Sunday, March 28th

Even with our 13 hours of sunshine today, we only got up to around 40. In fact, they are predicting snow for Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. I had been led to believe spring was here because I did see about 2 inches of tulips and hyacinths peeking up out of the dirt in a downtown park yesterday.

Decided to take it easy today. Early this afternoon we walked over to the Egan Center for the Alaska Kennel Club show. I wanted to see the standard poodles. Greg wanted to see the Siberian Huskies. There were lots of gorgeous dogs in the show. There were 4 rings of dogs showing at most times. He claims we will need a guard dog if we move out into the bush. I will definitely need a large dog to make me feel safer while walking on unpopulated trails and such. We stopped in a couple of souvenir shops when we left the show. Since they were getting ready to close, we came on home. Enjoyed a James Bond movie marathon on TV and rested at home.

  2. You need the Bernise Moutain dog in the last photo. They are really good dogs and love the snow and don't bark too much. Of course, Phyllis will have the standard poodle, in black, with the puffy balls on it, with a patent leather pink collar and matching leash.
