We're doing GREAT ;-) and we met a CAMEL !!

Hey there!
I know…. It’s been a long time since my last update. SORRY!
The Big Guy is doing great. He was able to take a couple weeks off from work while we rehearsed for “Aida” It was a much needed rest. He loved every minute with the exception of the Vet’s check up. (which he passed with flying colors)
Grace “Annie” has gone back to Chicago, IL for school so we now have new “Annies” we rehearsed with Anna Carothers who is the understudy for Annie and did one show with her while we waited to meet our new Annie Ellie Smith.
We offered an opportunity to travel with both girls to many of our local schools promoting the Arts. Bogger was a perfect ambassador for the Arts & for his breed. Both girls love him and are learning the art of becoming an Airedale handler. (just a little challenging when he weighs as much as they do) Fortunately he has really relaxed on the stage and goes through the show like an “Old Pro”.
We will be rehearsing with Ellie Smith today and performing the show this evening. Boggers work load is much lighter through the fall as we added a show. Only 10 Annie shows left before we close for the season. If you have been putting off seeing the show wait no longer or you may miss out….
I wish I could do more on stage photos or a video but we are an Equity stage so not allowed.
We received the Camel for “Aida” just over a month ago. I really thought Bogger would have some kind of “Wowed” reaction to the new guy but an inquisitive sniff was as far as it went. I will try to get a photo of the two together. (I think they look a lot alike…LOL)
I have included some photos hope you enjoy them. Photos include: School visit with Anna ~ Hanging out on Orphan beds on stage pre-show ~ With Ellie in the dressing room ~ Chilling on Warbucks Mansion set peice ~ Final dress with Grace at begining of season.
Hope all is well on your end!
Kimberlee & Bogart
