Visitors From the West

July 30, 2009

Today Chase and Inca and I went to a nearby park to wait for Sandy and Bruce C.

Inca Waiting for Sandy 7-30-09

Then our company arrived.

Bruce-Sandy w dogs 7-30-09

The dogs loved our visitors — and they brought dog cookies . . . and fudge — oh, yum!  Sandy had gone to dog shows to watch Cardigans, but because they were all groomed and ready to go in the ring, she didn’t think she should pet them.  Can you imagine!!! This is the first time she’s hugged a Cardi.  Chase and Inca are definitely top flight candidates for hugging.

Bruce and Sandy are working on their retirement ranch in Corona NM (No!  Beer is NOT bottled there.).  Day after tomorrow, they will wander over to The 7MSN to see Carson’s critters.  I think, the ranch work aside, they are having a good visit. Sandy took some great photos of Chase cleaning Bruce’s face — can’t wait for them to show up on her blog.

    Oh no! Don’t introduce them to such BAD little dogpeople! They may run screaming…

    PS Penni I will call you or write after a couple days, just trying to get thru this week. Pie sends love!

  2. Yea for visitors, esp through blog networking! Sad she’d never hugged a Cardi before, but as first Cardi hugs goes, it doesn’t get much better than those two!

    Note to “the public”. It’s ok to hug our kids at shows, just not as they’re going into the ring. Just ask and I’ll tell you “when”.

    But be prepared for wet kisses.

    What lucky people that thier first Cardi Lovin was from 2 such wonderful ambassadors. Good job. But, I will say they look too young to be working on the retirement ranch!

      I can’t tell you how jealous I am — 40 Acres in the mountains. They built a brand new house and a barn. Today they were plotting fence. Sigh!

    They sure look welcomed by the dogs & happy to welcome the dogs too

    These people moved to Corona??? !! My aunt & uncle, during the 70’s foremaned a couple of ranches in Corona. My family lived in Alb at the time and would go to visit on weekends, loved that ride down there! Wow I didn’t think hardly anyone knew where the town is….
