I'm past 60 where life seems a little quieter, more patient, less demanding, less contentious. Folks long gone are more remembered; childhood is more missed, youth is forgiven. With the grey hair, that I'm still vain enough to dye, has come the understanding that life isn't forever and if I have something left to do, I better get with it.
First off, there were so many really good names, it was really hard to pick. I couldn't make a final decision until just be fore the 7:00 PM announcement. Thank you to everyone who submitted entries for the Name-my-puppy contest. It was so much fun to have so many names to choose from.
Janis is the winner. The name just fit him somehow and doesn't sound like any dog commands or names of other dogs we currently have. So Janis, congradulations, and please email me with the picture of your animal so I can get started your drawing. (You'll have to be a little patient with me, as this is a pretty busy time for us moving herds in preparation for take out. Hopefully I can get that back to you by the 15th of Oct.)
Also, anyone who has been following along here knows I kind of got myself in trouble picking a puppy for it's colour. Another puppy has fallen in love with me and I'm afraid I might have to switch my pick even though I've always wanted a red dog.
So the important thing about that for you, is that I used one of your suggestions for the black and white dog and I figured that person really deserved a prize too. So Rachel, if you don't mind waiting till 15th of Nov. I'll do one for you too. This little guy just looked like a Gus and when he's really good I can call him Augustuvus. So email me the picture of which ever animal you want me to draw as soon as possible too, OK? Oh, and my cowboy also loved your other entry, Rojo, and I think has picked it for his pup, so you are kind of double deserving.
Thankyou again, everyone, for all your suggestions. Sorry everyone of you couldn't win.
