I would be closer to my mom She is in Florida. Also my brother he is in Kentucky. I have cousins and a best friend in NC.I think I will miss the arid climate and the open views though. My other choices were ohio,Maryland or Reno ..I am better with SC because it is warmer lol

I can't fault that reasoning! Having a pup is stressful enough without having one in the middle of a move! Are you okay with a move? That would be a very different setting than NM.

I am glad you are doing okay.
I have seen several ads but still have not acted upon it.I was thinking maybe this Fall.
Hubby is looking at possibly transferring to a different facility. The one he us at will be down sizing then closing completely. He is talking South Carolina. I think if will be enough of a project moving the animals I already have .Anyhow until then I am on hold.

Thank you. She told me Sunday it was time. She loved her vet and we shared tears and laughter. It was a peaceful passing and I am doing well.

Have you had any luck finding a heeler puppy? I keep watching the want ads but haven't seen any listed. Give your babies a hug.

Arlene, just wanted to let you know I haven't left this team. Just struggling with Caly. I have an appointment this afternoon to set my oldest girlie free. It has been coming for the past year and I should be prepared, but all I can do is burst into tears at the silliest things. I know it is best for her, but so hard for me. When you train and compete as a team for years, it is hard to let go. That bond becomes so strong--but this is my last gift of love to her.

Today is a bit less fun than yesterday. Picked up 160 pounds of meat for the dogs Thursday and it is almost unfrozen enough to repackage. It comes in 40 pound packages--this time chicken necks and turkey hearts. Much prefer the prepackaged that comes in 2 pound packs, but 2-3 times as expensive that way. So my hands are frozen--actually with the heat, maybe not so bad!

Your day sounds wonderful.
It has been hot. We got a few drops of rain yesterday not even enough to wet the dirt. Just put drop marks on it. I wish we would get a nice good rain too.
Not much going on here. I met a friend this morning after work and then came home and cleaned a bit. Think tomorrow I may bathe the boys they are looking a bit nappy.
Our garden is doing okay.Not as good as it did last year.Enough for us to eat and a bit to share.
Okay back to cleaning with me :)

This heat is dreadful. At least the humidity has not been too high--though I sure wish it would rain.

Went to Cuba yesterday to visit with my sister and her family. Several friends went with me--we played Mexican Train (domino game) and went to a private garage sale. An artist in Cuba is moving to Santa Fe and has to seriously downsize. I love her work (I had a 5" x 5" piece that I paid lots of money for at an art show years ago) and I got five pieces yesterday for under a $100. She was happy and I was happy. Then we went to El Brunos for lunch. YUM! Well worth the trip!

Today will be laundry catch up and gardening/watering. We are lucky to have an acequia with a small amount of water rights for the garden.

The Jacks and the Rats have a lot of the same breeding background. The Jacks were/are bred to work independently and the Rats were/are bred to work with people. In a lot of ways they are very similar. They were very popular in the 20's through the 50's as an all round farm dog. Both sets of my grandparents had RTs before I was born and were still talking about them when they died. They do great with anything they are raised with. Don't get me started--I could talk dogs and particularly Rats all day.

I hear you . My first Rotti came with those problems after several salvage surgeries I had to have him put down at 18 months it was heart breaking .The breeders refund your money BIG DEAL. when your heart is breaking and your puppy is suffering ,
I have never had a rat terrier. Let me research the breed a bit. My Jack Russel rocked. How similar are the breeds?

I can give you the names of several good rat terrier breeders! LOL. I waited for two years for my last pup. Saw her mother as a pup and told Amanda I wanted a puppy out of her when she was old enough to breed. She turned out to be a grand champion dog. Lots of people think breeding is just putting two dogs of the same breed together. Good breeding takes time, lots of testing and a knowledge of lineage. Good breeding is about the way the dog is put together, how the dog moves and how the dog ages. You sure want the best chance of a puppy that is not going to come with bred in problems and a short life. Getting off soapbox.

If I'm going to spend the time, energy, emotions and money on a puppy, I want one that has been well socialized, vet checked and preferably well bred. You will find what you want, just don't rush it.

We had wind stream when I lived in Bent and in Ruidosos when I worked for the vet. They were the worst.Always outages on the phone and the internet :( I hope it is all resolved soon

We are taking about getting a puppy. I am thinking an Australian Cattle Dog they are so smart .Would love a JRT but I never see any listing for them .
Off today. Going to be hot again. I guess I better get my butt in gear and head to the garden.

Yesterday was a trying day. Long story short: upgrading phone listing and internet speed. Phone company made appointment for today, but disconnected my phone yesterday. Dealing with a difficult customer (thank goodness they are few and far between) who decided we were going out of business to scam him. A small fire broke out just above the Village and the electricity was turned off. Fire out. Electricity back on. Took care of customer. Spent hours on phone with phone company. Phone still disconnected. Can we say stress? AAARRGH.

I am hoping for resolution today--I don't think I can yell at Windstream any more--really want to spent the day in a fetal position.

Laundry is a good thing. I am glad folks are enjoying your area for sure it looks beautiful up there.
It has rained a bit .Mostly around us. The mountains are very green. I wish we would get a few good rains. We mostly get thunder lightening and big wind :(

I think they always let you know when they are ready too. My poor little sable corgi has been having some pain issues. He goes through little spurts where he won't jump up on the couch. He is in one of them now. It disturbs me because he is only 8 . Seems he is too young for these troubles . But I guess long backed dogs have issues with it :(:(
It is already 95* I have been cleaning the house. I am up to mopping then I get to finish my book. LOL
Have a great day !

It is hard to let them go--even when they are more than glad to be gone. Haven't quite gotten to that point. Caly still loves to eat and even bounds around once in a while, but is having trouble getting up and walking sometimes. I will know when it is time--she will let me know.

Have you had any storms or moisture? We've been dry and toasty--actually more like burnt toast! Wish the monsoons would come back.

Playing catch-up on laundry--the tourists are definitely back--it has been a good summer season.

Enjoy your day.

Our boys are 8 . I always love the way the other dogs teach the younger dogs they way the family works and the rules of the house. I think they are valuable models for the younger pups. We have been talking about this for 5 years and have lost two of our greatest teachers.
I am sorry about your dog. That is the hardest part of having them . emoticon

My son has been working on the rabbits.I did see they are starting to creep in again. The quail are harder to deal with.
HAve a great day :)

It has been hot--and ditto on the rain. It looked promising for a bit, but this week--nada. Hope you can keep the critters in check--they can do a job on a garden in no time. I just love puppies and enjoy all the training that goes with them, I'm at the other end right now. Two of mine are 15 this year and one is not doing very well. We've (the vet and I) got her on pain medication to get through the summer, but have decided that we will not put her through another winter of cold. My responsibility, but I hate it! Yes Tipsy and I are still training. We have a trial in September and I am hoping we get that final leg for her CD and can move on to the next level. Enjoy your day.

Hi stranger :) Nice to see you .I am glad you did well at the craft fair. You really do make gorgeous pin cushions . I was quite taken with them.
Hope all is well .Things are good here. I am doing a Summer challenge on SP and keeping busy in the yard. I have to get out early to beat the heat. It has been supper hot here :/ Wish we would get more rain.The garden is doing a bit better the quail are giving me fits and the rabbits are bad.
Are you still training with the dogs?We are talking about another puppy but still have not made that commitment .
Heading to Las Cruses today .
Have a wonderful day

Too bad about the blossom end rot! We have had unusual weather this (every?) year. I have been going to the farmer's market here in the village on Saturdays. Someone from up around Cuba has been bringing some beautiful greens and yummy onions and several kinds of radishes. I am going to try roasting the radishes with some balsamic vinegar and avocado oil. They are a bit too much raw. Spent the Fourth a the local craft fair and did really well selling my pincushions. Sold half my inventory and will have to work hard to replace them for the October show.

Arlene--I dropped off the earth for a while--eating going fine, just so busy. Business is booming and since it is the "season", I don't seem to have a chance to turn around without bumping into laundry!

How is your garden going this year? Hope the veggies are growing well.

Spent 3 nights in Portland during the Rose Festival (and visited with family) which was unbelievable! Went to the main rose garden and could not believe the masses of color and the aroma! Also went to the Japanese Garden--which is serene and very GREEN! I did begin to think my grandkids were trying to kill me--we walked and hiked and rarely sat! My son has a seven month old Corgi who is just a joy--it was nice to have that dog fix while gone from my own.

Tell me what is happening and I will try to get on more!

Hope your film shoot went well. I wouldn't take my clothes off either LOL
The Boyz did good. They are snoozing .Tuweep lost 5 teeth Bisbee lost 1 . I knew they were in bad shape. The lump in Bisbees mouth did not seem to concern the vet GOOD!!!!!!!
Their teeth are so nice and white now. I am just going to have to bee much more vigilant about brushing.They really do not mind which really surprised me. Our girls were so bad about it I never really did it with these guys. I need to be slapped .

Been there done that. I'll tell you about my turkey chicks sometime--now there is a really stupid bird!

On my way into the Village--the Travel Channel will be filming this morning, shooting at the BathHouse and they need extras for shoppers etc.--NOT taking my clothes off. Poor Bob has to be interviewed--not really his cup of tea, but he will be fine. Ah the price of politics and Village promotion!

Let us know about the boyz.

I used to do the dentals at the vets. So I am pretty sure they will be okay. I never had a mishap thankfully. I am worried because there is a little lump on the roof of Bisbee's mouth, It is right behind a bad tooth so hoping with fingers crossed it is nothing .Tuweeps teeth are terrible he is going to loose at least 3 today. I feel bad for the techs because I want baseline blood work done and they hate their feet touched. Poor babies
Boy I started my seeds for the garden this year and some of them are really not looking good???? I did nothing different.They are just puny
Did I mention My brain must be mushy I ordered 30 chicks. They will be here next week. My house is going to be a stinky disaster LOL emoticon emoticon

I would like to see the earrings too.

Thinking good thoughts for the Corgis--I hate for the dogs to go under for anything. My son has a 10 week old Corgi--he says she is way too smart! I just laughed and reminded him to watch what he was training.

We had a scheduled power outage for three hours this afternoon, so went into ABQ to shop, then a game night with friends. I'm wiped out at this point. Night all!

I can't wait to see your earrings. I just love hand made stuff . Hope your family is feeling better

I have to take the corgi Boyz for their dental tomorrow of course I am going to be a nervous wreck .
I always park on the south 40 whenever I go some where . I do it for the extra steps and because I can't stand dings in my cars.I do it with all of my vehicles. My jeep is a 96 LOL I have to admit thankfully I am not responsible for any of the bangs she has, My PT got a dent 2 years ago when someone let a cart go in a parking lot and it hit the door :/ I am a nut job.I have always loved cars and critters .

Good morning all!
Sorry I have been MIA but the fam got sick with some cold/allergy illness. I didn't know that one could be allergic to those types of things, I am sorry to hear. I love the pincushions! They are so cute! I will post a picture of my earrings later if I can get a good shot.

I am sorry to hear about the car as well. I would be so upset! I always have that fear when I take my car anywhere something like this would happen.

I've always enjoyed handwork, crewel and embroidery, but would get bored with a project. These are just quick and fun.

Lots of sunshine today. Should have worked outside, but just not feeling it yet. Tomorrow works too!

Oh, sorry about the car. At least it will get fixed! I have a crunch in the back where Bob backed into something (and the dang car has a backup camera!). He keeps saying it will get fixed, but it never will. My BIL says the gods get jealous if everything you have is perfect--no worries there.

Wow those pincushions are gorgeous . I have no patients or love for that type of work. Lord knows my mom tried.
I love to craft things but needle work is not among my skill set.
QT I wish I could burn calories reading LOL
Took my car to the car wash yesterday. The man took his foot off the brake as he opened the door the car rolled and the door got crunched :( BOOOHOOO they are going to pay to repair the damage but It is going to look sad for a few weeks
The weather down here is so beautiful. Hope you northern girls are getting some warm sunshine too .

That is so funny QT! I would love to have crafting as an exercise! Ah well. Back to walking! I'm really having fun with the pincushions--I'm allergic to the printmaking and painting that I used to do, and this satisfies that need for creating. Love the colors and textures--it really fills a place in my soul. I took some pics this past weekend and will attach a couple:

Happy friday.
No I am not originally from here. I come from a small town in northern New Mexico called Arroyo Hondo.

I would love to see some of your pincushions. I love crafting and can spend a whole weekend getting lost in it. Mostly I am a crochet fanatic but I also dabble in embroidery and chainmaille jewelry. I am finishing a blanket for a friend and then I am on to my new earring project!

I think my craft is what got me to where I am today. I would sit for hours and just snack and craft. If I could burn major calories crafting, I would be very very fit!

Tipsy is easy--just put her on her back between my knees and brush away. Such an easy girl. Tango would take my hand off, but is my best for having his nails dremeled. They are such characters--each with a personality all their own.

On to laundry and pincushions! Did I tell you I started doing some boiled wool, appliqued and embroidered pincushions? I love hand work, but always get bored halfway through a project. The pincushions are a perfect size--finish one in a couple of days and on to a new design! Will have a show at one of the local galleries in October. I'm getting very positive feedback on them!

Enjoy the day!

Dogs are like people . I guess we all have our individual problems .
I have an apricot tree too. It has never done anything. I dug it up out of a ditch. I have a feeling a gopher did damage to that.Not really sure about the peaches.NM is hard on fruit trees. Sometimes I think there is not enough water LOL and then there is this soil . The dirt in my yard seems to vary from one spot to the next. It is odd .
I bet I could do Bisbee's teeth with an electric tooth brush Tuweep would never play that game .

Albuquerque is so busy . Have you always been there QT ?

Tipsy is the only one of the five that has those problems. It is getting warm and I love it--though I do hope we get some more moisture before fire season.

That is too bad about the peach trees! NM is hard on fruit trees. We have several apricot trees--the neighbor says they are there because he used to spit apricot seeds on this property when he was a boy--and only once in the twenty years we've been here have they produced a crop. Always freeze after blooming.

I have been brushing Tipsy's teeth with an electric toothbrush. Anything to put off the dental work.

Aww I was wondering how Tipsy was doing. Poor girl. We are limited to the resources we have here for sure. My allergies have started up already too.
I have my boys scheduled to get a dental . They are way over due. I just hate the anesthetic process involved.
It has been so nice down here. In Ruidoso and Cloud Croft the snow was bad this year. Happy to be a flatlander.
Our peach trees just up and died on their own last year. They were doing great then they weren't :( It is always a bummer to lose them.
Where are you QT? I am in Tularosa.

I'm maintaining as well, just can't make myself move!

We've had some snow here in Jemez Springs, but most of it is gone in the village. Still lots up about 10 miles and a good amount on the Valles Caldera. No blossoms here yet, but Tipsy is starting her 'I'm allergic to spring' routine. Poor little dog. I sure would like to find a homeopathic vet for her. Homeopathy worked for my seasonal allergies--but not sure what to use or how much for a dog.

My grandfather used to have plum trees out back but a few years ago there was a bad thunderstorm and the lightening struck them. There was no saving them. Is it still snowing out where you all are? I think we saw a couple days of snow a couple of months ago.

I do too.I hate the cold.I have been really over doing it for the last 2 weeks because the weather has been so nice outside.I will be seriously sad when the temperature drops again.
I have been maintaining my weight so am happy about that .
Have my seeds started for the veggie garden. And I ordered 30 chicks. I might be insane.
Stay warm Spring is coming. I know this because the chickens are laying more eggs and the plum trees have a few blossoms emoticon

Happy Birthday I am with you. I also do not like to be cold. I can not wait for the warmer weather. I was so tired of being stuck in the house that I went out and gathered tumble weeds and made a huge burn pile out of them. I thought I was going to freeze to death LOL
Congrats on the grand babies .You seem very active and wonderful to me so you must be doing something right.Those babies are lucky to have you as a great grand ;)

We were supposed to go to Bien Shur for dinner tonight to celebrate my birthday. BUT I don't want to get out in the cold, drive for an hour, eat and come back. I think we will celebrate another day at NOON! Man I must be getting old. Actually I am old, but still having fun and enjoying life. One of my grandkids just had a baby and I found out yesterday that another is due in July! Two great grandbabies in less than a year. Yup I'm old.

It is snowing a bit right now and I am looking forward to summer! Not a fan of cold. Enjoy your day and stay warm.

Glad to have you back! I've been MIA for a while. Even though we don't celebrate a traditional Christmas, it sure takes up my time. And I have been redoing window coverings in the dining and living rooms. It sure is cold, and I guess you are probably socked in with snow. We got some, but it was a bit south of us and of course the east was hammered. My dogs think it is enough snow to make the stove a good place to be.
