Dolly very pregnant and Christmas tree!

Here is our Christmas tree this year! Thanks to my parents for letting us borrow the big (fake) tree.

Dolly is pretty miserable. Her official due date is Thursday. She is HUGE! We moved her to my house today and her whelping box is all ready for puppies to come.

A bit better view to see how wide she is. Here is praying for a safe arrival!!

Page's New CH picture (a bit delayed)

Here is CH Page. Thanks Dani for sending the picture along.

Not the best baker... these are supposed to be choc. chip cupcakes. They look like weird alien food. I guess I shouldn't cook, I always seem to mess things up. Although it is extremely hard to figure out a good gluten free eggless recipe. UGH!

The "And then...and then...and then" weekend!

I think you will get the title after I explain. This is one weekend we will not repeat in a long time. First off, thank you thank you and thanks again to all those Cardigan people who cheered Secret on in the groups! Secondly, to all my clients for having such wonderful dogs. Thirdly, to my much needed handler help this weekend, Michon, who was the best! Lastly, to my sister who just did awesome.

Drum roll please....

Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances (his potential home decided they needed to wait until my next litter)...Bamboo is available to a new home. Most of you on here are Cardigan people, but just in case I thought I would post the news on here. He is cute as can be, could be shown, but a good home is most important!

Eukanuba here we come!!! and more...

Yup, I get to go. Until about 3 days ago, I thought I wasn't going to get to go. I love Eukanuba. It is so much fun, even if you don't do much winning. The World Challenge is by far my favorite, although I do have to say that the Breed booths take a very close second. It is all about making a statement, showing off your best, and having fun while you are at it. Taking home a prize, is just an honor.

On other many of you saw on Carolyn's blog, I just brought Nola home from being bred to Pilot. Very excited about the litter! I always hit myself (well figuratively) when I see Pilot...why oh why did I not take him home at the puppy party...:-)

Was briefly at the Salem show on Saturday...showed Vogue for another BOB win. Then did the Pap fun match with Walker and Miley. Next weekend we have Monroe, praying for a warm weekend!!

Vogue enjoying the day...

First she ran around with Splash...woohoo!

Hmmm...this looks familiar.

Not in the pond!

Green slime dog...ick!! Guess a bath is in order!! Like Mother, like Daughter. Haze does the same thing at my parents the pond, rain or shine, ice or snow!
