FOR THE WHOLE YEAR
From Penni, Kip, Inca and Chase
2008 was a stunning year for us show-wise. All three of my dogs earned titles: a CD, an RN, and a CH, and they are ready to go for another CD, a TD, RA, and a CDX. Dog goals for this year include Inca’s CD and novice agility titles, Kip’s TD, last leg of his RA, and his CDX, and anything I can get Chase to do with even a modicum of control — basic obedience for the young brat, his TD, and continued agility.
I’m going to get healthier, and more organized both at work and at home. I’m going to throw “stuff” away or donate it. I’m going to take a trip just to take a trip — not to a show/trial/test — just go some place where my camera and I can wander happily.
I wish wonderful things for my children and my granddaughter, for my friends (both real and imaginary), for my clients — heaven knows they need something wonderful — and for the dogs and me. Winning the lottery would be over the top, but just having reasons to smile every day would be great. Since I believe we make our own reasons to smile, this part is up to me.
So, in short, for 2009, I’m wishing each of us happiness, kindness, friendship, and the best of health.
