While We Were Out

October 6, 2008 at 4:58 pm 2 comments

After a three week hiatus – we’re back.

While we were out:

*  The kitchen was nearly finished.  At least enough so to allow me to cook in it (yay!)

*  Audie went to sheep for the first time.  He’s keen, but not brilliant.

*  Zip went back to sheep – and appeared not to have forgotten anything.  We worked a bit on driving.

*  Zip realized that fetching bumpers in the water not only would not kill her… it could be fun!  Thanks to Audie (my Labrador in a Collie suit) for leading the way and egging her on.

*  Fall arrived.  The trees are in full color, we’ve been harvesting pumpkins, drinking fresh local cider and enjoying cool evenings.

*  We celebrated our first blog birthday.  SmartDogs Weblog was launched on September 29, 2007.  Shortly after I discovered the blogosphere I gave in to a fit of hubris and started my own blog.  One year, 190 posts and 10’s of thousands of hits later we’re still here and we’d like to send a big Thank You to everyone who’s stopped by to visit.

    Happy birthday! It’s been a real pleasure following the Smartdogs!

    And bravo to Zip and Audie! We’ve spent a lot of time recently training on chukar partridge — which seems a lot like trying to herd sheep at times.

    And congratulations on your kitchen. If there’s one thing we miss from our old house, it was a nice big kitchen.

    with warm wishes
    Andrew, Meg, Momo + Jozsi

    I’m glad you’re blogging, keep it up!
