  1. The 17th — It Was A Very Good Day

    May 17, 2011 by myeye

    Today Holmes-puppy was again Winners Dog and Best of Winners, and today it was a 3-point major.  Holmes is now up to 9 points (including the major).  Thursday morning he is heading up to Cortez Colorado for the Durango Kennel Club shows.  It is three more days of bitch majors with only a few dogs entered — where are all the boys?  So, I will have all my body parts crossed that he finishes his Championship this weekend.  As Chase’s firstborn, it would be nice if he  was the first child to earn a Championship.  Ali, Nikki and Deuce are also rolling along,  and, honestly, I’ll be delighted when each of them finishes — regardless of the order.

    I was so happy Holmes won that I forgot to stand behind the official show photographer and take a photo for the blog — there was my camera around my neck . . . and brain-fart!  I think it was a good show photo though.  I’ll post it when it comes in.  Holmes looked very handsome.  He has bodied out — still has that elegant line and low station (from him mom).  His Championship will put Phoebe one point from her ROMb.  Holmes and I will try to add another point this winter — probably a TD or perhaps an HT late this summer.

    In my email today were the VetGen PRA test reports for Holmes and Nola.  Both are PRA Clear.  I didn’t expect anything else, but you just never know so it’s nice to have official confirmation.  I’m now awaiting Nola’s DM test results.

    So, it’s a wrap!
