Hi All: All this past week, in between working on the work, I've been switching mini schnauzers from one crate to the other. Chanel, at 8 months, is in full bown season and poor Boomer is all hot and bothered. Figure we have another couple of days before the 'acceptance' phase is over. Can't arrive soon enough. I feel so sorry for Boomer -- he's ready, able and willing but Chanel puppies are not on my horizon -- ever. Spay scheduled for April 29th. Had hoped to have puppies next year (a big maybe) but Chanel is soooo small, only about 5 pounds, that having puppies is not an option. Funny thing, I looked and looked for a parti-female that would grow out large enough to breed and while Chanel's parents are 14 and 16 pounds, she's a tiny, so not gonna happen (Howard is thrilled).
The book progresses...slowly. Sure hope the second half picks up.
Turned around from writing this to discover that it's snowing -- great big, fat, fluffy flakes. Glad I'm inside with a woodstove. Not a fan of snow. I think it's only pretty to look at for about the length of time it takes to drink one or two cups of coffee. Poor Howard -- he's down feeding the ponies. Bet he's gonna come home a happy camper...not. Ta, Shirlee PS. Howard just came in -- with a big bouquet of flowers for me! Now is he a great husband or what?
