Dulce has mastered a new DAD behavior
Dulce picked up kennel cough at the National Speciality


This year started out so bad.

Rich was really worried about his job, as the management had changed. 

I lost a gig that was really fun, but really stressful.

We went through the head injury.

But we are in a really, really good place now.

I just got back from the largest beagle party ever and had a REAL blast.  Unfortunately there were people at the agility trial who just had to spoil it and I let them.  However the conformation people were fabulous.

Yeah, there were mean girls there too.  But I am learning to not let that go on my nerves.  It's a real shame when people can't let you enjoy yourself and enjoy in the fun, but that's okay.

Getting back was even better -- husband got a really good performance review. 

So we're looking forward to getting a new family member.  Hopefully she will be a half sister to Macy, hopefully she'll be someone I can show in conformation and finish, and hopefully she'll like agility as much as her sisters.

And if she isn't any one of those, we'll love her anyway.

Thank you, Julie, I wish I had met you in person but you gave me such lovely gifts.
