Hallelujah! The Last Day of School

At long last (for the kids, not us), the last day of school! We sure are a long way from that first day of school in September (see picture at left), and it's been a great year. We don't have much planned this summer, mostly concentrating our efforts on getting a dog. I'm planning my vacation time around that, and I'm hoping it will work out.

We keep having near misses for puppies, but we decided we would also want a male dog, which gives us a little more flexibility when getting on breeders lists. I spoke with two breeders today (near Buffalo) who will be confirming pregnancies next week, so if their dogs are expecting the puppies will be born in mid-to-late July, which would put us in puppyland by mid-to-late September. Not ideal timing, but at least there will be a lot of nice weather left.

For now, though, we all are heaving a sigh of relief as the kids look forward to long summer days and, most especially (for Annalisse mostly), staying up later and sleeping in!
