Maui Ch/BIS Al-UCh Kingscroft As Good As It Gets 10/1/2002 – 3/4/2014 Our first Pointer. The best Pointer. The Queen of Grandiose. Forever loved, forever missed.
It’s been a long year. And it’s not over yet. Earlier this summer, we were informed that our final move had to be completed within one year of Brian’s retirement date (January). After lots and lots of discussion and debates and trying to figure out what was right and best….we decided to move back homeContinue reading “The paths life takes us on….”
Our beautiful Maui (Ch Kingscroft As Good As It Gets) showing at the American Pointer Club 75th Anniversary National Specialty in PA last month… Maui will turn 11 years old this year, and still absolutely loves being able to get out in the show ring and strut her stuff!! I couldnt love thisContinue reading “Maui at APC Nationals, 2013”
Old girls just have more fun….or at least get more bed time and cookies.
Time flies when you are busy beyond belief!! We’ve been having a great month, going to far too many dog shows…and the babies have been doing us proud this year.

Some days its finishing a dog, winning a major, or placing in the group. And some days, its walking away with the whole kit n kaboodle.Continue reading “A Good Day…”
We survived another year at the Denver shows….And we had a pretty good time doing it! We took 3 Corgis, plus I had a Special to show all 4 days as well. Rango was our 6-9 puppy boy, and out of the 4 days, he walked away with 2 Reserve Winners Dog awards, and 1Continue reading “Denver Wrap-Up…”
So, I decided Friday morning when I woke up that I wanted to go to the UKC show at least for the Friday show…so I quickly bathed Maui, grabbed her registration info, loaded up the stuff we needed for the day in the van, and headed off. We got there, and registered, and talked withContinue reading “Great Days at the shows….”
One thing I have started to really enjoy, especially with Brian home again, is to just sit in the chair in the living room in the mornings with a cup of coffee, and watch the dogs play or whatever it is they decide to do, and enjoy the SILENCE. (Well, silence for the most part,Continue reading “Sunshine Makes Me Happy….”
