OK, I want to write something to post, but I don’t have much time. I got home a little before noon today from a business trip to California and I leave tomorrow morning for a week in Lyon (France) for another business meeting.
So, here’s the list of who’s in the house right now:
For a number of weeks now, Barbara and I have been sleeping on separate floors of our 3-story house. Most of the time, she sleeps on the couch in the family room on the main floor, while I (if I’m not out of town somewhere) usually sleep in the bedroom on the upper floor. We [...]
Well, we’ve been back from the National for two weeks (plus most of today) and I haven’t had time to blog. I still don’t but I really should let you guys know some of what’s going on.
I spent the first entire week home working on the financial paperwork for the National Rescue [...]
The 2010 ASSA National Shetland Sheepdog Specialty dog show is over and we’re back at home. Actually, it was over almost a week ago and we got home very late Sunday night, 21 March, after a long but beautiful drive home from Tucson on mostly 2-lane blacktop roads. We’ve spent this week doing a bunch [...]
Just a brief report from the 2010 ASSA National in Tucson, AZ (USA)…
First, sales are down. Horribly down. We’re just over 50% of the sales we normally have by this time (end of Thursday). Barbara and I would be better off financially if we’d just stayed home
Second, some time yesterday between 2:00 PM [...]
We’ll blog more about the details later, but I wanted to tell our readers that we set some kind of new record last week. In one week, we placed for adoption six (6) dogs! It happened so fast that I found myself quietly crying one evening because I couldn’t remember all the details and I [...]
I have just a few minutes to spare right now, so I thought I’d muse a little bit.
Dali’s still here with us. The person who was going to come visit her found her charming, but hadn’t filled out an adoption application yet, so we couldn’t start any official paperwork. They still haven’t filled out the [...]
I’m back from Korea. Got in mid-afternoon on Saturday after a long, but uneventful trip involving a taxi, three planes, and a train. Don’t ask… Barbara picked me up at the airport with Abby and Star in the car, which was really, really nice. The girls (all three of them ) were happy [...]
After all of the doom-and-gloom over the past month, punctuated by the occasional travelogue, I thought I’d give a brief update on everybody else.
Star and Abby (whom we adopted ourselves) are doing great. Star continues to be a bit anxious about life in general, but especially about getting enough attention, while Abby is thrilled to [...]
Ok, this is officially a teaser. Tommy’s getting a job pretty soon, but I am not ready to tell anybody what it is or when it’s going to happen. All I can tell you right now is that it’s not a traditional Sheltie job and that the woman in California who helped us rescue Tommy [...]
