It is hard to believe that it is Almost August. It will be a very busy month here in Alaska, for us it is the start of the changing seasons. Our seasons are so short, at least all of them except Winter which lasts a LONG time. August is Fair time, time to finish the outside projects and best of all Allison will be visiting!

Allison’s visit means we will hopefully be that much closer to full implementation. I am working feverishly to get the system gone over to make sure everything is in place. We hope to put all the departments on and be ready to do billing by the end of September. I have to stay positive about it because it is a lot to accomplish with little assistance from others in house.

I am really looking forward to the new release this weekend, just hope that staff don’t panic since I will be out of town at a dog show.

August also means the end of our Dog show season, This coming weekend is our final summer show. I have accomplished so much in the show ring this year despite my injury to my knee. My Girl Emma has earned her Championship and her Rally Advanced title, her daughter Cassi has earned a 4 point major toward her championship, and I have had fun and learned so much more about showing and grooming. It is a never ending learning process, as is everything in life.
