Hey, its sunny now!
We just got back from a run at Whatcom Falls. The off leash area and lower falls trails are pretty dry. Sammie didn't get wet until the old railway line.

Sorry for the long lapses between updates. Duke had a localized bout with Democratic Mange. It's been a 3 week ordeal. So while that's been going on he's been staying at Brigadoon. I picked him up this morning and it was like a kid seeing his dad after a deployment. My homie, as I call him, has searched my house for every unaccounted for crumb on the floor, checked to see that his bed and kennel still smell like him and now he is firmly placed in his spot in my recliner couch. In 20 min or so we'll head to the grange to get spoiling materials for my boy.

We had a foster dog, Jake, come in to us that had mange. My vet (a family friend, now deceased :( ) told us that Jake's immune system had been stressed. Our vet treated the mange medically but he also suggested that we give Jake some R&R. So we gave Jake that R&R and seriously thought about keeping him because we loved him so much but a much better home came up and he is enjoying his life. Anway, all this is to say, your last post brought up memories ... and I am glad to hear Duke is on the mend. I hope he continues to enjoy that bed that still smells like him and best of all that he has a spot near you. :D
