2012 Wrap Up

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.
  ~~~~ WOOF ~~~~
 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.

 ~~~~ WOOF ~~~~
Some of  Rush's other kids have been busy too.

Sara has 11 points and one major in limited showing.

Ollie is major pointed.

Bridget has five points and one major.

Owen was BOB/WD his first weekend out for his first major.

Honey Badger won back to back W/D his first weekend out and has four points.

Brady has five points and one 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 year in 2013!!!

Looking Ahead....

Lately, I have been playing on Facebook too much and neglecting my blog.  I thought I would post an update on two nice litters that Rush recently had.  Here are a few photos of his lovely ladies.

 Rush was bred to Cohnwee Blue My Mind.
On Nov. 25, she had five beautiful babies
(two boys and three girls).


 ~~~~ WOOF ~~~~
 Rush was also bred to CH Twinroc Buckaroo Bramble PT.
On Oct. 22, she had six beautiful babies
(three boys and three girls).

I am very excited about both of these litters and am looking forward to watching these pretty babies grow. :)

Apple Blossom Cluster

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 three times, Alley won three 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

The Second Year

I just found a bird's nest. It is in the exact spot that I found one last year at this time. I still find it fascinating to see the black and white dog hairs that the mother used to build her nest. I know she found those scattered in my backyard. :)

Here is the post for the first time the birds nested in that spot:

An Unexpected Surprise

Today, I came home to find this medallion in my mailbox. It is for Rush completing his Bronze GCH. I did not know the AKC sent out an award for that. What a nice surprise. :)

A Lesson Learned

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 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. Notice how they won't look at me? Can you say "Squirrel?!?" LOL
