Hello, yeah, it's been a while. Not much, how 'bout you?

Hello there! Yes, we are still out here! I just haven't felt like blogging and the longer I let it go, the less I feel like doing it! I do stay active over on FaceBook. Looking at my blog roll widget, it seems we've lost several bloggers over the past year or so. I guess I am not the only one who is letting it slide.

But, at any rate, here's an update.......

Wilson.....he is still going strong! His kidney failure is of course still an issue but with medicines and fluids, he seems to be holding his own! I know that can change at any time, so I make sure to enjoy each day with him! They are all gifts!

We actually took him for a short ride on our jetski (on a very rare sunny day! It's been a very wet summer here!) to an island in the Potomac. He did great for an old boy!

Wilson's mini-me isn't so mini anymore, but he is definitely Wilson's constant shadow!

Jimmy.....We've still been going to a few agility trials this summer, but with limited success. I think age is catching up with Jim just a bit, and keeping the bars up is not so easy anymore. We are taking a break until October and will do a few of our favorite fall trials. This is very likely our last season before he retires so each trial is a tad bittersweet knowing it is the last time.

Little by little, Jimmy has learned to tolerate and maybe even like Cedar.  They are free together in the house, and sometimes play chase games outside. I have even caught them in close proximity!

Cedar....Well of course, he's been going to training classes ever since I brought him home. At the tender age of just 7 months (back in June), he passed his Canine Good Citizen test! What a good boy!
He is a smart little guy and loves to work. We are making great progress on his beginner agility training. He is going to be FAST!

He has learned the joys of water and will even swim now. He isn't as crazy about it as Jimmy and Wilson, but loves to cool off!

So, all in all, things are good here in the House of Cardigans!  Not much happens that isn't dog related, oh, and LOTS of vacuuming! LOL! I can't promise I'll get back on track with my blogging but at least you know we are still here.....

I'll leave you with all three of my wonderful boys!


  1. Good to hear from you. Glad the boys are still going strong...especially Wilson.

  2. OMD, Cedar is all grown!!!! I am so glads all the boyz are well, and you guys are okays! Thanks for the update and checking in ~ Ma is bad at the Faceybook, cause she spends way too much time over there, and there are some rude peeps she just can't tolerate sometimes.

  4. We all feel the blogging blues now and then. I went through a full year and a half where it took all I had to do one of my 'smile' posts. PLUS, you have a new puppy and they take up time.

    Speaking of, I didn't realize just how much Cedar looked like Wilson. When I just looked at this pictures, it really struck me, despite seeing your photos on Facebook, I missed it.

    They just grow up too fast!

  5. Especially love the photo with Jimmy's and Cedar's tails crossed!

  6. "Unkown" is Chris Taylor. 😁

  7. Glad to hear how you are all doing :) Sounds like you have been keeping busy and having lots of fun. Milo,Jet & Arli

  8. I'm so happy that Wilson is still doing so well. It seems as if he's played an extremely important role in raising Cedar. That will be fun for you to remember over Cedar's lifetime.

    Have fun, and we'd love to have you back blogging whenever the urge hits.
