  1. Official TD Photo

    February 4, 2009 by MyEye

    Michele Mauldin of Alamagordo NM donated an 8″ x 10″ photo of each passing dog/handler team from the El Paso TD test on January 25th.  (She was also our track-layer and gets the “stinky feet” award.)  The photo is such a nice prize!  Here we are:  Standing are Judges Jeff Shaver from Houston and Leslie Swisher from Albuquerque.  I think they are holding coup sticks?   I am on the ground (giving thanks) with a smiling Kip.  Every day is a good day when you’re out tracking, but when you pass a test, it’s an especially good day.

  2. Doing Damage on eBay

    February 4, 2009 by MyEye

    I always check eBay first — when I need something.  I got a great deal on some walkie talkies for the Obedience Club Tracking Committee, and found the Nikon D40x for a super price.  In addition to looking for what I “need”, I also always look at the Cardigan Welsh Corgi items — you just never know when something will become an item I “need”.

    Yesterday I cruised eBay and found this watercolor original:


    I said, “Self, this is too cute, and with the dragonflies, it is something our friend Shelley would love.”  So I bid on it, and some pesky person outbid me, so I bid again, and the pesky person did the same.  Suddenly it dawned on me that the pesky other bidder might be — Oh, no — not Shelley.  So I emailed her, and sure enough, she and I were pushing the price up as we both bid on the watercolor that was meant for her.  I’ve backed off and if any of the rest of you were trying to get it for Shelley, stop bidding!
