Merry Christmas & A Wonderful New Year!
Another year has come and gone.
Seems like it was just yesterday that the new year was beginning, and now it is over....
We have had a WONDERFUL year,
4 out of 5 of my kids have graduated from one school or another and have started off on new adventures or a new school
Jim and I both still have our jobs and our health in these turbulent times
The dogs have done very well,
Libby, Siren and Paris finished their AKC Championships
Paris (CH Temoras The Simple Life) won the Breed at the Prestigious Montgomery Show in October
She also finished the year #17 Breed and #19 All-Breed.
Considering she was shown but a few times, I have no complaints on her standings for the year
I have made many new friends and have strengthend my old friendships here and abroad.
Thank You to all that have made 2008 a Wonderful Year
To all that check my site for updates, may you all have a Wonderful Holiday and I hope for all that have a Puppy/adult from
Temora Kennels that you enjoy many many years of happiness with your new addition!

Although this is not 'Dog Related', it is still worth putting on the 'News' page
Danielle entered her Brother Bryan in the 'Walk In Nick's Shoes' JDRF walk-a-thon in Los Angeles CA, and Bryan WON!
He and Danielle (winner got to take one guest) went to Los Angeles for the trip to participate in the Walk-A-Thon and to meet Nick Jonas
of the Famed Jonas Brothers Trio!
Of course, Danielle, being a Nick Jonas fan, this was a Dream come True!
From what the kids have told me, Nick Jonas is a very nice young man and they had a GREAT time!
In the photo below, Danielle is directly to the right of Nick Jonas and Bryan is behind her in the Badger Baseball Cap.

In 2004-2005 prior to my transplant, I had numerous hypoglycemic seizures.
Most times, my family or friends were there to save my life.
But on several occasions, Bull (CH Temora Bully For You) saved me.
In one instance, after a seizure and where I had passed out in my office and my head hit the table I kept files on (and susequently removed the corner of that table), Bull stayed with me while I was unconscious and pestered me until I woke up.
After stumbling upstairs where I attempted to lay down again, he kept after me until I got up and drank some juice.
He kept after me even after that until he must have sensed that my blood sugar had come up, only then did he finally stop trying to get me up and moving.
It was not until later, when I fully came out of the after effects of the seizure, that I realized that the stain on the carpet was not koolaid as my husband had thought, but blood from where my head hit the table.
We did not realize what Bull had done until all this had sunk in.
Bull in staying with me and waking me up, saved my life.
Bull had done this before, but not to the magnitude he did this time.
Every year the American Kennel Club (AKC) accepts nominations for the Award for Canine Excellence (ACE) award.
Bull was submitted this year for this prestigious award.
As of today, he is an official nominee for the 2008 ACE award.

We had to let our Golden Retriever go today.
Ceasar gave us 13 years of fun and love.
He was a great Hunting dog for my husband, and a wonderful companion to the rest of us.
Of course he was my husbands dog, and he lit up when Jim walked into a room
His love for hunting was legendary, and he retrieved many pheasants and grouse and on occasion, a duck or two.
We will miss you forever ole man, you will have many friends waiting for you over the Rainbow Bridge including Ike and Abe,
You are all loved, now and forever.........
