Yesterday I trekked down to Longmont to spend the day with a dear friend from Ca. Her brother lives there and he is a dog breeder so whenever he wants to travel he has my girlfriend come out and stay at his "spread". I'm not quite sure what to call it, it's not a ranch or farm but more like a very old grand home with 250 acres and 15 dog runs. In fact, the city of Longmont is developing several lakes on the property making it a Wild Life Refuge. Last year my girlfriend was here for 2 1/2 weeks and then another week. It was so nice because I still didn't really know anyone here and I was so lonely~I missed our quilting times together and also our in depth prayer times. This year she is dog sitting for three weeks. Yippee! Of course she is taking care of 11 Springers as well; in fact one is a pup that I helped whelp last February. I had never seen any animal give birth before, let alone help, so it was a wonderful experience. Yesterday we had such a fun day~we walked the dogs around the property letting them play. There is nothing like seeing 11 dogs flying through the air trying to catch snow. Then we went into town; we stopped at a christian bookstore which is the nicest I've seen here in northern Colorado. We stopped by several thrift stores and also had lunch. By the time we got back to the house I had to leave and try to beat the traffic. Next week I'm heading down to stay for a couple of days...we just don't have enough time when I'm there for such a brief period. We may even attempt to clean the house-which would be a lot of work since it is about 6,000 square feet but it is a way to bless her brother.
Have a wonderful day!
