TOUCHDOWN, not talking about a football game

Justy is pregnant and Dapper scored the winning goal. I remember the words to a song that we used to sing with our children when they were small. HAVE PATIENCE, HAVE PATIENCE, DON'T BE IN SUCH A HURRY. HAVE PATIENCE, HAVE PATIENCE YOU'LL ONLY START TO WORRY. Well patience has paid off and we should expect puppies in late October. We did confirm this morning with an ultrasound at our vet clinic. Our website has pictures of both parents to be, Justy is on our "family & friends" page and Dapper is under "our dogs".

Arine's First Show

Brighthope attended the Oakville & District Kennel Club conformation dog shows this past weekend. Two shows on Friday, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. We thought it would be fun to get Arine out as a puppy and let her get a taste of the dog show world. Eclat was entered and Kim and Pat also entered Dax (Eclat's brother) as well. Whenever there are more then two Blues at a show, we always hear comments about this being a specialty for the Blue Picardy. :-) Arine is maturing nicely but we were still a little bit surprised when she took Best Of Breed at the first show and absolutely thrilled when the judge gave her Best Puppy in Group. This is only the second time in Canada that a Blue Picardy has won a puppy group, our Ciron being the first. Dax took the breed at the second show on Friday and Arine was given Best of Breed at the Saturday and Sunday shows. It was a fun weekend and we are very proud of our Dutch import, Arine. Her breeder in Holland will be thrilled with the news as well. Hats off to the Oakville club for a good show.
