Happy Solstice!

Best day of the year according to my father, who also liked crows and dandelions.  Is this a hint that he came from northern Minnesota?

And our best day because the photos arrived.  Raj is the only member of the household who did anything this year.  While the rest of us ate bonbons and read detective stories, he figured out Nosework.  This month he got his NW2 title, despite being stuck with me on the other end of the leash.  I keep trying to explain to him that humans are not too bright and need very obvious cues.  Pictures come from the vehicle search and containers.

Thank you, Julie and Allie.  Raj still has fun with his games, but he gets very German in Nosework and does perimeter searches–not anything I taught him.  He is a very good boy.
