Here I am with my brother Hopkins.  We had so much fun playing together at Derby Reach one day when there was a PADS playdate.  My house got invaded by a zillion flowers!  For the past few months Mum and I have been very busy going all over the place asking for donations for the High Tea and Fashion Show.  United Flower Growers donated enough flowers to make centrepieces for all of the tables at the event, and for all the ladies to take some flowers home with them.  Anyway, we were very happy that the event turned out beautifully.  I thought that I had seen the end of flowers for a while, but as soon as the high tea was over Mum and I had to go back to nearly every nursery and bring home even more flowers.  I thought I was being helpful by digging a hole in the lawn so she could plant a flower there, but Mums are funny sometimes and don’t appreciate one’s efforts!!  She has covered up my hole with a lawn chair!!  We have also been busy working on some of the little issues from my assessment.  Mum was so proud of me one day – I was practicing heel in a tight spot at the mall, and also practicing standing from sit without moving my front feet forward.  Just as I stood up a working dog (not PADS) came around the corner and almost ran into my face.  I was very calm about it and didn’t even try to join in the playfest that the working dog tried to start.

Well, I have to go now, as I think Mum and I are going for a walk and another trip to the garden shop.  Happy planting…
