It has been a good year for Regent Cardigans. Rush completed his Bronze Grand Championship and won some nice Best of Breeds and Group Placements during the process.
Not to be out done by their father, his daughters have been catching their share of attention:
Alley easily completed her Grand Championship. Her next adventure will be into the performance ring.
Caity completed her Championship the same weekend as Alley! She has a lovely black husband lined up for her in 2013.
Some of Rush's other kids have been busy too.
Sara has 11 points and 1 major in limited showing.
Ollie is major pointed.
Bridget has 5 points and 1 major.
Owen was BOB/WD his first weekend out for his 1st major.
Honey Badger won back to back W/D his first weekend out and has 4 points.
Braith has 5 ponts and 1 major.
Congratulations to all of the Rush kids on their many successes. We are very proud of them. Thank you to all the owners for loving them and doing such a wonderful job of training and handling them in the show ring. We are looking forward to an exciting 2013!!!
I decided to combine a family visit with a dog show and headed to Michigan over the weekend. I had a great time with the dogs. Rush was BOB 3 times, Alley won 3 GCH majors and Caity picked up both of her majors.
My in-laws had never been to a dog show before, so they got a large dose of it. When all was said and done, one of their favorite dogs from the weekend was this pink poodle! What you can't see in the photo is that on the other side of the dog, there was a large pink heart on it's thigh. LOL
I just found a bird's nest. It is in the exact spot that I found one last year at this time. Again, I still find it fascinating to see the black and white dog hairs that the mother used to build her nest.
A simple bone. Innocent looking enough, right? I have been buying my dogs these bones from my grocery store for years. They love them. The bones come in sleeves and are filled with marrow.
But look what happened today. Caity managed to get one stuck on her jaw. It was lodged behind her teeth. We spent a good portion of the day trying to get it off without breaking any teeth or her jaw.
I am happy to report that finally at the end of the day, we were successful at removing it. I have since thrown away every single one of them that I am finding in the house or yard. And I will never buy that kind again.
I just returned home from the Mississippi shows. Wow, we had a great time! On Saturday, Rush took a Herding Group 2 under Judge Don Rogers. Then on Sunday, I am pleased to say that Rush went BOB to finish his Bronze Grand Championship.
Here is my crew hanging out at the show waiting for our ring time.
