicely dry.

Other things are in the works for a couple of weeks, but I hope to finish putting up the fenceboards, and building the gate near the top, next month.

Guido on Duty

Guido fills in as the doll shop official greeter.

While Jerome is away on a "business trip" we ended up taking both Helen and Guido to the doll shop the other day. Here's how Guido spent some of his time:

As you can see he's real bothered by everything :-). Clearly he likes just looking out the door. Or snoozing.

Who me?
