I forgot to explain why Hazel came to us from Colorado. An online friend showed this picture of her puppy named Mojo.
I fell instantly in love and found out he came from Rancho Fiasco in Elizabeth, CO and yes, they would have one litter the following winter. I was told male dogs are much calmer but I wanted a girl to be named for my mom Hazel. Here are the two girls from that litter.
She is the only purchased purebred dog I’ve ever had and will always be the only one, I’m sure. Yesterday my hairdresser told me she was buying a very expensive puppy because shelter dogs were undesirable. I do not agree and I am offended by her comment. She has never owned a dog and I can’t imagine this will turn out well. Maybe I need a new hairdresser?
Last week was a huge blog week – first the 35th anniversary of the wonderful Des Moines Register article. (And btw, how could you read it? I had trouble reading those blurry words once I enlarged it!). Then came Connie’s 70th birthday and then Hazel’s Gotcha Day. Whew! I have loved reading your comments! Keeps us all connected, you know. Please don’t be afraid to leave a comment!
I watched so much basketball yesterday I had dreams about basketball last night. And today will be another day of games – my favorite two weeks of the year! Iowa teams all fell out yesterday – all except Iowa women and Caitlin Clark, one the the nation’s top players.
Off to do chores and get ready for the games!
