She’s been the very best companion, mouse hunter, cheerio chaser, wubba lovin’, face hugging, downright demanding, rain hating, farm girl momma in the entire world, and we love her dearly.

Happy Birthday to our beautiful Molly!

Her son Loki decided to give his Mom an early birthday present at the Erie Shores show the day before.  On the first day of the show he went Winners Dog and Best of Winners over a decent entry.  On Friday when I thought things couldn’t get any better, he finished his Championship by going Best of Breed.

My boy is now formally known as CH. Embee’s Mischief Managed, our first home-bred Champion.  So proud of my stinker and his accomplishments.  Along with conformation we’ve been having a lot of fun doing a foundations agility class, he’s fearless and fast!

Molly finished her Championship in a similar fashion, with a Best of Breed or two.

Maybe her naughty daughter Ruffi will be able to do the same thing one day.  For now we’re having training discussions about doing doggy business on wet grass (I wonder where she gets that from?!) and trying to convince her that shoes and bowls are not dog toys.

Would you believe the starving puppy routine? photo ruffibowl_zpsf3518d26.jpg

What shoe?  I don’t know what you are talking about!

I think we have some more work to do.
