1000 Islands DockDogs 2nd event of the season was held at beautiful Grass Creek Park on the St Lawrence River as part of the 21st annual Kingston Sheepdog Trials. We had another successful event with large crowds on all three days, and, only about 1 1/2 hours of rain the entire weekend!!! That is newsworthy!!! The sun actually shone for 2 days in a row!!!! It was hot, sunny, and there were lots & lots of spectators. This event had lots to see & do - from lumberjacks to a raptor show:





We had lots & lots of jumping dogs and high flying action!

Hi Auntie Heather! I know my Mum has been very sloppy in not keeping my blog up to date . . . .something about classes with me, going to the woods with me, stuff with friends . . .you know . . . .life seems to be getting in the way!!! I promise to have a talk with her, though, and try to get her back on track . . ..I have heard her cursing this blog program many times when she's working on it, so maybe she doesn't like it very much . . .I'm not sure. Anyway, I'll keep buggin her to get it updated. I know she LOVES checking out your blog - you are very, very good at keeping it up to date . . . .Mum should take lessons from you!!

Keep up the great work - we love your blog!!!
