Enjoying Life's Moments Responsibly

Partners In Crime

Breezy and Tino are honestly they best of friends. They play together, nap together, and even sometimes eat together. They are the oddest pair but it works, I tell ya! So, Breezy has a very weird habit - She loves to chew the squeakers out of toys! We have had a...

OMG It Was Amazing!

Being a Monday show, the entries are usually smaller than shows on the weekend. Today was no different. There were a grand total of six entries - two dogs and four bitches - NO specials! Tino and I were the first in the ring and I am here to tell you that he did...

Just Keeps Getting Better

Stella did even better today than she dd yesterday, earning herself a 2nd place! She actually beat someone today! That's HUGE!!!!! And TIno didn't surf the floor at all. A small pause on the table but other than that, today was the best for both of them for the...

Look at Her Now!

Stella went home with Darius yesterday and she came back today all gussied up, that's for sure! Look at her! She looks amazing! And she showed amazing too. Totally focused on and free baited from him, she didn't pause a bit on the down and back to the judge! OMG!!!...

Change Is Good

We're back in Lakeland how one of my favorite show circuits of the year. Being in the hangers at the airport can be amazing or downright miserable. It all depends on the weather! This will make for Tino's first official somewhat indoor show. It will be interesting to...

Find Blue

Ever since Blue was the puppy she has seeked out blankets to hide and sleep under. No matter what time of the day you must always lift up blankets on the couch to make sure when you sit down you are sitting on Blue. She's getting up there in age now, turning 9 in May....

Oops Checked Out Perfectly!

Oops had his first car ride and of course that check today and I can tell you that he was given a perfect bill of health! Also he didn't get car sick. That's always good. Tino came along as his travel buddy and also to get his rabies vaccine.  Yes I'm a little behind...

Give It A Go

When Tracy contacted me saying she and her family were looking to add another Figgy Chihuahua to their pack, I immediately thought of Barbie! She so deserves a forever lap and forever family to spoil her rotten. She's been such an amazing mom and amazing dog for us...

These Two

I don't know what it is about Georgie and TIno but I have never seen two male Chihuahua get along any better than these two. They honestly are best friends! I genuinely feel guilty leaving Georgie at home when I take Tino to shows because you can see his little heart...

Cuddle Balls

Back when I bought these organizers to use as dog beds never did I realize they would bring such adorable entertainment to me and my family. I don't know what it is about them but our Chihuahuas have the tendency to cram into them as many as possible to create cuddle...

Proud of My Little Ones

I am so exceptionally proud of both Stella and Tino! They were real troopers with all of the odd Florida weather, all while taking on anxiety from being in the dog show ring. Even though Tino started out been scared by his first judge, by today he actually walked...

Coldest Yet

Even though we had more sun today than yesterday, boy was it cold today! Stella was so much better with Alexis yesterday so she stayed on her today. The results we're quite obvious. Stella shows much better for Alexis than for me. And that's perfectly fine. They both...

Day Two Was Better

I don't know if it was the blistering cold weather for the change in handlers but both Tino and Stella did amazing today. Tails up the entire time,  focused and quite calm with the judge. Of course she had very gentle hands which was helpful. Yesterday's judge was...

Tino’s Debut!

When Alexis asked if she could be the first one to take Tino into the dog show ring I was tickled pink! It was such a monumental day and for her to wish to be the one on the lead means her confidence has definitely increased. I am so proud! The pride continued when I...

Big Boy Bath Time

Tomorrow is Mr. Tino's big dog show debut. We have been taking him to shows to expose him to the sights, sounds and smells of an all-breed dog show for the last couple months, but today he received his very first showroom. That of course includes a bath with...

Little Big Man

We came home last weekend from Brooksville to a family emergency, so Alexis and I had to travel up north for the week. We came home today and found the results of my husband's amazing work socialization with Oops. We brought him and his mom downstairs right before we...

Ok So Today Was Even Better

Stella actually walked up to the judge today! Like within a couple feet of the judge. Totally amazing! So very proud of this girl. She's come such a long way. I know we have a long way to go but I'm so proud of how far she's come. She's worth every second of the work...

Best Day Yet

Even though today was pretty much the same results all of those before, today Stella showed a lot more confidence in the ring! I have found being the only entry in her class has been a plus - it's forced her to be more confidence but also given her a chance to go back...

More of the Same

What's filled with more of the same. Still no improvement with Stella but again I'll take socialization and experience over anything. The judges have been very patient and kind to her so what more could I ask for? Alexis and Margie look fabulous together but nothing...

Stella in Brooksville

Stella is the only Open Bitch entered, so I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing that she is the only dog in the ring. I'm thinking if there was someone else there she might be more comfortable walking around the ring? I'm not sure. Not much change since...
