  • The puppies of both the Rescue and Symphony litter have all went to their new homes. With it I would like to introduce ZoomZoom ( long story behind the name as was originally for my other puppy). She is the female we kept from Adzuki and Brenner. There are some other hopeful youngsters living elsewhere, Allure and Harley from the Symphony Litter, and Snapper (real name yet to be determined) from Rescue Litter. So stay tuned for update.

Adzuki started labour at 7pm or there abouts on Monday night...and well, the first one didn't arrive till 6:50am the next day...to say it was a long day was a understatement. I was suppose to groom Tuesday but cancelled my appointments so I could teach classes that night as I have three full classes of obedience lessons! It's been a long week!! Click Here to take a peek!

  • Had a great weekend at AKC dog show in Calgary. Our new import, Quel Trip Deabei, in only his second weekend out finished his Canadian Championship. Winning Best of Opposite * BP at the Belgian Booster sponsored by the Southern Alberta section of the Belgian Shepherd Dog Club of Canada. To date he has 3 BOB, 1 BOS, 4 BP, 4 WM, 3 BOW, 4 BP and 1 BPIG.
  • Wrangler was BOB on Saturday at AKC.
  • Our little, Maggie, made her debut at AKC in junior puppy class. She did really great, but was RWF all three days to her sister...but did beat the other class females. She managed to gain some self control and was able to stand still in her exam, without leaping into the judges arms to 'say hello'. To say she is social is a understatement.
