Swede William's sisters and nephew enjoyed the American toys!
Swede William's beautiful mother, Sotis, with our host Krister
Lisa and Krister's own Very Old Dog, sweet Tindra:
And here is Swede William's beautiful home town of Orebro:
We said goodbye and a HUGE thank you to Krister, as we stole his wife and headed north to Enkoping (pronounced eeyinshooping if you can believe it) for the Fifth International Whippet Congress, to be followed by The Swedish National Whippet Show. Lisa brought William's litter sister Bree, and his nephew Stavros, so I said a sad goodbye to the rest of the dogs. The Congress is at a GORGEOUS estate, Kragga Manor, and it's supposed to stop raining tomorrow!
The news from Bill is:
All is well back here. I have my morning routine down pat. I'm up about 5:30, get dogs an hour later, feed said dogs, walk M P, Maria, and Beans around the block, sit on porch for 5-10 mins waiting for Karen, and when she arrives at 7:20 we take two walks with the other 6, I take 2 dogs and K takes one. Then...K leaves, and I pick up poop, and by 8:30 the morning routine is done. (I'm getting good at pooper scooping.)
Dogs are well, everyone has a voracious appetite. F C is sleeping on the bed with me and Beans.
(M P is Mama Pajama, F C is Fat Charlie, and Beans is Giacomino, aka Very Old dog.) Karen is our Dear and Wonderful Neighbor (thank you Karen).
I am one of the luckiest women alive.
Hug your hounds oh how I miss mine
