New Award and another Brag!

Mom had a breakthrough and figured out how to copy this award from Dewey Dewster! I think Mom needs an award for figuring this out! (yea, clap clap)

I'd like to pass this on to:

Isabella (our long-lost poodle pal!)

and probably everybody I know has already been tagged! Oh well...

Mom didn't think to take pics of the garden today, our big conservation effort these days, but for the other challenge of Dewey's, here are a couple of things we're doing to conserve around here:

We got a newer, more energy-efficient front door last year (and windows in 2004) --

Replaced a lot of old gray PVC pipe in the kitchen with copper, since the old stuff tends to BREAK (ask Mom and Uncle Dennis about the Great Flood of 2005). Wasted a lot of water that night and on earlier leaks!

They try to keep the lights turned off a lot:

("Hey I can't see in here!")

And now I have another brag for ya -- been saving this one ---
I'm a cover boy in the latest issue of our Bedlington breed quarterly! They featured some performance Bedlingtons and Mom got me a pic on the cover with some of my pals! Check it out, I'm on the lower right, flying out of an agility tunnel in Louisville KY last year:

Then all the Moms wrote a little bit about their doggies on the inside. Mom's article is on the right (you'll want to click on it to be able to read anything!)

Mom thought this issue was the best since the cover looked so nice. They usually have someone's dog show win picture and that gets really old after a few hundred issues.

You all have a great rest-of-the-weekend!
