I received these photos from Amanda this morning. The “tube” beads I sent her simply were not large enough to slip onto the kangaroo braid. Of course, she had some very acceptable alternatives. I cannot wait to pluck this from my mailbox and clip it onto a show collar 🙂
This lead is laid on a standard sized paper plate — to give an idea of scale.
The turquoise is natural brown matrix turquoise, with silver beading on kangaroo braid — three strands of black with a single strand of whiskey worked in. Definitely designed for a Southwestern Cardi.
The official photographer (Adrienne) hasn’t been to visit me for three weekends so this is the first chance we’ve had to take some stacked photos of Holmes (other than the one taken by a classmate at conformation drill a couple of weeks ago). We were having trouble getting ears this morning — probably because there is a wind machine blowing in the kitchen and the house is turned upside down during the flood repair, and most dogs are crated because a neighbor complained about the barking — sigh! Those are the microwave and coffee maker in the background, on a table in the living room.
So, here are three representative photos. They will at least give you an idea of how the baby is looking these days. Still a very cute baby I think!
This is one of Holmes’ favorite toys. Although from time to time it strays under furniture, he generally keeps very good track of it. If he can’t reach it — wherever it ended up — he comes to get me and shows me where it is. Turn off the sound, ignore Chase’s forays through the video, and enjoy the mindless happiness of a puppy!
I am past sixty-five and still practicing law. I have two terrific sons, they have lovely wives, and I have one truly special granddaughter. At home are three Cardigan Welsh Corgis that amuse and challenge me. We participate in lots of dog-related activities. I love my camera, writing, and roaming. I live in central New Mexico because it's where I want to be. Thanks for visiting my blog. Your (tasteful) comments are welcome.
