I love getting pictures of "our puppies". Yes, even after our baby Blues leave Brighthope they will always remain "our puppies". I take great enjoyment in knowing that "our puppies" have such wonderful lives with their owners.

Dax is a Ciron and Allure puppy born November 2010.
Blue is a Reign and Allure puppy born in January 2012.
These Blue Picardy Spaniels really do live "a dog's life"

Brighthope loaded up the Blues and headed to Thorndale for the Sporting Dog Specialty this past weekend. Grampa Ciron showed Lyle (his son) and Stanley (his grandson) how it is done.
It was great to be in the ring again with Ciron. At 10 plus years old he still moved like a dream and put a smile on my face.
Lyle moves just like his daddy. At 17 months old he still has some maturing to do.
And Stanley......... well..........he is all legs right now at 5months old. So once his body "catches up" he should figure out just where to put them when running around the ring.
All in all it was a fun weekend.
