Yesterday I went over to Jennifer Murphy's. PJ and Dave had kindly lent her their big dog/cat cage when her puppy Sugar Fox was a baby and took a dive off the second story deck! I had to pick it up and take it back to PJ and Dave as they are heading to the desert with their cat Neko and needed to get it packed in their trailer. Jennifer had picked up lunch for her and Mike and I. Barbecued ribs and Mexican food. YUMMMM! The groomer, Cheryl, was there and had bathed all three dogs and given them a nail trim.
Here is Bridey Murphy... keeping an eye on things outside...

Mike with Keeper and Heaven....

Jennifer with Sugar Fox....

LOL, worn out from the bath experience!

And in October when we went to Song Dog Kennels and first saw Sugar Fox...
She's growin'!!!
Today is one of those over the top exciting days... paying bills and working on Christmas cards... Have a good one!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.

Ok. Violin music is going in the stereo for breaks in the Christmas songs. This is a big writing week for me- music uplifts, tv slams down.
I played violin in my youth. But not very well. It was my oldest sister's instrument.

My Scottish grandmother played the violin too. I tried, but was not good at all. No musical ability!!! ox
