  1. In the Mail and On the Ground

    February 17, 2009 by MyEye

    I love it when the mail box yields something other than bills — today was a good mail day.  Kip’s AKC Tracking Dog title certificate was in my box, Chase’s certified four generation pedigree was there (all I need now is the foreign currency money order to register him), some new stickers I ordered arrived — also part of the foreign tryst; the cute (eBay) watercolor of the brindle Cardi midst the flowers was in the box.  There were some client-related documents that I’d just as soon forget (so I will for at least this evening).  You’ll soon learn more about the stickers and the foreign currency money order — but you must be patient!

    The other great parts of today:  I’ve been helping a client with a bunch of cases and know nothing about the law governing two of the four.  However, today we enlisted the aid of two other attorneys who actually know what they are doing.  This is a huge burden lifted right before I go to Nationals.  The premium list is out for our VST “A” Match so our all-breed obedience club is on its way to offering an annual VST test in addition to our TD and TDX tests.  My Lady Lobos basketball team beat BYU this evening.  It was a wonderfully played defensive game which is actually terribly boring to watch, but they needed the win and got it.  At the end of the first half, the Lobos were up 18 to 11 — wretched!

  2. Lines Drawn on Chase

    I spent a lot of time last night poking and prodding poor little Chase to see where his joints were.  Following Carolyn’s skeleton from the Illustrated Standard, this is what I came up with.  the green lines are the median and the “thirds”,  the red lines represent Chase’s front and rear angulation, and the yellow lines are the extension you’d see if he was in motion.  Hopefully when Carolyn and Tom are here we’ll be able to get some video and pull some stills from it.  It would also be nice to have some stacked photos of him at 16 months old (today) to compare with this 9-1/2 month puppy photo.

    He’s such a cutie!
