New girls for the Brown Boys to investigate. Kayla has met Eazy already, the boys were very polite with the new guests. These are a group of mellow dogs, well with one brown exception named Wilson..lol. Wilson is much quieter than he was in his younger days, so by comparison, we consider him ‘mellow’. Kayla is pooped today, she had a rather poopy night, so she was up and outside a lot, seems much better now. Whatever she decided to put in her tummy, must have worked it’s way out. We loaded up the truck yesterday with a ton of salt (literally), so the dogs helped. I think we have enough for all 8 days of Christmas Markets, not just the 3 days at “The Mac”, but Brian, ever optimistic, does not want to run out of product. We don’t have an inch of spare space, it took awhile to pack it up. It was a gorgeous fall day and we were outside for most of the afternoon, today is grey and rather chilly, so everyone is lounging around inside. Willa arrives shortly, then maybe they will be wanting to go out and play. We leave tomorrow morning, so no daily blogs, unless Tristum puts up posts – he usually does. Our dogs aren’t impressed, they did not see room or beds for them in the truck. Roger always worries when we leave.

Somewhere during the great ‘Cat Fiasco’ yesterday, Wilson lost his collar. One would think it would be easy to find, but it must have gotten lost either in the long grass, which means we will find it in the spring, or under the deck, in which case it may be lost forever. He could have got hung up attempting a deck dive, looking for the cat. They were out for early morning sniffs today, hoping for another pussy adventure, but it didn’t happen. Smart cat. Eazy wasn’t really into the early dawn adventure, he went outside to see, but didn’t run around with the others. Boston, being an old man never moves till breakfast is served.
Hmm, this caused great excitement. All the dogs were out when a cat appeared from somewhere, probably had been moussing, all 6 dogs were outside, so it was quite the incident. It must have ran under the deck, because everyone was trying to get under the deck to get at the cat. That would have been a wild thing, probably a few would have got stuck, lucky everyone seemed to know or remember from past experience “Don’t go under the deck”. Cat managed to get up a tree and is still hanging up there, in spite of the dogs all being inside. Hopefully it screws up it’s courage soon, comes down and zips out of the yard.

Eazy and Wilson are our only guests right now and they both seem to be enjoying the extra attention. Eazy and Deezy were helping me make turkey soup yesterday, guess they make great assistants, soup was delicious. I had to run up to Nakusp yesterday to pick up my paintings (I sold 4 during the 3 week show – Thanks Studio Connexion), what a beautiful time of year to drive up the Valley. Snow was creeping down the mountainsides and it is certainly time to get winter tires on. Still up to our ears in packaging and labeling product for Fort Mac Trade Show with Salt Blendz. We leave on Tuesday and I am excited about going, never been to Fort Mac, hope we come home with a lighter load of salt than we are leaving with:) Lots of action at the Inn these days, getting ready for winter, art shows and markets. Don’t panic over the last pic with snow. Brian and I were talking about the first snow last year, wondering the date- then up popped this old photo from last December, so I thought I would put it up:) Have a great day folks.

He is missing his playmates Bobby & Taz. Eazy is pretty relaxed and not into playing 24/7 like Wilson. The first day, Wilson was so tired he slept like a rock all night. Last night he was looking for action. There was snow on the hill across the river this morning. Mother nature was kind to me, she kept the clouds low, hiding the snow until it mostly melted. Eazy has eased his way into the bedroom, he slips in and we all pretend he is Boston, and ignore him. He lays very quietly beside the bed, hoping to keep up his Boston disguise, then nestles in for the night. We try to keep the bedroom for our dogs, so they get some alone time from the guests. Eazy’s ruse is working very well.
Blue came for a Meet & Greet yesterday and she must have been a ‘fast dog’, cause all the pictures are blurry or have half a dog. I was in town picking up Salt Blendz stuff, with the ‘boys’ (aka Deezer & Roger) when Blue arrived.
Here is our family. Wilson arrives today as well, he missed the photo shoot. Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday wherever you are.
For a dog who was very shy, she is like a teenager on her first time away from home! No stopping her, well except for right now, she is snoring beside me, she is pooped. Bobby arrived and Tazz went to play with Jake and Bobby. It was a long and endless game of tag. Eazy gave it a go, but decided he would rather hang out inside and test all the furniture, to see if one was ‘just right’ for him. I am off to Salmo today for a few hours to visit my real kids, as opposed to the fur faced ones. Brian is staying home to look after pups and do Salt Blendz stuff – Fort Mac is quickly approaching. All these labs just make me laugh, they ALL still want to be right beside me, so my area is usually very crowded.
