2011 Hasn’t Ended Yet — Shucks!

December 29, 2011

There is still so much happening —

It appears our Holmes will become a California boy.  We are working on the logistics now.  Once he is ensconced in his new home, we’ll share photos and information.

Chase and Kearney and Susan will be heading into Georgia this weekend for a herding trial — I can’t think of a better way to spend New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.  Hopefully Chase will pay attention to Susan and think his way through the Advanced Sheep courses.  We could certainly use two Advanced legs.  The weather is supposed to be very nice — sunny and clear.

I am at the office working on year end stuff.  Once the printer sent the Bulletin to the mail house, I was freed to catch up.  Wow!  I am so behind.

This morning was a fabulous morning — there was no ice on my windshield.  It is supposed to be that way for the next few days.  That is such a welcome change — though it means the poopsicles in the dog yards should be removed.  It’s difficult to do that when you can’t see them.

Enjoy the winding down part.  Although I have some really cool things to report in the year-end wrap-up, I am not sorry to see 2011 go away.  I’m really looking forward to 2012.

    I’m so glad that Holmes will have his forever home and he’ll be the top dog. They are getting a nice boy.

    Ditto to what Kathy said. I wish I would have been able to have him. Hopefully, they will keep in touch and give all of us updates. They are not getting a nice boy, they are getting a Spectacular boy, friend, companion and all around great fellow. It has been a treat to watch hime develop from loveable pup to GrCH. I hope they realize how lucky they are and that he flourishes in his new home. Maybe some day, I’ll be as fortunate as they are. Godspeed Holmes and Happy New Year Penni!

      Thank you Valerie for letting everyone know that Holmes will be coming to Lake Arrowhead to join you and Mike and Kody. I hope once he”s arrived and settled in a little you’ll do “guest posts” from time to time to bring all of Holmes’ friends up to date on his adventures.
