New activity for the girls

They even have chairs here.

Here in Kelowna we have a dachshund club which can be found by clicking here. I became aware of it just before we left last fall. I made a few posts over the winter, the girls with their Santa hats and photos and one video of them running on the beach. When we got home I was surprised to see an event at an off leash dog park ( that I never knew existed ) just this past Saturday the 16th. So off we went. The girls were shy at first but came into their own. It was good for them to be around another 15 or more doxies plus the few other dogs that come into the small off leash area.

You can see our girls hanging under my chair here.

They pretty much stuck together but did branch out a few times – even independently.

There were at least 15 doxies but no one counted. They never stayed in one place long enough.

A few times someone came in with a different breed. The doxies would run up and bark as loud as they could to sound the alert of an invader.  Our two are at the bottom of the photo.

A good time was had by all. We stayed for an hour and then the wind picked and we all got cold so off to the car and back home. We hope to be able to enjoy more of these activities as they come up over the summer.

I am ready to start my 6 – 8 hour days of just documenting and getting everything ready for the final year end tax. This morning Colin went to the lawyers to pay to get our year end registered in the BC court system. Other than 3 – 4 long days of menial paperwork and balancing the figures that was our last  big to do. I truly hope to have the entire thing completed by Saturday or Sunday so we can FedEx this to our accountant in Vancouver. They need a few days to put it all together for us, filing deadline is April 30th. They work with the personal tax figures as well as the company tax year end to create the final numbers so that we pay the least taxes possible.

Today was my first vein treatment ( right leg ). This was to be my second for this part of the year but I had to cancel an appointment because of the RV issues. I took off 59 cotton balls with tape ( which had to be done after three hours ) – there were others that were not taped, so lots of pokes in my leg, a big ouch.  So my left leg will be done the 17th of May. I don’t fancy wearing a thick thigh high elastic sticking in the heat for seven days but I have no choice. I am really trying to just take everything one day at a time.

I wish that I could. But after three nights of getting 8 – 10 hours of sleep I have just a bit more energy. As I say one day at a time or as they say in Mexico, poco a poco.

    I bet those other breed dogs were like “What the hell is going on” when they walked into that dog area!

    Looks like fun! 🙂
    It’s nice that there are chairs to sit and visit in.
    I agree with Jim and Barb 🙂
