It's not only the Summer Solstice today but also it was Molly's 11th Birthday. It's hard to believe that she is 11 as she still runs like the wind and gets into trouble. You would think by now she would have learnt her lesson about getting into garbage, as some things in the garbage aren't good even though it smells so yummy. We always put the garbage on the counter but this time those chicken bones were just too tempting and she some how tipped over the garbage and ate the bones. Thankfully she is better and back to normal for her big day.
Yesterday Craig and I brought them out on the land for a run and swim and today I repeated it with them. Needless to say I have 3 very tired dogs on my hands tonight.

Craig and Hannah - taken yesterday
So many geese and ducks Blitz didn't know which way to look
Can't see what he's pointing at because it's behind the tuff of grass
In two days he pointed and caught 3 lemmings

For some reason today Blitz wanted to play and splash in the water. It wouldn't be a big deal but he has never done this before and the only thing that broke up his play were the 6 geese that landed in the same pond.
Past couple of days more plants and flowers have been blooming and with the warm temperatures coming this way we will see even more.
These are the same but just taken from a different angle
Soon this will be fully engulfed in purple

Hannah you're going the wrong way - look behind you!
King Eider ducks
Blitz came running down the road with geese chasing him - I wonder what kind of trouble he got into
I love this nose!
I never get tired of the scenery up here and today I sat for a good 1/2 hour on the ground and watched the dogs play, swim and hunt and just admired the view.

I made the dogs dinner tonight for Molly's birthday - on the menu was muskox ground, carrots, peas, apples and fresh parsley from my little herb garden. Needless to say the bowls were empty and everyone is satisfied.
Birthday dinner tonight
Good Night from the Birthday Girl
