News Item Number One: 8 month old babe took her first points this past weekend under breeder-judge Rudy Munoz. A 4 point major the weekend of the Arizona Specialty. I'm just about bursting with pride! Keep up with Babe's (and the other WhiteStar's) are up to at her blog, The Babe Blog.
News Item Number Two; Babe is about to become a cousin! Aliy's sister, Raven, is pregnant. Follow all the action once again on Raven's new blog, That's So Raven!

10 Weeks Old
Aliy's Angels are 10 weeks old today. The three that are not staying here at WhiteStar are in their new homes. Mia is in California, Bonnie and Domino are still here in Colorado.
It's time to turn off the Aliy-Cam and say goodbye to Aliy's World. I will ocasionally update this blog with any big news that occurs in the lives of the puppies, but for more day to day information about Babe and her sisters, as well as all of the other WhteStar sammies, pay a visit to Babe's new blog....
It's been fun. Thanks for watching!
Mia Goes Home!!!
It was a whirlwind week for little Mia. First we realize the home she was to go to might not be the place for her to go. Then another home in California is found but to get there she must FLY. Some people ship dogs by air all the time. I've never done it. I don't fly and I don't want my dogs flying but this home was so perfect we had to get Mia out there. Meanwhile, Kelly, Ilsa and I had plans for an out of town dog show!
A huge THANK YOU goes out to Mia's New Mom Aimee who made all the flight arrangements and got us all organized on this end!
So how is Mia doing as a California Girl? See for yourself....
Mia has a beautiful deck to play on.
And a Big Brother named Max.
Best of all she has her own little girl named Rachel! (Also a little boy named Josh!)

What Puppies Do on a Summer Afternoon
It was a warm windy day today on the plains. What did Babe and Mia do? Not much.
And worked at looking cute!
Which is not hard to do...
... when you are a 9 week old Sammie puppy!
The Fate of Aliy's World?
I'm not sure what to do with Aliy's World and the Aliy-Cam.
Both have served their purpose. I'm not going to delete Aliy's World, it has so much good information that even if no one else ever cares to look at again, *I* want to be able to refer to it.
Last night I accidentally deleted my WhiteStar blog. I lost everything I had posted fromthe last 4 months. For the first few minutes after I realized what I had done, I had moments of sheer panic where I thought I had deleted THIS blog. At that point I realized how much the words I've written and the pictures I've posted over the last 4 months meant to me. So Aliy's World is here to stay. I have a permanent link to it on the WhiteStar Travels page. But will I update it for much longer? And what about the Aliy-Cam?
Should I create a blog for Babe chronicling her life as she grows up? Does anyone care??? Originally I had thought the WhiteStar blog would contain more dog information but it's pretty much ended up just being about my crafty stuff. Maybe I should do separate sammie blog....
And should I turn the Aliy Cam into the Babe-Cam??? Or just turn it off until the next litter of puppies?
The Homeless Waif
It appears that my little Purple Girl is without a home.
As recently as two weeks ago the people who were supposed to get her indicated they wanted her. They had been waiting since before Aliy was even bred so there was no reason for me to doubt the seriousness of their desire for a puppy. They came and saw the puppies when they were three weeks old and tried to give me a deposit on one. They even named her!!
But, now that the puppies are ready to go home, they have not responded to the emails I sent, not commented or returned the puppy contract I sent, nor have they returned my phone call (as they promised to do when I apparently called at an inconvenient time earlier this week), so the only assumption I can make is that they no longer want the puppy.
Poor little Purple :( :(

What About Mia???
Mia (the puppy formerly known as Purple) will also be staying here at WhiteStar.... but only for a couple more weeks until the details for her new home are finalized!
In the meantime she can keep Babe occupied.
Mia at 9 weeks.
Yes. I know I'm cute.
When do I get to go home????
For now I'm calling her Mia after soccer star Mia Hamm. Will this end up being her forever name???? Time will tell!

"The Babe is here. Who's coming in second?"
Babe Didrikson Zaharias
Babe (the puppy formerly known as Red) is staying right here.
She is named after the great Babe Didrikson Zaharias, possibly the greatest female athlete to have ever lived. If you don't know who Babe is, or you think she was "just a golfer" check this out.
In addition to golf, Babe played softball, baseball, basketball and was a multiple Olympic gold medalist in track. And then there were all the things she did "just for fun"!
Babe's registered name? What else but WhiteStar's Ready For Anything!
Where have my sisters gone???
My bone. MY Bone.
Bonnie Goes Home
And now there are two.
Bonnie (the puppy formerly known as Yellow) left about 15 minutes ago.
Yes, I cried again.
Bonnie has gone off to live with New Dad Mike where she has bunches of adventures to look forward to. I know she will be loved and cared for, but it's still so hard to let them go.
Aliy poses for one last picture with her daughter.
New Dad Mike and Bonnie.
Bonnie heads home...
Bonnie is named after 5 time Olympic gold medal speed skater Bonnie Blair. Her registered name will probably be WhiteStar's Girl of Gold.... Mike and I spent a bit of time trying to come up with names.....hmmm Mike are you reading this?? What do you think of WhiteStar's White Hot and Gold?????
Domino Goes Home
Domino (the puppy formerly known as Black) left for her new home just a short half hour ago.
Yes, I cried.
But I know that Domino is in a wonderful home that she will share with New Dad Carl, New Mom Dottie and her new big brother and sister, Skye and Nikki.
Aliy poses with Domino and her new family.
Domino and New Dad Carl are hitting it off already.
Domino waves goodbye.
Domino is named after Olympic gymnasts Dominique Dawes and Dominique Moceanu. Her registered name will probably be WhiteStar's Swingn' on the Bars.
