Of Dogs and Sheep

Are you watching the Westminster Dog Show? Tonight is the second night and I am enjoying watching the Sporting Group while dinner is cooking.
These are two of my favorites from yesterday

Irish Wolfhound and Scottish Deerhound
(Can you tell I like BIG dogs!)
Although I believe people should adopt dogs from shelters because there are just too many without homes and I also believe that there should be stricter laws against puppy mills and irresponsible breeders, I still enjoy watching these champion fancy dogs strut their stuff in the Garden. It just makes me happy (and who couldn't use some happiness no matter how brief these days ...)
Another thing that makes me smile is sheep! I love photos of sheep, especially lambs--too cute. If you need a smile, check out Kristin's blog.
On a serious note: I am gravely worried about all the folks in Australia dealing with the wildfires. I hope that none of the wonderful quilt bloggers Down Under are affected by the fires. Please know my thoughts are with you.

I totally missed the dog show. We usually watch them all.
Working on my tag list. Having trouble thinking of 10 things folk might not know because of earlier type post.

Those were two of my favorites in the show.

I went on facebook to see who was there but I agree-my place will remain "in the slow lane"
