Deirdre took Reserve Winner's at a recent dog show in Woodstock, CT. She is shown with her handler Philip Moore, who will be handling her in the Futurity/Maturity on June 7 in Middletown, CT. The Winner's Bitch took Best of Breed and placed in the Herding Group, so I thought she did pretty good.

This is the official win photo from the dog show where Deirdre got her first point. Doesn't she look beautiful?! She loves to show and is finally growing up.

My friend Holly's Cardigan Welsh Corgi took Reserve Winner's Bitch at the dog show on Friday, 4/3/09. Isn't she cute?!

Gaiting around the ring and down and back. The judges look at sidegait and movement going away from them and to them. Deirdre loves to show and especially likes all the extra treats she gets!

Scenes from the show on Friday, 4/3/09.

Alicia - being Alicia. She is just so cute!

My nieces Sarah & Meagan got a karoake machine for Christmas and convinced Auntie Maureen to sing with them.

An Irish Santa my sister had set up at her house, amidst her Belleek pottery, with an Irish blackthorn stick and a curling stick in the background. Very Celtic!

My nieces, Sarah, five and Meagan, four, got an early special visit from Santa. They were thrilled. He bought a gift for each of them and they had a gift for him too, pictures that they had made for him.

The full moon in December, just before dawn. Yes, I am up that early! (I have to take the dogs out!) Beautiful, isn't it?!
