Sunny days are here again!

We awoke this morning to glorious sunshine.  The beautiful sun called us out to the dog park of course.  And because it wasn't raining I got to take my camera.

 I really think these ducks thought Sadie might be coming along to feed them some bread crumbs.  She was memorized by their quacking.
 We've been trying to go through the woods, and on the trails.  Sadie loves ranging through the forest!
 Wind blowing through her fur at the park!

 Yes, we live in the most beautiful place on earth.

Muddy, tired still doesn't want to go home!  All in all a great day!

It's been raining like crazy here the last few weeks.  I'm starting to think a sunny days don't exist!  Anyway, the rain stopped enough today to go out and take some pictures.  We were in Langley, so we decided to hit the first dog park Sadie ever went to.  It's a great park, huge and fenced.  But with the rain, it was mud city.  And as you can imagine, this meant muddy dog.  She ran, she played, she rolled, she splashed, she got muddy! She has started to develop bravery around water, so she was wading through several large, deep puddles.  By the end of the trip she was starting to look like a black lab, and not a golden retriever.  As you can imagine, she was too dirty to forgo an after trip bath.  So now we are home, she is bathed and having a lazy post bath nap on the couch.

She's so big!

I cannot believe how big Sadie has gotten.  It's amazing to think a few short months ago we brought her home as this adorable ball of fuzz.  She really looks like a golden retriever now.  Although it's sad to see the cute puppy go, I am so thrilled with the amazing gorgeous dog that she's becoming.  She's absolutely beautiful, and her fur is like velvet.  She has also gotten more cuddly of late; opting to cuddle with me or Trav on the couch or the bed.  And since she is completely potty trained, we let her out of crate at night, and sometimes she crawls into bed with us.  I am always more than happy to snuggle! 

She has been having a case of the "wilful teenagers" lately, not listening as well as she was; but we are persevering, making sure we reward her good behaviour and ignore/manage the bad stuff!  Anyway here are a few photos of the last week or two.  We've been having some very cold/snowy/wet/rainy weather of late, which makes it harder to take the camera out, but I do as often as I can.
