September started out with celebrating Labor day. We were excited to get a long weekend to work on the house and get the deck completely finished. The kids went to Red Fox Stables on Labor day. They were invited to come and watch a "horse whisperer" work with the horses and teach how horses think and why they think that way. They came home telling lots of stories and can't wait to try some things out on their own!
|Chris the trainer worked with Whiskey Girl... one of the stables most stubborn horses! Whiskey gave Chris a good run for his money, but in the end, Chris came out on top!|

We made the decision to put her to sleep before vacation so that we wouldn't worry about her. Diona took her while Meagan, Collin and Kaitlyn stayed home with the daycare babies. There were many tears shed. Diona brought Vixie's body home so we could let Sadie and Smokey smell it so they wouldn't search for her. It's amazing how they know. Sadie even had a hard time that day! She followed us around sharing our sadness.
We'll miss our gorgeous Vixie, but we feel better knowing she won't be in pain or confused while we're gone.
