This just in... In the recent Westminster Dog Show, schipperke DeLamer's Fire Island Fox placed fourth in the Non-Sporting Group. Of course our three are the most beautiful dogs in the world, but this schip is rather good-looking. Our three are also very sporting!

Takes a while to load, but there is a short video on the American Kennel Club's Schipperke listing that gives a glimpse of the energy and personality of these little canine race cars.

And a walk down memory lane ... Here's the new website for the hamlet of Roundup, Montana designed by the rescuer of our very own Melanie and Jordan, Sandy Church, also the hostess of the Schipperke Roundup 2000, in which we learned that 70 or so humans can almost control as many little black devils!

Sorry to be remiss in our reporting the latest THREE SCHIPPETEER adventures, but we've been experiencing a rash of WAR not A WAR stress. Apparently the same is true this week for Dave Letterman, who is taking a sick day or two (his first since quintuple bypass surgery) with a blown out eyeball. STRESS can get to you. Miss Melanie has been under RAINFALL stress: it's just too darn hard to crouch in wet grass - easier to relieve onesself on nice, warm throw rugs indoors. Not that she isn't let out at appropriate times. NO, this girl is empowered. She chooses when and where to relieve her own WAR not A WAR stress.

But were it not for the THREE SCHIPPETEERS, things would be a lot more depressing. Unlike the Melanator, Skipperdoodle loves how the wet ground feels under is rapidly running tootsies. Tonight the great Jordanovich proved that he has spent too much time with the bunnies when he followed a table-clearing Daddy into the kitchen, all the while hopping vertically on his hind legs! (Saw it with my own eyes.)

And I believe we should all take a lesson in relaxation from Puma, our feline D'Artagnan, who seems to in turn have taken a lesson from the reptile world and here is employing a camouflage strategy of Which End Is Which.

Puma kicking back ... or up ... or ...

Last week we were graced by the hilarious and remarkably well-mannered Chile Boy. Our friends Mark and Mary Jane adopted this Boston Terrier/Chihuahua mix a mere 3 months ago, but the little lover boy is right at home. We're all quite smitten and his exceptional behavior means he will be a frequent visitor to Skippertown, home of doggy chaos.

Chile Boy, ready for anything!

This morning, CNN showed The Prez out walking his little black Scottie dog in a HUGE BLIZZARD. The Prez was very much bundled up and all alone in a 3D sea of white. The Prez was having trouble getting the Scottie to come to him. Apparently, even The Prez's Dog wants PEACE.

Playful Dogs

This grey morning in Albuquerque,
a hawk circles over our BunnytownUSA.
Harrassed by a crow, it hovers still circles...
first to the west then higher toward the east.
Birds call and rabbits run as all the
the world stews in fear factories of our own making
and life seems to stand still on a precipice of invisible wind.

This grey morning in Albuquerque,
our lives teeter totter on a circling vortex.
Loaded with bombs of confusion and disillusion,
we are called to rise on hawk wings into a blind sky
ominous, still, and huge beyond our frail imagining.

This grey morning in Albuquerque,
after intermittent downpourings,
our ground wet is with dread.
And, on some far piece of soil
there is the blood of blessed rabbits
taken by lightning fast hawks and playful dogs
shaken in their yearnings for new toys.

Leave No Rug Behind
We all have our slogans be they Democratic, Republican or Schippercan.
Our dear sweet adorable Miss Melanie seems to have embraced the above as her slogan of the moment.
We have several throw rugs in the 'dog' room (fortunately, also the 'laundry' room) for which Miss Melanie has dedicated herself. There seems no sign of urinary infection or ANY reason for her need to Leave No Rug Behind except that she wants to just Leave No Rug Behind.

Very interesting article in our morning paper, the Albuquerque Journal about a huge in progress Collie Rescue in Montana. We will be forever indebted to the Sandy Paws rescue of Montana for two of our three schipiteers...

Our hearts, prayers, and good wishes go out to families of those astronauts who fell to earth in flames at Mach 18 from 200,000 feet.
