Here at Brighthope, Picardy Park belongs to the dogs. We have open pit mining courtesy of Allure, the forestry is handled by Eclat, Ciron is in charge of perimeter security, Dapper stands around asking if anyone needs help (and then does nothing) and Arine just runs and runs and runs.
So the puppies learn at a very young age what fun it can be to go to Picardy Park.

Snowplowing for "critters" under the snow
What goes in the mine
must come
Lumber Jack in training
Run and run and run, where's Arine
It is quite obvious that Picardy Puppies love Picardy Park.

Sunday March 17th turned out to be a great day for a visit to Brighthope. I can always count on Kim and Susan for some puppy socialization. The sun was shining and I took full advantage of the extra hands to carry the puppies out to Picardy Park.

Susan was trying to get some close up pictures of the puppies I think.

And Kim was just getting close up to a puppy.
Anyway between the three of us we did get some good pictures. So as times permits I will post them.

The puppies are certainly enjoying their outdoor time, now that the weather is a bit warmer. Time seems to slip by very quickly and it seems in no time the puppies will be on their way to new homes. Of course by the time you get all the puppies outside and then have playtime and then gather them all back up to come in, clean their inside kennel and get them all fed!!!! whew!!! It is no wonder time seems to fly by.

OK I should not do my blog when I am in a hurry. Laurie and Lily got a FREE coffee. Does my previous blog make sense now. I can't blame this one on the little men !!


Laurie and Lily decided they did not like playing "roll up" any more (something about "please play again") so they went to McDonalds and got a few coffee instead. I wonder if Lily will still try rolling it up??
