Cool May

We have been having uncharacteristically cool weather these past few weeks - lots of rain and clouds and temperatures in the low 60s. Mom and I have still been doing our morning walks and a little agility training and some gardening. The front flower garden is starting its third year and the perenials are really getting big. Looks pretty lush behind me, right? Guess it is all that rain! In the backyard we have the fish pond garden. It doesn't get a lot of sun so mom always used to fill it with impatiens for the summer. This year she decided to try to get a few perenials going because I use the garden for a zoom path from the gate out into the yard when I am chasing motorcycles or loud cars or the mailman!
All of our flowering trees bloomed up a storm this spring but strangely enough the azalea behind me skipped blooming this year altogether!
You can just barely see my weave poles in the background. Lately I have been skipping the fourth pole regularly - I think I am in a hurry to finish and get my reward! Mom is worried that I am developing a bad habit. So today we practiced teeter and then jump chutes - with mom running with me, then leading out, then calling me over them, and then sending me. Sending is the hardest for us, but I was doing pretty well overall.

Gotta zoom!
