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 [...]

A Weekend To Remember!

              Click on the pictures for a better view. Last week was a dreary week of rain, mud, and me fighting a flu- like virus.  The Collie Club of Austin put on their specialty shows last weekend, and we had some of our collies entered.  The Collie Club of [...]

Good news / Bad news

| January 8, 2018

NO  PUPPIES       First the bad news- disappointing anyway. Neither Tracer nor Reba are going to have puppies. I thought for sure they were both pregnant, but I began to get concerned that even though they had both thickened in the middle,  I could feel no puppies. They both went to the vet [...]

Samson, aka GR CH Scalloways Lion Hunter, took a trip to the Florida Eukanuba shows with David and Jennifer Harper, and has done great! The [...]

Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.  (John Lennon) – Lennon hit on a profound truth here – with its roots in the Bible. I’m busy. You’re busy. We are all running around planning for this and that. Hopefully though, we remember to enjoy the many moments that make up our lives. [...]
