Busy Weekend!

A quick day trip to the mountains to winterize cabin.

Yesterday, we took all of the dogs up to our cabin in the mountains. Soon, the snow will fly especially in the mountains so time to make sure the cabin is winterized. Unfortunately, our cabin and the surrounding area is on mandatory evacuation notice due to the Cameron Peak Fire.

Current map as of 10/5/20 of the Cameron Peak Fire

Wildfires are horrible; it seems the entire western half of the country is currently “on fire”! We are incredibly grateful to all the men and women firefighters currently working to put out our particular fire!

Deja wanting to know WHAT are we doing (and why is she behind the fence? LOL!)

The dogs LOVED being in the mountains though. Our property has just been recently completely fenced so the dogs are safe to run around and now can only think about chasing the many deer “up there”.

Olly wants to join us too! We did go out and play with them but first… Needed to get some home maintainence done.

Cabin “winterized”; heat set to 50 to keep pipes from freezing; and the snow plow as been attached to the UTV just in case our next trip up entails plowing snow! I know I have a few emails/puppy inquiries to answer… I promise I will get to them soon!

This has been a horrible summer with very poor air quality for so many folks! NEVER have I wished so hard for snow/rain to put out these fires and improve the air quality for all!

Adventures of Beacon in the Colorado mountains…

All the puppies have gone to their new homes and are doing wonderful! Concerns regarding house-breaking and adjusting to their new homes is ALWAYS a stressful time… for puppies and the new owners. All of these puppies were such a joy (and a big part of our summer!) And now it is fall; time seems to have just flown by!

Meanwhile, “Beacon” is a bit older puppy from the CH Rooster x Charlie litter whelped this spring. Getting updates on ALL of “my” puppies (or puppies related to my dogs) always warms my heart… Love seeing the adventures puppies are having in their new homes.

Beacon does a lot of hiking with his new owner. And when Beacon can’t walk, his owner carries him! I don’t know what is more beautiful? Seeing this puppy go on his adventures OR the beautiful mountains in Colorado? Both are stunning which is why I thought I would share…

Looks like Beacon has been swimming!

The owner was AMAZED he went swimming on his own (because this IS snow melt/ice cold water!) She didn’t throw a stick or encourage him to do this, he did it on his own!!
