Congratulations to Kathy Metcalfe who owns and showed Ginger to every point, to Janet Suber who bred this lovely girl (as well as the rest of The Ocho), to Angie Hall who flew with Ginger at the National Specialty to Reserve Winners Bitch.  We’re very proud of this team.

In other cool news, Anne Kowalczyk, with whom I co-own Holmes, has decided her Kennel name will be Bella Cardigans.  She’s building a web site for Holmes and Dory and Chloe.  We plan to have Dory puppies here this winter and you’d better believe Anne’s site will be populated with photos of the babies.  So far, Anne has added 4 points to Dory’s collection.  She is now at 8 with one of her majors.

We hope you all have a safe, fun-filled Independence Day.  I’ve not yet decided what I shall do to proclaim my independence (and from what).

*  My records show that Chase earned his final points for his Grand Championship on June 10th.  Who am I to argue?

    Huge congratulations on the new titles! That Scouty/Chase cross is something very special! (Of course, I’m biased ) Kathy Metcalfe is multi-talented–a fabulous agility and conformation handler/trainer!

  2. Nancy Wirz says:

    Fantastic news!!! The upcoming litter from Chase and Dory should be a real winner for either conformation or herding folks. When will you be accepting names and/or deposits for the puppies? I’m planning on making the Nationals next year and meeting all these wonderful Corgi people and their charges.
