Ranger is Patiently Waiting for the Cyclists

Last week, we had the pleasure of hosting the USA Pro Challenge Bike Race that not only finished in Aspen but then went out of Aspen the next day.

It was so much fun seeing all the best cyclists in the world off the Tour de France.

The streets in Aspen were blocked off, so it was like a 2-day street party.

Lots of great energy.

Ranger is looking forward to his next cool event.

Kia meets Little Ranger

Ranger has his daily walks around town. Socializing is a good thing for puppies.

Here, he's just met Kia and thinks he's just like a big Teddy Bear.

Speaking of bears, we have two bears in our neighborhood. They're all over town, too.

Ranger loves Sammy

Sammy is the office dog at my daughter, Courtney's office at the Blues Jeans Bar.

As you can see, he's huge.

Ranger loves to play with Sammy and thinks they're about the same size!

Sammy is quite the sport and lets Ranger bite his ears (among other antics).

Summer is passing Quickly

Yes, time is passing by ever so quickly.

Don bought this cookoo clock in Switzerland this spring and it not only cookoos but all the little people move around.

The good news is that it goes to sleep in the dark so we're not awakened by the sound!

Ranger chilllin on the Gondola up Aspen Mt

Ranger and I have been going up Aspen Mountain for storytelling. Here he is chillin' on the Gondola going up Aspen Mt.

He has a great nap on the way up and gets off just fine but so far, we've been challenged getting him to "load up" at the bottom and top. Not even does he get coaxed by a cookie treat.

The story time has gone very well with wonderful families. Ranger behaves as well as 4 month-old can!!

Girls and Ranger

How darling are these girls with Ranger? After writing all morning and working on their books, we took a break in our week-long writing class to have fun in the playground.

Ranger came along to entertain the group--or was it the opposite situation? Loved this photo of 3 of the girls having a blast with Ranger. I don't know who tired whom out first!!
