    We have clay and Fern roots up here. It's just a blast.

    Wheaten has more buff type colors I think. She looks part CLB to me too with her colors and ears. Colors remind me of a partridge pattern.

    Holm I am watching idol this season. I feel it's my duty to watch Keith urban as he is a fan of strawberry blondes and I am a fan of t-shirts.

    This is why you need a spud bar! It takes care of the pesky rocks and hard soil by breaking them to chunks then you scoop out the loose chunks with the shovel

    My poor lab pup broke a nail pretty far up tonight. Not sure what she caught it on. She was running about then suddenly, blood on the carpet.
    I had to nip off the dangly bit and she yipped and curled into the little ball in my lap and tucked her tail deeper than i have ever seen...
    I don't care if I look big and tough I will admit that was almost enough to bring a tear to my eye. I sat and just rocked her for a long time. She is so sad!

    Ouch! That it's water in my eyes. Imagine losing a finger nail! I've had a few partial toenail avulsions myself. No fun. Poor pooch.
