Happy Holidays!

A pic from Geno!
Dom with a NICE whopper of a Christmas present -- and Helmut, the Anatolian, up close in a sweet holiday blackberry picture.

Here's a Christmas pic from Rebecca showing Helmut's sister, Jasmine. Jasmine has happily adopted Rebecca's daughter's pug puppy for a bud. :)

Holidays and the end of the year can be such a mix of celebrations and losses. We've had great sadness over the untimely passing of several Anatolians and of other dogs belonging to friends and acquaintances in recent months. Two of these Anatolians were littermates to Ruya. One died after spay surgery and the other appears to have died in her sleep, cause unknown. :(

I also finally discovered the reason for the recent weird computer behavior and keyboard malfunctions when my motherboard suddenly failed in the middle of December. So apparently it had been gimping along and causing illogical patterns of malfunction. The good news is that despite the fact we couldn't plan a budget for this unfortunate event, the rebuild of this desktop machine is coming along nicely, albeit, a bit slowly. But it will be a pretty nice machine soon enough. Here's a useful page that was very helpful when I discovered a crash and a bad driver install had corrupted networking services in my registry.

Sending belated Christmas and holiday wishes for all. May the new year be brimming with the good things; with happiness, health, good luck, prosperity and success for us all. :) There is so much for which to be thankful.

Couldn't resist posting a fun video of Lucy tackling a job at a chocolate factory. Captioned, of course!

Meet Jasmine!

Jasmine in a winter scene last year in Washington state.

Jasmine is a spayed littermate sister to Coco and Helmut (born Oct 2006) and I recently got new pics of her, Yay!
First some older pictures of her during her first year and a pic of her at one year while she plays with her neighbor doggie friends.

Do you think she fits in here any more? ;)

Some puppies are ball driven. Others are driven by ball driven puppies.
In the latter case, the object is somewhat bigger and a little more difficult to carry around! :D

Jasmine with an awesome older friend and mentor named Sam.
Sam now watches over Jasmine and family from Rainbow Bridge.

Through thick and thin over the years before Jasmine, he was a bracing, comforting, loyal, loving, guardian and friend. Sam will never be forgotten.

Jasmine the kid sitter. Or is it Puppy Sitters and Jasmine? :)

Jasmine trying out a carting harness. In the future, she may know a lot about carting! I'm looking forward to her book! ;)

Jasmine with friends in one of the most recent pics at one year of age.
