Enjoying Life's Moments Responsibly

Just Look At Them!

This heart shaped bundle of puppy love is the cutest thing EVER!!! The puppies are two weeks old today and ll of their eyes are open. They should be up and mobile over the next few days, burning off some of that puppy-pudge. They grow so fast - by this time next week...

Quick Staining Tip

I have beefed Georgie up and plan on bringing him back out to shows. His year off has allowed him to partake in a habit that he got from his daddy - Chewing on his toes on his rear feet. The staining that he chewing creates is beyond annoying - more so that tear...

Too Cute Not To Capture

I just had to snap photos of this adorable puppy pileup! LOOK AT THEM!!! This is such a laid-back litter of puppies. Seriously, very chill! I can pick them up, lay them on their backs in the palm of my hands and just love on them for hours. I cannot tell you how many...

Now Lookie Here!

Baby, our second Chihuahua, took to our oldest the moments she became part of the family. Even as a tiny puppy, she knew her human was Bradley! She turned 10 back in November and oh the adventures these two have taken in the last few years. He moved out and got...

I Week Old

Milly is definitely growing them on the outside! Her Uber-milk is MAJORLY Uber! The puppies have just about doubled their birth weight and all have constant plump bellies. I LOVE plump puppy bellies! Unlike our last litter with KC, where I had to supplement and hand...

You Think She’s Comfy?

If you have followed our blog you know we have been working on building her confidence and on all of her fears, since Breezy came to live with us backing October. She really has come a very, very long way! She greets guests when they come into the house, she sticks...

Pluming Up Nicely

As with all litters born here, I documented the puppies at 3 days old yesterday with a weigh-in and photoshoot. They are all gaining weight nicely, plumping up like I expected. I also now have a chance to see what some of their markings might be. We have two cream...

Dewclaw Time

The puppies are three days old today - The perfect day to remove dewclaws on puppies. I have gotten it down to a science but need to have someone help them while I do it - I need someone to hold them! Thank you so much Shelly for your willingness to help! Plus we got...

They Are Here!

And all I can say is Milly is one amazing free whelping momma! I really wasn't too sure what to expect. With unsuccessful breeding and then a singleton I wasn't sure if she inherited her mother and grandmother's whelping genetics. Oh yeah she did! And then some! She...

Red, Hot & Boom 2017

We have lived in this house for over 15 years and for 14 years, on July 3rd, we have watched the Red, Hot and Boom fireworks and listened to the live music from our own backyard. We have tended to our dogs while watching movies on the couch and usually eating...

Bathing Beauty

Today I got to give Olive her final luxurious bath in the Figgy bathtub. I love this dog more than anything and I'm so happy Gail has agreed to bring her home with her. Keeping Olive safe and happy all that matters to me! And knowing I will still get to see her makes...

Back To Table Training For Us!

So my wish for yesterday to be a simple blip on Tino's radar did not come true. He was actually very agitated on the table with absolutely no patience whatsoever. I was very stern putting him back into place but he was not going to have any of it. The judge today was...

No Repeat

Not that Iwould ever expect the same thing to happen two days in a row but what did happen was the furthest from my mind. I have worked SO hard on getting Tino to behave on the table and not freak out when the judge put their hands on him. It all started his very...

Unbelievably Honored!

With the break that we took for the Canine Flu, I was very excited once confirmed that our guys had kennel cough and healed up perfectly. I was even more excited to have our first shows back in the game being in our home town! Only 30 minutes form the house makes for...

Queen On Her Throne

So as I have mentioned in the past, Breezy has claimed the round chair in our living room as her own and apparently she has done so by hiding all of her treasures and finds in the crevasse and under the pillows. Dog toys, paper towel rolls, deer antler chews and even...

With Pup

Clearly the breeding to Georgie took because Milly has doubled in size over the last week! And yes, that means the bets have been placed. I think there are two very large puppies in there! That's my kinda luck! Hubby thinks that there are four or five in there. All I...

Anything For Food

Today we did a bit of bait training in the backyard. I have found that the RedBarn Beef Roll does WONDERS in keeping their attention and making them want more. Here I was using it as a topper put on weight! I didn't realize I had such a Goldmine! Georgie and TIno did...

It Was All So Weird

Driving down to Tampa with No dog in the car and walking around the fairgrounds today was extremely surreal. Granted, I got to enjoy the afternoon with my wonderful husband, but I haven't been to a dog show without a dog in over 10 years! My heart hurts knowing that I...

Visitors

We have a couple of Havanese staying with us this weekend - Gotta love Hotel Figgy - And they have truly made themselves at home. I have traveled to shows with Brittany and Zanny so they already know me but our home, family and other dogs? Honestly, it didn't take...

She’s Been My Project

I have taken it upon myself to make Style my little project while she stays here. Socializing her to different sights, sounds, smells, people, places and well, everything! I must admit I feel I have been successful. Her confidence has grown leaps and bounds but she...
