I have been MIA the past several days. So much has been going on and very little time to update the blog.
We haven't been herding or doing anything else special other than running the dogs in the evenings on the river.
Had a bit of a fright with the dogs two days in a row...somehow the dogs have been escaping our securely fenced yard - for the first time in three years. Yesterday our neighbor put them back in the yard. When he got home Beth greeted him at the door of his truck with a ball. None of the dogs had left our yard and were all hanging out on the grass. Bless his heart, he played with them for a while then put them back in the yard.
Today when I got home from the nursing home my son told me he found them playing with neighbor kids down the street.
One of our gates keeps getting opened. There isn't anything wrong with it, the latch is good, the wood is secure and there is no explanation as to why. I am very suspicious and have some sleuthing to do...
John's mother has been hanging on and has moved onto the 'actively dying' stage. It is only a matter of hours.
I am praying for peace and strength for my husband & family.
Good Bye my dear Friend, Hilary Petit
