  1. Just Ask

    July 9, 2012 by myeye

    My birthday was in mid-June — actually I was forced to share Fathers Day this year.  Lowri and Susan and Cheryl were going to the Western Carolina Dog Fanciers Association Shows in Waynesboro NC.  I asked them (imagine whiney voice), “Do you think, for my birthday, you and Lowri could get a Group Placement?”

    By golly, that afternoon, Susan called to tell me that Lowri had earned her first Group Placement — a Group IV.  The moral to the story is if you don’t ask, you will not receive.

    Note how svelte Cheryl looks!  Thanks for my present!

  2. It’s Cooler and a Weekend Report

    July 9, 2012 by myeye

    We had some rain last week.  Now a cold front is moving in — doesn’t mean it will be “cold” — just not 100 degrees.  The rain was great although I am now on call to attack weeds that will be taller than I am in no time.  It’s okay.  We desperately needed the moisture.

    The baddogs and relatives had a terrific weekend.  Lisa Anderson DVM. whose Chase litter was born June 24th (last summer), finished her Riley this weekend at Dallas.  Riley is Chase’s 9th Champion — 6th to finish this year.  This was Lisa’s first Cardigan litter and we are so happy for her.  Her official name will CH Snapdragon Something Unspoken.  Riley now gets to do the fun stuff.  Riley’s litter brother Killian is on the road with Angie Hall and earned another 2 points yesterday.  The handsome red man is now up to 6 points.  His big half sister Naughty Nola — also with Angie — earned another 2 points yesterday.  She is up to 8 points with one of her majors.  I hope she gets her little baddog self home before summer is done.

    In Illinois, our friend Anne, took Holmes to DeKalb for Beginner Novice competition and he finished his BN title.  Holmes is now GCH C-Myste The Game’s Afoot At Elyan RN BN.  Anne is very proud — and so am I!  Pretty Dory, the  girl Anne got from Amy Hill, was again Best of Breed over a Champion, for another point.  Dory is up to 9 points with one major.  Next weekend Dory has major shows, so we all need to cross body parts that Anne and Dory are successful.  By the way, Anne’s “kennel name” will be Bella Cardigans.  Bellisima!

    On Monday morning I always ask, “what happened to the weekend?”  Today is no different — so much stuff did not get done!  So, I’ll go in to the office where there is also so much stuff that has not been done.

    Have a great week.
