Enjoying Life's Moments Responsibly

Junior Change-Up

Back into the swing of things after the holidays is always tough. Doing it on a two week long show circuit in Brooksville? Quite the way to start the new year that's for sure! Alexis is staying at the show site with Renée this week and I am driving back and forth...

But This Is Really Cool

When you pick up your favorite dog show magazine and see one of your dearest friends has an ad with the photographs you took of her, the feeling is amazing! Renée you're so awesome! Thank you - You made me famous!    ...

Not How We Planned to Start 2017

I knew something wasn't right yesterday just by the look in Barbie's face. Her eyes were trying to tell me from the moment that she woke up. I took her to the local vet with concerns of a high temperature and the lack of color in her face. Pyometria was my first...

Social Media & Selfie Star

So, when you have family guests staying with you at the same time that you have adorable Chihuahua puppies in the house this is pretty much what always happens. Especially when the guests are in their 20's or younger. Your puppies become social media and selfie the...

So It Was Cold To Us

I realize to the rest of the world, temps down into the 40's is NOT cold but to us in Florida it is! Now fire in the fireplace hot? Not really! But the year is almost over and my husband insisted on getting at least one fire in! Tonight was the night. Dewey didn't...

Lead Training

At five months of age, I really should have started Tino's lead training a LOT earlier but honesty, he was very easy to lead break. Actually, there was no "breaking" required! He just started to walk! Now is it pretty? Not in any way! He's a puppy with the attention...

Costume Closet

After last year's costume extravaganza, I added new threads to the costume closet (or should I say storage bin) and I use say, the additions were well worth it! Shopping in the Small Animal section at PetSmart was the way to go for sure - they fit our tinies...

Christmas Tradition

Every year the dog's toy selection changes because Santa brings them a new slew of treasures! Of course, Breezy LOVED the toys - She searched out those with squeakers almost instantly! The Chihuahuas were not as interested but Boom Boom loved the gift opening!...

What A Wonderful Visit

Tiny wasn't the only one who truly enjoyed the girls staying with the last couple of days. It was so  amazing to have the chance to see them again and watch their growth Them are maturing into two very sweet Chihuahuas - loved and adored by a wonderful family! They...

That’s Right! There’s A Whippet!

Sadie and Sloane (aka Rio and Simone) came to stay with us for a couple of days and I honesty I think they forgot we had such a "big" dog here. When the girls still lived here, they were a bit too small to run the yard with Breezy. Now that they are bigger, playing...

Her Final Litter

It's official! Little Tino alerted us to the fact that Barbie followed suit with Stella and KC, going into season soon after they did. And today, Georgie made it officially her last breeding. A breeding I am so eager to see as we will have since it will follow a line...

Well On His Way

At two weeks old, Oops was well into walking all over the whelping box, had seen the world around his with blurry vision since he was 9 days old and has confirmed the fact that he is indeed a lush coated long coat like his grandfather Eddie! This bundle of joy is...

So He’s A Pistol!

Now that the Championships are over we are home and relaxing after the six straight days of dog shows. Well, trying to relax. Boom Boom Junior is quite the active handful . He is a puppy after all but the Chihuahuas (and Whippet) in our house are not accustomed to...

Another Fantastic Meet The Breed

This is been weekend of the year, I am not excited to share that the scene have Barbara created for us to use at the Meet the Breed booth at the AKC National Championships not only was amazingly fun to work again, it clearly was fun for those that visited as well....

It Was Pretty Darn Cool!

Today is the Specialty day up here at the after three straight days of all breed hows it's nice to have a slower pace today. It was also nice to be reminded how great friends make life so much sweeter. First, Jane and Paul's came down to Florida to spend some time at...

Final Day of Prepping

With tomorrow being our Specialty, today was my last day to get Stella accustomed to the sites sounds and smells of the Convention Center. Success! She actually walked around the building with me, Tail up the entire time! Can not tell you how excited I am! I even had...

Two In Tow… and ThenThree!

I headed back out to the Convention Center for the day and this time I brought both KC and Stella. Like I mentioned yesterday, I thought it best to bring the two girls that are in season with me so that the boys are not left home to experience a hormonal frenzy. Of...

Let The Games Begin!

For the sixth year in a row, we have headed out to the Orange County Convention Center for the annual AKC National Championships. In addition to Alexis working the full week for the first time, our biggest adjustment has been not calling it Eukanuba. This year it is...

Oops is One Week Old

and almost a pound! Yes! You read that right! But then again this is not that uncommon for singletons. They have no one to compete with for food so eating is their main and only hobby. Oops is actually pretty active too. Past singletons have been sluggish and large....

She Really Has Learned A Lot

Holy Guacamole! Alexis really has learned a lot since the last time that she groomed Ginny! She needed guidance and help in trimming her  but this time, it was only a couple of pointers and voila! A beautiful trimmed Ginny! Kristie helped her with the tail and a bit...
