"It should be more of a celebration of the earth," she said. Her thoughts run to a community type gathering with music, good food and vendors promoting a variety of save-the-earth-themed homegrown produce and homemade everything from cotton diapers from the Rosebud Diaper Boutique with its "Go Cloth, Go Green" slogan, to Space Lotus Studio's T-shirts and tapestries that have been "tied and dyed with love," cotton puppets and Journalistic Tendencies' notepads made from recycled paper.

But the 45 or so Icelandic sheepdogs gathered Saturday on Elisabet Stacy-Hurley's Beaver Creek property represented the largest gathering of the breed in U.S. history, organizers said. The gathering was part of a series of events scheduled throughout the country to mark the Icelandic Sheepdog Association of America's 10-year anniversary. The United States has only 600 to 700 Icelandic sheepdogs, said ISAA President Knox Rhine, who traveled from his home in Newton, Kan., for the event.
