It is so exciting to have hard work pay off.  I have put the entire focus of my life for the last year and a half on my children and my dogs.  Sometimes it feels crazy walking away from the institutional career path outside of my home and kennel, but when something like this happens, it makes it all worthwhile.

On Friday, January 28th, my nine-year-old daughter Cordelia and my three-year-old male, Sam were featured on the front page of both the morning and evening editions of the Omaha World-Herald.  The paper edition will be scanned and uploaded when I get a chance.  The following link is a video that the Omaha World-Herald put together about their featured photos:

Here is also a slideshow that they put together of their photos, we are slides 3, 4 and 5:

If for some reason you can’t view the slide show, here are the stills from it.  Sorry that I can’t make them bigger (they are much larger in the slideshow).

We will be continuing our adventures at Pheasant Fest all weekend!

In Litter 2011 news, my 8 reservation spots have all been filled: 4 staying in Nebraska, then Missouri, Utah, Illinois and Nevada.  Should Sue have more pups, I think I’m also going to have a “maybe” contact list.  I’ll make a point of getting some pictures of pregnant Sue and posting them.  So long for now!
