Enjoying Life's Moments Responsibly

Day Three Topped Them All!

The final day of any show is bitter sweet but with the 10 hour drive ahead of us, today was exceptionally different than most. We had some late afternoon ring times, starting the day with Chihuahuas. We checked out of the hotel and packed up or stuff and all of the...

Day Two Was Amazing!

I still have a long way to go in master the craft of showing and Tino is such a trooper as I try to expand my knowledge now that we are in the Best of Variety and Group rings with the big boys. Dolly and Darius have been so kind to share tips and suggestions on how to...

Tired But Well Worth It!

W headed out last night for our 9 hour drive to Greensboro, NC, arriving during the wee-hours this morning. I caught 2 hours sleep before heading to the show site for the Chihuahua ring time. This was the start to Tino's first weekend in the big boy ring as a Champion...

Handful Doesn’t Quite Explain It

The puppies are 6 weeks old and boy have their personalities blossomed! We have some very energetic little ones here and they are going to be a LOT of fun to watch grow up. And the boys are going to be amazing family pets!! BIG TIME!!! They all have a bit of their...

The Greeter

Dude has always been a dog that prefers humans over fellow canines but in his old age, he seems to have a toddler melt-down if he cannot greet and give affection to anyone who enters our home! I mean, "scratch at the door until the paint peels off" melt-down!!!...

Can’t Get Enough

Since this litter was less than a week old, my daughter-in-law has taken every opportunity to gather all five puppies in her arms and hold them. I have photos to prove it too! Once a weekend she cuddles them up and takes in all of the puppy breath and kisses. They are...

Another Weekend Together

Baby and Dude are back together again this weekend just like old times - As the oldest tow in the crew, they rocked this o=sue 10 years ago as the two alphas. Now they live on laps like a king and queen - or in this weekend's case, right next to the grill that is mass...

Grow With Me Ball Pit

So there are several breeders out there who have used this baby toy with their puppies. I have put off the purchase since it is hefty in price for puppies to chew and urinate on. Was it worth the investment? I found am open-box item on Amazon for 30.0 and thought I...

Skipped A Generation?

Teddy puppies are known for sugar drops around the age of 6 weeks. My first Teddy litter had all three girls crashing at 5 weeks of age  - KC was the first! Now Milly is not a Teddy daughter but she is a KCee granddaughter and that is obviously where the hypoglycemia...

5 Weeks Old

The puppies are 5 weeks old and they are truly coming into their own. Their little personalities are starting to come through and I see we are going to have some pistols in the bunch. I cannot wait to them them blossom even more over the next several weeks and I can...

Sawyer Is Quite The Character!

So Sawyer has been with us for four days now and he has made himself at home. He loves hanging with the boys, Tino and Georgie, and has proven to be as stubborn as the breed is known to be. He is also a complete riot and beyond entertaining! He is completely obsessed...

He’s Pooped

Mr. Tino has had quite the exciting weekend, followed by a lengthy 10 hour drive home in the middle of the night, I didn't get home until 7AM!!! Granted the boys got the sleep the entire drive home but clearly that wasn't enough for the new Champion in the house!...

First Time As A Big Boy

Our last day in Kenner was filled with lessons, excitement and a new addition to the Figgy crew! For the first time, both my entries were in their variety's Best of Breed competition as Champions! While neither placed or gained points, they BOTH earned Best...

We Have A New Champion!!

When I finished Georgie at the Tampa Bay Chihuahua Club Specialty it was a true honor. I realized the likelihood of finishing your dog at a specialty is slim, so to have it happen TWICE and this time to have it done from the Bred-By class? Honored doesn't even...

The Reserve King & Then Some!

Today was one that will truly go down in the history books for me. Many, many firsts and lots of smiles. First, while waiting for the Chihuahua ring time we started our early morning with a very special treat - Coffee and Beignets. OMG  I have never eaten them before...

The Girl’s Figured It Out First!

I started my day with these adorable photos sent from my husband. Apparently last night he started the puppy-mush food training and the two girls are the ones that figured it all to first. They clearly led the way for the boys to learn about the delicacy on the plate....

Day One In Kenner Was Nice!

With an early morning ring time for Chihuahuas but several other breeds being shown by Dolly and other friends, I was at the show site all day! It started with both my boys showing fabulously - I couldn't have been prouder! With Georgie having been out of the show...

Quite The Fun Trip

Dolly and I started our journey to Kenner, Louisiana very early this morning, allowing us to take our time and not be rushed. We don't show until tomorrow and with over 9 hours to drive, a leisurely journey was the best choice! Between potty and gas breaks, we chowed...

Almost 4 Weeks

The puppies turn four weeks old tomorrow, the same day I am leaving for a trip to Louisiana. I did their photos and weights but also decided to move them downstairs for our puppy kindergarten for the start of their socialization. Also because I found two of the...

Tropical Storm Emily

Thanks to the storm today, Blue has learned a major lesson about being a straggler when it comes to getting back into the house. She is one that likes to explore and dig in the dirt under the deck. Blue is on the reclusive side and this can unfortunately make us...
