Practical Words of Wisdom

September 3, 2015

Margaret and Helen are at it again — read the entire post here.  However, for me this one sentence encapsulates everything I believe.

I’d rather live my life believing there is a God and finding out there isn’t, than believing there is no God only to find out there is.

So, Margaret and Helen’s pithy thoughts aside, this is a month of great change for me.  I am moving my office to my home this weekend.  It will be nice to be there with the dogs and the weeds (well, maybe not the weeds).  I hope to consolidate my legal work into a couple of very organized days, get back to writing, and do some dog training in daylight.  I think I am finally old enough to get my act together.

I will miss my away-from-home office and the people with whom I share space, but it is really time for a change.

I am planning two litters this fall/winter.  One will be Copper HT CD to that handsome black dog GCh Dragonpatch Thunderstruck.  We will have blacks, reds, and brindles.  Both parents are clear for DM, pink, and PRA, have normal CERF/CAER tests and very good hips.  Although da boy carries fluff, Copper does not.  Here is the pedigree.  And the other breeding will be a Chase litter — the mom, a new brindle girl to which I will introduce you soon.  Again both Chase and “Madame X” are fully health tested.  I LOVE puppies!

    Very excited for you! Means a whole new chapter which will be invigorating for you and the doggies! I look forward to the upcoming litters, which I know will be lovely.

    Congratulations! More time… and as an aside from a person who currently works in a home office, I suspect you’ll discover that
    “[a] door is what a dog is perpetually on the wrong side of.” Enjoy it all.

    Congratulations! I hope you will enjoy working from home and have more hours playing and less hours working!

    I hope that the move to a home office proves to be a happy change for you. I can hardly wait for your puppies. While I won’t be on your puppy list this time, we will be eagerly awaiting the puppy cam. I mentioned to Georgia just today how much fun we had watching Sherlock on the cam.
