So, in other news, Serena's grand-dogs are competing at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show this week.
Serena has been watching the live stream. (I think she might need reading glasses as she keeps leaving nose prints on the screen!)
She had to wipe away a tear of happiness when her grand-dogter Vivienne got her American CH status.
Serena is a former champion too. She was best Frenchie in Canada in 2008 (CH Foxmoor Petit Cherie Nevertheless.) So that she is not too disappointed by her demotion to pet status in the suburbs, every now and then I give her a round of applause. I was explaining this to a friend of mine - how I feel responsible for keeping the ego intact of a former champion - and she looked at me and said "You couldn't just get a regular golden retriever like everyone else."
Of course not.
A friend of mine gave me a buddha board as a housewarming gift this weekend. I've always wanted one of these. I have trouble letting things go and this will help me in that process.
I bought myself some roses in anticipation of Valentines Day:
And maybe a little something else:
Well, kittens, I have to get back to my painting and drawing. I'm in the final stretch so wish me luck!
