Things that make me happy and one that doesn't

Bad news first... I had to put my little liver shunt puppy to sleep. He made it to almost 5 months which was way longer than we had expected, but he suddenly lost his energy and desire to play and then had 3 seizures within 36 hours. My vet is so supportive. She always makes me feel like I've made the right decision. Guess after all these years she knows long much of an effort it is for me, even after I've reached the point where I know I don't have another choice. I can't tell you how important it is to have a good relationship with your veterinarian.

Now, things that have tickled me in the last couple days...
1) Ringling has a bull calf born 1/19/09 whose name is: Barack.
2) Barbaro has another full brother, still unnamed, born 3/10/09. Lots to look forward to with Nicantor now 3 and Lentenor 2. And mom is going back to dad again this year.
3) Ty Murray is doing great on Dancing with the Stars. His first night was rough... as it was for many contestants... but every week he's gotten more relaxed and this, the 4th week's, performance was terrific. Of course, Gilles Whose-last-name-I-don't-know and Melissa from the Bachelor are the top contendors and my money is on the Frenchman.

And Cotton, my mini Whoodle backcross, was in season and had her way with Brogue (or maybe it was the other way around!) So now fingers crossed for a month or so!

Oh, and the deck is all finished except for the rear where the railing isn't up. We're going to leave it off until I decide what to do about the ramp.
