"Allison" Athlete of the Week 8/29-9/4

Allison is an amazing leader. She is 3 years old. She is extremely shy and
incredibly sweet. She has a very fluffy tail that wags when she is excited to run. I am very exited to see her perform when the snow falls, I know that she will be a "big dog" in my team.

A Great Day of Fishing!

2 White Kings, 5 Halibut, and Dungeness Crab
My 35# halibutThis is the first basket brittle star I have ever seen. It is really cool. Josh brought 3 of them up at different times on his fishing pole.

What a fantastic day to be out fishing with Jen, Robert and Josh. . . We returned with a bounty of seafood! It was really nice that Robert took us out fishing. It was a lot of fun and the first time this summer I was able to go fishing.

"Hurley" Athlete of the Week 8/15-8/21

Hurley girl as I call her is a very wonderful "gee-haw" leader. She is good at directing other leaders that she is pulling with. At 8 years old she is the oldest dog in my team. She really enjoys being scratched behind the ears and love to have her coat brushed. She can be shy toward others when they are new to her.
