This and that

First I want to share my exciting news.  Star and I have passed our UTDX (Urban tracking dog excellent) test which finishes her Tracking Championship....so awesome.  We have been working for three years on this with a few ups and downs and it was so nice to pass.  There are approximately 30 Tracking Champions in Canada.
 
I had a blast watching the kids play on the dog agility equipment at the end of the test.  They put the goats in there to keep the grass down.
 
 
A few of the flowers blooming right now.
 This variegated lilac is very pretty but has no scent, I was a bit disappointed by that when it bloomed for the first time.

 My crab apple tree has never looked better, hardly any tent caterpillars this year, must be the cooler spring.
And lastly my SAL June pin cushion is complete.
Hope everyone had a great weekend :0)

Update on Ben and spring flowers

 
 
I'm sorry for being slow with the update, I know people have been asking about how he is doing.
Here is Ben just almost three weeks after his surgery.  His stitches our out and the cone is off.  He is much happier with out that cone on (and so am I, sleeping with him beside me at night was a tad uncomfortable, lol.)
He had a lot of adjustments to make and was quite unsure and very needy in the beginning but he is getting there.  Every day gets better.  His tumor was also benign which was really good news.
 
I got my May project done for the SAL, not much else to do with this rainy cold weather :0)
A few pictures of our cherry blossoms.  I just love this tree in the spring


 

And our new addition Cal.  He is nine weeks now.
Reed is the best babysitter!  He is so good with him.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend and Mother's day.
