Time flies when you are having fun

"A breeders lap is a marvelous space where proud and noble champions once snoozed"

Wow it has been such a busy few months I didn't realize how long it's been since I posted anything. SO much has happened around here since our last post I don't even know where to begin. Kiwi welcomed her first, and much anticipated, litter on February 3rd of 4 sweet little girls and then her niece Loki whelped a litter of 5 robust boys 4 days later on February 7th. Both litters were sired by our stud dog Woofgang Stash and I am so beyond impressed by his first efforts for us. We kept one little girl from Kiwi's litter, a female we have name Covet or Coy for short, who we are pretty excited about and we have retained a co-ownership on her littermate Promise ("Mia") who has gone to live with a good friend in Colorado.

Several of the puppies from both litters have gone to sporting homes and we often get to see them at flyball tournaments and follow their progress on facebook.

In other news we traveled all the way to Virginia in April to escape the cold and kick off our trial season. All the dogs did very well with Cali and her daughter Snookie (owned by Denise DeCosta) taking first and second in the ultra-competitive rough/broken under girls class. Warden won his class both days to close out his puppy year and Stash was right on winning Reserve Working Dog to National Champion Little Eden Dempsey on Saturday and then turning the tables on Sunday and beating him to take the title of Best Working Dog.

As you can see it has been a busy spring and I haven't even gotten to our recent trip to Colorado and our little May "surprise" but best to leave me some incentive to write again soon!
