    Shelley just emailed that Chase was again Winners Dog, Best of Winners and Best Opposite Sex to Dolly for another two Canadian points.  We’re getting there!  I’m so grateful to Shelley for putting up with the puppy brain in the grown-up body.  Another show tomorrow . . .

    I have only one Grandchild.  Adrienne is 7-1/2.  She began taking formal piano lessons the first of the year, though she has a piano at home and had learned a great deal from her mom.  Today was her first recital.  I drove to the other side of town to enjoy the show . . . and here it is.  Remember, this is my blog so I’m allowed to dote!

  3. Transferring the Loot

    I went to the office this morning and sorted through Kip’s file.  I put all his ribbons and rosettes, certificates, tags, photos, microchip information in a FedEx large envelope (those envelopes come in so handy).  I had washed some of his favorite tug toys.  Then I came home and packaged up chicken backs, necks, and a chub of ground turkey.  Jill came to get everything because we decided, to give Kip time to adjust to his new home, I shouldn’t go to their house for a few weeks.

    Jill said that Kip is putting a lot of energy into keeping the family members together.  His herding instincts have kicked in and he is concerned about this flock that is constantly going in different directions.  Jill said he checks in with each family member on a regular basis. Molly is wagging again — undoubtedly amused by the short-legged guy who is trying to take over the house. I am so happy for Kip — he’s already created a job for himself and he is making his people (and a recently sad dog) happy. Photos are promised . . .
