Minor announcement, and one more interesting...

I was bemused to see I was just declared to be in the top ten percent of people searched for at LinkedIn. This is only remarkable because (1) there are twenty MILLION people in that network; (2) I have never done much with it-- I mean, I TWEET more; and (3) as my father used to say "if you're so famous how come you ain't rich?"

Here is their message you are supposed to put in FaceBook and such; I have to put it here, with unclothed code:

"Hurray! I have one of the top 10% most viewed @LinkedIn profiles for 2012. http://www.linkedin.com/pub/profile/17/a39/a3a"

More of interest I suspect: Ataika's daughter Riss (LaRISSa), up by Santa Fe with Shiri Hoshen, is in heat and Shiri hopes to breed her to Tavi. That 3/4 Almaty 1/4 St Petersbug cross (Lash born here, Tavi at Vladimir Beregovoy's in Virginia), is about my favorite possible in the US-- we chose pick of this litter as possibly our last tazi ; remember we are 63 and 66 and that Taika's mother and grandmother hit 20, and Taika isn't even mellow at 9! Will talk to any serious people. Remember they are primitives and you cannot browbeat them; they are smarter than most humans...

Gosh the age thing! I mean mainly the dogs'. Just wandred all the way back through the Tazi tags. Amazing. Exciting the new pup. - Bill

I can't get enough of pictures of these dogs.

(I really can't see myself ever keeping one. They would definitely outsmart me.)

Very exciting news, about the Linkedn thing (I dont quite get that whole thing yet) and the possible upcoming puppies. Don't tempt me! I'm getting a little rescue Saturday--I found I missed my little dog Jack more than I thought I would. Friend of mine who is a vet up in Oakland had a little 6 lb stray found starving and running on Fremont brought in--she vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and housebroke him for me. A sucker is born every minute! Mary Ann

Thanks Steve, Bill, CyborgSuzy and Unknown! I love them dearly. They are super nice dogs and a pleasure to live with. Other than a few minor quirks, they are pretty good house dogs.

They are spirited, but not hellions. :)
