Leah's theatre group, Theatre Arts for Kids, in Lincoln, NE performed ANNIE last weekend.
You can see Mij pictured with 3 orphans in the top photo. I am proud to say that Mij has really embraced the acting experience. She used to be a little nervous about the lights and crowd. This time, she sauntered out on stage, gave it a stretch like she had been taking a little nap, glanced at the audience, and sauntered off.
She was perfect and her human Nana could not have been more proud.
"As Long As Children Sing". I noticed there were some teary eyed singers as well. We did this to honor the memory of my long time friend and choir assistant, Mary Jo Harlow. Mary Jo passed away this summer. This was the first time since it's beginning in 1992 that Mary Jo was not present for a concert. Actually, I am fairly certain she made it for the show.
Finally, what would a blog be without a report on the Poodle puppster. He is 5 and a 1/2 weeks old now and gets to come home with me in 2 short weeks. I have toys and crates and blankets and collars and leashes and books galore, all preparing me for his arrival. He is the guy on the left with the green collar. His sister is on the right. She is going to stay for potential breeding purposes. The big news is, Jean Miller, owner of Solo Standards has assured me these little guys are not going to turn silver as previously expected. She think Tundra (my little guy) will eventually turn blue, sort of a steely grey color. That will be perfect, since I intended to name him 'Blue'. If he stays black, I will have to have a back-up plan for his name. I read online, that a blue poodle will have slight brown overcasting on his coat until he changes to blue. You will also be able to tell on the face when you clip them at 8-10 weeks, if their clipped hair color is lighter than their body color. If so……blue it is.
We will have to wait to see.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to Everyone,
