We’re back in Layton, Utah, staying at the same Hampton Inn that we stayed at a week ago….a nice area with lots of restaurants…and a Barnes and Noble right next door!!! There’s lots of grass for exercising dogs, too…a prime consideration when traveling with five dogs!
Nationals concluded yesterday with 13″ CH. Jabrwoki’s Le Jazz Hot winning the National Specialty….a well deserved win for a very nice young dog. Starbuck Torbay Trouble After Midnite, sire of Sophie’s recent litter, was 15″ Reserve Winner’s Dog and I’m bringing home a very nice red & white bitch from Sophie’s second litter by CH. Someday’s Without A Trace, 15″ Reserve Winner’s Dog at the 2004 National Specialty. Ava (Talbot Hill Intermezzo) and her brother, Helio (Talbot Hill Incognito), went to live in Michigan with the owners of their sire, John and Elaine Frazier, when I got my diagnosis last fall. I’m grateful to them for taking such good care of the puppies…..and for letting me take Ava home with me this weekend.
We had a very nice dinner last night with our friends from Finland and Denmark. My dogs have introduced me to some wonderful people and taken me to some beautiful places. I had a great time this week in Estes Park!
