The Real Time Canine II

After spending 2 years writing the Real Time Canine, the adventure continues with The Real Time Canine II. Read along as I look for just the right puppy to continue the experience. After false starts with Tim and Jed, I am currently training young Tam, and Spot, which are both off to a strong start. Please visit the RTC II to read about training sessions as they occur.

The other color

I am a sucker for the color purple. I love, love, love it and was fortunate to inherit it in abundance when I bought my property. I went searching for it in the yard today, and here is what I found. Everything is in bloom right now, and in some cases, I am knee deep in purple. It's wonderful. All my favorite clothes are purple, my fleeces, half-zip sweaters and sweatshirts. All purple and I can't even throw them out once they're faded. Purple dog leashes, purple bedding, I even once got a purple rope bag as a Christmas present. Do you know how hard it must have been to find a purple rope bag?
Is color choice inheritable? Because my daughter seems to have recieved it from me. Purple is her strong preference as well.
This is Lavendar. Not only am I drawn to the color, but the smell is intoxicating. I hang it in my house, and run my hands threw it whenever I walk by. Can you find the bee in this pic?
We finally had enough rain this year for the Lillies, I mean Iris' to bloom...and bloom...and bloom.
and bloom...
Purple is the color of royalty. While I've never felt royal in my life, I can certainly understand why it's appropriate.
This bluebird pair is nesting just outside my back door. While not exactly purple, I thought they were close enough to be included. A bluebird pair!! How lucky am I?


  1. Wow, those irises are gorgeous!

  2. You're right, they're Iris' and what a tactful way you chose to enlighten me. Thanks, Janet.
