Well winter has hit Alaska. it was -12 this morning. It has been a very busy couple of months and I have not written in a while. Here at FRA we are almost up and running with the TMS system. It has been a long haul and I have learned a lot along the way. I was lucky enough to spend a week at home when my dog Emma delivered her puppies and spend the time entering old certifications into the TMS. Now we are in the first stages of doing sign ups through the system and then certifications. I can see so many advantages and don’t know how we did things before Therap.

I spoke with another agency here in Fairbanks that used Therap for about 2 weeks and quit that now has a new executive director that wants to get it up and running again. I think that my enthusiasm rubbed off on the two women that I talked to and they are now ready to get going.

With all of this going on I have successfully raised a litter of 6 puppies to 9 weeks. I am keeping 2 of them a boy and a girl that I will raise and show. puppies
