  1. On the Road Again

    Shadow Chase and DeAnn have been hitting all the agility trials in the Pacific Northwest — so many in fact that Chase is now the official mascot of DeAnn’s club.  As you can see, he loves riding in the back of the truck with the wind ruffling his hair metal.  The real Chase is still in Tennessee moving the sheep and ducks at will.

    Leidy must offer super-milk.  Today was a milestone for Reba as she moved up the scale to 13.5 oz — more than double her birth weight of 6.5 oz.  Her siblings continue to move toward butterball status with Smooch at 1 lb., 4.5 oz., Udi at 1 lb, 3.9 oz., and Victor at 1 lb., 4 oz.  They are now happy to cuddle up against my neck — no longer concerned that they have been lifted into the air and are moving away from the whelping box.  I can’t wait for eyes to begin opening so they can see what’s around them — but mostly so I can see those pretty eyes.  I love puppies!

    In unrelated news, I made my hotel reservations for the Nationals.  There was so much chatter about it on the various lists that I panicked and decided I’d better get rooms.  At this point, I plan to fly (round trip is about $300 on Southwest), rent a car, drive to the herding site to watch Susan and Chase, and stay there until Monday when we’ll drive back into Houston and check into the host hotel.  I will take Chase from Sunday afternoon  until I return him to Susan on Saturday after Best of Breed competition.  I’ve definitely missed my happy boy.
