Wow, it's been a while!

I just noticed how long it's been since you've heard from Kaos Siberians.

There have been a LOT of changes here.  Ryder, Frosty, Satinka, and Robin are still here.  Ice is off doing whatever he's decided to do over the Rainbow Bridge; letting him go was rough but it was time.

We added a new furry family member, Smokey.
Smokey is a Great Pyrenees that we met at Animal Friends of the Valley and fell in love with.  With minimal research into the breed, we brought him home.  The first few weeks I wondered if I'd made a horrible mistake.  But over the last few months, he's become part of the pack.  Smokey and I are taking some basic obedience classes at PetSmart and we're looking forward to moving forward with CGC and therapy dog certifications as well as doing some training to start competing in Rally Obedience.  He's a smart boy and much more eager to please than a Siberian!  

We haven't been in the show ring, except when Maskarade Siberians has dragged us out to help her when she's in Southern California, but we're considering a return there too with a new puppy later this year or next year.

Right now I'm just going to school, staring a new job and spending time with my crew who are, with the exception of Smokey, all senior dogs now and all kinda calm and mellow.  Every day with them is a gift and I'm not going to miss a minute of it.
