She IS part duck, isn't she???

I know I watched her fish tennis balls out of the pool and thought WOW!!! 

Oliver doesn't like getting his face wet, he's funny, when we go into the lagoon he has his own doggie-float-vest, it's cool! If he's not wearing the life jacket he tries to climb out onto your head, which is NOT much fun with a dog of his size!!!

asy :D

Hey Jeff,

I can't remember since it has been almost 20 years since I have lived in Michigan, but how far is Harrison from Traverse City?  I remember working on a crew to build some townhomes on top of a hill in Boyne City back in the end of 1989.  We stayed in a nice A-frame cabin on a lake, and went fishing every day at lunch and after work on the Boyne River.  I loved the Polish boiled dinner that my coworker and friend made with a steelhead that I caught there in the park at the entrance to the Boyne River.  We also caught a lot of salmon there.

Oh, those were the good old days when I was fit an full of vim and vigor.  Time sure does fly...

Its probably a good two hours away.  Tammy and I ate in Traverse City last weekedn. We took thelong scenic route home from the cabin down around the cost from the bridge to Traverse City, then across through Cadillac and on home.  Usually a 3 hour trip took almost 7.  That area is one of the most scenic in all of lower Michigan.

Yup, my Sister lives in Weidman, and we used to do a bit of fishing at six lakes. Not too far east of Lakeview

6 miles east, to be exact.  My grandparents lived there and that is where I deer hunted most of time.  My grandparents are now both gone, but my uncles still live there.  One still is on the 20 acres that my grandparents had, and the younger one recently purchased 10 acres right down the road in the same block with just a couple of parcels between them.  I miss that land a lot.  Killed my first buck there on opening day of '85.  Got 3rd place in the local contest with that big bodied deer too.

There are a LOT of deer between there and you.

Great video, Jeff!  I had a heeler years ago who loved to fetch bucket lids.  My brother was taking care of things while I was gone. He thought the lid would float, and tossed it into the pond.  It sank, and Blue dived after it.  He was gone long enough my brother began to think he had drowned my dog.  He said when he resurfaced with the lid, the dog blew water 3 feet in the air out of his nose. :D

Icey is almost 5 years old now and actually showing some signs of slowing down. This morning she's just lounging in one of the computer chairs, the only chairs she is allowed in, watching Tammy make breakfast. :)

I'll bet she can move fast if Tammy drops a piece of bacon on the floor!

Yep, I know, seems like only a couple years.  She was born in December of 2005 and we got her in June when she was about 6 months old.

Wow, that IS amazing, I remember when you first got her!

Mind you, I just worked out that Oliver is going to be 4 in February, which is scary, too...

Wifey an I just watched Nova's Dogs Decoded on PBS. What a great epsode with lots of new and compelling research about our relationship with Our Best friends. Here is the link to the online website for higher bandwidth surfers.

The Murder Of Crows episode is another fascinating show
