I was hoping the new, improved Surfnetkids Printables Club would be ready this week, but I still am working on solving one remaining problem. Stay tuned!
In case you missed last week’s topic, it was the Great American Solar Eclipse! Enjoy, and make sure everyone you love understands how to safely view a solar eclipse. NEVER look directly at the sun!
See ya on the Net,

Visit Resources (also on the main menu) for lots of great info on dog care, health and training. “A reliable recall, or ‘come when called,’ might be the most important thing to teach your dog. It can also be hard to teach, usually because we unwittingly sabotage the effort. But it’s simple! The trick is to be irresistible.”
