Update Finally...

OK, we fell off the wagon for a bit with the blogging for which we are extremely sorry and hope you will all forgive us when you realize how crazy it has been here :)

My sister and her youngest son moved back here in July and her older son (who will be going to college in the fall in Toronto) followed in August. Three additional people plus one additional dog and a whole lot of angst later and things are finally starting to settle down again. Oh, we also had to help them find somewhere to live permanently (they move next week into a great place in Toronto where they'll be close to Jacob's school and residence), furnish the place, etc. Actually, it has been a lot of fun having them here. The boys are a big help and Joanna founded the Nuthatch Gang with me many years ago before moving out west. I'll miss them when they go (but not the dramatic increase in laundry).

I have often found myself thinking about the things I wish to blog about but by the time I have time to do it, I'm too tired. We're in the midst of yet another medication adjustment so hopefully that will help keep me on my toes.

I'm going to do a lot of the updating in stages rather than try to pack it all in a single blog. Hopefully within the next week or so we'll also start to catch up with our blogging friends. Please be patient with us.

We'll touch on the following later in more detail but we finished Frost's Canadian Championship, Dundee continues to win on both sides of the border, Buffy has also found her groove. Aurora has been kicking ass in the specials ring. And of course, the puppies that I'm actually showing (rather than having the smart guys like Sarah and Iris show) having been having a great time making a fool of me and Dad :) There was one weekend that it will take a lot to beat in my history books that, from a dog winning perspective, was simpy phenomenal.

We lost our last Siberian, Michael. This deserves a post unto itself and will get one.

We welcomed a new member to our tribe - Cash. More on him soon.

Puppy news also deserves to be a post unto itself, so like I said lots to tell you.

In the meantime though, we thought we'd leave you with some pics of Sonnet. Sonnet is Frost's littermate, out of Delceg and Becca. She lives in Texas with NEWPoint GSPs. We co-own her but Nancy does all the hard work :) Needless to say we're pretty proud of them and their friend Gerry who often handles Sonnet. Sonnet has field, obedience, agility and show titles. An all rounder....
