    Forecast today a high of 102, tomorrow forecast a high of 79 with 50% chance of rain. And on Monday a 70% chance of rain with a high of 83. WOW!

    We sure could use some rain. I have been using Howard's recommendation to drill put stickmen in the dry hard ground. Also been putting rubber mats under the wingers to prevent a spark from getting to the grass (or look for bare spots). The ponds are really getting low and they could use about a foot or rain.

    Here in drought struck, fire plagued New Mexico, we have had a little rain almost every day this past week. Now they are calling for the monsoons to arrive. Maybe as much as 5" in the next few days. We'll take it! Overall the weather here is better than anywhere I've lived as long as you enjoy winter. Highs mostly in the mid 80's with cool downs to very low 50's at night. Now that the fire danger is contained, I plan to enjoy the heck out of the rest of the summer. That includes more than dogs. We will go backpacking, fishing, biking, etc in addition to working the dogs! Then when Thanksgiving rolls around, we will be ready to go back to work watching people play in the snow!

    Weather sure is weird of late. We are about to get back into that oppressive heat with humidity that is so common around here in the summer. Not probably not as serious as the weather down south but.. I dislike it immensely and it is so difficult to train in. Everyone keep safe this summer.

    I have my dog in training in Texas... I cant say this week the weather has been much better... We are HUMID for Colorado right now.. and HOT! Typically when we have this monsoonal pattern, it gets cool.... But this week its been in the 80s-90s with high humidity...She is making good progress down there, and my trainer seems to have the work ethic to get it done!

    Now this is Tejas weather. Feed air dogs walk to pond or pool depends on where you live in Texas. Dog places paw in pond or pool receives 3rd degree burns back to A/C repeat tomorrow. August in Texas.

    The river is cooler. I throw two easy marks and that's it. No way to do any serious training.
