I have a request -- a favor.

Birthday Thoughts

The math is tough to do this early in the morning. It is 2017. My mom has not been here to celebrate her birthday since 1983 -- her 45th. That is a lot of birthday tears.

Handling Lessons

You know how we have an Inside Voice and an Outside Voice? The Inside Voice is what is running through our brains, and the Outside Voice is what comes out through the filters that are should be in place to prevent us from saying exactly what we think. Do you ever wonder -- why is saying what I think such a bad thing?!


This is Claire...

Fast Friday

Today is the seventh birthday of the iPups' father, Fil. I swiped this birthday photo from Facebook...

Needed: Rogaine for Dogs

After a litter, the puppies are not the only thing that departs -- so does coat. With just a few weeks until the Specialty, Sparkle is sporting a rather bald look...

Snippet of Info & Cute Babies

This is the abstract from a dissertation study, and I think it is worth reading -- and then check your dog food ingredients if you feed kibble. And no raised bowls -- but that has been known as a bloat risk for some time now: http://docs.lib.purdue.edu/dissertations/AAI3099198/

Show Report & Puppy Exercise Chart

Our first show in many, many months -- Zoey got utility leg #2...


We took Claire on her first hike today -- only about 1/2 mile since she is a baby. We went to the Wildlife Refuge that is just a few miles from the house.

Endings and Beginnings (Updated with All Nine!)

The shifting back to "normal" life following the loss of one of our own does not disrespect the one who left or those who are heartbroken. What matters is to create space in our minds and hearts for the one who is gone and for the grief left in the wake of the leaving while also honoring and experiencing the gift of life. It is no tribute to someone we love to allow their loss to cause our emotional and/or spiritual death. Life ends -- but it also begins, and continues. Please don't leave before you are physically required to do so.
