Stubborn as a mule? Stubborn as a 5 year old....

When Melody sets her mind to something, there's pretty much no going back. In many ways it can be positive, but from time to time, it's not fun. She's been unbelievably stubborn ever since she was 2 and a half. When she doesn't want to do something, it's woefully clear that there's no changing her mind. This time the annual trip to the Pumpkin Patch was the victim. Luckily Malcolm, Roger and Tracey enjoyed themselves. In other news, the surgery was a total success. Also, the teeth cleaning only resulted in one extraction. All in all the recovery process has been great, bouncing back quite well. As for the growth, the Vet believes it to be some sort of Melanoma. I don't think Roger and Tracey feel like it has to get tested, especially since it's now been removed. The eyelid will take about 10 days to heal, when the sutures have to be removed. Anyway, here are some recent pictures from the Pumpkin Patch: untitled-1.jpg untitled-3.jpg untitled-4.jpg untitled-6.jpg untitled-7.jpg untitled-9.jpg Malcolm appreciated it.

So, in other news, Malcolm and Melody leveled up and got their high white belts this evening. They practised their form and broke a board to successfully pass. Tracey and Roger were very proud of their achievement. Here are some pictures.


Behind on posts.

I'm severely behind on posts this month. Past is the blood moon, thanksgiving gone like the turkey, the leaves on the trees are a changing and we all march on toward the next big semi-holiday... Halloween. Oh, I'm also going in for some minor surgery this Friday to take care of a growth that's been on my lower eyelid for over 2 years. Unfortunately, over the past few weeks it looks like it's growing in size. The vet wants to remove it, just in case it's melanoma.

The "Blood Moon":

Roger's Trap Shoot Shootout Fall Invitational went off without a hitch. Even though the pineapple express rain storm was scheduled to blow through the tournament was a success. Roger even ended up winning top prize. untitled-1.jpg Lots of fall photoshoots these days with the onset of Autumn. Here's a collage with Jennine and the girls. It's amazing to see how much the girls have grown. Trenholme Collage Here's thanksgiving. Oh and two amazing Northern Flickers that were perched on the garage, doing the mating dance. untitled-5.jpg untitled-1.jpg untitled-2.jpg untitled-3.jpg untitled-7.jpg untitled-8.jpg
