Merry Christmas!!!

Skyla and Axl would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! This is Axl's first Christmas and he will be very happy tomorrow to have lots of snow to play in (if the weather forecast holds). The dogs got a big new dog bed to share, if some little Corgi boy decides not to pee on it and some really cool rawhide chews for tomorrow. Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday. See everyone in January when Skyla and I will be search of her last major. :)

Axl having a good time....

Skyla is going to let Axl share her blog again. Axl got to go to the fun match in Springfield Saturday and had a really good time. He just loves to show off and be a ham in the ring. His table skills need improving but he is such a happy boy that you can't help but laugh.

Skyla's Major picture

Got Skyla's winners picture from Des Moines. Considering they were in a rush to take it, it isn't half bad. Now only one more major to go...:)

Axl wants to brag....

Skyla is letting her little pal, Axl, share some space on her blog. Axl, who just turned 4 months old today, went to his very first B Match last weekend in Salina. His first time in a show ring was a success. He won Best Puppy, Best of Breed, and a Puppy Herding Group 1! He thought he was a little rock star show dog...:) He did very well in the Puppy Best in Match but was a little bored with all the waiting around. Luckily, there were alots of other puppies to play with...:) Skyla was very proud of her little buddy...:)

Skyla's Big Win...finally

Skyla and I made the trek up to the Des Moines dog show this weekend. We had to get up in the middle of the night and drive three hours to get there in enough time to get ready for an 8:00AM ring time. It was four point majors and we had to make sure Sky looked her very best. Well, it was our lucky day, the judge awarded Skyla WB, BOW, and BOS for her very first major! I can't tell everyone how exciting it was for both of us. Sky must of known something good happened because when we went back in for Breed, she was the happiest and most relaxed I have ever seen her in the ring. It made me so proud of my little girl. We have had a hard time until recently so to get a major was a huge boost to me and my girl. We are going to enjoy this win for a long time. My first major on my first show dog...something that only comes around once and I won't forget the feeling and I don't think Sky will either.

Skyla and Friends

Well, Skyla is having a fun weekend since its is Corgi time in the house. Her good Cardi friend, Abbey, is staying with us for the week since she is having her doggie girly time and driving her friend Louie at home nuts. So, Skyla has Abbey to play with along with her pal Axl. Needless to say...she is in Cardi heaven. Abbey not too sure about little Axl but I am sure he will win her over by the end of the week. I might not make it through the week....:)

Yes, I can fit into it....

Skyla and I went out to celebrate a late puppy birthday with her breeders Pat and Neila and her littermates Topper and Turbo. It was a very hot day so Skyla thought it only appropriate to sit in the water dishes. This is something she does everytime she is out there. She doesn't quite fit like when she was a puppy. She sat in the water dishes, ran around like a crazy girl and shared birthday treats with her Cardigan friends. Overall, a very fun Cardigan day..:)

Happy Birthday to me!

Hi! Since my name is in the title of this blog, I finally am making my first post. Today is my birthday and it has been a fun day! Can't you tell by my tongue hanging out in all the pictures my mom took. I guess I am two years old and I have gotten some really cool stuff. I got an awesome squeaky sheep from my Vallhund BFF Darby and her mom, Sarah. It's loads of fun to pull the hair off that sheep. Then this evening I got my own tunnel to practice my tunnel runs for agility. Talk about fun...none of my other dog friends know what it is for, so more time for me to run through it...:) For dinner, my mom brought home a Sonic burger, which I gladly shared with my other dog friends and then this little round cake thing..wasn't sure what it was but it was really tasty.

Gosh, I don't know why birthdays don't happen everyday!

PS...that is my friend Brandy in the background of my first picture. She obviously forgot that today is all about me...:)

What, a pool...for me??

Skyla's second birthday is coming up on July 29th and she got an early birthday present-her own personal swimming pool. She has always loved getting in the water especially when she visits her breeders, Pat and Neila. When she was a puppy living with them, she loved to sit in all the water dishes and of course drink out of it while sitting in it. When we go to visit, that is still the first thing she does....try to fit herself in the first water dish, pool or any body of water.

So to celebrate her 2nd birthday, she now has her own pool. (Of course none of her toy dog friends would dare get wet unless it was absolutely necessary). The first thing she did when she got into the pool...take a drink out of it. If nothing else, Skyla is predictable.

Skyla's San Antonio Adventure

Skyla has been a traveling show dog the past few weeks with our latest stop being San Antonio, TX. We were traveling with Skyla's BFF Darby, a Swedish Vallhund, Hawk, also a Swedish Vallhund the big boy with all the girls, and their mom Sarah. The trip included lots of playing in hotel rooms, getting into the feista mood with a new hat and of course, strutting our stuff in the show ring. All great fun!
Darby and Hawk had a very successful weekend with Darby winning all three days, with 2 points on Sat and Sunday getting her second major! What a great day for her and Sarah. Hawk went breed all three days and did himself proud in the Groups. Skyla did pretty well...she beat one boy dog on Friday but no points, went WB on Saturday, still no points, and on Sunday won her class against a very pretty red girl shown by Sherri Hurst but ended up going RWB. Oh well, we had fun and will keep trying to get those points.
Skyla and I are new to blogging so hopefully we will get better as we go along. Look for her next new adventure.
