— The Ava Invasion —

August 21, 2006 – Cindy Niske (pictured above) dropped by this weekend with seven-month-old Ava in tow. Although she told us Ava's visit was to provide some puppy socialization, I think Cindy secretly hopes we'll want to adopt Ava, who's still looking for the perfect pet home. As Cindy said, "To know her is to love her."

Well, I can't argue with that. Ava displayed perfect puppy manners and she also cracked us up when she discovered the biggest water bowl she'd ever seen in her life — our 8 acre pond. It wasn't long before she was running, jumping and splashing. Our six swans didn't take kindly to the "Ava Invasion." Although they kept their distance, they made their displeasure known by hissing and yodeling. Ava was oblivious. She spent the entire afternoon running in circles, rolling in the grass, prancing around in the water and planting kisses on Cindy. (Ava is very generous with her kisses — my husband and I got our fair share of them, too.)

For those of you who are interested in this sort of thing, Ava is a full sister to Mick ( last year's Futurity winner) from a repeat breeding. Here are some out-takes from the afternoon:

My husband and I talked it over and due to our busy travel schedule we've decided the timing isn't right for another Dane. Matters are further complicated by the fact that my art studio is undergoing a major renovation. The seemingly endless construction has turned our house upside down. None-the-less, I have to admit to being tempted by Ava. I hope she'll visit us again soon. (Woof!)
