Richard and I were down town at the credit union and saw a crowd. We were on our way to TaeKwon do and that is why he is in his uniform. When we found out Sarah Palin was there we had to stop. Richard got to meet her, get an autograph, a hug and his picture on the front page of the newspaper.

Jed was born in June of 1996. We took him home in August of 1996. He was not the puppy we had picked out. When I went to get him all the puppies were gone and the girl did not keep it straight who picked out which puppy. But I took Jed and he cried all the way home. He had very hard puppy years and I was so glad that we had gotten him because maybe someone else wouldn't have been so patient with him. He went to puppy school and graduated by running an obstacle course. Some funny memories of Jed are that he chewed the plug in off my car, he chewed the rubber tread off of Carl's snow machine, his tail was very deadly and chopped off the top of one of my plants. The plant came out of it and I still have it. After the puppy years Jed grew into a wonderful dog. He was a loyal, loving dog. One time when I had the flu he laid by my bed the whole day. Every morning for 13 years Jed has gotten up and came to the side of my bed and checked on me. He would touch me with his nose and then go back and lay down. He was my best friend and our family misses him very much. I know that he and Reggie are running together right now. By Jed.....We love and miss you so much.

Gracie is a fun dog. She is full of IT! Not much gets passed her.
She is very cuddley and loves to steal food off the coffee table.
Last night she stole mom's string cheese. When it went missing, we knew exactly who took it. She is fun and cracks us up. The vet put her on a diet and you would think she is starving to death. She has slimmed down, but don't you dare drop anything on the floor when you are cooking. She is very fast. She also loves to give kisses.

Mom and I had a wonderful time last weekend. Sister Beck, the General Relief Society President came to Fairbanks. What an uplifting and spiritual experience. She is so beautiful inside and out. This photo was taken at the enrichment meeting that Sister Beck spoke at. I got to meet her and mom and I both got a hug from her. We left there eager to be better woman.

Hi everyone. What a fun day we had. We took the dogs to Petco for some spa treatment and when we got there they were taking Valentine pictures with your dog. So of course we had to have one. Wish I know how to get it onto this blog. anyway, when we picked up Jed and Gracie they were so beautiful and Gracie got her toenails painted PINK. Now they are asleep and tired out from their day at the spa.
Hope you are all having a fun weekend.
