The last two months have been crazy. Starting with the birth of Kira and Marckus’s litter of 10 beautiful puppies. Then off to Germany for the Bundessiegerzuchtschau (BSZS) in Aachen. Upon returning from Germany finding out my husband needed emergency surgery. Somewhere in here Nick and I decide we will show Maika for the first time in the Working Female Class in Chicago. Maika had only just returned from Germany and had not been in the show ring in over a year. So Nick took Maika home and started running with her and practicing off-lead gaiting. Becky and Joe made a smart decision to also enter the Chicago show to get a little ring experience on Schumi before the North American Sieger Show. Somehow we managed to squeeze in some ring practice. Then off to Chicago. Then the next weekend is our CPE Agility Trial at Taking the Lead Dog Training. The following weekend we are off to Kentucky to breed Funny (Faye vom Kirschental), days later I leave for Florence Kentucky to attend the WUSV competition, also called the “Worlds.” I am back two days and off to Lexington Kentucky for the North American Sieger Show. Returned on a Monday and left for New Orleans. For two months I was never home for more then a week.
A huge thank you to Tiffany and many wonderful friends that helped with everything—-from puppy care, socializing, helping with vet visits, taking over my puppy classes, feeding and exercising dogs, and on and on. I did not even have to ask for help as you all were right there ready to help out. I am very blessed to have you in my life. From the bottom of my heart thank you!
I am not forgetting you Michelle, all of your offers to help are so appreciated… I promise I will be taking you up on this someday!
Thank you to the puppy buyers from the last litter for being so patient and understanding.
My sincerest apologizes to all the puppy buyers that wanted a puppy from this litter and didn’t get one. You have my gratitude for your faith in me, your loyality, and your willingness to stick with me and wait for another litter.
This was a tough litter to sort out, some girls that were long coats or were they not long coats, and three drop-dead gorgeous males—such a problem! 🙂 Thank you for understanding that well-bred puppies are not commodities you pull off the shelf.
