  1. Lounge Lizard or Office Dog

    November 29, 2011 by myeye

    Holmes has been coming to the office quite frequently.  He loves being here because he thinks he has his very own loveseat.  Since most of my clients are in jail, the couch isn’t much in demand anyway.  It’s so nice to look over and see all those cute freckles.

  2. Cardi Claus and the Mortgage Payment

    The mortgage payment is due the first of the month – blech!  However this month, the Cardi Claus package is also due to be mailed by the first of the month.  I need to check email from Cardi Claus to see where this box is headed.  I’m sure it’s going to a Cardigan household . . . hmmm.  Who could it be?

  3. Cute Baby Photo

    Torch (fka Yancey) from the Chase/Ditto litter lives with Kim Shira and Leo Eickhoff in Oregon.  Torch is sable with that same sweet expression and the wonderful ears that you saw on the Tater Tot.  Kim sent me this photo that she took a week ago.  Doesn’t he look huggable?

  4. Thanksgiving Weekend

    November 28, 2011 by myeye

    When I look back at the past week — the trauma of Mike dying, trying to catch up at work and get the Bulletin done, herding in the cold yesterday — it’s hard to believe that I am sitting at my desk this morning as if it was a normal day.  Lots happened, so this is a recap:

    Tater went to Lisa’s on Friday night and on Saturday went to his forever show home with Kathleen McCombs.  He is a fortunate baby to have found people that are crazy about him.  Yesterday Tommy (Chase/Scout) earned his 14th Championship point.  He just has one more point to go and he will be CH Mockingbird It’s the Magic in Me.  His owner is doing a great job with him.  Eleven month old Tommy is his Daddy’s boy — loves to go to shows, loves to watch TV.  He is our Lowri’s littermate.

    I came into the office on Friday and Saturday to work on the Bulletin — not finished, but close.

    Yesterday Nola and I went herding.  IT WAS SO COLD.  The elevation where the stock is housed is over 7,000 feet and the wind was really blowing.  So I just added balaclava and hat-with-ear-flaps to my shopping list.  I need to go to Sportsmans Warehouse before we herd again.  I think we are going to begin herding at a place that is only twenty-five minutes from my house.  We’ll have to do it on a weekday, but I’ll work that out.  It will be so much better than driving an hour and a half each way.

    Time to kill trees — I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving.

  5. Tater Found His Home

    November 27, 2011 by myeye

    Friday morning I put the Tater Tot on a Delta flight to Dallas.  His breeder picked him up and took him home.  Tater and his litter sister Riley romped into the night — good for both of them.  Yesterday Lisa took Riley and Tater to the Alvarado shows where Kathleen McCombs fell in love with the little red boy.  She took him home for an overnight trial, but within a couple of hours of the red baby marching into her house, the decision was made.  Tater has his home and Kathleen has her long-coveted red show boy.  I am so happy for them both.  My dogs have spent some time looking for Tater — they can’t figure out where he is, but they have a play pack so no one is likely to pine away.

    I look forward to photos and to occasionally seeing little Tater at shows.
