After finding a vet in Maryland (where we live) we took scout and the vet asked do you know what kind of dog scout is? We answered as we always do..." he's a mutt but we think golden retriever and something else". She proceed to awkwardly share with us (have you ever noticed how vets are so ackward with human communication but they are great with animals?) that she thought he was a nova scotia duck tolling retriever (http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&resnum=0&q=nova+scotia+duck+tolling+retriever&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=LFODSp-4OuTcmQeM3rihDQ&sa=X&oi=image_result_group&ct=title&resnum=1). And when we looked online we were excited to agree that that is our baby scout for sure! So now he is no longer our mutt/mini golden retriever but our nova scotia duck tolling retriever.
So after being married for four years and talking about how awesome it would be to have a grill and researching and researching some more we finally bought a grill! We went a little over board and bought tons of meat to grill out with and I think we have grilled out at least every other day maybe more. So that has been the big excitement for us this summer.
