Memorial Day 2009-never the same again

Okay so remember how I had huge plans to get tons of stuff done this weekend? Well I got tons done, just not what I wanted to do in the first place,



Nope the Goodwill trip didn't happen. I took apart my dryer attempting to get to the bottom of that noise. Alas, Lampe's will be called and asked to come look at it on Tuesday. So I instead used the green method of doing laundry and line dried many a load. It was great sleeping in those clean blankets with that wonderful smell.



Garden-done and planted. Things are looking great. Landscaping-tons done. New flower beds in, planted. Weeds pulled, mulch applied. It looks awesome. Got stuff moved, agility equipment in new location and worked a little on the duck house.



House cleaned, ducks to their testing. Worked in the arena some -Moose has had some great workouts lately.



But the highlight, at this point in the day it's not really a highlight as I seriously need some sleep is that we have puppies. Shooter decided not to wait, which is okay as now I don't miss any work.



The litter was officially born on Memorial Day so of course the theme is Patriotic or Memorial Day. If you have any great suggestions, please post them here. There are 2 boys-1 red and 1 red brindle, 4 girls--THANK GOD! 1 red, 1 red brindle and 2 brown brindles. All are well marked, very unique and robust. Check out the website for updated details.

It was even more fun that the Winjammin Crew was coming over with their gang for BBQ--ummm good food including butterscotch bars! So they got to see the babies, we talked forever and came up with the new litter theme. Thanks for putting up with us sleep deprived hosts.

So I am now heading to bed. It was a long night with 1/2hr power naps as Alec called them. My contacts have been in for 48 hours and are in need of a good soak.


Here's a pic to hold everyone over till I get individual photos next week.



Later gators....

Sherilyn said...

You're close, Kim....we're thinking Sumjammin's I Want You and call him Sam. :)

Thanks again to David, Cindy, Alec and Meredith for hosting the Memorial Day BBQ, complete with the newborns! Couldn't ask for a better day!

Hugs! Get some much needed rest!

Phantom is glad that you are allowing him back into the house again, since he gave you enough girls to hold you for awhile. ;o)

Emmy is wanting a sleepover with Meredith too. hehe

Thanks for the hospitality and great fun!

Get some rest.

Congrats on the litter. Looks like you got lots of white. Very pretty little ones, but Shooter looks a little tired.

Kim said...

Beautiful, congrats!

Kathy and Kim Gibson said...

Okay one of those girls has to be named Rosie the Riveter

Cindy said...

You guys are good! Yes Rosie the Riveter is on the top of the list. Since we do have reds, we also want a Rockets Red Glare. Let's see-Liberty Belle, oh I forgot the rest-ugh. Anyway, yes Shoobug is very tired-there were a lot of puppies in there. We did loose 3-one as it took too long to get him out, one was just too small and unfortunately, she laid on one too. But that's okay, 6 nice health babies, especially girls. I'm game for a small litter after the last few big ones.
Thanks for coming over guys! I know the dogs had a blast and the food was awesome.

Since our kennel name is Lyberty - we have tons of patriotic names. How about: "Stormin Norman", "Desert Storm", "Give me Lyberty", "Yankee Doodle", "Betsy Ross", "Lady Liberty" This is such a fun category the list just goes on and on.....

Cindy said...

Great ones! Yes we spent the afternoon making a long list, which we have narrowed down to about a dozen. Just want to make sure we don't duplicate any-it's a great theme that lots of people use.

Oh Lest We Forget is one. We wanted to use Old Glory but we have a clydesdale named that - born on the 4th of July weekend, so it's taken.

Yes there is also a lot of chrome on these babies-love it! Few have split or full white ears, one girl has a white leg and shoulder-you'll get to see it in the one week photos I take this weekend.

Now it's time to work - ugh, hate short weeks-two "Monday's" to deal with !
