    Woke up early and it was already 72 and humid!! I think we made the right decision for today we are going to visit my Mom after another 2 weeks of self quarantine to wish her a Happy 93rd birthday...we haven’t seen her since early March. The good decision is that it’s a 2 1/2 hour drive and we decided to book Cooper into the kennel for the day and his first over night! The kennel has heated floors in the winter and a/c in the summer, a huge fenced area to run and play, a doggy pool, she plays lots of games with the dogs to keep them busy. We were so impressed and I’m pretty sure Cooper would rather be there than in the car! They seem to do well posting pictures so if I get a fun one I will post it here tomorrow afternoon. Hope everyone is keeping well, I continue to worry about those living in the US., stay safe! xx

    Good for you, quarantining yourselves for two weeks to ensure your 93 year old mother can have a safe visit with her family! I am sure all of you will be so happy to see each other In person! Tell her happy 93rd from her friends at Sheltie Nation.
    I am sure Cooper will be fine and have a blast! Take care on your travels! Wear gloves when filling your tank with gas!

    I know what you mean about the heat...
    In Michigan we are up to 7 days of 90 degree weather and the next 3 days are forecast to be 90 as well!

    Enjoy your trip! Hoping Cooper has a fun first sleepover! Sounds like a great place to be! Enjoy your visit with your mom and happy 93rd birthday!!!!

    We woke up to 95% humidity according to my outdoor thermometer - only 75 degrees, but everything is coated with moisture like it rained, but it hasn't. Most humidity for our morning walk without it actually raining. Our hill is just encased in a big damp cloud.

    Have a wonderful birthday celebration with your mom, I know she will be so happy for the company! Sounds like Cooper is set up to have a blast at the kennel. We are such weather wimps here - rarely do we have humidity so if we get the least bit everyone melts. Supposed to be very hot here this weekend though.

    Safe travels!

    Enjoy the trip and the visit with your Mom! Cooper sounds like he's going to Doggie Paradise! Can I book in there too? It's miserable here, hot, humid, pouring and thundering at the moment. Even the dogs are limp. Be safe and Happy Birthday to your Mom!

    I hope all goes well on your journey and that the kennel experience is a good one. We are fortunate enough that Willow's breeder takes her dogs back whenever people need to board them. Willow had an absolute blast when we traveled to Ottawa for my son's wedding last autumn.

    It has been relentlessly hot here so I'm setting an alarm so I can get Willow out at six AM. Seven-thirty has been too late and too hot by the time we get back home. The heat just rolls in every morning. Due to the heat my wife will go visit her parents alone next week and Willow and I will stay home.

    We live in Paris, Ontario and Cooper’s kennel is in Scotland, Ontario. We drove up the driveway and saw 3 sheep in a pen and really started to laugh. Laura posted this picture of Cooper taken later in the morning. By the way you know this dog didn’t even turn around and say good bye to us he was in heaven...I’m crushed!! lol.


    Cooper says hello!!

    That's a beautiful picture Wendy, made me chuckle seeing Cooper checking out the sheep lol! What a great place to board, I see now that Cooper isn't going to miss you at all!

    It’s such a great place We are so happy to have found it. They said Cooper is a Star ha ha. They take them for a long walk as well as having a huge area for them to play and they did nose work and puzzles with him. It’s in the country the sheep aren’t theirs they rent out pasture to a neighbor...they also have chickens. We will definitely take him back there. That collar on him in the picture isn’t his I had to remove his collar and leash and they put one him as part of their no contact protocol. It looks huge! lol
