Happy New Year!

Happiest of New Year to you all!  This post will be a bit brief, since we are still trying to get our bearings in our new home, which we have that includes a backyard!  No real mishaps on our way from Texas to Oklahoma except for my prized possession, my Scott bike left on the side of I10.  That story is for another day.

Let me just say, Bernie Werns LOVES it.  After we picked them up from Howl A Day Inn, we arrived  several hours later at our home.  We came home to a light dusting of snow.  It was beautiful.  Bernie went out to the backyard and was galloping all around it.  I felt his happiness and his release of energy.  I’m happy he’s happy and I enjoy watching him explore.  Jack, on the other hand, he’s a bit more people oriented and enjoys being outside, if we’re outside.  This is something we are currently working on, so he’s not sitting by the door if we go inside, waiting to be let back in.

We’re still waiting on our furniture and other household essentials, but we picked up a few things for our new home and Eddie, Jack and Bernie just love it 🙂

I’m in the process of setting up my own dog training business here in OK.  I look forward to sharing this process and the experience with you all!

Again, Happy New Year!  May 2015 bring peace and new beginnings to you all!
