    Actually, we used to have 10; these two new guys make 12

    It's actually starting to get a little scarry. If Kris had to work outside the home, there is no possible way we could have this many dogs.

    Bruce do you ever take them all out together and if so, how do you manage them?

    I find three just about what I can manage without leads tangling hopelessly.

    We don't walk them outside together; an impossible task with that many.

    We have a fenced back yard, maybe 1/4 acre fenced, and we play with them and let them run out there. Their favorite play is when we stand on the deck with the laser light and they chase it. Their second favorite play is when we throw the miniture tennis ball off the deck and they retrieve it. About every other day we (Kris) cleans up the messes.

    The 2 x-pens we set up at the cabin in Duluth this past weekend gave them a chance to play, but it really wasn't much exercise.They had the run of the cabin whenever we were there, but we had to keep a really close eye on them. For peeing and pooping, Kris and I walked them two at a time; kind of time consuming, but what the heck, we were on vacation

    All of this reminds me of another of my pet peeves: people who don't pick up after their dog. The people in the cabin next to us had 3 dogs they were showing in obedience. Not once did they pick up after their dogs on their own! The whole time we were there, I always had a pocket full of plastic bags for cleaning up and even offered them a bag when I saw their dog mess. They used it then but that was the only time as far as I could tell. They, of all people, should understand; it's something that is really stressed at the shows.

    Oh Bruce they are gorgeous, lucky lucky you.

    So thrilled for you - as you know I'm a bit partial to Ruby boys myself I don't think I would have been able to resist these two

    Wow Grant did amazingly well to take Reserve at that age....everything crossed for his future...and for Chico too of course, they look stunning.

    Chico didn't come from Scotland by any chance did he??

    Bruce, I can't believe you could keep that secret!!! You lucky dog! The guys are beautiful. How wonderful that they get to share your home and are show potentials as well. Kris must be overjoyed with the new additions. Congratulations to you both. Please keep us up to date on their progress.

    Default so adorable!

    Bruce,

    Chico and Grant are GORGEOUS and only furthering my desire to have a ruby around the home

    Wrigley got a special card in the mail a few weeks ago asking him to return to the retirement home, so we're going tomorrow! He's hoping to run into George, a Parkinson's patient that just adored him. Wrigley spent the whole night playing with 3 cats (Tipsy, Rocky, Gabe) and one dog friend (Sparky). He's busy resting at my feet to get ready for the big day tomorrow!

    What's new with your extended dog family, Bruce? Any breeding going on soon?????

    Kris and Wrigs
