I am sorry for the late Blog but hope you will think it is worth it. Last night Kathy and Joan were telling me that it can be hard to figure out who is who from the descriptions of the pictures, and so I played around and look at what I managed to do! Yes, indeed – the photos have names! Do not freak about the blue eyes -- remember -- that is normal at this age :)
All is well here at Puppy Central. The babies are growing by the second and yes, we still weigh them to ensure that they are gaining and they are. They were so sweet and cuddly last night with Joan and Kathy – that was nice to see. Maybe Joan and Kathy could share impressions in the comments section?? I am sorry that Cali got our invitation too late to come over but we will see her soon. Let me give a big congratulations to Cali who finishes her pediatric residency this weekend – yippee for Cali!!! The puppies have special kisses to give you!
The sociopath cat is not nearly as smart as he thinks he is – he was caught in a cat trap over night and is now on his way to Utah with a triumphant Nicole! Just in time for Christmas – I know how much Joan likes orange cats!
I am sorry to report that the Blog is taking the weekend off. I am heading to Long Beach to show Asia at the AKC Eukanuba Invitational. As the name suggests, this show is entered by invitation only and our Asia (16 mos) earned this honor so we are going. The top dogs in the country will be there and Asia is a baby (and not a top dog -- yet ;) and so I have no illusions of a win but rather I have set two what I hope are realistic goals. First, I want to do a nice job handling her. I have been taking classes and private lessons, and we practice a lot so I think I am ready. Second, I want to have fun showing off my beautiful puppy. Since I will be with friends – and Asia is lovely -- I think this is also an attainable goal.
Galen will be holding down the fort while I am gone. Cassie and Jake has promised to help, and Joan is stopping by tomorrow to remove sutures from the dewclaw debacle. Kim is busy with his wrestling team so he can't go with me but Elizabethanne is flying out to California tomorrow to hang out with us. I leave soon for the long drive, and will be coming home just as soon as I am done showing on Sunday. So the puppy Blog will resume on Monday but I may post pictures from Long Beach if I take any worth sharing.
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for checking in with us today.
