That was the end of our Mexican holiday and now that we have been home two weeks life is back to normal. Buddy was extremely happy to see us, I believe he wasn't certain he was ever coming home (poor dog). He did have a great time at his sitters though, spending time with his dog mom and dad, and even got to play with his litter-mate brother. Our dog sitter emailed videos of him to us while we were away but I was shocked at how much we both missed him.
We have extremely hot dry conditions here and as of yesterday we are no longer allowed to water our lawns - Vancouver Island is on total fire bans and lake and stream fishing is no longer permitted due to low water levels. We are allowed to water trees, shrubs, gardens and flowers only in the evenings. To get away from the heat we walked the beach at low tide with Buddy today - there was a breeze so it was a very nice day to do it. Tonight due to high tide they are proceeding with a fireworks celebration (they shoot them into the ocean off a barge) for the 100th Birthday of the town of Courtenay. It seems like they should have done it on Canada Day July first but due to the tide today is the day with zero fire risk so we have plans with Mom to meet up and go watch them. Happy 4th of July to all my American readers and to everyone else, have a great weekend!
