Update on fire and picnic

The fire above Boulder is still burning, it has reached over 6,000 acres, over 140 structures burned.  It is still uncontained.  Our annual Golden Retriever Rescue Reunion Picnic was scheduled for this Sunday.  It has been postponed to the September 26th.   This gives you more time to get ready to come swim with the Goldens.

There is some good news, there was some rain today but it was only a little and not enough to put the fire out, it may have been enough to slow it down a little until the firefighters can get control of it.  More slurry bombers came in today, there are 9 aircraft working the fire now.  over 400 firemen.  But the winds seldom die down entirely in Boulder.   It is known as one of the windiest places in the US.   Those winds are keeping the fire from being controlled. 

Since we can not go run with our friends, we did get to go to the five mile park to run.   Stella had a good time, it was probably her first time out in the big outdoors running leash free.  She ran and had a good time sniffing in the brush and chasing birds in the tall grass.   She will certainly sleep well tonight.

Thank you for reading.

  5. We are watching the fires of Boulder on the News with mommie. Our hearts go out to the ones that lost their homes -- humans and pets.

    May the fires stop soon. Our mommie was in Colorado on the edge of the Prairie a few times, visiting our two legged sister. She said the non stop winds just about drove her crazy.
