Alison left yesterday but not quite as planned -- instead of a flight at 1ish to Minneapolis and then to Boston, she wound up on a flight seven hours later to Seattle and then a red eye to Boston.

iBirthday (COMPLETE!)

The iPups are two years old -- Happy Birthday to each and every one of those very special dogs. I will add to today's blog as I receive photos but before we consider the iPups now, I invite you to remember their real birthday on June 25, 2013.

It's a Wrap

Yesterday's show results: Nada. But fun! Alison did a great job judging for us and we had happy obedience peeps. Sparkle has almost stopped her leaps in the show ring -- yay for her.
