Last weekend our friend Kim Raleigh took Tuli and Salsa to Longmont, Colorado. It was little Tuli’s first show — she turned 6 months old on May 20th. The girls had an excellent time with Kim. For her de-butt, Tuli was Winners Bitch for her first 2 championship points. Tuli is one of the kids from the Elyan Bluefox N-Song litter (she is “Nothing But Flowers”). Susan Long, Cheryl Kienast and I bred beautiful Lowri to her son Kevin. There were 9 scrumptious puppies. So far, four of them have been shown and each of the four won points on his/her first day out. We are very proud of Romeo, Sara, Trewe, and, of course, our Tuli. We had a photo taken to commemorate Tuli’s first points. I’ll post it when it arrives. We’re still waiting for the photo of Salsa’s major win in Albuquerque. Next show may be Flagstaff.
Chase and Ellen herded sheep up in Edgewood this weekend. Chase is doing so well — tweaking the little things now. His next herding trial will probably be in early August.
Inca celebrated her 13th birthday. She is hale and hearty though occasionally has the “old dog vagues.” This time, it was her solid opinion that the dog door was not working so she had to pee in the kitchen. As soon as the little girls got home and raced out the dog door, Inca decided it was working again — funny old lady.
The office air-conditioning is not working and, of course, we are hitting 90 degrees each afternoon. Very miserable inside.
