Pepper is my friend's dog, and he loves coming to the property. I looked after him for a few days in May, but unfortunately since then, he was diagnosed with a malignant tumour. I was with Gail when the vet discussed Pepper's prognosis and on the way home, we decided to put this warm-hearted dog on "palliative care" and let him enjoy life while he was still comfortable. So anything goes: rolling in mud, eating favourite foods, and lying on our furniture is fair game. I looked after him last week while Gail had to go to Spokane and we had a great time.

The best news is Roger is heading home on July 16th (coincidentally the 34th anniversary of when Roger proposed) and he'll be in Idaho on the 18th. Hopefully he'll be here for a month of boating and having family and friends visit...this place just isn't the same without him.
I'm still coaching, Ryan, a lovely 13 year old girl that I work with each Wednesday at the Sandpoint Library and I'm also doing a travel slideshow at the library on July 12th, entitled, "Expat Escapades"!
Hope everyone is enjoying the summer and that you had a great Canada Day and 4th of July!
