Thumper puppies continued

A nice snapshot of Posey, a blue merle girl from Thumper's litter with Henna (Sonrise Little Red Hen) in Canada. She looks happy enough, I think!

Weekend in Wisconsin

Thumper at Rock River Valley ASCA club shows, where he went Best of Breed twice (judges Erin Swain and Catherine Thompson.

Win picture from Colorado

This is Wyatt's win photo from his first AKC point(s?) several weeks back. 11 months old. As reported earlier he also has a 5 point ASCA Major from last weekend; I have not seen a photo yet of that win. He is from the Thumper x Henna litter.

An AKC Weekend in Missouri, etc

 Missouri AKC shows

Thumper BOS on Saturday under judge Dana Cline 
Select Dog Sunday under judge Merle Taylor

Wyatt (Ninebark's Cowboys and Indians)

Also got word that Wyatt, a Thumper son out of Valerie Yates's Henna, got his first ASCA win this weekend with a 5 point Major in Minnesota!  Owner Ashley Roeser has done a wonderful job with him so far; he was RWD in an earlier show of this weekend and has his first AKC points as well, garnered a month or so back. He is 11 months old.

Also saw a couple of Thumper sons from his first litter out of Sadie , bred by Debbie Mills.



Monarch is looking like a gangly 11 months but pretty. Showed him at 2 days of the MAASC shows and he showed well for me, though perhaps not quite ready to win. Nonetheless judge Melissa Borde considered him for WD. He will mature more of course, gain a bit of substance if he follows his sire's pattern, and we'lll get him back out later.
Ripley came to see me last month as well, and he is looking good too.

Favor (Inkwell's Token of Affection) started her agility career for real this weekend with her owner! No Qs but goal of focus and speed was achieved; she missed as early jump due to handler error, so Julie says. At any rate here she can be watched in all her almost-glory:

 She is in the first post but all of Julie's blog is interesting and fun.
