On the road again
This time, we're heading to Llano, California. Sally Douglas will be hosting Norman for a clinic and private lessons. I have photographic sessions booked as well. I can't wait, the desert is beautiful, hoping to create the next, best image ever!
We just drove through Las Vegas. It is 65 degrees and I am roasting! I still have snow pants on from this morning. When we left Utah, it was a cool 22 degrees. I can't be bothered to take them off. Whining to Norman to open the window seems easier.
Yes, we're driving. Call us crazy, but driving for two days seemed easier than leaving all of our dogs behind. Besides, think of all the quality time we are having together.............."I'm hot, can you roll the window down!!!!"

Puppies for Sale
Our new litter of puppies are doing great. Hanna (the Pirate) really surprised us. We were hoping for 5, thought she would have 4, and she had 9. How's that for fast addition. We don't know where she was hiding them, as they are all a nice size. Some have blue freckles on their heads, and legs, like Jake. Some are really black, like Hanna. All are adorable.
Needless to say, we have a few pups to sell. So if you know of anyone looking for a new, little, working partner. Send them our way.........They must be able to pass a polygraph, go through a background check, have 5 pieces of ID, and let us meet their Mother........just joking........sort of!

And then there were NINE!
Well, we're finished. She did a great job. What a nice little dog. She is all cuddled up with her pups, happy as can be. We have 5 girls, 4 boys, all basically the same size. Some have more white on their faces and some are really dark, and a couple have little tiny freckles like their Dad.
Feeling very blessed..........
They have arrived!
At least some of them. 3 puppies alive and well, all girls so far.
?? more to go......

My Hanna (the Pirate) is expecting. She is actually due tomorrow. We bred her to Norman's Jake when we were at Soldier Hollow. We have been waiting to announce this breeding. We wanted to make sure she was in pup, then we thought we would wait until she whelped..........well I just can't wait any longer!
I have already named my pup.........even though Norman says he doesn't recall my name on the which I say there
wasn't a list, since we never told anyone! That means one would be available for me.........I will keep you posted.

A big thank you to everyone who attended Norman's last two clinics.
We enjoyed seeing our old friends and meeting new ones. The progress everyone made was excellent. A special thank you to Tom Cooney for passing the word about our clinic, and to Dave and Ursula at Lead Me On, their hospitality is always over the top.
I enjoyed photographing the dogs at the clinics and will share with you some of the art I created, as I finish it. The first piece is of Mary Ann Lindsey's dog Hemp. Enjoy!
