Today’s visit went awesome.  Since it’s been awhile, I wasn’t sure how they’d respond to me.  I knew Trace would be fine as I remember she’s a very typical happy retriever who loves PEOPLE!!!  Wish my female retriever was like this, but she’s atypical and I still love her anyway.  🙂

Anyway, Trace could hear me in the house and was telling me she was outside!  I assume Loki could hear me too, but he’s a quiet boy.  I fed Trace in her pen and Loki outside.  Boy, did he dawdle with his food….picking a few pieces to place outside and slowly taking bites from the bowl.  Sheesh!  As soon as he finished, I let Trace out and we all went to put the bowls back in the garage.  Afterward, Loki scoured the back fence (the kiddo was outside playing with dad) and Trace and I worked on our retrieving skills.  She’s very adept at it and I was happy to see her “give it back” nicely.  Good work!  I did the same with my female retriever.  We continued retrieving (while Loki patrolled) until she was tired.  Then I gave them some chews and bade them good night in their kennel.

I couldn’t help seeing your new nursery.  It’s on the way to the garage, so I had to step in and gawk.  🙂  Love the furniture selection!!!
