I can't believe that Christmas is here already with New Year's chasing right behind. Where has this year gone?? I would say it has been a busy year for us we (Linda) had alot of construction and decorating to do plus we added a new sheltie member, Noah, which as you know it takes alot more of your time with a new puppy.All in all it has been a good year a few bumps but we are learning to glide over them:) We want to wish all our Sheltie friends, our family and other friends a very Merry Christmas may you all be blessed in this up coming year. We look forward to meeting up with some of you at shows this spring. We are having snow on the ground this Christmas so Santa will be able to land his sled with no difficulty. I have posted a few new pictures of the gang enjoy.

Moving In

The dogs finally have their own area where everything is now organized and easy to find :). The crates have been set up, the monitor is on, and the dogs have settled in quickly. It was a lot of work Linda did most of it herself, while her dad did some with her and told her how to do some things but the construction, plastering, painting, laying the floor and using the nail gun was Linda hands on! She can now build her own place after this adventure. I kept going in and saying “I just thought of this” after awhile no one wanted to see me in the area as it meant more work. I have put up some before during and finished pictures so you can see what was there and what we have now. It is a pleasure to do the dogs now and they can watch tv while having a bath :D
I ended up putting the pictures in three posts because there were just soo many pictures!!
Scroll down for the rest of the posts.

Walls came down to the studs

The area is about 95% done, just some finishing touches here and there left to do.

Today it was finally nice out. Its been raining for what it seems like forever and the dogs were ready to use up some of their engery! Since it was also very warm out (over 60 degrees) we decided to take them to do pictures. However where we usually go for pictures was we drove them to their favorite place to fun and play the beach near our house. It was Noah's first trip to the beach, and in his normal fashion he was very laid back and nothing bothered him. We did not get too many pictures as they were too busy to stay still :) And now they are all exhausted from their outing!

Today was a fun day for all at the Colonial Shetland Sheepdog Club match. We started with the puppy match Noah had his first time of grooming and prepping at a show site. He was so good and excited by all the activity going on. As a added bonus Noah’s sister, Tansey, was also at the show they are so cute together tails wagging, little kisses and as soon as he hears Connie’s voice his tail doesn’t stop(Connie you leave a happy lasting memory with your puppiesJ). Everyone had positive words for Noah and he did well in the ring. A few more months and he will be showing and completing regularly. We also showed Molly who did well and Mia went for the ride and sights. Mia was a little upset with Linda as she wasn’t the star attraction today at some point she decided to ignore all of us and turned her back to the group. Next time Mia it will be your turn we promise. After a full day it was home again and everyone was exhausted. Noah has been in a coma sleeping, waking to eat, play and nightly night again. I must say it was nice to see old friends again and catch up on the news and see all the new puppies that will like Noah be in the show ring soon. We have put some pictures on hope you enjoy them.
