A Beautiful September Day

Monday was another warm, beautiful day--the kind we should have had in the Summer, but at least we are having Summer, now that's it's Fall!! Dave came up on Sunday and we gave Duffy a bath outside.  He's happier outside and it sure saves my back and knees, as I'm not kneeling by the bathtub for an eternity. He didn't loose a lot of hair during the bathing, but afterwards, when we brushed him...yee gods!! Will this shedding ever end? Outer long coat, soft undercoat. On and on!!! In the past 2 months, I think we have brushed enough hair for 2 other dogs!! Anyway, here he is in all his glory.

In the afternoon, we went to the vet and therein lies another tale. I go to the Edmonton Holistic Vet Clinic, but they are just about as reactionary and behind the times as the rest of the vet clinics.  I have a sneaking suspicion that I might just end up opening a training school for dogs for those owners who don't want to have their dogs vaccinated, especially when useless vaccines like bordatella are being required. I am very frustrated with this. I wish I knew of some other folks around this area that didn't vax.

Setting this aside, it was a glorious evening with a most colorful sunset.
