Staying cool

It's starting to get hot already, which means the pool comes out and everyone learns where all the cool spots to sleep are (including the basement where a few of the dogs are more than happy to follow me into so they can nap in one of the kennels).

Hello!  I'm Mike, the new apprentice at Applewoods.  If you see an English Mastiff running around the yard, that's my pup Sherpa.  We went through Margot's Boot Camp a year and a half ago when Sherpa decided she should start trying to eat other dogs.  She's come a long way since then and now she gets to spend most of her days running around the yard with all the day care dogs. 

Here's some pictures I took of JoJo, one of our board and train dogs, hanging around the yard on Saturday.  I still can't believe I took them with my iPhone!  Makes me wonder about spending all that money on my DSLR...

 Nice drool Sherpa...

A tail of 4 dogs

One afternoon 2 Dobes and their Ninja Yorkie taking time out for a nap.

All is well until the great beast enters the room and then what happened to the 2 Dobes and their Yorkie?  Somehow there just wasn't any room for them.  Were they, perchance, eaten?  Only the Shadow knows what lurks around the corner.
