Monthly Blog - March 2011
March 6, 2011
Well as you can see by my blog Jan and Feb did not exist and in a sense they did not for us. We lost Doug's mom in Feb. It all seemed so fast which I guess was kindness for her, but still a bit shocking for us. We miss her very much.
My parents moved to a facility that specializes in dementia care and after a very very rocky emotional start things seem to be settling down. So the weekend trips to both Doug's family and mine have stopped for awhile and we are getting some time at home.
So March is a new month and I'm back to posting pictures and being more responsive in my doggie clubs. I'm also back in the show ring since there had been very little time for showing. We did great last weekend. Calvin took Winners Dog all three days, and Best of Winners 2 out of 3 days. Abby, my Coby Flirt daughter took Winners Bitch all three days and Best of Winners 1 day, She also took Best Puppy and Best Puppy in Group, so we cleaned up. Very nice weekend. Calvin just needs 1 more point for his Canadian Championship and Abby picked up 4 points.
My new job is going very well, I am truly enjoying the challenge and am so very glad I made the decision to move to a new company. The people are great, the company has a culture that is pretty easy to integrate into and I'm very busy which I like. I feel very fulfilled and challenged
Puppy Life is good. We have only one puppy left from Poppy's litter and he is a very very sweet boy, actually Doug's litter favourite, well maybe after Alannah everyone loved Alannah. The Ella Coby puppies are gorgeous, a bit of mom and dad in them. Beautiful heads, some really nice coats and at least two show potential in the litter - yup I'm repeating this breeding.
I'm also very excited about the two next litters, Taylor and Cuba. A line breeding on the Coby side. Taylor has never ever failed to give me gorgeous show puppies and Cuba is 10.5 lbs of gorgeous coat and personality. Calvin (Coby son) was bred to the first time with Holly so I'm excited to see how they produce as well.
Spring is coming YIPPEEE
