Mollys Business
Molly is a Border Collie, that's me, living with her owner, henceforth known as Daddy, near the foothills of Washington states Cascade mountains.
   This is a chronicle of  my life with Daddy as I grow up trying to stay out of trouble while having fun and excitement.   Daddy says the trouble part comes naturally to me.
   I have a store that  we can offer you a huge variety of gifts and products for fun and daily living in affiliation with Cascade Business Partners.

During the month of Dec. I got to know Daddy more intimately and meet his family that I am a part of now
     I now am checking out my yard and it's boundaries, tasting and smelling things that are unique to my home.
It is pretty cold this month but Daddy keeps the house cozy
and warm.  I am finding all kinds of things like papers and pillow stuffings that Daddy doesn't like me to be chewing on and throwing things around the house and yard.  Daddy doesn't  think it is much fun.  I guess because he has to clean it up all the time.
   

   We don't think alike on some subjects I am starting to realize.  He says I will grow out of it but I am not so sure it so much fun.
  

   Daddy is always going outside to work on one project or another.   The most fun one so far is the big hole for his machine shed.  He started digging in the ground
to make the floor at ground level.  I mention that because for 2 weeks he went
out there to dig.  One of my favorite things is to dig and, apparently, Daddy's too.
We are a perfect pair since we both like to dig in the dirt but Daddy seems to get a
little irritated when I dig because he says I am under foot.  Geez Daddy, chill !
Soon the digging stopped and he started nailing boards together.  I don't really
understand what he was doing but I am not sure he did either.  Well, there are lots
of other things for me to do and check out.




 
                                                      Daddy built an agility jump for me.  He says lots of
                                                      Border Collies use them for exercising the mind and                                                                    body.  I tried it a couple of times.  It is sort of fun but                                                                      there are so many other things to see and do around
                                                     here that I can't get into it just yet.  Maybe when I am 
                                                     older and stronger.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                           For instance, Daddy cut down a big old dead tree that went thud !  Suddenly there were new smells and moving bugs that fascinated me.  I played around that for several days until Daddy cut it into firewood.

   I got my own door, thanks to Daddy.  Now I can come and go as I wish - except when he locks it.  I also got new tags to wear in case I foolishly run off and get lost again.  I won't tho'.  That first day was just a panic on my part.  I also got a chip in between my shoulder blades.  I am part of cyber space now.

     One morning Daddy and I went outside for our pre breakfast walk and
surprise !  There was a light dusting of snow on the lawn.  Just a smattering

here but lots in "our mountains".
     Daddy says there is a nice lake
in the gap between the two mountains you can see in the image.
Daddy has flown float planes and helicopters into that lake many times, even hosting, along with his brother and sister, several week long camping/party trips.  Music and a complete kitchen included.
     There is no way in there except flying or a nasty goat trail, as Daddy calls it .  It is a very quiet and private area but is a favorite among float plane pilots

 
I hope Daddy and I can share many adventures together.  I think we will.  He seems like that kind of guy.
