    Hi Bob my Mom and I are drooling at your new pup. We were between getting newfoundlands and english bulldogs. We ended up with our newfies but our next favorite breed is bull dogs. Priscilla is insanely cute Now I just have to get my big brat to behave in the show ring

    Thnx for the kind comments....here is the follow up pix...The mural is about 1/4 done. Val has spent 50 hours so far and anticipated approximately 200 hours total for the final result. The "gift" showa is now just over 19" and loves to eat. The fasting period will be good for her, as she is the fullest of the koi in the pond conformation wise....She reminds me of a maltese we used to have, as she is ravenous. and pushy...LOL

    The protective "fence" is patterned after what we saw in Japan and at dealers here in the US. For a long time, we didn't have it on there, but one koi jumped out from the last group in without it on there. Luckily, the fish was saved, and the fence was up the next day. The reason for the delay was I was trying to figure out a better way to secure it. In the end, went with the way I had done it b4, which was to drill a hole in the tile and gunite, use a 1/2" electrical conduit length of about 10" as a "connector" in the hole, 3/4" PVC frame for landscape fabric and black zip ties to secure the fabric to the frame. Built in sections, it is easily removeable to the tile level and leaves not much evidence it was there during showing time.

    More dog pictures... 1st one.. Bramely showing the brat 'the way". Then them looking for the koi as they swam away. Still not sure she ever saw the koi, she is not quite tall enough yet But soon.

    I can't believe the growth on the gift Showa...good grief! Still looks really good, though. I guess we picked a decent koi? You know you're going to hurt that cute little girl's feelings calling her the "brat" that way. Good thing she's got my buddy Bramely to show her the ropes.

    We have an Airing Date for HGTV

    Well, good things eventually sometimes come to those who wait There's a definate maybe

    The production folks from HGTV have let us know the air date for the pond construction build of our pond. For those interested, it is planned to be on Saturday August 9, at 6:30 am on New Spaces. That is the name of the "program" on HGTV. We haven't seen our program yet, they like to keep the subjects in suspense too, but they say we will like it. 70 plus hours of taping for 22 min of show. It should be repeated after that too, but not sure of the dates and times for that. Set your TIVO Like the song says "Write this Down"
    Best regards,

    Bob Winkler

    My opinions are my best interpretation of my experiences. They are not set in stone as I intend to always be a student of life. And Koi.

    OLD... You are just a young pup. The short term memory loss is a personal choice.

    Looking forward to seeing the special Bob. Of course seeing it in person was real cool. It will be interesting to see how they put the show together.
