Back over Labor Day weekend, Captain Jack struck again, this time in Amana, IA, winning Winner's Dog 3 out of 4 days, Best Bred By Exhibitor, Best of Breed Puppy, and a Puppy Group 4. He took home a stack full of ribbons that he could have decorated the whole back wall of his crate. LOL He still has a lot of growing and filling out to do, but he thinks the dog shows are fun and his attitude is really starting to show.
Emmy moved out of our house and in with her junior handler, Paige, to work on their chemistry in the ring. They have been showing well together, but as many of us know, the better the chemistry, the more successful you will be! From all reports so far, they are both having a ball, and we are excited to see them in a few weeks at the Lincoln show.

Ruby is the next barkday, and she turns 7. Another one who doesn't act her age, she constantly runs and keeps Phantom and Cristal in shape. Her main job has always been to keep the show dogs in shape by going for walks at a brutal pace for the lazier ones in the house. She sets her pace early on and, like a metronome, never breaks her stride. You could almost say she's the Jillian Michaels of our house ;o) Happy Birthday Ruby-Doo!!!
