Enjoying Life's Moments Responsibly

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...

Remaining Tinies

With Olive in her new home, we are down to only KC and Dewey for our tinies. Finding the perfect home for a tiny is never easy which is why they normally stay here with us.  I can tell you that the two will NEVER leave! They are my heart dogs! Dewey lives for me - I...

3 Week Old Chunkers

OMG are these puppies some rolly pollies!!! Millie has uber milk for sure because the fat on these guys is just too adorable! I see them taking their own sweet time getting up and being mobile. Why when their food source comes to them every hour?? I went ahead and...

He Can’t Wait!

Georgie snuck into the nursery/whelping room today and got a peek at his puppies. OMG to see his excitement was just too adorable! His little tail just went nuts!!! He whined trying to get in the whelping box with them and you could see it was taking everything in him...

I Think This Is It!

When Gail came to the house to meet Olive she also met our sweet Barbie. She saw instantly how gentle and sweet she is but knew she didn't have the space take home yet another one. She did know of a family that would love to make her a part of theirs though. A nice...

The Storm Cuddle

This summer has been exceptionally filled with afternoon thunder storms - We have seen quite a few severe storms this year! Our summer dogs (those born in the summer/spring months) are handling it fine. It's the winter dogs that are having a pretty hard time. Breezy,...

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...
