Here is our friend, Amy, with Oliver, who just earned his Utility title (UD) on Saturday, December 10th!!! Mom and I are so proud of this team. Amy, Mom and I went to the Shoreline show in Costa Mesa on Friday, and Oliver attempted to get his title there, but made a mistake so didn't qualify. Bebe, Gidget and Electra also went and strutted their stuff in the breed rings, Bebe was Reserve. which was fun. Amy and Oliver headed to Woodley Park on Saturday for the Hollywood Obedience Club trial and after earning his Open FAST title in agility, they had a successful turn in the Utility A class. And he earned first place in the class as well. Kudos to both Amy and Oliver for all the hard work it takes to earn a Utility Dog title!!!!!
I just got an email from Roberta who has three Rincon Cardis, Chloe has earned her AKC therapy dog title, another wonderful achievement!

Show Update

Mom and I went to dog shows this weekend in the City of Industry. San Gabriel Valley KC and Antelope Valley KC held their shows at the Industry Hills Equestrian Center. Amy joined us, with Oliver and Gidget. (you should have seen the car packed with 4 dogs and 3 people and all that is needed for two days of dog shows and a night in a La Quinta.) Decker was Best of Breed on Saturday and got the Select ribbon on Sunday, so she is a bit closer to her Grand Championship. Electra and Gidget both showed well, and Oliver had two almost successful attempts at his third leg of his Utility title.

Charlie/Brady Photo Op!

Here are the girls who came from Florida. Top to bottom, Electra, Piper, Connie and Belle. Electra will be staying here at Rincon, Piper is now living in Thousand Oaks, and may be seen in the show ring, which is fun. She has chickens and cats and a horse to get to know for now. Belle and Connie will be going to their new homes in Thousand Oaks and Pasadena later this week. We journeyed down to Long Beach yesterday, to go the the LBKC show and also to sort puppies. My extremely knowledgeable buddy, Barb helped me to sort the puppies, going over structure with each one. We had quite an audience of other Pembroke and Cardigan folks, and it made for a very fun afternoon. And to top it off, Bebe got another point towards her championship!

Pix of the Florida Girls

Here are the two Florida girls, who arrived in CA on Tuesday. Piper (side shot) and Electra are settling in, and they got to go up to Cate School on Sunday for fun on the soccer field. Their half sis Gidget, and half brother Oliver joined them which was fun.

Saturday Fun.

Here's a pic taken by Lissa, our obedience instructor, at Darcy's obedience class on Saturday. He really enjoys it. I also took Bebe for a class, her first. She was trying very hard to figure out what I wanted her to do, I could see the wheels turning in her head!

The Puppies Are Coming!

Two of Charlie's puppies are coming to CA on Tuesday. They'll be 11 weeks old. I'll decide which one to keep and then place the other one.
Can't wait to see them both, they look very cute from the pix that Anne sent.

A Big Win for Bebe!

Here is Bebe, (Rincon Beach Blanket Bingo) who won on Sunday in Pomona. She was Winners, Best of Winners and Best Opposite, for a 4 pt. major. She now has both her majors and needs only 6 singles to finish. Yay, Bebe. Our judge on Sunday is a Cardigan breeder, Deborah Anthony, so a nice win indeed.

Florida Puppy update

Just got an email from Anne, in FL. The Charlie puppies are doing very well, they've all doubled their birth weights and then some. Charlie is being a very good mom, and that's a great thing.

Florida Puppies Are Here!

Charlie (Rincon Channel Isles Charlotte) had her puppies on Tuesday. She had 5 girls and 1 boy. Charlie was bred to Brady (Ch. Pinemeade Shine On RN) who is a tri, but all the puppies are red/white. I can't wait to see them in person. Brady is also Gidget's dad. Anne reports that all the puppies are gaining steadily and that Charlie is doing well, too.
Good job, Charlie!

Bakersfield Adventure

Mom and I (and our friend Kathy) took Bebe to the Kern Co. KC show on Sat. We also took Gidget (Highgrove Surf's Up at Rincon) along so she could participate in the match that evening. Kathy brought Speck (a 4 mos. old Parson puppy) and Wyatt, her 6 year old Parson boy. Bebe got our day off to a great start, going Best of Breed from the puppy class, which earned her a 3 pt major. We were thrilled to say the least. She showed very well in the group, and we were all very proud of her. Kathy showed Speck and I showed Gidget in the match, and they both showed well. Gidget couldn't understand why she wasn't allowed to stop and eat all the goodies that were on the floor, but she charmed everyone who saw her. I'll post Bebe's win pic when I get it, should be late this week.

Snow Much Fun!

The top two pix were taken Saturday afternoon (Feb. 26) on our way home from Wildomar. This was on the 210 fwy just west of Pasadena. Traffic slowed and we all slogged thru the snowy slush. We also hit snow on the 118 fwy east of Simi Valley. Not the usual, that's for sure. The bottom pic was taken from our front yard on Sunday morning (Feb. 20th). It didn't last long but was very pretty early in the morning.

Puppy Pix

Here are the pix we took at Barb's on Saturday. Riley is on the top, Gidget on the bottom. They were 8 weeks on Wed. pix were taken on Saturday.

Puppy Pix!

Here are 4 pix I took yesterday. First is Riley, who will be going to his new home in 3 weeks! Next is Riley and Gidget, then Gidget in the next two pix, enjoying her rat toy. They are getting very cute. We go to the eye doc tomorrow for their CERF exams. All went well at their well puppy check-up last week.

Happy Birthday, Meg and RJ!

Meg and RJ are two years old today. Where does the time go!

Sunday Morning

Not much to post about here. We took the Pepper pups to the vet on Wed. for their well puppy check-ups, all was well, so that's a good thing. Next hurdle is their eye exams, which we'll do in a week and a half. I gave them their first vaccine on Friday, no reaction to that. Their mum, Pepper, went back to Barb's on Thursday, and will hopefully be off to her new home next week. She's certainly a contender for best dog mom ever! Such a good mom. Decker's in season so the boys are going crazy. Yesterday we took Meg and RJ for a walk along the boardwalk in Ventura, which is very pretty. Kathy O. and Wyatt joined us as Violet's in season at her house. Poor boys!
It's another nice day today, but it's supposed to rain early this week, we'll see.
The hills are so green and lush, and I'm hoping that soon there will be some wildflowers to see.

Cutie Pies!

Here are the Pepper puppies. They have their eyes open and are beginning to hear as well. They are also getting much more mobile, in other words, they get cuter each day.

Pepper/Brady puppies

Here are the puppies at two weeks (Jan. 12th)
No eyes open yet, but it should be soon.
Pepper is such a great mom. The girl has a bit of white on her nose.
