Contact redirect has been down

I had not heard a peep off my website and thought it was too quiet.  Well it was, I found about 20 emails that never got sent to me.  I responded to as many as I could but feel so bad.  I pride myself on returning calls and emails and there are a bunch of people out there who probably think I suck.

The Stinger x Diamond puppies are starting to leave the nest.  One left earlier this week.  Three are leaving Sunday (all locals) and then the travelers who are going to other states will leave in a few weeks.  Everyone passed their CERF exams so they are all good to go.

We have one boy left but I did not really advertise until this week.  I wanted to get through all of the evaluations first so now we are looking for his home.  He is so stinking cute and very laid back.  I am sure he will find his family quickly!

Memphis WINS

Everyone that knows me knows I absolutely HATE going reserve.  Reserve gets you no points, it does get you a flat ribbon and a hefty bill.  Day One of the Greenville cluster Memphis went Reserve to a 5 point major (the highest amount of points a class dog can get).  I was grumbly and sulking (okay I am still a good sport but I HATE RESERVE)

Today he was Winner's Dog for a 5 point major!  And now he has both majors and needs one point.  He and Lenny really get along - I think because Memphis wants to be a GSD.  Of course Stinger decided to dump his coat so he looks like he is about 12 months old and we have 11 specials so not much hope there BUT he is showing really well.

We are all having such a great time - we all get along down here which is GREAT.  It is so fun to hang out with people that enjoy your breed.

And then there is the SHOW - 2,000 dogs including the #1 and #2 dogs in the country!  I love them both but am in LOVE with Swagger the Old ENglish Sheepdog and have proclaimed him my boyfriend! 

He won Best in Show today and afterwards I was in the parking lot and who should amble by but the #1 dog Matisse!  I called his name and his eyes lit up and he was such a cuddler.  I actually teared up because I am living a blessed life being surrounded by friends and also these wonderful dogs.

I wish everyone could experience it.

Our New addition

I have been on pins and needles until it was official and now it is - CH Mysharas Ticket To A Celebration is moving to Calabrone!  I have loved her since she was a puppy and now she is joining the pack!  I will be co-owning her with Sharon Fontanini of Myshara Aussies. 

She is such a lovely girl inside and out, a pedigree to die for and sound, strong and the sweetest girl on the planet.  We have big plans for her, a herding title, finishing her Grand Championship and maybe some Rally.  I just booked her flight and cannot wait until I have her all to ME.

New Pup Photo Gallery is up

The Stinger x Diamond litter gallery is now up.  We have pretty much all of the puppy's reserved but two a black tri male and a red tri female we have interest in both and hope to have the litter sold OUT.  Best of all we have a great group of owners and that is the best part.

Show Those Pearly Whites

Took the boys to the vet for their annual bloodwor and decided to have my vet officially check their teeth and submit with OFA their Dentition.  I already knew they were not missing teeth and so it was not a surprise that they had all their teeth.

We filled out the forms and it only cost $15 per dog so now there is no way for anyway to not be assured that they have all of their teeth.  In the Aussie breed standard it calls for a full mouth of teeth - yes there are dogs missing teeth and so it is a fault but honestly there are bigger issues.

I think most breeders should do the test - any vet can fill it out and it is $15.  if you cannot afford it, then you should not be breeding.  This is a new test so hopefully more will do it.

And by the way their physical examinations were great - and the boys enjoyed getting loved on by everybody in the office.
