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 [...]

Our new Poppy/Samson puppies! Plus big show news!

| June 15, 2018

  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 [...]

Lots of good news!

| April 24, 2018

  We got a lot of good news this weekend! First we heard that Layla picked up a 5 POINT MAJOR  WIN in Arkansas this past weekend. That’s Layla’s second major- YAY!  Layla was bred by Cheryl Kobularcik, and Susan Joslin and was shown by Susan. I co-own this elegant tri girl with Cheryl. She [...]

Our sweet babies !

| April 15, 2018

Both Pearl’s and Carina’s puppies are doing awesome- getting cuter day by day.  Pearl’s puppies are a little bigger right now. Carina’s babies are right behind– making good progress too. I’m sticking by my previous predictions on which puppies are rough or smooth. I named Pearl’s pups Irish names for now since they were born [...]

Blessed! The puppies are here!

| April 1, 2018

I’m counting my blessings and they are many! Above all I am thankful for Jesus- that whosoever believes in Him would not perish but have everlasting life. Nothing tops that gift. I am thankful for the love, kindness, and help of my family and friends.  My loved ones and buddies that have given their time [...]
