Mom has been preposting a bunch of flower pictures but she hasn't been writing many posts lately. So, I told her it was time to get back to the work of blogging.
We've been working on getting our event all set up for the Olympics. Lots of people sent in their entries and we are so grateful that so many people wanted to enter. It really is a memorial event for Bailey as he inspired Mom to ask about offering it.
I've been exploring life as a single Sheltie and learning so much. Without Bailey's help I've had to work extra hard keeping the critters in control. A new groundhog has moved into the area and he's a bit grumpy. The bunnies have exploded. Thankfully, Dog Dad managed to remove an area they were using to hide behind and that seems to have made them less aggressive. We now have chipmunks and squirrels!!
I've also been making more friends in the neighborhood. When Bailey was alive he was the social one. When we'd meet dogs, he'd greet them and I'd shyly hold back until he was done. Now I'm doing the greeting and I have specific dogs I like to find on my walks with Dog Dad. I also have humans that look forward to seeing me when I'm out as well.
Mom and Dad are also continuing to look for another Sheltie friend for me. Mom has started contacting some New England area breeders to see if anyone has any adult dogs. She's contacted the local Sheltie rescues in the areas, but nothing is happening so she's moving forward. She's made a few contacts and those contacts keep leading to other contacts. Mom is patient, so I am hopeful she'll find a good friend for me.
