January has been a month of ups and downs.  Just after New Years Day I came down with a horrible cold that quickly turned into bronchitis.  I was really sick for several days!  The only good news was that my flight to Hawaii for vacation was quickly approaching.  We had a fabulous time.. aside from that text message mishap and although I wasn’t able to snorkel as much as I usually do, I did manage to get some in.  The sun and warmth was just what the Doctor ordered and I came home feeling more like myself. 


I do have some exciting news to share though!  Raven, now known as CH Embee’s Highland Moon finished her title at the Elora Gorge Kennel Club on Dec. 27th.  She was Winners Bitch for a 3 point major under breeder Judge Kim Hamel.   This was an extra special day for us as Raven is her Co-Owner Wendy’s first Champion and first show dog.  It’s also the 5th black and tan Champion for our Molly (CH Mysticmoon’s Danika).  That gives Molly her ROM title (not confirmed yet) and I couldn’t be more proud.  I don’t think there has ever been a BT Bitch in Canada to earn an ROM, let alone a BT who’s Champion children are also black and tan!  To say we are thrilled is understatement. Sassy pants Molly has certainly left a huge mark on our breeding program.

Sitting ringside with her giant New Champion ribbon! Such a nice touch from the Elora Kennel Club


Yesterday I took my camera outside with the dogs in the fresh snow.  There was lots of frisbee played before everyone started getting cold.  It’s not the warm weather of Maui but the fresh snow is really pretty for photos.  I hope you enjoy the action, my new camera and I are getting along fabulously!

My next doggy adventure is planned for mid February in New York… any guesses?  Ruffi and I are going to have a lot of fun!   We’ll try and take some photos.
