Although my mother is growing increasingly feeble and is losing her vision, she loves going out to eat, and she made a large dent in all the food my sister helped dish up for her. Because we're never sure how many Holidays we have left, my sister and I try to share holidays with mom whenever we can.
The rest of the day was devoted to being a good Dog Mom. The sun felt good and Argus, Max and Fernly all got individual and interesting runs. Max went down to Hidden Falls where he remembered the pond he had played in several weeks ago. Still plenty of water in it, and lots of sticks to retrieve. He smelled a bit funky from the pond water but a quick bath took care of that. He's such a fun dog, always enthusiastic and entertaining, and continues to be good off leash.
Fern's run was on the college campus later in the afternoon. Not very many dogs or people, so she too got to run off leash. It was good to see that she's trotting more and pacing less, so hopefully she will make it to the show ring eventually.
Nothing like good food, family, hiking, fresh air and sunshine to tire you out and I slept like a rock.
Happy Mother's Day to me too!
