AKC Dog Show Mom

As the wise adage states, we fear what we don't know... Well, I no longer fear the AKC Dog Show. Leo and I popped our dog show cherry this weekend at the Birch Run Puppy Show put on by the Saginaw  Valley Kennel Club. As usual I was a totally nervous wreck of a mom. I have such a fear of letting Leo

Spring Cleaning

I am not sure what it is about spring, maybe the whole rebirth thing and wanting to be reborn in a clean and organized new world... Spring does drive me into a cleaning frenzy. Obviously since deep cleaning is referred to as spring cleaning I am not the only one with these urges. This weekend I was finally able to dig into my

Loves of my Life

As jealous as my Spinoni Italiano get when I come home from a pet photography shoot with the scent of another dog on me, I think inside they must rejoice that they are not yet again the main subjects. My Spinoni Italiano are so patient and kind with their crazy camera obsessed mother! Today Leo and Tessie were both beyond wonderful as I

The Twos Have It

We were warned early on that Spinoni don't really "turn on" until there two. Well, our first is just now turning two and by golly, she seems to have matured over night. Even little things just all of the sudden work. I have been trying for a year to get her to catch a tossed treat, and every time I tried the darn thing hit

Harper and Friends

  What a wonderful adventure with Harper and her feline friends! Such a great group of critters. Their hoomans aren't so bad either... Tons more to weed my way through, but for now this is it until I get some dinner on the table!

A Day with My Boy

The camera was in LOVE with Leo today. What a wonderful time we had exploring the dunes. We had the WHOLE place to ourselves! We were out on the dunes for hours and only ever saw one other person at a distance. It was wonderful... So peaceful, and I was able to let Leo run without fear. A couple more weeks and the

Thankfully Reunited

Wow, what a scare we had over the weekend! My body is still recovering from the stress, as is Leo's. Still not sure exactly what happened, but Leo obviously got into something that did not agree with him. After his lunch feeding on Friday, about 12:30, he started throwing up. The first two seemed like a regurgitation from eating too quickly, which he does regularly

Joyous Adventure

 There are so many things that we can learn from dogs. In so many ways they are much better at living life than we are. Since I live with three of these incredible critters I feel that I need to honor the lessons that the provide by sharing my experiences with my babies. Today's lesson is one of the most obvious. Be present. Enjoy

Welcome Home Leo

So sorry for the lack of communication lately, I have been very busy lately getting puppy prepared. We are so excited to welcome Stella del Nord Tolstoy's Greatest Work, Leo for short, into our pack. The greatest Christmas gift ever! He has been a pure joy so far, and is fitting well into our little family. I can't wait to share lots of
