Just like the blog title says, I love tail wags!
As the saying goes "dogs aren't our whole life but they make our lives whole!"
I'm originally a Buckeye from Ohio; but have lived on the west coast since 1986 and adore it here. I am a volunteer puppy raiser for Canine Companions for Independence and a lover of all animals.
The five service pups I've raised...

Visiting La Quinta for Scrap Booking
A very cool sunset the night we arrived.
My work station and Lyn's on the right.
Get aways are so fun.
Just to have a change of scenery... but it's even better to do so with friends AND also get to stretch my creative energies. In January Linda, Lisa and I ventured to La Quinta and enjoyed a weekend of scrapping at Dusty's.
It's a wonderful retreat for all you creative types! I spent the weekend working on Ever's puppy albums - one for Dad; one for me. I also worked on the Christmas gift I am handcrafting for my sister Natalie in Ohio.
At home, getting around to my projects it is so hard to sit down and get them done I find. There's always stuff needing done at home.
But if I go to Dusty's - she has everything AND I mean everything I need right at my fingertips. In 2 1/2 days I had a total of just 7 hours sleep. Stayed up until 6am the first night I arrived. Then Saturday night stayed up until 3am, to bed and then up at 7am to get back to the fun.
Here's a peak at Dusty's awesome "scrap shack" in the desert. Although being spoiled with all the supplies you can use and enough yummy food to send you home completely satiated -the word shack really is a HUGE understatement.

Supplies and more supplies....
and more supplies - I think you get the picture here!
Just bring your own photos and album and your ready to get at it...
Dusty is raising a CCI pup so I took as many photos of the dogs as the scrapping fun!
Her current pup is Novia ("Mia") and her release pup is Joanie.
They had a ball with Francie. Francie was so worn out we even caught her on the furniture (gasp!) napping.
