There's a lotta hoopla on facebook lately: "25 things about me".
I had no interest, but it did start me thinking about Wyanne. I wish I'd done this for all four dogs:
Here are 25 things about her all should know:

For those of you unfamiliar with the CCI turn in process, about a month before the date, puppy raisers are asked to submit their favorite photos of their pup. Only about two for each pup are chosen, but when you see all the puppy pics of matriculating pups, usually around 30, you can't help but laugh and cry and everything in between. Here are the ones I sent.
There are a few very significant people in Wyanne's journey missing in photos, namely Rod, Jane, Sophie, Charlotte and Cath, but I wanted to include some photos of people and places where she's touched hearts.
