Our last Pointer litter was born in 2015. They will be the last Pointers born at Grandiose and when our last one passes on, so ends Grandiose Pointers. Shortly after that litter was born, we tragically lost the sire to that litter who was one of the sweetest Pointers I’ve ever had the pleasure ofContinue reading “Don’t Know Why I Bother With Some People.”

Wrapping up our year…
I am always dreadfully behind in blog posts and sometimes dont know why I bother trying to keep up with them (seriously – follow our facebook page, that is far more current than the blog!) But here goes…. Gizmo finished her PT in September, and earned her first AKC Started leg as well. HerContinue reading “Wrapping up our year…”
What a year its been…
I’ve been so remiss in updating the blog in any fashion. Although I have been keeping up pretty well with the website itself. Its just so much easier to post directly to our facebook page and I feel that reaches more people anyway. (If you arent following us there, you can find it at https://www.facebook.com/GrandioseCardiganWelshCorgis/) SoContinue reading “What a year its been…”
A Ratting We Shall Go….
We started Barn Hunt this year. Its silly, its fun, its addicting. Your dog hunts through bales of straw to find rats hidden in tubes. The Cardis LOVE IT. Gizmo has been the first to explore it with us. Shes been to a handful of classes since January, and went to her first trial recently.Continue reading “A Ratting We Shall Go….”
The eyes have it….
….Or at least are tested clear of any defects or abnormalities 😉 We took Gable in for his OFA eye exam two weeks ago and, as expected, he passed with flying colors. We also sent off for his PRA test to be done officially. While we know he is line clear, having it officially recordedContinue reading “The eyes have it….”
Soleil (from our 2015 Pointer litter – Locke x Puzzle) was awarded Best In Show Puppy (4-6 month) in November. Such a pretty girl, we are excited for her future with co-owner June Dennis in California!
One point at a time…
We will get there. At the beginning of the month, we went to our local shows. This one is odd, since there is a Herding Group Specialty on Friday, and an all breed on Sunday. So we went sheep herding on Saturday. But I digress…. I had Gable and Gizmo entered, Gizmo is looking forContinue reading “One point at a time…”
Dog (show) tip of the week…
I always hate cords. They are obnoxious and always tangled and in the way and catching on things or caught in lids you are trying to close. I was pretty happy with how things changed when I added these to my equipment… Cable Cuffs. They have all sorts of these things in varying sizesContinue reading “Dog (show) tip of the week…”
Dog Tip of the Week…
Lets see how long I can keep this up 😉 Lots of little ideas and tidbits and gadgets that make life with dogs (or dog showing! or dog events) just a little easier. Going to try to share them here weekly until I run out of ideas. This week, I shared something on facebook andContinue reading “Dog Tip of the Week…”
Flutter and Tipsy got to go out to our local herding facility and be instinct tested. They both had a great time! Flutter will begin classes over the winter, and Tipsy will go to class randomly as she grows (shes still a bit young to go to class all the time)
