Waiting for news

July 1, 2009

Part of the fun of having an extended Doggy Family is sometimes you just get to sit home and wait for news.  This past weekend was one of those weekends.  

PJ’s brother Harvey  (Ch. Mariel’s Harvest Moon) got group placements this weekend, including a Group 1.  

Harry was in OKC with Chickie and June Carter and Chickie  ( was WB/BW for a major, which was very cool.

But the very coolest news was a call from my good friend Phyllis of Philmac Tollers  ( called me that her young special Ranger (Ch. Javahill Backwoods Boy, RN) was awarded BEST IN SHOW!  The Holy Grail of the dog show world.  I was so happy for Ranger’s team.  It was great that the judge awarded the BIS to a basically unknown dog shown by a Jr. Handler.  Ranger is Phyllis’ hunting buddy and all around good buddy.  He isn’t on the show circuit and isn’t advertised.  He is a very nice dog that lives in a small town in New Mexico and isn’t shown very much.   This is sort of a small town boy makes good story.  But the thing is, is that Ranger is a very nice dog.    He is like a lot of really nice dogs, he lives a great life as some one beloved pet and on occasion he goes out to be a show dog.  One of the nicest dogs you’ll never see because he lives in a backyard instead of on a show circuit.  So congratulations TEAM Ranger on your success!

I can’t wait to see what happens next weekend!

    Who knew when I sent him off to summer camp, that he’d make me such a nice macaroni necklace!
