No rest for the wicked. I'd love to have slept in this AM, but too much to get done. Puppy Eddie came down from Canada with the Pellas yesterday, and today I am taking him to meet up with his forever family. Lisen & Jerry kept Eddie for me for awhile, and Lisen fell in love with him. Because Eddie was bred by Sue, Ginger, Paula, & Kim, lived with Lisen, then with the Pella family (4 kids), and now going back to Lisen, his registered name is Paisley Red Coach It Takes A Village. He is the happiest, most secure & well adjusted puppy I have ever met. Am very pleased with the way he looks & a show career is anticipated.
Lucy will go home with the Pellas when they head back to Canada on Sunday. She'll spend the summer with them, do some Canadian shows with Junior Handler Grace, and come back for our fall shows and the final 4 points towards her American championship. Lucy was such a hit at DCA, and Jess had a wonderful time showing her. Eddie "filled in" for Lucy while she was with us.
After I pass Eddie on to Lisen, I'll continue south and meet up with Rosie & Reebok. Reebok finally came in season and is coming home with me to be bred to Argus. Reebok has had an amazing career, winning the DCA Futurity in 2009 & DCA WB in 2010. Argus is a past DCA Best Of Breed winner, has 3 DCA Awards Of Merit, and sired of last years Best In Futurity (Penny). He has also won the Stud Dog Class at DCA for the past 3 years. Hopefully this litter will live up to its potential!
Still having computer issues and unable to upload pictures to my blog. I think the poor thing is bogged down with the thousands of pictures on its hard drive. HOPE that's it, as I purchased an external hard drive and will move many of the pictures over. If that doesn't help, I'll be forced to take it in and have the Geek Squad take a look. Fortunately I have the Netbook to use while the big guy is gone. This computer is 4 years old and has given me good service but I hope to get a few more years out of it!
