Catera is happy as she can be, sharing her personal space with such a high energy hooligan. She turns 14 on Wednesday, and is a little tubby these days, but still wants to go for a walk when Henry goes with Guy. Funny, but I see some of her in Sybil now that I've got a few pix of her here. Catera is our first Hall of Fame dam, put there by her kids by Hall of Fame sire Chaps, of which Ho Dog (aka the ol' man) is one of. Her last remaining sibling is also living in Poway, just around the corner from Catera, and that is Sherman the red tri dog from the wonderful Hall of Fame sire Jack and Jazzee litter.
It's great to see the two redheads (oh yeah, and Kris and Guy too!), and it's also great that Dale made it back from the wilds of Southern California safe and sound and just in time to see our Ducks go down at the hands of USC (oh the SHAME of it!). He's happy to be home as well, and the dogs were all ecstatic to see him.
Enjoy the slideshow!
I recognize this sit. Great-great-great grandma Morgan used to do this lovely sit in obedience trials to show her contempt for what she was being asked to do. Seems to run in the family bloodlines, eh?

I absolutely LOVE the look on Catera's face! 'I'm a good girl. I get it. I know how to pose. Just shove him out of the way and take pictures of me instead.'
