My daughter, Melissa, is here from Texas and we have been enjoying her visit. She did great driving straight through the night, all the way here. I guess I wasted my time worrying! Although, (knowing me) I will worry once again, when she's on the road headed back to Texas! Anyway... Thankfully, she and her puppy dog, Emmi, arrived safely last Wednesday and will be here for a few more weeks.

The weather has been beautiful, which was especially great when we went up north last weekend! George's sister and her family have a cabin at Higgins Lake and we stayed with them, it was relaxing and fun. All the dogs got along very well, and from all the playing and swimming in the lake, they were exhausted! In fact, Izzie slept the entire drive home, then got right in her crate and slept all through the night and into the next day! I heard that Lacey did the same! I was a bit worried about Emmi and Izzie getting along, but it's going okay... They have their moments, Izzie likes to keep a close eye on Emmi and follows her everywhere... Emmi gets annoyed! Izzie is a Red Heeler mix, we don't know what she's mixed with, but the Red Heeler in her is definitely dominant. Heelers, a.k.a. Australian Cattle Dogs, are a breed of herding dog originally developed in Australia for droving cattle over long distances across rough terrain. Izzie loves to 'herd' and will gently nip at your ankles to get you to go where she thinks you should go. Emmi is not crazy about being herded! Emmi (a Yorkie/Maltese mix) is a free spirit and loves to chase critters and run where she wants to run! So... Small disagreements between the two ensue.

While we were up north we went to The Hartwick Pines Logging Museum in Grayling. A perfect day for a nice walk along the trails in the woods. It was fun to see how the Loggers at the camp lived, and it was great to enjoy a bit of logging history! It is beautiful there, here are a few pictures I took as we walked:
