Picking up our new puppy tomorrow

Windsor Shelties welcomes a new addition to our sheltie family.

Akadia Something To Talk About "Gabby"

We are so excited that we get to head to Rigby, Idaho tomorrow to Shannalee of Akadia Shelties and pick up our new puppy. Her registered name will be Akadia Something To Talk About call name is Gabby. We have waited for almost 2 years to find this special girl, and we want to thank Shannalee for being so patient with us, and finding us the right girl.

These beautiful photos of Gabby were taken by Shannalee last night. Gabby is out of Ch. Starfalls The Enchanter, CD, CGC "Brock" (Tricia Harris of Lacewood Sheltland Sheepdogs in Provo, Utah is the owner of Brock) ex Akadia HellsBells "Bell"

We are already the proud owner of a Bell son Akadia Wildfire, RA "Cody" so Gabby is a welcome addition to our sheltie family. Gabby will be enrolled with me in a handling class taught be a professional handler that only lives 10-15 minutes from me, so I'm excited to learn along with Gabby on how to handle her in the confirmation ring, I have dabbled a little on the confirmation side but have mainly been in the Obedience and Rally rings.

This picture was taken of us on our balcony, the person that took the photo lives on the inlet to Port Everglades his name is Wiley and he runs which is a site to watch the cruise ships sail. The person on the left of the picture is my sister Marion from England, then it's me with Ron standing behind me, the blonde haired lady is Mayo from Florida we got to know her and her husband prior to going on the cruise. The gentleman to her right is my brother-in-law John from England and to his right is Conrad who is married to Mayo.
This picture was taken as we sailed out of Fort Lauderdale, Wiley zoomed right in on our cabin. On the Sunday prior to our cruise we got a chance to visit with Wiley in his beautiful home on the inlet, I took some amazing photos from his backyard.
Look for more photos to come from our awesome cruise aboard the Emerald Princess, including a picture of our wedding vow renewal. Plus photo of our new puppy.

We Are Back!

We arrived home last night at 10:00 pm MST after spending 2 weeks on vacation 3 nights pre-cruise in Fort Lauderdale followed by a 10 night Southern Caribbean cruise, we had an awesome time weather was in the 80's. We renewed our wedding vows onboard ship and my darling hubby surprised me with a new diamond ring which is just beautiful has 7 diamonds set in white gold. He and my sister went and picked it out onboard ship the day of our renewel and they both told me they had to use the bathroom both left within 10 minutes of each other and I fell for it.

Now I have to do laundry and unpack, but next weekend we are heading to Shannalee at Akadia Shelties in Rigby, Idaho to pick up our new puppy her name is Gabby registered name is Akadia Something To Talk About and we are very excited to get her. Shannalee has a picture of her on her website under the sections litters she is under the Bell/Brock litter.

Hopefully I will have new pictures soon and will post.
