  1. 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?

  2. 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.
