A Fine Day.

Had a fun day in Lompoc today at the Lompoc KC show. Meg and RJ both were Winners for a point each. This gives RJ 14 points, one more to go and he's a Champion!
Meg's coat is coming back in, she looked quite nice. Darcy and RJ are entered tomorrow.
Bebe went with us and I think she had no fewer than a hundred people taking her picture, including the Lompoc Record newspaper. She's quite the model!
Our friend Lissa's Parson boy Shiner, was Best of Winners for a 4 point major, so he's well on his way towards his Championship as well.
Fingers crossed that Kathy and Debra's Bella will get the nod tomorrow.
And, on Friday, the kink tail boy went to his new home, he now resides in Long Beach.

15 weeks and counting!

Katie helped me get some pictures done this morning. Hard to believe they are 15 weeks old already. First is the red/white boy, then the red/white boy with the kink at the end of his tail. Next is Mighty Mite, she didn't want to stand still as you can see, the others were running around below her. And finally, Bebe, who was also trying to get off the table and join in the fun.

Muddy Puppies!

Bebe and her siblings decided to combine some dirt and the water in their water dish today and make mud pies. Later she had her first bath! Bebe is on the left, one of the boys is on the right.

Took some pix.

Here are a few pix I took today, the red/white boy, the bigger red/white boy and Gryffin, their great Grandpa, who was staring intently at the place I put a puppy toy to keep him from tearing it up. Warm day today, first day we've had sunshine all day long in some time. I took Mr. Darcy to obedience class last night, and he had fun. Maybe we'll tackle rally at some fall shows.

A Very Good Weekend!

We spent the last three days at the shows in Ventura. Friday I showed RJ, and he went Reserve to the major, so, close but no cigar!
Saturday he did get the win, four points, which is very cool. He showed well, and had fun, which is also a good thing. On Sunday, RJ won again, one point this time, as several dogs weren't entered or weren't there, but a point is a point!
Now just two more and he'll be an AKC Champion!!
Meg just needs to grow her coat back and she'll be back in contention, looking for her last 6 points.
Next shows will be in Lompoc at the end of the month, and then the Santa Barbara shows in late August. Let's hope it's not as hot this year at the SB shows as it was last year! June gloom is great dog show weather.
The puppies are getting bigger and bigger and cuter and cuter. The brindle boys are all settling in well in their new homes, with new names of Opie, Bosko and Petey.
I'm still working on a name for my red/white girl, Beebee is a possible (she'd be Rincon Beach Blanket Bingo).
I'll take some pics later today.
