They are so hefty because they have been gobblin’ up Leidy’s milk. Since it’s almost Halloween, we used an orange towel and a couple of cute pumpkiny-squash things. Thanks as always to Adrienne, the official Elyan puppy photog. Her reward was a special manicure.

Four people who guessed 8 puppies left tie -breaker comments: Susan Shields with 5 girls/3 boys, Cheryl Kienast also with 5 girls/3 boys, Kathy Miller with 4 boys/4 girls, and Carolyn Cannon with 5 boys and 3 girls. Carolyn was the closest (though I would certainly have preferred 5 girls/3 boys), so Chase and Leidy will send her a surprise (no, NOT a puppy).
Adrienne spent the night here last night. As soon as we’ve had some breakfast and the sun is up to give us natural light, we will start on the puppy photo project. We’ll post photos later today.

In Albuquerque today’s high was scheduled to be only 90 degrees — down from the 100 and 101 last weekend while I was in Seattle, and the 96-97 enjoyed(?) during the week. We were out of town by 9:00 with glorious weather the entire trip — well, almost. It started raining as I arrived at the Garden of the Gods La Quinta, it was hailing hard, big balls of ice when I arrived at the convention center, and then a tornado was sighted. Wow! What a welcome! Nonetheless, I handed off the lab I had transported and got my crates and grooming table to our space — a little damp, but not too bad.
So, we’re settled in.
This is how the chores were broken down. I am going to sleep. Chase is going to lounge on the bed, and Leidy plans to guard the door. You might ask about Holmes — he’s in the car. I’ve never had him in a motel before and hope to never do it again. He is ON GUARD. You see, there are people right outside our door and through the wall, and strange dogs. One of the things Holmes inherited from his mother is an exceptionally annoying alarm bark. So — he’s out in the car. He’s loose in the back and has a trachea on which to gnaw. You’ve no idea how guilty I feel. On the other hand, I don’t want the management ousting us at 2:00 AM.
Chase is with me instead of with Wendy so we could do some quick obedience work — it’s been a month and I really want Chase to get that third green ribbon this weekend. Our practice started with him watching me and forgetting to sit — a quick pop and the light bulb flashed. He remembers. So, cross fingers for tomorrow.
Wendy also brought me a bag of prizes — pottery from Durango, a big white rosette, the new pale blue/white select ribbons, the BOB ribbons. Some of the items are a bit fragile, but we will get them home safely and love displaying them.
Inca is at Adrienne’s; I had dinner with my son who is coaching the Air Force Academy’s volleyball team. All in all, we’ve had a pretty nice day.

Today was Adrienne’s last full day of 3rd Grade. There was an assembly for award-giving and doting grandmothers were welcome.

Adrienne came over with her Dad. While he got my swamp cooler fired up, she took the Nikon in hand. We did some stacked photos, but mostly she just took pictures (170-some). Here is part of the collection. Although Holmes is not stretched well, I put in his stacked photo because he is suddenly filling out. I hadn’t noticed.
No photos of Inca-Dink. Unless she is causing the bedlam, she doesn’t care to participate. We’ll catch her next time.
