A Great Start to the Weekend

January 21, 2012

The temperature today should be about 62 degrees.  By itself that is a pretty good beginning to the weekend, but there’s more.  Chase sent a package to a pretty girl in Texas and we should have more puppies around March 22nd.  Whoo Hoo!  I LOVE puppies.  If  you’d like to be considered for a puppy from this litter (end of May), complete the puppy application at the top of the blog.  Kathy McCombs will be in touch with you.

Yesterday Smooch double Q’ed in Rally Novice and Beginner Novice at the Rose City Classic in Portland, OR.  DeAnn has been working hard with Nola’s sister and we are very proud of how far along they are.  Cousin Hiro was Winners Dog both Thursday and yesterday to bring him to 11 points with both majors.  The wonderful thing about Hiro’s wins is that he is owner-handled by Catherine and Hiro is her very first dog!

Then, to make the weekend even more fun, Nola went herding.  I took the Nikon, set it on “sport”, and by the time I had photographed Nola and Ellen’s Banjo, I had 969 photos to sort through.  Ellen’s shots are all on a flash disk.  I’ve edited a few shots of Nola for your viewing pleasure.  She has such a good time with the sheep.  Thank you Auntie Ellen!

Tractor Supply Company just called me.  My $7.99 dog beds have come in.  I’m going to take my rain check into town and pick up the beds.  I hope your weekend started out as well as ours did.

    I absolutely love the pics when her feet are not touching earth but forward momentum is clearly happening!
