BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Update on Gumbie

You may recall the story of Gumbie, Warren Palfrey's sleddog I met at this year's Iditarod. According to Kate, Warren's wife, Gumbie doesn't have the heart of a sleddog and would rather be a couch potato.

I don't know the details, but somehow Gumbie was transported from the Palfrey's kennel in Yellowknife, NWT to Cindy Gallea's kennel in Seely Lake, Montana, where he was boarded until 2 weeks ago when his new owner, Doug, drove from Oklahoma to pick him up. (Whew, what a long sentence!)

Gumbie and Doug are spending several weeks bonding, at 11,000 feet, in Doug's cabin in CO. I had a call from Doug today reporting that Gumbie is eating well, gaining weight and loving cabin life. Doug has 2 other dogs at home so, hopefully, this time together will help make the transition easier once they arrive in OK, later this summer.

I'll keep you posted on this wonderful story with a happy ending.
