The trip home was uneventful. Gavin is a great traveler, extremely alert and inquisitive and not afraid of any thing. He's more fun than we even imagined and keeping us on our toes every waking moment. My favorite is when he brought me the door stop he had removed from the baseboard. How's that for his first retrieve? He also picks up his dinner bowl and brings it to us for a refill.
I went to take some pictures of Gavin touring Craig for the 1st time but our camera had a malfunction. The only pictures of him were last night. We'll get a new camera and get some to you later. Thanks for watching him for the last two weeks, we appreciate all that you have done.

I’m still enjoying my clicker training and have added ‘heel’, ‘fetch’ and ‘step up’ (the motorhome steps) to my bag of tricks. It’s still a little scary to ‘step down’ the RV steps – maybe when I’m a little bigger than my now 5 ½ pounds. Mom & Dad still keep me going over all of the old skills just to keep me in practice. My ‘sit’ has improved to a big girl sit instead of my old ‘lazy puppy’ sit. I’d do just about anything to keep those kibble treats coming my way!
Today was another FIRST in my adventures – the BEACH. There was a bit of fog, but the sea birds were out in force and it was great fun to see them fly out of my way. There were also a lot of fun sand dunes to climb and I just LOVE to climb to the tops of any hill. The view is soooo much better from up high. The smells, too! I hope you enjoy these pictures even though I keep acting a pointer when I’m doing something new.
I’ll write again soon. In the meantime, I’m sending hugs your way. Cassie

Spring has finally come to the Great White North...
As you may or may not know Hockey is the sport of choice in Canada so Canadians spend most of the time they are not covered in snow cheering for hockey and this other odd sport that I just will never understand curling... If you have ever come across it on the sports channels it just has to be right up there with watching the grass grow... I do however have to credit there Kelowna Rockets (which is where Lexi lives now) with beating our Tri-City Americans in the first round of the WHL play off's.
Here you will see Lexi and her favorite buddy Tess trying to get the grass to grow and a quick sip of water for Lexi. The other picture is of the neighborhood children trying to teach Lexi to play the Canadian National sport of Hockey. Tess's mother Corrine has threatened me with buying a Rockets jersey for Lexi but as I have explained she is an all American and will not stand for such punishment!
I do want to continue to thank Corrine, Brent and her two daughters for taking such great care of Lexi.. Happy Canadian Easter today as well EH?!
