Don't forget Grandparent's day!

I wanted to remind everyone that this Sunday, September 9th, is Grandparent's Day!! For my kids' grandparents and great-grandparents, they are going to whip up a batch of cupcakes, I'm going to take a picture of them wearing their aprons and cooking their little hearts out, then this weekend, we'll deliver each of them a plate full of chocolate cupcakes with pink icing and sprinkles AND a framed photo of them being made. That way even after the food is all eaten, they will have something nice to look at.

Here is an older picture of Ork. I had meant to snap a new one of him, but it was all rainy yesterday. He was born in Germany, trained in Pennsylvania with his first owners, then came to live with us four years ago. He is as sweet as he is beautiful! He is a Schutzhund II, which means he's highly trained in obedience, tracking, and protection; actually, he is quite amazing to watch! His absolute favorite way to pass time is playing fetch with his tennis balls! We love ya, Orkie!

Ork is so handsome! Also, I love your website - very cool background (and the 4 little boxers are adorable.) Good stuff!

Ork is quite hamdsome. I am sure that Grandparents will be very pleased with their cupcakes.

What a handsome young man you have there! We dream about getting a German Shepherd from the Monks of New Skeets one day, that will be the only big dog we want.

Love your profile pictures too. They are Bostons, right? Guess I'm partial to the flat face :-)

OK. How many dogs do you have? I've seen Orkie. You have Harlan, are there any more I'm missing?????

Thanks for all the comments on Orkie!

Vivian, you are right that the 4 little dogs on my profile picture are Boston Terriers! (But Jennifer, they are not at all offended to be confused with Boxers, who are also great dogs!)

Cindy, I have a total of 10 very pampered pooches! There is a button under my profile, if you'd like to see pics of my kennel, where we raise, show, and train our dogs in conformation, agility, obedience, and/or Schutzhund.

We have four Bostons - Maizy, Capone, Gracie, and Pixi; five German Shepherds - Ramses, Ork, Schatzie, LaRoux, and Molly; and one sweet bloodhound named Harlan.
