Welcome to the First Day of the Rest of Your Life!

Boudreaux's eyes are open!!

Last night I went over to Bonnie's for a quick visit of the puppies and to see Luke, an adult dog who has been feeling under the weather. Before I left, I picked each puppy up for a snuggle and lo and behold, I saw that Boudreaux's eyes were open!! He was blinking very sleepily at me and it was terribly cute. As of today (Thursday) Bonnie says that nobody else has opened their eyes. Jim has taken to calling Boudreaux "Jumbo", which, I suppose is a very appropriate name.

In other news, Bonnie and I have made plans to attend the Yukon Quest start next week in Fairbanks. I am SO excited! We have a room booked and we have tickets to the Start Banquet. I expect that we'll have a blast. In the meantime I should receive my new camera that I ordered this morning, so the blog will probably have lots of pictures from the weekend next weekend. Our hotel has wi-fi, so I'll try to update nightly. What fun!!

Plans are to take the dogs out tonight for a quick and fun 2 mile run. They were very nonplussed the last time I ran them, so I'm going to make sure that they have a really good time tonight. I'll let you know how it goes. Until then, enjoy the rest of the pictures below.

Boudreaux has a post-weigh-in nap.
