  1. Ali — Chase/Magic Daughter

    July 31, 2010 by myeye

    This face says “pick me up and let me nip your ears.”  This is Ali (Wellshire Queen of Hearts).  It won’t be long until she’s out winning hearts (and ribbons).  I love being a dog-grandma!

  2. Playing With PS Elements

    July 28, 2010 by myeye

    I found a wonderful price on Photoshop Elements 8 (I had version 6). So, I bought it (I heart ebay).  I thought I would treat myself tonight to a few minutes with the new program.  You may remember the bronze iris that fascinated our Holmes-puppy in May.  If one applies the Filters ->Artistic ->Sponge to the photo, this is what you get.  Isn’t it cool?

    There will be a place to use this — maybe some homemade note cards?

  3. Magic/Chase Puppies – Luc Stands Guard

    July 28, 2010 by myeye

    Uncle Luc has decided to watch over the three puppies that are still with Paula and Eric.  Here he keeps track of Deuce (Two-Dot) on the back left, and Rosie (Sparrow) beside him.  Ali (Alice) is in front.  These puppies know how to relax on a hot summer day.

  4. In the Doghouse — Time for a Change

    July 26, 2010 by myeye

    My dogs are barking when I leave them at home and it’s annoying the neighbor.  Although I don’t let them out before 6:30 in the morning, when I am fixing their breakfast at around 6:00, they bark — with the summertime windows open, my neighbors can hear them.  Holmes is at the vet’s being debarked as I type.  Leidy (who can have a very annoying bark) is at the office with me.  Chase and Inca (who has been debarked) are at home.  I love my neighbors and am distraught that we are annoying them.  I really can’t deal with the issues any longer.  Since I intend to grow old with my dogs, it’s time for me to move.

    I contacted a client who deals in real estate in outlying areas.  So, hopefully, I can work a trade of my townhouse for a house on an acre in one of the surrounding, dog friendly counties.  I’m hoping for Valencia county which is south of Albuquerque — no canyons to drive through to get to the office.  It will be a half hour to and from work, but otherwise everyone will be more comfortable.  The dogs will have room to really run — and — maybe I can get me a tractor [say this with a cracker barrel accent]!  I also want a BIG garage or barn.  I have only a one car garage at the townhouse which is not enough for all my junk.  I can create an agility field so we can all play, and I can set up a couple of dog runs to separate the critters when they need separating.

    More later.

    Last night Eric, Paula, and their Cardis had company. Being carried off (from left to right) are Rosie (Sparrow), Ali (Alice), and Deuce (Two-Dot). Cute kids, cute babies.
