Enjoying Life's Moments Responsibly

Nell Is Our Favorite

We have a few dogs staying with us this week, all of the Chihuahua persuasion, with most eventually spending more time with us here in the future. They are all females who may eventually whelp and then raise their puppies here with me. That is at least the plan. Was...

Traveling With Dogs Tip

As I prepare for my trip to the Nationals in St. Louis Missouri, my friends shared her latest find for airline travel with dogs. The SturdiBag double sided pet carrier is the perfect solution for taking two dogs on an airplane. I am bringing Tino and possibly...

The Girls Turn

While the boys went to the vet to get their Health Certificates with their vaccines the girls received their vaccines here at home just as the entire litter did at 8 weeks of age. They are both staying here with us to be grown up and reevaluated later. Shelly and Tami...

HC Time

It's Health Certificate time for the boys in the bunch and off to Dr. Larkins for their second set of vaccines and health check today. They were all given a perfect bill of heath - of course! Was there ever a doubt? It also looks like we are diluting that nasty...

Day Two Was Fun Too

More of the same minus the Owner-Handler group placement today! Tons of laughs and tons of memories though for sure! Dolly and I are always up to something when we are together and this weekend was no exception. Hanging with Hiram again and being his little Minions is...

What A Fun Day!

When you have a dog show that is close to home, (Less than an hour) have friends in town from other States also with friends that you only get to see at shows AND your dog does well - Oh Yeah! That makes for a fabulous show day! I hope it will make a for a fabulous...

Let The Bait Training Begin

This week I started some bait training for the entire litter as well as Mommy. Well, she was bait trained back when she was a puppy but got too big to enter the ring . She never really liked showing but she really, truly loved the bait! The pups caught on rather...

Sawyer’s New Girlfriend

Margie is back with us - Thank you Rayna - And I do not know who is happier! My husband or Sawyer? Be has claimed her as all his own and is beyond happy to have something closer to his size to play with! The Chihuahuas just don't cut it! I am sure once she looses her...

Breezy’s New Adventure

So when Karen told me that Emma was in search of a new Juniors dog I immediately mentioned Breezy as a possible option. We have spent the last several months getting her into condition and building her confidence so she might just be a good choice. I was informed by a...

A Table Bit of Table Training

Kat came by to pick up mom and babies (his power was restored this morning) and he stuck around for bit to checkout our litter of Chihuahuas. He too finds our sweet smooth coat girl to be the pick of the litter AKA my show dog for 2018. It was a bitt sweet day  saying...

Just Look At Them

How could anyone NOT fallen love with a Frenchie puppy?? Now I so wish I knew Sawyer when he was a puppy! I am so in love with these puppies and they have been the perfect guests. I told Kat they can stay as longs he needs to to stay - I am having way too much fun...

We Eventually Made It Home

With the hurricane brewing in Florida and making it's way into the Gulf, we spent yesterday in Biloxi, taking in the beach, the chance to sleep in (crazy thought while at a dog show) and enjoying friends and their amazing hospitality! (Thank you Rick, Katie and...

Introducing Our New Grand Champion!

We finally did it! We earned our Grand Champion title for Mr. Tino! And with 2 extra points to spare too! Hey, I'll take it!! AllI know is that I  am beyond proud of this amazing accomplishment. At 15 months of age, this little dog has allowed me to have experiences...

Try Again Tomorrow

Today was not the day for Tino's new title but it was still a good day! It started with an early breed ring time but a low entry. We had many marked absent but with Irma out there I totally get it! Dolly had later ring times so heading back to Florida today wasn't...

So Close I Can Taste It!

Tino did it again today! He went Best of Breed and I couldn't be more proud! It was another major on his record, leaving him only needing one single point for his Grand Champion title!!! OMG I AM SO EXCITED!!! I celebrated this accomplishment with a cocktail at our...

Third Major Down

What an amazingly memory filled second day in Biloxi! And it all started in the show ring! First of all, we had some time to do some more table training this morning before our ring time. I would say that it paid off because he was calm as a cucumber on the table in...

Pointless Start

With almost half of the entries not showing up today, I should have known that a mid-week show would not bring the points. We earned a Select with no points so as my daughter says... At least you got a ribbon! I need to thank Dolly who happened to notice that I needed...

Back On The Road

I may have gotten home late last night from our trip to Raleigh but I am back on the road today - This time I am headed to Biloxi! I literally came home, did laundry, bathed and dried Mr. Tino and then drove to Dolly's this morning so that we could start our...

Major Lesson Learned

I need to listen to my mentors and friends more often. I want to believe all people are good and everyone follows the rules. But these are dogs shows! There are very political plays at hand in the ring. I wanted to believe and was proven wrong. I guess everything...

Select Kinda Day

And it's OK! We have been in a BOB roll but I am realistic - you can't always win the big prize! And it was nice to see Stella back in the ring too! She didn't get any love either but she showed her butt off! Couldn't have been more proud of both of our competitors!...
