Our very important post on Water Intoxication is being shared all over Facebook today and I’m thrilled that dog owners are recognizing it’s importance.  The goal isn’t to keep our dogs out of the water completely, it’s to keep a watchful eye on how they are playing/how much water is being ingested in the process and following the cardinal rule of everything in moderation.  It’s also inspired me to get an update up, we’ll see how long that inspiration lasts 😉     

The Little Lolly’s aren’t so little anymore.  They’ve made their way to new homes and are taking part in all kinds of adventures.  We’re missing them, especially since finding out that our Ebby girl is not going to have puppies this summer.  We are thrilled though to have added some wonderful new owners to our Embee family.  Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Embee Fam Jam.  I haven’t sent out invites yet but will get them out in the next little while.

We’ve also been busy showing a wild crew of black and tans and having a very successful spring and early summer!

Our gorgeous Embee’s Mischief in Maui “Tigs” owned by my good friends Chris and Paul, made his official show debut this spring.  In only a few shows he’s 1 point short of his Canadian Championship and won Reserve Winners Dog at the Cavalier Fanciers of Southern Ontario specialty show.  So proud of this boy!

His sister, Embee Jewelcroft Midnight Luau “Chai” also obtained back to back Winners Bitch majors, under breeder judge Elaine Whitney and all breed judge Dr. Gail Forsythe at the Monarch Kennel Club for her first points towards her Canadian Championship. Chai lives with Bonnie Sands at Jewelcroft Cavaliers and she’s doing a fantastic job with her.  Our Chai baby has grown up!

Our Embee Brinklow Fenton, CGN also made his show debut this spring but his brags are more about Cavalier health than show ring wins.  We’re incredibly proud of him for being MRI’d this spring and having a beautiful MRI scan just like his parents and grandparents and a few great grandparents if you want to get technical 😉  CM and SM clear, second generation.  His little round cerebellum is a work of art and I’m thrilled to have another generation of MRI tested Cavaliers to move forward with.

A rare glamour shot for this active and smart boy!

And the highlight of my year so far, our gorgeous Riff Raff girl (CH Embee’s Raising the Stakes, CGN) won Best of Opposite sex at the Cavalier Fanciers of Southern Ontario Specialty show under Jenny Macalpine.  I couldn’t be more proud to have owned and bred such a special girl.

The weekend before she won her first Grand Championship points under Dr. Gail Forsythe at the CFSO Booster show at Monarch Kennel Club.  Dr. Gail Forsythe was one of the most kind and thorough judges I’ve ever shown to.  She took her time to evaluate everyone and made my day when after our win wanted to know more about my girls (Ruffi and Chai) and complimented them on being beautiful wholecolours.  I agree.. they are 🙂  It’s very rare that any judge at an all breed shows takes time to give feedback and it was just so appreciated.   Not such a great photo of me or the judge but Ruffi looks gorgeous so I cropped it!

Next task.. update my poor top pages.  Such a neglected site lately. A little tlc should help.
