February - May 2009 - It's hard to believe we're halfway through this year. Thank you tor those who called to check on us since it's been that long since the last time we added pictures and an update.  Ben's been kept busy lambing and working dogs. He's organized informational meetings this spring for landowners in this part of Oklahoma and Kansas so they would be informed as the power company puts in a high power transmission line through all of us. Ben is still limiting it to 4 outside dogs at a time. That's his idea of retirement. So get your name on the list ahead of time.  Big news for the first of the year was the birth of the first great grandchild, Avery Kelly, in February.  Leslie had a real perk when friend, Maria Lawson flew down from Calgary, Alberta to work with her for almost 2 weeks in April. Maria is the past executive director of the Canadian Chiropractic Examining Board. They got to have a little "girl time" too. Those of you who have brought dogs, thank you very much for continued support.  Folks, those who bring dogs for training, telephone to ask questions or just visit, those who visit our web site, or those who just keep good thoughts for us - all of you are appreciated. Have a blessed day, Ben and Leslie

Ben rallied the landowners (Oklahoma and Kansas) scheduling an informational meeting at the Welch Civic Center this April to give landowners necessary information about high power transmission line property acquisitions and the landowner rights.  There were well over 100 persons in attendance.  He followed up with another well-attended meeting with attorneys and land acquisition appraiser in May.


We said goodbye to Miss Perch, left, February 1993 - April 2009. This one was hard as she wasn't "sick", but had a bout with a tick-borne bacterial infection which caused weakness in the rear-end.
