2005 Mid Fall Assessment
Oct. 23rd  2005



Well, here we are several hours before yet another hurricane affects parts of Florida and in particular the area that I live in, South Florida! As I take a break from the hurricane preparations, I decide to relieve some stress and sit at the computer and assess where we are in this pre-hurricane day. Hurricane Wilma is 24 hours away from the Miami area and we should shortly begin to feel some of the squalls that proceed the brunt of the hurricane.  So before the power goes out and my mind is totally occupied with pressing by the moment matters, I will compose this update.

In order to compare where each dog is from the Spring Update, I have left those Update notes for each dog in this color, new titles and the current status of each dog will appear in this color.


November 14th Update to the pre-hurricane update: Well, we survived Hurricane Wilma, of course more tattered than after Hurricane Katrina 2 months ago, but alive and kicking. I've decided to add some developments since the October 23rd assessments, so I will do those in this color

Here is a dog by dog assessment of the 2005 Show Season debut.
