Breeder's Cup 2008 - Hats Off!



One of two...Zenyatta!

Nothing more be said.

Breeder's Cup Classic. What a race!

Way to go, Raven's Pass and Henrythenavigator!!
And Tiago!!!

Things just didn't work out for my favorite, since Barbaro, Curlin.
Considering everything, I was worried about the Euros and they came through. Truly a classic race.

But, I am looking forward to welcoming Curlin back to Churchill Downs, Kentucky!!!!

Election 2008

Another debate tonight will rob me of much needed sleep. Yet, I will stay up and watch and hope that the public will see who the best candidate is.
I could go on about all of the obvious, ... hasty decisions (Sarah Palin), the strong economy (not), the Party that landed us in this place, the loss of human life to a greedy war, disregard for fellow inhabitants of the earth, etc., etc. (Dang. I did go on a bit.) But, it looks like citizens of the United States are ready for a change; a move to the positive direction.

Be a part of that change...VOTE !

Beverly Hills Chihuahua

New Movie! Bet everyone who didn't get one during the Taco Bell surge is gonna want one. They are precious little creatures. My first, very own dog/doog, "Cutie Pie" (named her myself) was a Chihuahua. They may be a bit head-strong, but they are highly devoted. Please remember that they are very small, thus, despite sometimes a big dog demeanor, very fragile. They are meant to be a companion dog and tend to be a lap dog. That means, they should live inside where they are protected and warm and loved. Treat them as a child or at least a fellow living creature, not a disposable possession. And if you do decide you are up to being a good human to one of these little ones, check this out:

Little Dog Birthday!

Butten thinking about cake!

In case you are not aware, today is designated "Little Dog Birthday". Most of our pups (except Bug) have been rescued. So, we have had only a rough idea of when they were born. But it seemed like Oct. was about right for our first, a pound puppy, Challie (Jellybean Chalfonte..."Jellybean" never really fit) the second, street-wise puppy, Skippy (Skippy Peanut Butter...was retrieved from a four-lane parkway) and then, energetic Butten (found on another busy street that we now refer to as Butten Boulevard). All three whole-heartedly adopted Oct. 1st as their birthday.

Little Dog Birthday 1997

Butten, as it turns out, was his real "given", misspelled name. His owner had died and her son had just turned him out and didn't care whether or not he came back. I digress.

Anyway, today Butten carries on the tradition
celebrating his 17th birthday!
