Home improvements for people with dogs

Growing up I remember people complaining about dogs ruining the windowsills. The nails, the dirt- etc. Well, our dogs were ruining our windowsills too- soooo... yesterday Mike covered the wood in Copper. Today it looks shiny and pretty, later it will be- what do we call it? Patina. I hope it looks really cool in the long run.

The un-glamour of breeding/showing dogs


Image may contain: one or more people, sky, tree, outdoor and natureShowing is the glamorous part of breeding dogs.  Breeding and raising puppies is the fun part of breeding dogs, but cleaning is the necessary "un-glamours" part that most people don't want to help with.  It is hard to find good help when it comes to cleaning and scooping poop.   Today (the Sunday in a long holiday weekend) Emily and I spent 7 hours cleaning crates and bathing dogs.  I was so happy to get it all done in one day, and it was a two person job to accomplish the task.  I am so thankful for Emily's help with the Un-glamour.

Acadia's Executive Director wins Best In Sweeps at the Evergreen Shetland Sheepdog Club

Acadia's Executive Director  "Ladin" is one of the 3 puppies I kept from the Aiden x Joy litter.  I am so happy with these puppies.  I had entered both Ladin and his brother Emmett in the 6-9 month class- and of course I can't show 2 puppies in the same class, so I asked Alex to show Ladin as he was better behaved.  They did great together.  I am really excited about Aiden's puppies.
