Finally managed to get Willow to sit still long enough to take her picture today - she had just finished "hiding" in her den (under our Willow tree) and decided to come out! I love puppies too! I could sit watching Willow for ages - she finds everything a wonder; be it trying to catch a fly or chasing the branches of the Willow tree as it moves in the wind??!! Is your Timmy the same?
I accidently erased you as a friend, can you please accept my plea for you to be my friend again. I made the same mistake that Ginger once did and was deleting friends before I realized what I was doing.
Was just reading your explanation of your name as gaeilge!! I thought that the Mac did not need the H as in MacFlannchaidh, only used with a vowel as in Ní Fhlannchaidh!? My maiden name is Mc Carthy so in Irish NíChárthaigh but my brother is MacCárthaigh! We need a gaelic scholar here!!;o))
I did learn Irish at school, but I have forgotten most of it!! The two main words for red are DEARG which is the vibrant colour(like painted objects etc) But RUA is the word used to describe the colour red of hair on people as well as animals-example:"Madra Rua" is the Irish for "fox" but it is actually literally "red dog"! Madra is the Irish for dog!! Thats all I can recall about red from school anyway!!
thank you very much Joan. I will try to add a few more soon.My daughter has now come back from 4 years at college in your country. she was in Tennessee and she loved every minute of it. we did visit her there too but unfortunately could only watch dog shows on the tv. speak to you soon
Yes I did show under Mr Jason Lynn(Maxim) .Unfortunately it was a very cold day with a freezing wind and yet they still did the judging outside. Most of the exhibitors were frozen and so some of the dogs did not perform as well as usual. We were asked to move our dogs much more than usual but the judge did not seem to place some of the best movers of the day. So we are still at a loss to know exactly how he was judging. I got shorlisted in a strong post grad class but in the end did not make the final cut. However I enjoyed the whole experience( not the cold though) and I will enter again under other foreign judges ,american or other. Regards . Catherine
Hi Joan - My poor boys have never seen snow... I am pretty sure Spartan, my eldest, would not rate it at all anyway - James would love it though. He loves water and although that isnt the same, he will spend a lot of time paddling in his little paddle pool in the summer!
