This Week…

For those of you who know the story…Tess is my Guide Dog for the Blind breeder dog due to delivery a puppy (yes, just one!) on or around July 2nd. She is doing great–full of life and bounce, as golden retrievers have a habit of doing. And being. Tess is the one on the far left–very white. The others are all dogs from Guide Dogs for the Blind–either breeders or puppies or career changed pups.

I’m going to take Tess up to Guide Dogs this weekend for her impending delivery. Gonna miss her! She’ll be gone for a while…she stays with her pup for six weeks. Stay tuned and I’ll keep you updated on Tess and puppy! This pix was taken just this morning…you can hardly tell she’s pregnant.

In other news this week…it’s finally a quiet week after a crazy June! A high school graduation,
my daughter’s baby shower, then my other daughter’s college graduation……all in one weekend! All great moments in a family’s life–we savored them.

And now it’s time for summer! For quiet mornings in my beautiful garden (best year ever! I think that bossy gopher has finally been thwarted), for reading the Psalms (summer and the book of Psalms just go hand in hand for me), for a LOT of writing (two big deadlines are looming), for talks and walks with friends, for coaxing my husband to play tennis with me, for appreciating this life God has given to me.

I hope the same for you!

    I am sure you will miss Tess, but at least you know she is coming back to you. You have had many important moments in your life recently. Now, you can sit back and savour them!

    I am a puppy raiser for GDB. First, I just wanted to say that in the photos above, my current puppy's mommy is the one 2nd to last on the right :). And I also wanted to ask, I am set to get a golden puppy in May and I am trying to find out who the possible parents may be. Is Tess still breeding? She is a gorgeous dog! Thanksm (:
