Dog shows and babies, fun and work. Bea's and Tutta's puppies 5 weeks old.

AHello ,everybody!
 Me, Irina, is here  ,  with dogs and puppies , Tatiana and Jim is away for dog show weekend .
I want to share with you what happened during those weeks .In short -dog show season is great  ,
 our black puppies Nita and Misty  ( Shazzam of Oz Not to be Misunderstood and Shazzam of Oz Seven Notes in Black ) started their show adventures ,  competing in Puppy Class. They still have long way to go and a lot  to learn , however , they seems to start enjoying the whole game, and this what is important. Dog shows isn't only ribbons, prizes and titles. It is what we do with our dogs - together , as a teammates , and their  joy working with their humans  and our fun is what matters.
And ,speaking of those titles and ribbons :-)  -they were first and second in their puppy class and even won Reserve of Winner title.
Shazzam of Oz Awesome News (Awwa) won the breed last weekend and she is half-way through to her Championship.
And our beautiful Lusha (Shazzam of Oz Tactical Solution) won her last major  , and  she is now an American AKC Champion !  She will  now compete in Special class of Champions for her GrandChampion title , together with our Sammie.
Lusha also started trialling in Agility.
We have some nice pictures from those events and waiting for official  show pictures to come, will post it then.
Awwa and Lusha both are daughters of Bea . So I guess, next is  updates on Bea's current litter and Tutta's babies .
Babies are 5 weeks old now. They are doing fantastic , and by now walking ,playing , interacting, voicing  their opinion and are absolute delight to watch  ,cuddle,and spend time with. I wish  it would be 16 hours in a day so I can spend extra couple hours with those little ones .
 Here is some pictures from today .

 I thought it is funny how those Bea's boys lined up while playing.


Mr.Peter with his favorite toy .
   Peter in front , Flopsy and Mopsy .                 

Mopsy was in philosophical mood. He is biggest boy in this litter now.


 Flopsy . A lot of salt/pepper color pushed up already. And with  favorite toy -below.


Mopsy and Flopsy are having some brother-to-brother conversation. I think it has something to do with that yellow little ball.:-)

Cotton-tail  and Phina.

Phina was not sure is she wants  to play or practice hand-stand.

Cotton-tail was very,very busy , trying to collect all toys together.

Then we include some training into the game. For short time puppy wear collars and cloth . This teach them to accept any human manipulation with them without much fuzz and , obviously , is a starting step toward collar and harness for walking.
And they looked just adorable !

Phina. Not sure she was very happy with my idea. :-)

Tutta's babies were in playground #2. We usually set few different playgrounds, and puppies spend few play sessions in one ,with adding new toys and changing configuration every time, then we move them to another one.Tutta's  pack had fun with tunnel set up today .

When we first introduced the tunnel , puppies decided it is great place to curl and sleep there. Now they are really having fun just running through it.

Bea's litter 2016. Bea X Chant.

 And of course Bea's puppies... Oh boy! Those are always my favorites.
Not mentioning the fact Chant is a Daddy...
They were born on July 28, Birth Day of Beatrix Potter,
lady who wrought charming  "The Tale of Peter Rabbit".
That gave Ira all that 'Mopsy-Flopsy" idea, do not blame me... 
I can't help it. She is getting very creative lately.
All right now... above- Mrs Josephine...
And she is going to be loved and cherished by our Veronika, Irina's daughter
and my God-daughter all-in-one.
Maybe we even will talk her into some shows... maybe... Right, Veronika?...

 "Cotton Tail". We just call him "Cat". 
(I know it is confusing, as he is the dog... 
male dog after all.)

 Of course... not to forget "Mr. Peter"... he is the biggest one 
with small white spot on front of his chest.
You will love him. We already do.

 "Mopsy" and "Flopsy"... not sure which one is which.
All questions to Irina.
(here we go Ira, You have more things to do -
identify who is "Mopsy" and who is... You know what!)

Now I'm off to walk our dogs, 
You guys enjoy all those photos we just posted.
It may not be any others for a while, as we have more shows coming up
and it will will surely keep me away from blogging.
Oh, well! It is all for good.

Tutta and Timmy 2016 litter.

Irina came up with Forest themed manes this time. So here we go...

Bloomsburg Show weekend.

 Next week after Neeta-Nee it was a Bloomsburg show,
but for various reasons we could only attend very last day
 with only one dog what was Gigi....
Poor girl is still be in heat and
wasn't very interested in the ring procedure, instead
 she was looking around for hot boys!..
Regardless of that we ended up with taking reserve winner,
just like weekend before.
We also had great time chatting with friends and Judge 
(after her ring assignment).

Below - our Monday's trophy.

Neeta Nee Dog Show.

 In mid-July Jim and I went to Neeta-Nee Kennel Club dog show.
It held in Centre Hall (Central PA) and this time of the year IT IS HOT!
But fun part about it was - we camped at the show grounds
side-by side with our friends and their schnauzers
and had wonderful time regardless of heat.
Beside of temperature, weather was beautiful, I walked the dogs
and couldn't resist to take some pictures in the morning with all the flowers.
Sure those are weeds, but so pretty!
Our show stars this time were Roy - above
and Awwa (below, left) with Gigi (below right).

 Girls totally enjoyed themselves.
Roy was trying to explain me that Mrs Gigi came in season
and it should have to do something with him...
I told him "NO! We are here to work."

 Evenings were on a cooler side, we had a picnic outside of our camper
and schnauzers joined us.

First day of show... Can not complain!
Roy went Best of Breed, Awwa got reserve winner bitch.
Gigi did well too, considering her situation.

 Next day went better yet. Roy got a Breed again,
Awwa got winner bitch and Gigi got reserve.
I opted NOT to go for the groups, as it was way too hot
and dogs already worked hard.
Instead we just wrapped up our stuff and went home to AC.
Soon we got our show pictures!
Above - Roy winning Breed on a day 1.
Below - Roy and Awwa on a day too.
We all about baked, but we had the job done!
6 points on two dogs over two days show weekend... Happy!
