News for November

This month was very sad. We had to say goodbye to our two dogs who were both very ill. Ned had cancer and was given 4 months to live, and Alice had kidney failure and had even less time. Our vet recommended that we have them put to sleep together so that neither dog would be alone in their last month, wondering where their lifetime friend had gone. They were both the best of pets and had traveled all over the US, Mexico, and Canada with us in the RV. We will miss them very much. We said that we would wait a while to get another dog, but after a few weeks went by, we started to wonder what we were waiting for. So we have purchased two puppies who will be arriving this coming Saturday Night. They are miniature piebald dachshunds and they are coming from New Mexico. Murray is a wirehair red and tan color, Elsie is a black and tan longhair. They are just about 3 months old, so I think we will be kept hopping for a while with a couple of energetic puppies running around. Allan is really looking forward to taking walks with his dogs again, he hasn't been able to do that for almost two years.

......In other news...... I have finished a couple of paintings which I am entering in the Empire Ranch 100 Show down in Tucson. Allan is entering some paintings as well and neither of us knows how it will turn out as most of the artists who enter that show paint horses, or cowboys, or Indians. But here are the paintings that I just finished. Love to hear any of your comments....
