How was everybody's weekend? We were in the 90's all weekend, which is hot for us. I hid in the house with the dogs, enjoying the air conditioning. What can I say? I'm a wimp when it comes to heat.

A Facebook friend of mine posted two photos of Farley that I hadn't seen before, taken when I was in Reno two years ago. I LOVE this one . . .

Here is my latest accomplishment. I didn't learn to knit as a kid . . . I took a class maybe 5 or 6 years ago at a local quilting store and learned how. To date I've just made scarves for people, but now I'm starting to branch out. One of my very good friends is a good knitter, so she's helping me expand my knowledge base. I just finished a quick project of a dish cloth with a paw print in it.

Hello everyone!

Well after having 3 weeks of no computer it is finally back in working condition. They found 75 viruses and took 3 trips to the computer store to fix the problem. The good news is that it is working fine now.

I lost my old kitty Silk to kidney trouble almost two weeks ago. I have decided that getting another kitty is probably not a good idea at this time. Nimitiz and Dart are trying be my kitties now. Of course I have Katie and Josh who are always ready for a hug of pet.

Because she doesn't have the foundation to do the really advanced stuff . . . maybe in rally obedience, which isn't as exacting as regular obedience, but even that is tricky. But it doesn't matter to me, honestly. I love the basic training and like all of my dogs to have at least one or two performance titles, because Cockers are so capable of doing more than just sitting on the couch. And I am so capable of training them to do more.

Kermit is a character, without a doubt. He is doing wonderfully at scent hurdle now - he's a dependable dog that lots of people love to watch. And his obedience training is going really well - we are now learning the more advanced exercises and he's enjoying it.

I've started the basic training with Sylvie - she's a smart cookie and interested in learning. I don't think she'll do the more advanced levels, but it would be fun to do some rally and novice level obedience with her.

Well Cheri, if you're a dinosaur then so am I. I've never heard of this "open" interview concept. Not sure I like it. But since I'm employed and not planning to leave my job anytime soon, I guess that's okay.

Kermit had a scent hurdle tournament today so we drove with a friend and he got to run. Considering how bad he was this time last year, I'm pretty impressed with his performance. He ran with a team other than his own and only made one mistake - and we were running in a horse barn! The team he ran on tied for second place in the tournament, which is pretty cool. He's a good little scent hurdle dog and he's darned cute too. What more could I ask for?

I was there not 10 minutes this morning and the power went out, came back on, and went out again for about 1 1/2 hr. We didn't have A/C on my floor until about 2 or 3 pm. It was warm and stuffy, but I have a fan on my desk, so that helped a little. Off tomorrow. I was going to go for an interview, but I just saw posted that those who were contacted will be elg for the "open" interviews. I didn't get called, so not sure what I will do with my day! I am picking up a used desk I bought. I hope I like it. I saw it on FB at a resale shop

Beautiful photo Kim. Oh Kelly how kind of you to get Scamp down to a good weight and to find a good home for him.It must have been a relief to his people to know he was well looked after when they could not take him to assisted living.

I wish you lived closer Kim, as I'd send him right over. Every time somebody asks about him, they drop off the face of the earth when they hear about his arthritis. He's really an easy-going dog and will make the perfect pet for somebody.

I saw your photos on Facebook today of your neighbor's yard - great photos!

He would be perfect in my home. We don't do much exercise. Murphy is older now and doesn't really play or run much. Sophie will run, but she is a little chunky. I don't have them on the best food.

I had to spend money to get my central air fixed at my house yesterday. It ran, but it wasn't cold. At least it was only a "capaciter" -whatever that is - needed to be replaced. I have lived in this house 12 years and I don't know how old the A/C unit is and never had it serviced. I was lucky it was just that one thing!! Can't afford a new A/C.

No work today. The building I work in has now power. Yesterday around 3pm a transformer blew underground and knocked the power out and caused a small fire. Don't know when they will have it fixed. Probably will be back at work tomorrow.

That's excellent news Kim!

The biggest thing for Scamp was cutting down on his food and feeding him a good food. He was on Purina Beneful when he came to me, and he was free feeding. Trying to free feed a Cocker never ends well - there are incredibly few of them that will regulate their own meals. Mine would all eat until they exploded. The weight came off quickly and as I said before, he's fairly agile now - hops off and on the couch with no issue. But he does have the arthritis in his hips, so he's not a candidate for a really busy home. He'd be perfect with a couple of retirees, just walking to and from the mailbox and otherwise cuddling and enjoying life.

He reminds me of my dog Joey, his eyes. Good work on getting the weight down. He looks great. He has lots of playmates to keep him moving.

Scamp is 6 years old. I took him in back at the end of January, when his owners had to move into assisted living and couldn't take him with them. He was 50 pounds when I got him - I've worked hard to get his weight down to a reasonable level. He has some arthritis in his hips from carrying so much extra weight and he has had one knee fixed because the ligament tore, but that doesn't slow him down much. He's an easy-going dog - now to find him the right home.

This is Jack Jack - he has since had a haircut. He's done showing for now, so he doesn't need all that hair that requires regular grooming. He can go back to getting dirty and having fun on walks.


This is Fernando, my visiting dog.

Well, I got home on Monday late afternoon and I finally feel awake enough to actually write something about my weekend. To say it was busy is a gross understatement. Showing four dogs in the regular show plus running Kermit in scent hurdle kept me hopping from about 5:30am until about 10:30pm every day.

The run-down of my weekend is as follows: Jack Jack earned his Altered Championship (a special title for spayed and neutered dogs which is only offered in Canada, not the US). He did this by winning Best in Specialty Show (a show for Cockers only) twice and Best in Sporting Group (spaniels, retrievers, setters, etc) once. The judge on Sunday said that nothing compared to him, so I was thrilled.

Opie won Best Bred By Exhibitor (meaning the person that showed him was the breeder) at the National Specialty - this is THE show for Cocker Spaniels in Canada, so that was nice. On Sunday, at the other Cockers-only show he won Reserve Winners Dog (runner up to the best boy that isn't a champion already).

Sylvie won Reserve Winners Female on Sunday at the same show as Opie, which is very nice for a female with not much coat.

Fernando went Best of Winners on Sunday at the all-breed (regular) dog show for his first three points. He needs 10 points to finish his Canadian championship, so I'm pretty happy with how he did for his first weekend of shows with me.

I groomed all four of my dogs (bath, blowdry and trimming) plus I trimmed four other dogs. I showed all four of my dogs plus I showed several other dogs to help friends. On Saturday I got almost 20,000 steps. On Friday I got over 17,000 steps and on Sunday I got around 16,000 steps. That's a lot for me!

Overall it was a good weekend and I had fun, but man I'm tired!

Hi, all! In case I haven't said this before, my family and I adopted a poodle a couple months ago. His name is Murphy. I still love spaniels, and someday I will adopt one again. But Murphy was being given away by my Mom's friend, and we couldn't resist. :) He's three, and very cute. Thanks!

I hope the window is an easy fix too! I have baby rabbits and wood ducks in my yard today. Afraid to let my dogs out until all the ducks are out the nest. Don't know if they are or not. I've only seen one duckling, there has to be more unless the mom got them out and this one was lost. It ran into my neighbor's yard. Mom was in the yard earlier and did look a little frantic and that is when I let the dogs out. The bunnies are in a safe area the dogs can't get into....the dog pen. LOL!!

Monday I have a guy coming to look at my back picture window. The casing on the bottom of it outside is wood and it is rotting. I hope it will be an easy and cheap fix.

Everybody's coming to the show. Jack Jack is being shown in Altered, which is a class for spayed and neutered dogs. He only needs 3 more points to finish his Altered Champion title, and then he will be the first Cocker in Canada to earn it. It has taken us years, as the Altered class is rarely offered. Kermit is running scent hurdle on the Saturday night. Sylvie is entered in the specialties - they are her first shows in Canada. Opie is entered in the specialties. Fernando (my visiting dog) is entered in everything - so I'm showing him six times. I will be very, very busy. But it'll be fun. It always is.


Fernando - my friend's dog that is here to be shown


Yes, he has a boatload of coat . . . but it sure is pretty!

I'm gearing up for our big dog show of the year . . . I leave on Thursday and get home Monday night. There are four all-breed dog shows and two specialties (shows for Cocker Spaniels only) so it will be very busy. I've been busy grooming dogs and trying to get everything ready. It'll be a busy weekend, but lots of fun. My brother is letting a friend and I use his trailer, so we can stay right at the show and not have to drive there and back every day.

My floor is really wet and I don't want to get down on my hands and knees. Besides we had a LOT rain today and last night, so where my sump pump is, is full and not pumping. The water has no place to go. The rain has quit and I am hoping that water will recede before I try anything with my washer. I am going to have to take my clothes out the washer and go to my sisters' tomorrow. Then we can work on this issue. I did get the cement to put the pipes together and couldn't even open the bottle. I ended up taking them back and they guy at the store couldn't even unscrew the cap. Finally, he took pliers and got them open. So nothing is happening tonight!

I just realized once again that I have not been getting Spark notifications. I do not know how this happens. I get busy on FB and see Kelly and her updates on her dogs, but don't think much about Spark. This not getting notifications is rather irksome once I think about it. I get daily emails from them and get the points, but the more important stuff I don't. Doesn't make sense. So I am here!!

Not much has been going on. Just called my sisters to cover to help me. I have a PVC pipe that has come undone from my washer and sink in my basement. I need plumbers (?) glue to get it back together. I can't do it by myself, so that is why I called my sisters. I swear this house if falling apart.
