Booey's Doing Well!

Other than running labby loops in the sand and finding mud puddles to splash in, Booey is doing well at Guiding Eyes.

She is currently in harness training but being evaluated for their breeding program as well.

She is well loved (and loving those around her well). She's such a kiss face!

It's great to see her off to a fine start.

We're cheering you on, Boo Bear!

The Puppy Passed!!

Booey passed her testing at Guiding Eyes for the Blind today with flying colors.

Her next step is a medical evaluation and then she begins her harness training.

She did it!

Three cheers for the puppy! She's come along way since that day we got her in March 2010.

Good Luck to Booey!

Barbara, aka Booey, leaves the Capital Region tomorrow for her testing and placement at Guiding Eyes for the Blind.

Many Puppy Bones to Barbara.

And thanks to everyone who was involved in her puppy raising.

She's going to change lives.

Bye Miss Boo.

Waiting for Spring

The calendar says April but ...

I took this photo today at our cabin. The boys were boiling down maple sap to make syrup, but the wind and snowpack felt much more winterlike than springlike.

We need sunshine! (And there's mixed precipitation in the forecast for tonight.)

Reviewing the Caroga Proofs!

The proofs have arrived.

I now have one week to perform a final check, dig a little deeper for a few facts, cross the t's and dot the i's, and send the proof back for final prep before it goes on the press!

Woo Hoo!

The book is scheduled for release on July 4.


P.S. The beach opens in 54 days!
