  1. Corpus Cristi Shows (day 1)

    August 9, 2008 by MyEye

    Chase-puppy is in Corpus Cristi with Sherri.  She just called to tell me he took Best of Breed for two more points and Best Cardigan Puppy.  Now he’s up to seven points with one major.  GO, CHASE-PUPPY!  I’ll report on the Group competitions when I hear from Sherri later today.

    ADDING ON:  Chase took a puppy group II.  The adult group had some heavy-duty contenders in it, but our kid showed well.  I’m proud of him.

  2. Tony’s Self-Sustaining Home

    August 9, 2008 by MyEye

    My youngest brother Tony lives in Louisiana where he and his wife Marie have built a self-sustaining home.  It’s made mostly of re-cycled materials, has no air-conditioning, uses collected rainwater.  They also run St. Martin Humane Center (though the PBS story doesn’t show their dog set-up).  As a nation, we’d better learn to live “greener” because we are running out of resources.

    If you’d like to view the PBS short about the house, here’s where to look: http://www.lpb.org/programs/swi/ and choose LWSI 3150 Environmental Architecture 08 Aug 08 (on the right side, choose 256K or 56K).
