Spotlight on Milo

Another Birthday photo from the Myles x Buffy litter who turned one year old June 13. Milo looks quite proud and happy in his birthday outfit. Thanks to Steve Surfman for the photo. Owners Lisa and Steve also sent along a photo of Milo's first AKC show win. He looks really handsome here. Milo is doing and learning lots of things and is bound to be a "very accomplished dog."

Pretty Piper on Pink Pillow

I really enjoy hearing from people who have gotten whippets from me and I really, really enjoy getting photos of them. I love hearing how they are doing and how much they are loved!! Today, I got this photo of Piper who lives in Florida. She resembles her mom Bonnie in the face, but what really strikes me is how much she looks like her grandfather, the great Luke, CH Sporting Fields Kinsman.

I also noticed how the chair in the background makes a heart shape above Piper's head. Thank you Randi for sharing this photo with me and making my day.

Happy 1st Birthday to Myles and Buffy litter

Yesterday was the big 1st birthday for these babies, so I guess they aren't puppies any more, now they are all grown up. And here is how Mimi celebrated her birthday with her owners Paige and Michael and her best bud Oberon....... goodies at "Piglet's Pantry" in Mt. Dora, FL.

Faith gets a second major this past weekend

Under long time breeder judge Dr. John Shelton. It was at the Asheville Kennel Club on Sunday and a nice 4 pointer.

New Champion photo

Merlin's finishing photo, I am so proud of this sweet boy. And I think this photo turned out really well. Merlin was completely owner/breeder handled to his championship which makes it extra sweet.

Leaving the nest

All the babies have gone to their new homes now except one. Charm is still here with me but even she will be leaving soon for her new home in Florida. She is exceptionally bright and her name Charm fits her well as she is certainly charming. She will be going to Ann Meyer and co-owned by myself and co-breeder Debbie Butt. Looks like she will be headed to the show ring.

Here she is being her cute self and hanging out with a rubber chicken.

Jake, Sel. Ch Fleetwood Return To Sendr has been a busy boy lately with lots of girlfriends. I will keep you posted but so far it looks like Mira, or Appraxin Sowagla Hearts Desire is definitely PG. We are awaiting the news on several other girls. If you want info on upcoming Jake pups, just drop me an email.

Baby photos

I am much remiss for not posting photos of the babies before now, but they change so much every day, it is hard to keep up. They are toddling, playing sorta, their eyes are open of course and they have tiny little teeth. They are very aware of me now when I check up on them, sitting and looking right at my face as if to say, whoh, there's that big lady again! They are also enjoying being held, but not for long, and like for me to sit in the ex-pen with them so they can investigate me thoroughly. Today they decided to munch on mommas food so even though they are not quite 4 weeks, I will be starting them on soaked puppy food.
Hope you enjoy the photos.

Robbie Photos by Festiva Photography

This is Robbie, or Sachem Sowagla Highland Rogue, he is 1 year old. You might notice how much he looks like his daddy Merlin. He is a double grandson of my Arthur.

A date with Festiva Photography

Last weekend, I met with Katie Rudolph of Festiva Photography and three of my dogs. We got some lovely photos, so I wanted to share. I will have to post photos of my old boy Arthur later as the photos aren't ready yet.

But here are some lovely ones of Raven, or Moonbeam Sowagla N Sportingfld Gothic Girl. I am also attaching a logo I painted for Raven, just for fun.
