At least they could get wounded somewhere easy to bandage!

Well, what happened now? We are working on trails around here and the dogs come to run around while I work on clearing and all that super fun stuff. Maggie managed to hurt herself or get in an altercation with another critter. When we got home I noticed she had two nice little puncture marks on her chest (bite) and a gouge ripped out of her inner thigh. I have no idea what she got into but hope she learned her lesson.

It is pretty tricky to bandage that spot! It looks like I went overboard but this is really the only way to get the bandage to stay put!

This is her frozen in place with her new "diaper" on!

She kept standing forever, then got tired. This was her solution to that! hahaha! Bum cannot go down or the world will end.
Later she felt brave enough to lay all the way down. Poor thing! Poor brat! She's just happy she has full 24/7 access to me and the house!

well holy jeez

It's been a while! Last post - summer was starting. Aaaaand fast forward to today - summer almost over! Gahhhh!!!

So here are the highlights of my summer, in pictures!!!!!

I met some alpacas!

Fossey got her first bath!

We missed hockey soooo much by May (one month after the season ended), we played spring hockey with OUR TROPHY BECAUSE WE WON THE LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!! Yay North Storage Grey Matter!!!!  :)

 I was happy my mom came for a visit!

The dogs played their ASSES off.
 Remember "borrowed" dogs Earthling and Willow? Well... they're still here! Looks like they will be for awhile, good thing I love them and they fit in so well!
 I also turned Earthling into a complete ball freak, whoops.

 Willow just wants cookies.

 I went on a train ride! (Skagway White Pass route)

 It was foggy and oh so cool to see the old, dilapidated bridge disappearing into the fog.

I got interviewed for a tv show! (here we come fame & fortune)
BEST part about this picture is Pooh Bear being all about the ball, knocking into them and their expensive equipment, what a jerk (and yes, they threw it for her multiple times!)

I had some of my favourite beer in...

VEGAS!!! That's right, I went to freakin' Las Vegas. I thought I'd hate it but what a hoot!
 I seriously loved gambling.

The grand canyon was pretty cool too!

 Mom and I had a blast.  Here she is on our Pink Jeep tour!

I bled. I learned a lesson. Do not attempt to work on fencing in shorts and sandals. FYI.
 (as you can see, Fossy is VERY concerned for my well-being)

Maggie is also all about her and only her - she snuck into my bed one morning!

Louis is good ol' Louis! They're all crazy maniacs who tend to have wayyyyy too much energy. Fall training is coming soon and that will help curb the crazies.

We went biking. In the rain! A lot. We also did the bike relay, yay.
 Happy before my leg of the race (in which I got rained and HAILED on, argh)!

My teamies were weird.

I also did the Chilkoot Trail! A 53km (30-something-mile) historic trail from Skagway, Alaska to Lake Bennett. It was freakin' awesome! And horrible at the same time. 
But it was also super freakin' fun.

The views were AMAAAAZING! Every 10 minutes, I had to stop and admire the beauty.

Day 3 I started to get happier, not soaked thru and enduring non-stop f*cking rain anymore, yeeehaw!

We were delirious in the rain!

Who doesn't love snow fields in July!??!?!

 I was SO happy to have finished, that is truly the look of pure elation.

 The week before we left, this area was flooded! They closed it and those already on the trail had to wade through chest-deep water, eek!

Howler enjoyed spring! 

Jack is... well, Jack! Mr. Mellow at 13.5yrs and still adorable. 

Ivy was recreating The Exorcist while cooling off in the pond

 I saw a boat. Ok, a SHIP!

And I laughed my ass off at this: HAHAHAHA

Living In the Boonies

George is hilarious, at 14.5 yrs, she is still scavenging things like this out of the bush! Walked outside to see her gnawing away on this gem and guarding it from the crazy pups! Have no idea where it came from but someone is missing a lower leg out there...

Here's ol one-eyed Howler! He still has a habit for being a klutz! He managed to run full-on into my shin last week (I still have a dent from it!) and then managed to injure his front leg on a walk yesterday and came to me screaming like he broke it! Thankfully, he is a bit of a drama queen and was totally fine 3 minutes later... Sheesh!
And boy did these pips pickup the ball fetish that mom has!!!
