“De todos los animales de la creación el hombre es el único que bebe sin tener sed, come sin tener hambre y habla sin tener nada que decir” ~ John Steinbeck

(Translation: Of all the animals created, Man is the only one that drinks without thirst, eats without hunger, and talks with nothing to say)

The Westminster 136th Show was on TV for the past two nights. Last night, the winner was selected, for those of you who missed it, these were the final seven contenders:

Dalmation Ian at WestminsterDalmatian- A breed that has never won the Westminster

German Shepherd WestminsterGerman Shepard

wirehaired Dachshund


Irish Setter


Kerry Blue Terrier

I bet you may have guesses as to which dog took the Ribbon, however, I was extremely disappointed by the choice:

The furball took the gold. Very disappointing, I was very much rooting for the Dalmatian.


My biological clock has henceforth decided that 6:30am is the time to wake up. I have been unable to accept this yet. So this morning I stayed in bed an extra 45 mins hoping I could sleep more. But I guess my body knows best, and I perhaps was fully rested. After getting out of bed, feeding and watering the animals, I decided, to feed myself. Breakfast was the simple yet favorite of toast. I realize even though I have switched to whole wheat or multi-grain products, I am suppose to be cutting carbs from my diet. Then again, with the ways things have been, I am curious if I will actually get to compete. I still am planning on it, although I am unsure of the actual date. I guess I will continue to train as though I’m going to need to be ready by May 5th, and see where it gets me.

I booked a ticket to go to NEW YORK to visit the Sister in March. Should be fun. I have to keep today’s entry short and sweet. This week is def. bogging me down with work.

Have a Happy Tuesday!
