I am behind.

Luna’s birthday was on October 7! Six people and six dogs braved the rain to celebrate Luna’s 13th birthday with a hike to Cutthroat Lake. Somewhere on my phone, I think, is a picture of all six dogs together but I think the camera lens was wet. It was kind of a foggy image. Still, all the dogs had a good time and I think all the people had good enough rain gear that no one was too wet. Except the dogs.

Yesterday I had a family photo session near Mazama and afterwards I took Luna and Molly up to the pass to play in the snow. Sky was on her own adventure so it was just the two of them for a change. There isn’t much snow up there but it’s a start.

The girl gang – Molly, Luna, Sky, Mary and me – went for a hike yesterday and I have lots of pretty pictures of flowers and trees and mountains. And I’ll post those later. But for now, here are three happy dogs celebrating snow in July!

What’s really remarkable about this is that just ten days earlier, Molly was bitten by a rattlesnake! It was a dangerous and scary situation. She went to the vet pretty quick and got the right antidote and other meds and before they knew it, she was back on her feet. This was her first big outing. She didn’t seem to be slowed down one bit. Amazing!

Methow Trails hosted the annual Doggie Dash race at the Town Trailhead in Winthrop on Sunday. It was great fun with terrific snow and good weather. There were three categories of races – Kids, Little Dogs and Big Dogs – and the ever popular costume contest. The Big Dogs category had the most entrants so there were three heats leading to an exciting final race. The prize for the costume contest is the much-coveted Golden Poodle – a traveling trophy. The winner has now won three times in a row!
