  1. Fire In The Sky

    Just as I got comfy on the couch, being ever so happy that it is Friday, the baddogs began raising Cain in the back.  I sighed, got off the couch, came into the kitchen.  Oh, my baddogs have a sense of drama.  This is what we saw out the backdoor.

    I wish I’d been in Ohio today to watch my Grandpuppies’ great show, but I am so glad I live in New Mexico.

  2. Western Reserve – As I Learn It

    August 12, 2011 by myeye

    This morning the three Scout/Chase puppies (part of Janet Suber’s “The Ocho”) showed in Puppy Sweeps at Western Reserve.  A puppy bred by Jon Kimes won the 6-9 puppy bitch class, Lowri was 2nd, Ginger was 3rd, and Sally was 4th.  Seven girl puppies showed in the class.

    In the regular 6-9 puppy bitch class, Lowri was 1st and Ginger was 2nd.  Sally is entered in Bred By Exhibitor class so will show in just a little while.

    More as I learn it.


    Sally was 2nd in Bred-By.  We’re having a great day!  . . . and I’m in Albuquerque . . . 😀

    Lowri was Best of Winners, Chase made the cut in Breed and was second in the Stud Dog Class behind Smarty.  Scout was best brood bitch.

    There was to be a breed seminar tonight, but everyone was too tired to go so they canceled it.  Chase, Lowri and Ginger were invited to be the demo dogs.

    I’m not sure I have the stamina for tomorrow . . .

  3. Waiting For The Phone to Ring

    Chase and Lowri, and Scout and Sally, and Ginger, and Treasure are all at Western Reserve.  Lowri has only the point she earned her first weekend out, Ginger has only the Major she earned her first weekend out, Sally has 14 points with three majors and the point she earned her first time out.  The little girls will be 8 months old tomorrow.  It’s pretty exciting as a dog Gramma to know that they are at the largest annual specialty (next to our Nationals).  What will the judges think?  How will the puppies act?  Will we have some success?  . . . as for the big dogs, Chase is entered in Best of Breed and in Stud Dog class.  This is Chase’s first time in Stud Dog.  Two of the little girls will accompany him.  Scout will be in Best of Breed and in Brood Bitch Class — two of the little girls will accompany Scout.  Treasure is, I hear, naked.  She is due in season the first of September and will be bred to our Chaseman — more little red Cardis puppies expected in November.

    I am so glad it’s Friday.  Tomorrow is dog-food-grinding day.  First thing in the morning I’ll go down to our farmers’ market at the park and bring back the veggies.  The meat is already here.  Then I’ll make up a big batch of dinners.  At noon, I must take a photo of the full moon coming up over the mountains.  I promised it as the background for a Bulletin ad.

    My neighbor John will be over on Sunday to fix stuff.  One would think he’d been here enough to fix everything, but there is so much fixin’ to do.  Then we can start on the “Let’s build . . ”

    I promise photos — it’s been a week of late days at the office.
