Default Today was Canada Day

Every year I take one of my dogs to Canada Day. This year it was Gypsy's turn. It is a great outing for them, lots of people and a lot of them bring their dogs. There is entertainment, games for the kids and lots of booths selling things.

Gypsy met lots of people and of course, a lot wanted to know what she was. I had to keep explaining she was 3/4 Poodle and 1/4 Golden Retriever but because of an Australian Shepherd way back in her grandfather's pedigree she turned out merle colored like her mother. She was very well behaved and greeted everyone by sitting. She is seven months old on the 8th of July.

I met my first Munsterlander, a beautiful black and white dog used for bird hunting. There are very few of them in Canada. Also, met my first Kelpie, a merle and white dog. I know they are not that rare in some areas, but the first I have seen around here.

Happy Fourth of July to those who live in the States.

Happy belated Canada day Doesn't sound like you had any firework. We have had 2 go off so far.
One year Rascal got fairly frantic because a couple of places set off numerous illegal ones.
This year is so dry I bet anyone setting off illegals ones will get heavily fined!

Fireworks were banned this year but we usually haven't had many in other years. There have been many fires started this year from lightning but they have managed to keep them under control so far. Our weather has turned colder with short rain storms all day yesterday and today which helps keep things soaked down. Back to wearing our heavy coats again when a couple of weeks ago we were going around in blouses and tee shirts. At least it has slowied the mosquitos down, not near as many now as the big hatches we have had earlier.

I had to google Munsterlander as I hadn't heard of this breed before, what a lovely dog! Tomorrow is July 4 but there have been sporadic fireworks going off most evenings this week--and the dogs are NOT happy and have been barking and barking so I am not looking forward to tomorrow at all.
