  1. Dog Show Prizes Make Nice Birthday Presents

    August 16, 2013 by myeye

    In 2012, our Lowri earned her first Group Placing on my birthday in June.  That alone was a great present.  This year, the day before my birthday, Lowri earned her first Group I — THAT is a SUPER birthday present.  To add the cherry on the top, Susan and Cheryl sent me the prize for the Group I.  The Group Firsts were made by Paul Gaskins of Sappling Grove Pottery — and I think this is lovely.  If you come to my house and have Guacamole or Salsa and chips, you’ll be dipping from a very special bowl.  Thank you to my great co-owners and our very pretty Lowri.

  2. WOW! Santa Was Here!

    Cheryl Kienast sent me a package which arrived on Saturday, but I made it to the Post Office too late to retrieve it.  I picked it up today.  There were lots of fun little things in it — edibles for me and for the baddogs, BUT this is the piece de resistance

    Yes, at my house it is all about the Chase.  Forever more, Jessica Viera will be front and center in my living room, earning Chase his Grand Championship, and there are lots of photos of his children.  How I love the baby baddogs!

    Here is the left side with more Chase and his kids Nola and Lowri and Baby Dinah

    . . . and the right edge with more Chase and kids  Holmes, Lowri, and Nola

    Here’s the left middle with the rare Tennessee Brindled Alligator and more of the kids

    Is this not the coolest gift ever?  Cheryl, you rock.  Thank you so much.

    Yesterday my friend Susan (Shields) Long said goodbye to her sweet red boy Kearney (DC Bluefox’s Kearney).  She took him to the bridge because he was in so much pain from an aggressive brain tumor.  It was about a month from the time she realized he was not well until yesterday.  Kear would have been three years old on Sunday.  Although there are so many unanswered questions, this is not a time to ask, but rather it is time to turn to the dogs still with us and to let them know how much we appreciate them and the joy they share with us.  Dogs’ life spans are too short so when a dog, like Kearney, must go so early, it is terribly painful.  I will always remember Kearney moving his stock in his workmanlike manner, completely tuned to Susan’s requests.  I must believe (to stem the tears) that there are sheep and ducks over the Rainbow Bridge, and that Kearney already has them in good order.

    That’ll do, Kearney.  Good dog!

  4. Let’s Celebrate

    June 17, 2012 by myeye

    We’ve had quite a weekend.  Last Saturday and Sunday were outta’ sight.  I think I posted that Lowri was Best of Breed both days in Asheville.

    Yesterday she again was Best of Breed under Judge Paula Hartinger.  Today, Houston Clark gave her Best of Breed (in Waynesville) and then Roger Hartinger awarded her a Group IV.  It was Lowri and Cheryl’s first Group Placement.  I would hope there are more to come.  I am so proud of the training and conditioning and handling that Susan and Cheryl have provided Lowri.  When a pretty, sound, typey dog has dedicated owners, the sky is the limit.

    For my birthday I asked for a Group placement — ask and you shall receive!
