Salty finished his conformation championship, and even got Best of Variety the last day!! That is the same as Best of Breed in dogs without varieties. Because he finished his championship, he doesn't need all his poofy hair anymore, so we (his breeder) cut it off. I think he looks so cute!

The guys at work went all out for my birthday. Well actually the ladies.
Balloons all over the floor, cool dog wrapping paper, a Nerd wall, streamers, and stickers put up on the wall. Fun times.
This is a picture I took of salty after I groomed him for his show this weekend. I posted it on Facebook and got lots of comments about how he looks like a Silky Chicken. I agree! In case you can't tell the difference Salty is above and a chicken is below...
As part of cleaning up my front yard I hacked up all the dead weeds and dug up as many as I could and raked up all the remains but I also chopped my rose bush way back. It had a lot of dead branches and overall was not doing well. Which only makes sense because I have never since I lived here watered it nor done anything except chop it back when it gets too big sometimes. I noticed as I was leaving my house today it looks extremely healthy. It's a very hearty rosebush I suppose. Look how green it is with no water ever. Plus it's gets urinated on almost every single day by Kipling. Maybe that secretly good for it?

That doesn't have quite the same ring to it. Here is a family portrait.
And here are a few photos from running on the Navy base the past few days. Fancy and the Malinois all love to roll in the grass. I like to take pictures of them doing it. Not only are they cute but they're enjoying it so much. I have realized / remembered that when you exercise your dogs they are so much less annoying in the house every night. They just lay down and go to sleep rather than roaming around getting into things or pacing or breathing on you or any number of other things that I wish they were not doing. Exercising dogs is important!
|Imagine the sound a race car makes here. He runs and runs and runs the entire time.|
This morning Pie was upside down and Kipling did not want to get out of bed.
We played at the Navy base dog park the other day and the dogs got very hot.
|I really like the symmetry in this photo. Notice Kip is in the middle.|
|Salty can never run as much or as fast as Kipling. But he tries.|
|Old and young.|
|Pie still loves to run even if she has slowed down quite a bit too.|
|"And they're off!"|
