Seems like all I do is catch up lately…
We had a great time at the 2014 CWCCA Nationals. The only ribbons we brought home this year were from the photo contest, but then again, the only dog I took was 11 month old Gable, who looks very much like a gawky 11 month old right now. And he was in 2 of the biggest dog classes. His brother Jake did well, making the cut in both sweeps and his regular class. It was a grand adventure for Gable, he took flying in stride, and enjoyed the trip. We actually drove home, which was another adventure, and brought a cute baby girl back with us 😉
Not half bad for a hairless, gangly teenage boy Cardi 🙂
We brought back baby Flutter with us. Flutter is from the now infamous Dickens/Lowri litter that had an amazing debut at the National, at 6 months and a minute old…
I just got home last week, and have been catching up on things around the house…but I took Camille in for her BAER test yesterday. While I was pretty certain she hears just fine, since she is a white headed dog, and because she “pretends” to not hear quite often, I figured it cant hurt anything to get her tested! She, of course, came back with perfect hearing in both ears. She no longer has an excuse for being naughty 😉
And speaking of testing, I sent Gables DNA tests off before we left for Nationals, and got the results emailed to me while I was gone. We tested him for DM (although we knew he was line clear), Pink, Fluff, and we wanted to see if he carried Black (both his sire and dam do, but since the entire litter was brindle, there was a 50/50 chance that the boys would carry or would not carry for black). He came back as DM Clear (as expected) but a carrier for Fluff, Pink, and Black. *sigh* But not the end of the world 🙂 Fluffy puppies are pretty dang cute 😉 Wish he would have been clear for pink, but oh well. And we are sort of excited he carries for Black. Which means if bred to a black girl, there should be black puppies. And if bred to a brindle girl who carries black, there could be black puppies as well. (although, you know, much like Nash and Lexi, that isnt always the case! LOL)
I think thats all thats going on here…lots of getting ready for summer and dirty muddy dogs and no more snow and waiting for summer shows to come around 🙂 Will try to get better about keeping things updated on here….but I cant promise anything 😉
Well, not really, since he was born here….
But *Officially* introducing Gable. Who will be formally known as Allegro Grandiose Frankly My Dear.
Gable is our keeper puppy from the Nash x Lexi litter, who will all be named with “Gone With The Wind” themed registered names. Gable is a handsome little guy who had our eye for a few weeks before the official 8 week puppy evaluations. Super happy fun puppy with quite the naughty streak 😉 Hes been a lot of fun so far, and had a couple of big adventures, including to the dog shows this past weekend where he tended to be a traffic stopper with his corgi puppy cuteness and “Oh hey you, come pet me” attitude.
Let me tell you, there is little that is cuter than a puppy. And Cardi puppies are probably near the top of the “cutest puppies EVER” list….and if they are this cute now, lord help me when they are a few weeks older!!
They should be color coded, and as they get bigger, I am working hard to try to keep someone from taking their collars off of them! Much easier to tell who is who in photos when they are wearing their collars!!
