|Max in camo, and soaking wet|
We knew it would happen this way of course, that we would go from Endless Winter to Sultry Summer. Temperature is supposed to be in the 90s today - ARGH! At least the house will have it's residual coolness, for awhile at least. Suspect I will spend the evening in the basement with the fishes, as the basement will stay cool until the soil around it warms up. I anticipate coming home at noon to water the grass seed - the lawn is coming back nicely from all the Japanese Beetle grub damage, but 90+ degrees of sunshine will be tough on all the tender new grass plants.
What I SHOULD do this evening is take Max to handling class. If I want to start showing him in June we have to work on his stacks. He stacks well if there are no distractions, but if a dog or person gets within his "kissing zone" it's a lost cause. Like his father Argus, Max is distractable, very friendly, and way too happy for his own good. He'll make a fine show dog some day, but no doubt I'm in for my share of embarrassment as he learns the ropes.
If all goes well, Max, Fernly & Gemma go to the Chicagoland Specialties next month. LOTS of training needed before then!
