    Our early teal opener is less than a month away. Mattie earned her Hunting Retriever (HR) title this summer. Can't wait to watch her work.

    Lots of (slow) walks in the near future.

    ^^^ Our Springer is coming up on 13 and the walks have slowed way down. I like it. The rest of my day usually moves too fast.

    Yep.
    Chelsea will be 11 this winter, and summers are always tough for her (check that coat). She will walk all day, just at her own pace, with a few spurts of young-dog energy mixed in. It's actually a good pace for my three small kids currently, though they're aging in opposite directions, speed-wise.
    Probably hiking Great Falls this weekend.

    Flame Retardant Replacement Toxic To Cats
    That's awful, we need to say no to all fluoronated, halogenated, brominated, and even phosphorus-based flame retardants and stain repellents. This crap is toxic, bioaccumulative, endocrine-disrupting, cancer-causing, and immunosuppressive. Seriously. It's legal to put this stuff into things we buy (like bluesign® label baby pajamas and my Eddie Bauer Men's Guide Pro Pants) even though it's proven to cause thyroid and kidney cancer, and transfer into babies' bloodstreams through salivary and even sweat contact. The most benign, and insidious, way this stuff enters our body is through dust from all the fabric, upholstery, carpet, and clothing that contains it.

    And the industry response is that once a chemical is proven harmful, it's simply redesigned. Like C8 to C6 (it's a chemistry thing), and reintroduced to the market. Rinse and repeat. So the right answer is to ditch the whole class of chemicals. And to realize that the fire-retardant "benefits" are bullshit, and maybe it's OK to have to wash your guide pants after spilling coffee on them, or wash your baby's bib after they puke on it.

    My apologies if I was too preachy on the subject of toxics.

    So here's a photo of Sprocket, the #cinnamonwondermutt , modeling boats for a recent photo shoot.



    She's pretty good with mountain bikes too.

    Well, everyone in this house is good with Sprocket. So don't worry about the preaching ...
