We lost our dear, Tessa, February 29th. Her grave memorial is covered with a hundred rocks, each from a trail she loved. We miss her terribly.
 

We got Stanzi on November 6 from her mom, Sunday, in Minnesota.  

She was nine weeks old and is growing at the rate of a pound a week!  

Lordy, we don't know how big she'll be when she stops growing!

 

Stanza's first walk on a leash.
She has enjoyed our fenced in yard until now.
But at sixteen weeks she's learning her first steps to the hiking trails, which she will have her first taste on Tuesday, January 3.
She obviously wants to be a great trail dog. Stanzi already loves to see us put on our boots or jacket, eager to get outside.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU FROM ALL OF US!

MAY THE LIGHT SHINE WITHIN YOUR HEARTS

WITH GREAT PEACE AND JOY!
