Water Dog

While Harley has limited us a bit this summer, he has also made summer a lot of fun. He constantly keeps us on our toes, and he is growing so fast that he is now over 22 pounds. He is learning to love water which gets him so excited he tears around the yard in excitement! His absolute favorite thing to do is eat, particularly his dog food, but also everything else he can get his little teeth on. He has learned to go up stairs, but going down is another story. He kennels well and sleeps until the minute the sun comes up. He now knows three tricks - sit, down, and shake and will do them instantly anytime he gets in trouble. We think there are a few more that he knows, but only when he wants to do them. He is definitely working his way into all of our hearts and making our lives whole.

Old Friends

We caught up with some old friends as they swung through town today. When the Riveros and Riveras get together it always adds up to fun!

Camp Rokilio

Four days in the wilderness with Dad and some other members of my Cub Scout pack added up to an awesome Camp Rokilio. Dad and I perfected our skills in swimming, archery, shooting, knot tying, fire building, whittling, and obstacle courses. We even made time to complete some community service by shoveling wood chips. I earned lots of patches and had so much fun I can't wait to go back next year!

July 4

We headed up to the cottage for the 4th of July. This would be Harley's first trip north and he handled himself like a pro. He slept through the packing experience which was probably a good thing since he likes to steal shoes and he may have prolonged it until the end of time. Once we arrived, he enjoyed his time on the dock chasing dragonflies and watching us paddle board. He didn't quite realize the dock ended, but Mom stayed close by to make sure he didn't fall in the water. He survived fireworks without getting too scared, and upon arriving home he CRASHED! My big news for the weekend - I lost my 8th tooth so I am now officially tied with Lily. She was so upset about it that Mom didn't even get a picture. Dad did inform us that the race was going to end in a tie anyway since we each have the same number of teeth, but we're still in this for the long haul to see who can get there first!
