Corgi fun

It was a fun day at a local dog show for Catcher- the 20 month corgi who was entered in Rally Obedience and then Breed.   He loves to strut his stuff, so marched obediently in rally-- and then was "whisked" off to the breed ring  (carried so that his white paws wouldn't get muddy.)   He got a "Q" in rally, and won Best of Winner and Best of Opposite in Breed-- meaning he was the best male corgi there.   When he came home, he posed on the steps-- a little tired but very proud!

Memorial Day Gardening

Today was a crisp sunny Memorial Day, with blue sky, a northwest wind, and whisper of  Portland Maine's (hopefully) last frost tonight.  The potted veggies and herbs were loaded on the wheel barrow to sleep in the garage .   Hopefully this will be their last stay inside, since their roots are waiting to soon meet the garden soil  so their stems and leaves can stretch and grow.
