Finished off the experience with dinner outside.

 

Kizzy Picked Up More Points

Kizzy has been out with a handling team and has picked up three more points towards her AKC championship.  She is now “singled out” – she has 12 of her 15 needed points and just needs a 3-point major to finish her championship.

Don’t know what that dog show jargon means, but curious? Check out AKC’s Beginners’ Guide To Dog Shows and/or Counting Points at a Dog Show.

Here she is with Gwen Meyer, winning two points (June 2013):

Some new pics

Feeling guilty about forgetting my camera to the commercial filming, so snapped a couple pics of Kizzy today:

Wilson – new pictures

I’ve been so delinquent on getting photos on here lately!

Wilson came to stay with us for a few days, while his big sister, Greta, had TPLO surgery.

Wilson is now 10 months old and bigger than Kizzy!

Sad News

With tears in my eyes, I’m sharing that today we lost our Skyy – Ch Payaso Flighty Star Alliance RN CGC CHIC – to pyometra.  We had discovered a large hemangiosarcoma on her spleen in April, so I’m thankful for the great last six months we’ve had with her.  She was such a sweet, happy girl.  She was loved.  RIP, Sweetheart.  1/6/04-10/4/11

Kizzy wins another point

Kizzy picked up another point towards her AKC championship yesterday at the Heart of IA dog show.  She was Reserve Winners today.

She now has nine points towards her championship, including one of her majors.  Six points to go!
