Another Great Weekend

OK, despite being down with a nasty sinus infection I'm still counting this as a great weekend. We got a call from Iris letting us know that Aurora (pictured below - Nuthatch's Edenstar Aurora - out of Jammer and Bug) went WB in New Jersey for her second major!

In other news, I am trying to get the video uploaded. I got some nice video of them terrorizing the kitchen - now to see if I can make Hsin-Yi's suggestion work for me.

On Good Friday most of the puppies will be going to their new homes. The exceptions are Hamelin who is going to St Bartholomew's and has to wait until he's old enough for a rabies shot (I think I should deliver him in person lol); and Maelle. We're either going to foster or co-own Maelle.

That will be my last hurrah for a bit. The following weekend Grandma and Grandpa are headed off to Spain and Portugal to celebrate their 41st anniversary and I'll be alone with the monsters for a few weeks so no travelling for awhile. Mango Momma mentioned some shows in Springfield but I won't make it in April - maybe in May though. The dogs on the other hand, will likely be there lol

I have accepted two judging assignments in September and those will hopefully be the last ones I need to complete my permit for half of group 3. I'm thinking we'll do part of group 1 next. I started with Siberians and was erroneously told when I started judging that I needed to start with group 3. This was a bit awkward as although I keep many ties to the Siberian community, most people think of me as a Sporting Dog person and the judging requests I get are often for sporting dogs. So, we'll move onto Sporting and return to finish the working group afterwards.


  1. Goodness...your house is gonna seem SO quiet when all those puppies go home, huh?

    Good luck with the judging! I know you'll be super-terrific!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  2. Wow, congrats to you and Aurora! :)

  3. Sorry to hear about your infection! HOpe you are feeling better soon. Congrats about Aurora and good luck with holding the forte on your own! :-)
