There's a Fancy Dancer at my house

Mike and Brandi of Braylor's papillons have sent Braylor's Fancy Dancer, Danni, to Florida to compete for her championship title. Thank you for sending this very typey little girl to Rocyn. She is a delightful girl and Zorro has fallen head over tail in love. Just like a lot of teenage boys he followed her everywhere and became an absolute pest. When she would try and run him off he would sit away from her and just wag his tail and whine. He was really quite funny to watch. Bad news for Zorro, she's come into season and is now living in a different part of the house. So he can hear her and smell her but he can't even get close enough to see her. Poor Zorro!

More Zorro wins

Sunshine State Papillon Club show held in Sarasota, FL July 6 with judge Colleen Brossard. My boy Zorro took Winners Dog from the Bred By class. He then took Best Bred By Exhibitor for another pretty ribbon and then was given an Award of Merit, over specials. He earned 2 more points. The next day at the Greater Venice shows held at the same location and under judge Roy Keiser Zorro was awarded Winners Dog and Best of Winners for another 2 points. Go, Zorro, Go!

Jason gets a new home and a new name

Jason is the first pup to go to his forever family. Rosemary Leone picked him up on Monday, October 1. She has decided to rename him Rocyns Leonardo Da Vinci, Leo for short. She is thinking of Therapy dog training and he is thinking of treat training (when ever he looks pitifully at her she gives up a tasty treat). It will be an adventure, one I am sure they will both enjoy.

Back to Back Best of Breed

Columbia Kennel Club shows held in Columbia, South Carolina, Sept 29 and 30. Judges William Usherwood and Dorothy Dalton gave Zorro Winners Dog, Best of Winners and Best of Breed for a total of 2 more points. He now has 9 points including one major.
Our side trip to Charleston, South Carolina was very nice. I can highly recommend the BoatHouse in Charleston and the Solstice Kitchen and Wine Bar in Columbia. I am going to have to eat nothing but lettuce for 2 weeks to make up for the weekends wonderful experiences.

Zorro walks out with the big points

My puppy born here last year, Rocyns Don Diego de la Vega, or Zorro for short, went to the Douglasville Kennel Club show in Atlanta, GA, Sept 21, 2007 and won 3 points under judge Michelle Billings. She was surprised to learn he was just over a year old because of his big beautiful coat, thanks to his daddy, Forevr Chippendales Dancer.


Lucy and Turbo are the very proud new parents to a litter of 5 boys born on the Fourth of July. All are good size, with nice markings. Four of them are red sables like mom and dad and one is a tri color. Robert has decided to name them after Miami Dolphin football players so we have Trent (Green), Dan (Marino), Zach (Thomas), Nick (Bonaconte) and Jason (Taylor). This was quite the surprise because she was not as big as she was when she had 4 puppies two years ago. This will be her last litter and what a way to finish.

Wins for Desi

At the Toy Dog Club of Central Florida show held in Orlando June 30 and July 1 Desi, Forevr Burning Desire at Rocyn won back to back for 3 points under judges Ken DiLorenzo and Mrs Charlotte Patterson. She has a total of 9 points now and just needs her majors to finish.

Lucy finishes her Rally title

At the South Dade Kennel Club show, May 6, 2007, Lucy, Rocyns She's On Fire, completed her first Rally Novice title. We had to skip the competition the day before because both conformation and rally were on at the same time but on Sunday we had enough time to compete and get back to the other ring on time. Most of my fellow papillon competitors came over to the rally ring to cheer us on. Lucy completed her title in 3 consecutive runs. This fall, after her last litter has arrived, we will resume her rally training.
