Fiona rocked at Rose City this year. She did awesome and won Winner Bitch several days along with winning Best of Opposite over specials on one day. She walked away from the show 8 points with 1 major. I am so proud of my little blue girl and still am shocked about what happened.
Karis had PUPPIES!!!! 6 beautiful pups were born on April 17th. 3 boys, 3 girls. 2 black and white boys, 1 blue boy and 3 blue girls. All are very flashy and pretty. Thanks to working with Kim Shira all puppies have homes. It has been super exciting to watch them grow and time is going to fly I know it. There is a feed to the puppy cam on the above puppy tab. Here are some pictures of the bunch. They are all named after food mascots. See below for explanations.
Wow so much has been going on around the house and I haven’t posted a thing about any of it. Hopefully I remember everything.
Liam- has been doing great. Showed his last show in the big Richland cluster. He is going to be neutered later this month so he can move onto other fun adventures in life. He has been collected so there could be more Liam babies in the future.
Polly- has been coming more out her shell everyday. She now asks for lovings and is a true hoot to be around. She is currently up with her breeder- Mark and Kim of Samhain Cardigans to be bred for the last time. The sire has yet to be named but all the plans will be coming out in due time. Once she has the pups she will be spayed and then become my forever couch potato. That is her goal in life and I will do my best to have her be awesome at it.
Karis- little baby girl has had a lot go on in the last couple months. First she singled out in a couple shows and then was major shopping. She got her first major at the regional speciality in Richland. It was a 5pt major and was handled by Jason!!! Then she went on the road with Beep Lee down to Arizona where on the first day of the 4 day cluster took another 5 pt major. Pending AKC approval she will be a champion!! She went to be BOS and we’ll see what she does today (the last day of the show). She will then be on her way back to Vancouver and gets to start her real calling in life- performance events. Hopefully my schedule will allow for me to train her in agility. She is going to have a BLAST.
Emmett- currently lives with my brother-in-law, Josh, about 2 miles from the house. Since Josh is currently going to school 2 nights a week Jason and I help take care of him. He is such an awesome little dog. I miss him but know that he is loving being an only dog. He has finally made truce with the cat and they are good buddies. Emmett got invited to be on a local fly ball team and we’ll see how that adventure pans out for him.
Fiona- is a crazy little blue puppy. She has an endless amount of energy and doesn’t seem to know what sleeping in is. Hopefully that will come with time. Fiona’s first show was in Wenatchee, WA under breeder judge Chuck Murray. She took RWB as a 6 month old puppy. She then went onto winning her breed by group every day at Richland. She is a gorgeous puppy, the brain just isn’t there yet She just needs time to grow up and we have no problem giving that to her.
Ana- is our rent a bitch from Kim and Mark while Polly is gone. Polly runs our house and we didn’t want Karis or Fiona thinking they could move up in the pack so we brought Ana back to the house. She is just a good dog. Very loving an always wants to be with her human. She is doing a great job keeping Liam and Fiona in line, it will be interesting when Karis returns home.
Puppies- all of the families are delighted with the pups and haven’t heard anything bad. The pups are entering their testing of limits stage so I imagine the correspondence may increase in the next couple week but I welcome any questions or concerns. Here are some recent (and not so recent pictures). Enjoy.
So need to do some updating:
Photos are a little overexposed and puppies weren’t really cooperative but we got something
Mr. York (available to a companion or show home)
Mr. Musketeer (available to a companion home)
Ms. Skittles (available to a companion or show home)
So we have learned the hard way how hard it is to take pictures of 5 weeks old puppies. Our camera is just not fast enough. But here is what we managed.
And then some really cute ones I couldn’t leave out…
