  1. Flutter On the Fly

    April 3, 2015 by myeye

    Last weekend, Jessica Viera showed Flutter (Bluefox Elyan Mariposa) at shows in Anchorage.  On Saturday, Flutter was Winners Bitch/Best of Winners for her third Major and a completed Championship.  The judge was Robert Vandiver.  Flutter is seventeen months old.  On Sunday, Jess moved Flutter up to the Champion class for Best of Breed and Judge Margaret Jones awarded her Best of Breed over three other champions.  In the Herding Group Judge Jones gave her a Group III — I think/hope the first of many Group awards for this pretty girl.

    I can’t say enough good things about Flutter’s “other mother” and primo handler Jessica Viera.  She does such a lovely job of exhibiting her (and of washing off the mud).  Our little girl is definitely a pig-dog!

    Flutter’s Championship/Group Placement completed the requirements for her mother Lowri’s Register of Merit Bronze award.  Flutter is the fourth champion in Lowri’s litter by GCh Twinroc Santa Paws ROMg “Dickens”.  A fifth puppy, Peyton needs only a 3-point major to complete his Championship.  We have been on a wild ride with this group of puppies — and have we ever enjoyed it.  Here is Flutter’s “new champion” photo — she cleans up well.

  2. Snow Queen

    January 5, 2015 by myeye

    I know you all want to see puppy photos — and I promise there will be many.  The baybeez have opened their eyes, but still spend most of the day sleeping with little breaks for eating and waddling over one another.  They are very cute.

    This post, however, is about our 14-1/2 month old girl Flutter.  Flutter lives in Alaska with Jessica Viera.  Jess shows her.  Jess also takes great photos.  Yesterday in single digit temperatures, they had a photo shoot.  Here is our Snow Queen “Bluefox Elyan Mariposa” in a winter wonderland.  Thank you, Jessica, for braving the elements to satisfy my craving for photos.  Flutter has earned both her Majors and has 12 points.  We hope to soon add Champion before her name.

  3. Flutter – Best of Breed at Alaska Herding Group

    November 17, 2014 by myeye

    On November 7th, it was another major for our Flutter (“Bluefox Elyan Mariposa”).  Jessica showed her from the classes to Best of Breed over two Champions to earn her second Major.  Two days later she picked up two more points so is now at 12 with both her Majors.  The next shows are in January so the little FlutterBye is hanging out with Jessica and Brian Viera (and, I hear, looking for mud).

  4. Flutter At (Almost) Nine Months Old

    Little Flutter has been enjoying those long Alaska days.  She will be 9 months old on Friday.  Jess sent photos yesterday.  I think this baby is so pretty!

  5. The Hurrier I go . . . (Photos Added)

    June 9, 2014 by myeye

    I am behind on blogging — w-a-a-a-y behind.

    My granddaughter Adrienne and her Mexican Folk dance Troup Baila! Baila! leave for New York City on Wednesday.  She is so excited!  They will be there a week to dance, shop, and sight see.  She is 12 so this is a very big deal for her.

    Our Lowri/Dickens puppies have been making waves.  The Red Rocket (Gimme) has earned her Grand Champion majors and has all her GCH competition wins, but, she’s only 7-1/2 months old.  That is one hot shot puppy.  Of course, co-owner handler Angelia Hall has done a wonderful job with her.  Litter brother Kevin has earned two majors, litter sister Fable has earned two majors.  Sister Flutter has a major reserve and a minor reserve –turns out she is a fine example of a baddog.  At the show a week or so ago, she told off the German Shepherds that wanted to come into HER ring.  Jessica is trying to ‘splain how it really works before she goes to her next show weekend.  Litter brother Peyton has some single points AND he earned his RN title a week or so ago.  What a smart boy!

    Here are some photos of Flutter from Jessica.  I think she’s such a cute girl!  She is 7-1/2 months old in these photos.

    Andy (Chase/Dory) earned the first leg of his RN with a perfect score.  He is studying the Utility exercises and will be unstoppable when Sheri decides it is time.  Copper is about ready to trial for her CD and will begin serious herding training next month.  Sister Addie has almost no hair at the moment so is home learning lessons.

    Chase and I are preparing for an Agility trial the last weekend of this month.  He’s not trialed since the National Specialty.  I hope he’s forgotten that he likes to stop in the middle of the weaves to bark.  If he’s very good, he will have a pretty red girl come visiting.  If he’s not — he’ll still have the pretty red girl come visiting.

    Our old Inca, sometimes known as the Red Empress, celebrated her 12th birthday on May 26th.  Aside from a few white hairs on her muzzle, she looks wonderful (not that there is anything really wrong with white hair).  She and our Salsa play all day, drag weeds into the house, and take dog bowls outside.  Salsa begins Puppy Agility tomorrow evening.  I think we are going to have a blast.

    Taryn over at A Tail of Two Cardis is celebrating her 5th blogiversary with a give away — you might want to visit her — though you will have to disclose some forgetful thing that you’ve done — could win a $20 Starbucks card . . .

    My 6th blogiversary was in March and I totally blew it.  This is post #1,875.  Hard to believe I could bore so many for so long.

    I promise photos for the next post.
