What a Fun Day!

Today, Mom and I went up to Cate School (private high school in Carpinteria) and played with a very cute litter of Parson Russell Terrier puppies who were 5 weeks old today. Mary Arango, who is a great photographer, took pics of the puppies (and of Meg and Gryffin, too who went along for the ride).
Here are a few of the pics that Mary took.
Gryffin is at the top (2), then the PRT pups, then Meg.
The grounds at Cate School are so pretty, and today was a gorgeous day after all the rain yesterday.

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to Rincon Oliver Twist, CD, RE, NAP, NJP, CGC!!!
Two years old today!
You've done us all proud.
Kudos to Amy, Oliver's dedicated owner, trainer, and buddy.
I wish I had access to my pictures, I'd post one of Mr. O, but alas, they are on the external hard drive, waiting until we resolve the fact that my old Mac Cube died.

Bday pics

Finally got RJ and Meg to stop racing around for a moment so I could take pics. They aren't great but at least a reminder of where they are at a year.

Mission Accomplished!

We drove down to Wildomar yesterday, and bred Decker to Roger. Now the wait begins.
When I get my computer back from the Mac shop, I'll post some pics of the two of them.

Decker update

Decker's progesterone was at 3.1
This means that if she progresses in the usual manner we'll breed her on Monday.
I'll head down to Wildomar Monday morning, stopping on the way to do another prog. test.
If need be, we can head back down again on Tuesday, but I'm confident that Monday should do it.

Rainy Day Fun

Made a trek down to Woodland Hills this morning to run a progesterone test on Decker. Now I'm waiting for the results. (progesterone numbers are used to determine ovulation, and thus day to breed for the best results)
While we were there we met a man with a Neopolitan Mastiff who is due next week, her xray today showed 13-14 puppies! Wow!
I'll post Decker's results when I get them.

We are so Proud!!

I have to report on some really fun accomplishments of some of the Rincon Corgis who don't live here. First, Oliver, had a great weekend in Ventura, earning 3 double Q's toward his RAE title, he needs 7 more for that. He also had several good tries at earning Open Obedience legs, but didn't get those. This past weekend, he earned a Novice Preferred leg and a Novice Jumpers Preferred leg to complete both of those titles. That makes him Rincon Oliver Twist, CD, RE, NAP, NJP, CGC!!!
On Sunday he earned a leg in both open and open jumpers (preferred) so he's on a roll!

Now to the Cardis. Roberta called last night to say that Penny earned her CD. While this is a grand accomplishment in and of itself, it also is a very fun news item, since she is the fourth of Nikki's kids to be titled and this will give Nikki (Ch. Spectrum Mesty Puppernickel) her ROM Bronze. The Register of Merit is awarded by the Nat'l Cardi club, and I'm very proud that Nikki's kids have earned her this award. The other titled kids are Redford, (Ch. Rincon Sundance Kid), Tina Sparkle (Rincon Strictly Ballroom PT) and Chloe, (Rincon Whale of a Tail CD, RE, AX, OAJ, NAP, NJP).
Roberta owns Chloe as well, Chloe is from Nikki's first litter. Penny, Redford and Tina Sparkle are from her second litter. I'll try and get pics up of them all at some point.
