It's A Sunny Day!

"Humphrey who?!?!! Who's this girl?!"
"Let's play ball!"
Please join us in welcoming our newest addition!
                                           Name: Sundance  A.K.A. Sunny
                                           Weight:  42 lbs.
                                           Gotcha Date: October 31, 2012
                                           Breed:  Pointer
                                           Pick up from the shelter time: 2:30 p.m.

                                           Her story:  Found roaming in a field with a Bearded Collie. 
                                                              Has spent the last few months at our local
                                                              shelter waiting for her furever home.
By the way, she's AMAZING!  She can sit, come, fetch, heel on a loose leash, and give great big huge smoochies!!!  We've been visitng her at the shelter for a few weeks, we couldn't take her home sooner due to the rules the shelter has.  She required a vet visit we couldn't get any sooner than Oct 31st.  We've enjoyed the time at the shelter with Sunny.  It's given us a chance to get know her rather than rushing her into the pack.

Sit 'n Stay in the Saddle with Brando and Bogart

We are very excited to introduce our newest blog.  Sit 'n Stay in the Saddle with Brando and Bogart will be about our travels in the west, and will include a soon to be new member of our family, a horse!  The pups have had a little experience with equine, so we've been reading up, and talking to animal handlers about the proper way to adapt them to our newest four legged family member.  This adventure has also been slow in the making to insure the safety of our children.  We want to make sure we have a perfect match all the way around.

We've also been trying to find things to do that we couldn't or hadn't done in Chicago or Albuquerque.  One of those things is to apply for a livestock brand.  Dont worry!  Nobody around here is getting branded, we hope to use it as a family logo.  There are so many wonderful brands.  They stand out proudly on the sides of ranch homes, on farm vehicles, or hang on handmade copper cut-outs at the entrance of a property.  Our brand is still in the approval stage.  Our daughter sketched a pup that looks like a Cavalier for our brand.  All fingers and paws crossed it will be approved, and as soon as it is, we'll post it here first!

Get along lil' doggies (and kitty friends too!) please join us at Sit 'n Stay in the Saddle with Brando and Bogart.

P.S.  We'd like to thank everyone for the kind words during our very awful relocation (Thank you Hawk BrownDog that's the perfect word!!!).  My Dogs Love Me even made me cry.  (Good tears!)Some of our friends have been asking what's been going on with the nightmare that won't go away, honestly, we've been trying to avoid the whole thing.  Since this relocation is not going away for a while, we'll share the horror story as our next post.  Thank you again, each and everyone of you means the world to us!
