Why it's been so long since the last post:Good Bye Dear Melon,
You were the best dog EVER! You were our first "baby". We became a family the day we picked you up. We will always remember how you used to boss us around, tell everyone who entered the house "the rules", cuddle when we needed it, protect us from everything you could hear, see or smell, try to sit on mamma's lap and S-T-R-E-T-C-H to put your head on dad's arm when we were in the car, chase every ball you could get your mouth around, find wiggle-giggle even if we hid it in the washing machine, and mostly how you made us feel important. We were "your people".

I know you told us in the best way that you could that you were sick and tired. We did everything we could to keep you happy and comfortable and in the end you made the hardest decision for us, a comfortable one.....you are our angel and you are missed.....



And as always: Life Goes On.....
and for us that means CAMPING......

Canoe ride.....on beautiful Broken Bow Lake.
Train Ride....at the park

The river is amazing. Only trout OVER 20 inches are "keepers" here. We can't wait to come back and have more time for fishing....

Melon was missed on this trip, she would have loved the car ride, the squirrels, the sleeping in the camper......Micron did enough napping for them both :-)

We saw a Golden Eagle and a Bald Eagle flew back and forth across the river near our campsite ALL weekend. They are amazing creatures!

And finally a video:



The next few weeks are filled with changes for us.....might be a while before I can post but I will soon!

Aww. I'm so sorry. I know how heartbroken you feel. And my heart is broken for you in many different ways. I'm glad you made it up to Broken Bow. I've heard so much about that place...
