What a weekend!

Mogwaii arrives

I took Finn to New York to return him to Ruth Ann and she gave me his brother to show. They call him Mogwaii, which is the animal before it becomes a gremlin in the movie "Gremlins". He is such a sweet boy just like his movie version. But we don't have to worry about bathing him or what time we feed him. So now we have Kingshaven Upper Crust.

New York and Westminister 2006

Robert and I are headed to the Big Apple to watch the dog that we co-own with Ruth Ann and Danny Ford, CH Forevr TX Redheaded Stranger, Willie, strut his stuff in the BIG SHOW. But first I am going to help Ruth Ann show a puppy at the Papillion Club specialty show held on Saturday and Sunday. I am going to show Forevr Rock Hudson in the 9-12 month puppy classes. We certainly had a good time and on Sunday we won our class and WINNERS DOG for 4 points. Mr William Cunningham was our judge. Sunday was also the day of the BLIZZARD OF 06'. The blizzard deposited 27 inches of snow in Central Park, it brought the city to a stand still, was at times white out conditions and there was thunder and lightning. What a day! I have never seen so much snow in my whole life, being a Florida girl and all. I wanted to make a snowman but the snow was too dry. It was beautiful.
The next day was Monday, time for Willie to do his thing. He went out there with the big boys, dogs much older and seasoned than he and with a handler he had just met. But he didn't care, he loves to show and he did. We'll have to wait for another year or so to get in the ribbons but he really strutted his stuff. It was so thrilling to be there and watching a dog that I had finished and co-own. Next time I'm going to be out there with a dog.

Stryker is a CHAMPION

February 4, 2006
Conyers kennel Club of Georgia, judge Mr. Houston Clark
Stryker wins his class and goes on to Winners Dog and another big FIVE point major win. He completed his requirements all from the Bred By Exhibitor classes and so we will be awarded a medallion from AKC and will be invited to the Eucanuba Invitational in California in December. Stryker is the first dog that I have bred that I was able to finish and to do it from the Bred By class is extra special for me. Thank you Karen Byrd for encouraging me to show and complete his title from BBE. Thank you Ruth Ann and Danny Ford for allowing the breeding to CH En-La's Bravissimo, "Bravo" that produced this wonderful little dog and for keeping him alive when the litter was born a week early. You are both more than friends, you are family.
This will be Bravo's 24th champion offspring and we could not be prouder.
He finished three days before his first birthday, so he will be home trying to grow enough fringe to be competitive. Watch for him next year.

Florida January Circuit

Greater Daytona Dog Fanciers Assoc judge Mr Desmond Murphy
Stryker goes Winners Dog and Best of Winners for 5 points

January 7, 2006
Greater Daytona DFA judge Mrs Glenda Dawkins
Finn wins a very competitive Open class and goes on to Winners Dog and Best of Winners for 5 points and finishing his American Championship. Finn has half of his Finnish Championship and is a Moldavian Champion. He will be returning to Finland to finish his championship in that country. I have never finished a dog so quickly(in just 6 shows) and with 3 five point majors. Another FIRST for me.

New Years in Texas

Robert and I took Blondie home to Texas and stayed to ring in the New Year with Mike and Brandi, and Danny and Ruth Ann. We had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect, the hospitality was legendary and we made some new friends and got reacquainted with some old friends. Mike and Brandi's house was a whirlwind of activity. A very intensive "Doggie" weekend. I brought home Rita, Braylor's Lovely Rita to show and RuthAnn gave me Desi, a beautiful little bitch. She is out of CH Forevr Burning Memories, Pricilla, and CH KIngshaven Uphold The Dream, Finn. I finished both mom and dad so Ruth Ann felt that I should have this little girl. We are so excited about her and grateful to have the opportunity to finally have a quality bitch that we hope will be our foundation. Her name will be Forevr at Rocyn Burning Desire.
