Thankful {things I love} Thursday...

 Archer Graduated from his 8 week Obedience Class .
We had such fun & the nicest group!
To help celebrate, we made a little gift bag of Archer's favourite peanut butter biscuits for everyone ♥ and a box full for all the doggies still waiting to find their 'forever homes'
 Not wanting to disturb Mum, this is the best pic I could get  ...
All is well in the nest (I check every time I'm upstairs in the studio) & can't wait to see the babes emerging...
 We were afraid we'd lost our Purple Sand cherry last year.
The large Maple in our yard was taking all the sunshine.
We hoped a good trim back of the dead wood would do the trick & it did!
 I love these delicate blossoms ...
 Yesterday, butterflies were fluttering about through the branches ♥
 In daily life
we must see
that it is not happiness
that makes us grateful,
but gratefulness
that makes us
happy

Congrats Archer. Obedience class is the best way to bond with your dog. It makes them more confident too.

Cute post! Love your dog and his name!
Am curious as to where you live where there are so many varieties of birds!
Thanks again for visiting!

Archer is a lucky, lucky boy. I love that he gets his "favorite" treats for graduation. Sorry about the tree- isn't it sad to lose a tree.
