Well, the fun has begun.  It's stupid boy week at our house because Leia is here and she's in standing heat.  As many of you know, we're breeding Leia to Rowan and hoping for October puppies.  As a matter of fact, when we do the math, we realized puppies should be born right around the time Mark heads to Saskatchewan for his annual duck hunt.  Woohoo - I'll get to whelp puppies all by myself (that's sarcasm in case it didn't come through clearly).  We have 4 intact boys in our house, so a girl in standing heat makes for many locked crates and closed doors and walking everybody in separate little packs.  It adds a whole new dimension to looking after 8 dogs.  But we're very excited for puppies!

We've got visitors this week.  Leia and Reba arrived to stay while Wendy and Ron are on vacation.  So far it hasn't been all that exciting for them.  It's been a bit hot to do much of anything, although Reba seems to think that wallowing in the kiddie pool in the yard is very fun.
