Summer's over...

Fall has arrived!  Evening arrives with a slight chill in the air, and before long the leaves will be changing color.  We're excited, because this means more hikes on our favorite trails.  But it also makes us a little sad, because we had so much fun this summer!  We played with the Avengers puppies, and taught them everything they would need to know, to become awesome collies!


We played in the backyard and enjoyed the sunshine!


We went for walks on the beach, and Scarlett even tried swimming!


The Avengers were born in the Spring, and while all the boys went to their new homes, little Scarlett stayed with us.  She has become a beautiful young lady!

Scarlett and her mother, Abby
Scarlett went to Sunnybank, where she competed in her first puppy match and visited the graves of her ancestors, the Sunnybank collies.


Ryder spent most of the summer growing into a handsome young collie.  We can't wait to see how he looks when his Winter coat comes in!



Kori spent the summer learning obedience skills, so she can compete in Rally or obedience next year!

We went to the dog park, and made lots of new friends.  And then the summer ended with Ryder and Kori's birthday party!  Which meant we all received a new antler, Frosty Paws and home-made dog cookies!





We can't wait to see what fun and adventures the Fall is going to bring!  (Sorry this ended up being the complete opposite of a "Wordless Wednesday" post!)

    1. Ryder more than any of the others is thrilled with the cooler temperatures! He was pretty unhappy with hot summer weather.
