Babies & Friends

Claire and Berkeley...

The Puppies

Cute Daisy is here while she is in season -- protecting virtue is a job that Grandmas do well ;)


Two photos from the (very wet) draft test.


The Specialty is such a study in contrasts for me. Such excesses with/over dogs while we lock our cars at the draft tests against poor and homeless human beings. So much love for dogs and deep friendships among people even as dogs are choked and people are ignored (or worse -- told to Drop Dead). It makes my heart hurt and messes with my head, to be honest -- and I am glad it does.

In Focus

It should not be true that a Berner who is 8.5+ years is so terrifying -- but it kinda is. You feel like you are holding a ticking bomb, unsure when it will go off but certain it will. Each day brings you closer to the shattering. 

The Report

On the first day, it rained. And rained. And rained. We did draft in this mess...


I think Shame might have a place in our emotional repertoire. Not necessarily to make us feel badly about ourselves but maybe to serve as a signalling emotion telling us when we went just a bit too far.

Family Photos

The Flitters are doing well. Zed...

A BIG Birthday!

We wish Marnie from the D Litter a very Happy 11th Birthday -- what a special and amazing accomplishment!


The van is packed and we are heading west to Portland for the Specialty and etc.
