Yes, we know this is a year later, but all of us just found out.  We know Joel was proud that a dog he bred received such an outstanding award. 

As for us, all is going well.  During our walk this morning, Dad noticed that Sherman lifting his leg.  It sure is silly that hoomans feel something like that is so important.

I don't get it either. My Vickie called all her dog friends after I lifted my leg for the first time.

It's like "Come on" No big deal.

That is great about Molly too. She is a hero. We even heard about it a few months after it happened.

See ya soon
