In my heart I am a New Englander

I think in my heart of hearts I will always be a New Englander. I love Michigan, just like I love Pomeranians. But Samoyeds will always come first and New England will too. It has been a great year for New England fans...and like many of us...I just wish my Grandmother would have been able to see it! (She would have turned 107 on December 21st so that would have been a stretch) Anyway, congratulations to the 16 - 0 NE Patriots!

It's my birthday and I'll...

....groom if I want to. Yessireee! One of my favorite things to do on my birthday is to groom my Samoyeds. Poms don't count....just Samoyeds on this day. So Boston, Korbel and Treasure each got their nails clipped, feet trimmed and a complete brush out! Treasure kicked me with her back foot while I was working on it. Treasure your kick is nothing compared to your great grandpa who once got me directly in the eye with a big huge dirty paw while I was grooming him! So there! I'm not sure they think this is a good way to celebrate but at least they each got a treat. They look so beautiful now in the back yard playing in the snow.

Later tonight is our kennel club dinner party and we are going with my in-laws. A great way to celebrate a birthday...with dogs and dog people!

Merry Christmas

Mike loves his new Salvadore Dali etching and he is still wearing the slippers that he took out of the LL Bean box. Wrangler really LOVES the tree. Me? I love my Pomeranian boots!
I know what your thinking. Yup I checked...they don't make Samoyed boots. I found these when we were in South Haven a couple of weeks ago and I sent a letter to Santa to ask him to drop a pair off at my house. Thank goodness he remembered and had room on his sleigh!

Romantic Get-away

Mike and I celebrated our anniversary with a romantic getaway to South Haven's Inn at the Park which is a bed and breakfast we love to visit. Dinner out at Tello's and shopping in the many downtown boutiques made for a delightful evening. Here is our special room we like complete with fireplace and jacuzzi tub.

First Show

Treasure had a bath and got all beautiful for her first dog show last weekend. Here she is outside the ring. She loved all the attention, treats and petting she got from fellow exhibitors, judges and friends. In fact, so much so that when we ask her if she wants to go in her crate, she runs to the door to the garage. "Yes, mom as long as the crate is going to a dog show!"
