Welcoming Summer

Summer has come in full swing and Buddy and I are taking full advantage of it. I dug his kiddy pool out of the garage and filled it up for him in his outside play area, bought some new toys to play fetch with, and got him a new harness to replace his old one. (With any luck, he'll have a webmaster before too much longer. Here's hoping I can budget it in!)

On top of using it as the biggest water bowl he's ever seen, he loves to bite the water and dig in it like it's dirt. Unfortunately don't have any pics of that, as my phone is my only camera right now and I didn't want to risk it's electronic life with my pup out there splashing around.

A Dip in Disc

Buddy and I are trying something new--Disc! Right now I'm simply trying to build his excitement for the disc with a cheap dollar store buy, while I look into buying official discs (think Hero Disc or Hyperflite) Which is more complicated than it sounds, apparently. I think I'm going to buy just a few different kinds to try.

One fallback I've already found is that there doesn't seem to be an active group anywhere in Alabama. I found one group that had a website and everything, but from what I could tell, they haven't done anything in a long while. The "Next Event" listed on their site is one for October, year unlisted. So who knows.

 No idea if we're going to actually go anywhere with this, but we'll see I suppose!
