The week in review in photos. A possibly new feature, let me know what you think.


My wife had Tully for 15 years.


Major snuggling with a stiffed animal we called Tully, and that we put Tully’s tags on


The week started off pretty tough. We lost our beloved Tully monster to cancer. He was 16. RIP Tully. We love you 🙁


Raven is just about to alert to a high while at Jamba Juice

Stella and I took Raven to get Jamba Juice for the family. Even though Raven isn’t our “Public Access” dog, we still take her on occasional, low-key trips as training exercises

Raven dunks her whole head under water


A sure sign of a successful, fun swim day at Nana’s

For the 4th, we packed up the family and the labs and headed to Nana’s for a full day of swimming and watching fireworks from her back yard. A great time was had by all!

9223683708_9ff07e47f7_oHad some time for Major and I to hit the trails.  I run with both dogs 4-5 times a week, but when we go over 6 (like we did on this day) Raven stays home.


For a little while, we will have 3!

On Friday we brought Astro to our house. He is another Canine Hope dog that is here for some extra training. We are working on his daily structure, place work, and some more scent training. You will be seeing more of him in the coming week. He will be here for awhile.

Finished off the weekend with frozen yogurt

Sunday was errands day. I took 3 different dogs on 3 different trips to get them all a little public access work, then we spent some time at home doing some scent training, and finally finished off the weekend with frozen yogurt at Menchie’s.

All in all, (with the exception of Tully) a pretty typical week.
