Ringin In The New Year

It's a quiet night at the figgy house  as we ring in the year 2018. It's been amazing year of accomplishments personally as well as professionally but I'm excited to see what the new year brings. The dogs on the other hand? They're not too sure of this cold weather...

Oh Yeah – We’re Good!

Since I've been training Tipsy to walk on the lead I thought I would take her and Duper out together see how well they do. Oh yeah! We are all good! The two of them walked together as if they been doing it their entire lives. He's definitely helped her with her...

Duper Is Here!

My dear friend Marcy and I have been planning this day for a long time. She has a very special dog named Duper that we decided would come down here to Florida to get some showing experience under his belt. Also under my belt!  He would give me an opportunity to show a...

Merry Figgy Christmas

I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! For those of you know our family, it's a very quiet holiday this year as it is our first as unique empty-nesters. We took advantage of the empty house and set up a very special tree from years ago. Back in the days...

We Placed Again!!!!

I'm so unbelievably proud! Barbara and I have work successfully together for the last six years on the Meet the Breed booth at the AKC National Championships here in Orlando. From the moment we realized we had a chance to actually compete, she and I put together our...

What An Amazing Day In OTown!

I honestly don't even know where to begin to share just how amazing today was! I woke up thinking it was just going to be such an honor to participate. Never in my wildest dreams but I've thought things would unfold the way that they did! We didn't come home with any...

We Have A Tie!

And I don't mean in a game ! I mean in a BREEDING YAHOOOOO!!! February Milly-Tino Bey Beys!    

Day Three I Actually Had to WORK!

Boy did I have a lot to do today! Not only did I get to use my amazing leash holdings skills but I also got to do a photo session! Family Christmas photos and senior portrait,s in addition to ringside candids! I was totally in my element and loving my time behind the...

Let The Game Begin!

The AKC National's Week has begun here in Orlando and I couldn't NOT partake in the fun! I didn't enter any of our Chihuahuas during the week - Only on Friday for the Owner Handler competition and the CCA Regional Specialty - But when Sandy and I talked about heading...

The Girls Are In Season

Both Milly and Marge have come into season and both will be bred! Both breedings are very exciting as well! First, this would be Margie's last breeding and then she will retire with us permanently. I'm very excited to see what she produces. She'll be going back to...

Hurricane Has A Perfect Forever Mommy!

When Georgia contacted me about Hurricane and wondered if he might be a good fit for her lifestyle I was like OMG yes! He's the sweetest and most social one of the bunch - So much so that we would have been more than happy to have him live his life out with the Figgy...

So Close! And Then A YAHOOOO!

So they say you need to walk into the ring every single time is if you're going to win. I really suck at that! I walked in assuming I was going to have the same results as the last two days… A select if I'm lucky… There are way too many amazing dogs here this weekend....

Ugly Sweater Day

While Tino and I may not be getting our owner-handler points we've been getting Select, so that's going towards his grand. I can't really complain. Today was not about Tino and I've. It was about celebrating the amazing accomplishments of my friends! Dolly got a...

Playing With The Big Boys

I knew when I decided to bring Tino out has a grand champion that it would be difficult. Thanks to my lack of skill, training him to be a "special " is not my forte. He doesn't stand there like a statue with his tail wagging when I try to free bait him. He usually...

Our Own Jungle-Gym

While on the subject of our sweet Breezy, I should share that she is hands-down, the sweetest step-mommy to our Chihuahuas! So maternal and so gentle with even the tiniest of Chihuahuas, she will bend down and play with them for hours! She will very gently paw them,...

Thanks For The Girls

While I absolutely love my life being surrounded by Chihuahuas, on this Thanksgiving, I wish to give thanks for the gifts that Junior Showmanship has brought into our family's lives. Not only unbelievable opportunities for my daughter to experience the amazing life...

So Much To Celebrate Today!

Today started again in the beginner puppy ring but this time there was no ring conflict! I was actually able to show Tipsy! It wasn't as cold today so that was definitely at our advantage. Plus today we got to show with Rita and Kisses! This is just haven't seen each...

Her First Win!

So my second day of the show weekend started on the somewhat stressful side. The Beginner Puppy competition placed Tipsy going into the ring right around the same time Tino would be going into the Breed ring. But of course! Why would this be easy? Emma and Anna...

Slow and Steady!

Being a Thursday, the entries are usually small at midweek dog shows and today was no different. Dolly is here again this week with Issue - and she is a very nice female. The odds of Tino beating her for Breed are rather slim so again, we are here to earn those on a...

Comfort Food With Friends

So I will be honest, I feel like I was JUST here - Which I guess technically I was only two days ago. It is nice to be back in the company of great friends for another great dog show weekend but this time it is with ALL of the friends I wished were here last weekend...
