“The more we get together…”

| September 5, 2018

  It’s a silly little song I remember from my childhood. – The more we get together, together, together–the more we get together, the happier we’ll be. There are some important truths behind those cliched words. Connecting with other people kindles a spark that adds zest to our lives. A single human being can accomplish [...]

Decisions, decisions… updated.

I always think it’s a good sign when puppies get prettier between the ages of 8 and 10 weeks. Over the years, it seems like the puppies that get better during that time, usually turn out well.  These puppies have done that. I think they are all improving, and they are all pretty. Of course [...]

The Dog Days Of Summer! New pix added

| July 22, 2018

    Officially, the Dog Days of Summer are the days between July 3rd, and August 11th – when Sirius, the Dog Star, is closest to our sun. These are supposedly the days of lethargy and madness brought on by the hottest days of summer. Statistics show that violent crime rates increase with hot temperatures. [...]

Hanging in there

| July 10, 2018

  I’ve been really sick since  July 5, 2018- so my blog and email responses have been delayed.  I’m sorry for not keeping things current, but this gastrointestinal flu (?) is the worst illness I can personally ever remember dealing with. My husband, Mike, still has many health issues, so it is up to me [...]

Replay in the works – new pix added

| June 23, 2018

Our four week old Poppy/Samson puppies are eating, growing, playing, and doing great. The puppies are still nursing, and now they are also learning to eat sloppy food from a pan. At first some of them were not so sure about the pan lapping, but they have all begun to see it’s a good way [...]

  Poppy’s new puppies sired by Samson are three weeks old today and their personalities are starting to show.  Poppy (Ch Tairis A League Of Her Own) was named after the movie – A League of Their Own about women who played professional baseball during the war. I am continuing that theme with her second [...]

A season for puppies!

| May 28, 2018

  It has been an unusually bountiful time for having puppies at our house recently! Wow! We whelped the litters co-bred with our friend Cheryl Kobularcik, from Pearl and Carina. And now we have new babies from the repeat breeding of Poppy to Samson. I have never had so many puppies near the same time [...]

Feeling pretty GRAND!

| May 17, 2018

Patton, our 17 month old son of Ch Tairis A League of Her Own and GCHB Scalloway’s Lion Hunter, got the last point he needed to complete his grand championship last weekend. I don’t normally campaign dogs after they finish their championships, but Patton picked up 20 Grand points the first weekend he was shown [...]

Puppies united!

| May 4, 2018

Caring for two litters of puppies can certainly keep a person busy! Both Pearl’s and Carina’s puppies are weaned now and eating puppy food like piggies!  In the house I have mostly kept the two litters separated, but I decided to see how they would do if I let them play together outside. I had [...]
