Our little Wendy is seven months old and enrolled in Pre-Agility classes at our dog club. She has already completed Puppy Kindergarten.
The classes are so much fun that Wendy just collapsed into a deep sleep when she got home. So cute!

It is good to be home and preparing our favorite foods.
Above you see a Norwegian treat, Grav Laks that we enjoy making at home. It takes a few days to prepare, but it is worth the wait.
If you'd like to give it a try, the recipes for the salmon, eggs, sauce, and bread are here:
It's always good!

As I write this, I'm in Ohio where it is still dead in the middle of winter. I'm working on mind games, though going through images I took at our hotel when we were recently in Florida.
Seriously, we will be going South again in a few weeks. As much as we enjoy the weather in Florida, there's no place like home.
All the best,

We need to build a new room on the house to display Penny's ribbons and certificates. On Saturday and Sunday last weekend she earned all of the above at an AKC Agility Trial.
Many of Penny's ribbons and certificates are displayed on walls in our home. Many more are part of an enormous life-time collection she has now all categorized in safely in storage drawers.
Our daughter, Catherine, trains and shows Penny and our other dogs. What a team!
I had to brag a little once again.

Here are a few more images from our recent visit to Viera Wetlands. Above you can see an observation platform where you can get a higher angle to see and photograph.
The Viera Wetlands is formed with recycled waste water.

Wendy is enjoying a (pet store) "bone" filled with peanut butter. She will tell you all about it:
It is fun to watch the interaction. Our three dogs don't show any aggression toward each other, but they do patiently stay close when there is something they would like to have for themselves waiting for an opportunity to quietly get it.
They are so cute.

Anna stopped home from XU between classes and sat down on the couch to tell me about her day. Erik got on her lap to be sure she didn't leave soon.
The pictures from my phone camera aren't great, but they sure are cute.

I'm having a good time going through pictures we took just after we got home from the high seas. We were away a week longer than scheduled so made it just in time to come home to a delicious Christmas dinner made by daughter, Catherine.
Above is grandson, Alex, who just fits one of the love seats in front of the fireplace. He does a great job of entertaining himself with a Christmas gift. ;)
It is so good to be home. We're glad we made it just in time to celebrate the holidays with family at home, even though we weren't here early enough to put up all the usual decorations.
All the best,

Very close to some of our favorite stores there's an IHop. Since we believe we should never shop when we are hungry, we stop in here once in awhile on shopping days.
It was all so good that we declined dessert, BUT...
