My Not So Little Budlet

My precious nephew, Ben - no longer my little budlet.  Think I'll save that for his high school graduation.

On days like today I greatly appreciate the amount of work groomers do everyday.  No baths or blow-outs today, just nails, teeth, ears and brushing. I did do a little scissoring on Gus, Eli and Ava to keep their coats where I want them for upcoming shows. And it was all Smooths.  My shoulders, arms and fingers are in knots and on fire.    So to groomers everywhere and to Sahra in particular--HOW DO YOU DO THIS EVERY DAY??

This is Declan's championship photo from November.  I think he is pretty happy to be done playing show dog.  Time will tell if he has any aptitude for obedience.  He has shown good basic skills in herding, hopefully later next year he can continue that training.  And there are a couple of lovely ladies in his future too. In the meantime it's long romps in the yard, walks to the mailbox, a good bone to chew on and belly scratches.
