Manya and Tory are 6 weeks old!

 Today is a girls' Birthday. They are 6 weeks old now,
it is a big mark for little puppies.
When they turning 6, they starting  to be social, playful, very curious
(sometimes too much curious for their own good!)
and very photogenic... Yet very hard to take pictures,
as those little things wouldn't stay still for longer then an eye blink.
This is why we scheduled this BD photoshoot NOW.
Who knows, if we would be able to make them stay still for us tomorrow.
Some time ago I ordered new photo background
and this was a great way to try it out.
It worked out fine, so I can order more of the same brand.

 Above - Tory. Reminding me a lot of her Sire.
Below - Manya - reminding a lot of her aunt - Lusha,
when she was a baby!
They only getting better day by day...

Manya & Tory are 1 month old!

 Today we are celebrating puppies first important anniversary -
they turned to be month old... And what a difference did it make.
Sometime I can not believe it, how one more day may totally change 
all behavioral pattern of little puppies.
From cautious little creatures they all the sudden turned
into fearless little predators ready to play with everything on their way.
To commemorate this day we did this little photoshoot,
when girls were posing on purple -
the color of Westminster Dog Show,
where in a few days their Daddy will be competing again
against of very best dogs in North America...

Girls know nothing about dog shows yet, 
but in a few months that will change too...
Meanwhile they enjoy all their toys and games 
and this is what childhood should be about...

Mid-winter news and updates.

Well now... time is going quickly, things are changing rapidly...
We are in February now...
What do You know of February 14?
Hearts and candies, right?...
Not only that. This year it is only Thee Day
when our favorite Breed will be shown at
Thee Most prestigious dog show in USA -
Westminster Kennel Club show in NYC.
Our "Diva" - Lusha was supposed to be a part of this show,
but Nature had different opinion and Miss Diva came in season...
Not the best, nor easiest way to be shown.
Therefore we had to drop whole idea and getting ready
for spring performance events instead.
Barn Hunt is calling her name and we need more "legs" in Agility.
And her Grand Championship campaign has to be finalized too.
So no Westminster for Lusha... not this time.

Now... meet our newest addition - Gypsy Rose "Rosie".
Finally in our family came to live with us another Standard Schnauzer.
Last one I had 20 years ago, but always knew -
it will be another right day and...
So this day has come. Rosie is here to stay, 
thank You to our wonderful friend Shawne Imler!

Awwa's twins got an addition to their living-room.
They also got bunch of new toys and learning to eat
on their own. We found out - those two are not big on meats,
but love their dairy!...  At list for now.

 Awwa  continue to be Mrs Perfection 
and gracefully fulfilling her motherly duty.
She is to go back to show ring at fall of 2017.
Only 5 more points to go to get her Championship.

Spring is not that far and girls are starting to come in season
one after another.Hopefully we are going to have
several beautiful litters later this spring.

Currently Tutta was bred to Timmy for her last litter.
Puppies expected to be born sometime in March.
Availability - end of May/beginning of June.
It will be Black/Silver litter with no other color options.

Gina and Gigi are going to be bred in February as well.
Gina is going to have another Black/Silver litter
and Gigi is going to have Salt/Pepper litter.
Litters should be born in April, available in June.
We still discussing their breeding partners.

Later at spring Ziva will be bred to Timmy
for another litter of black and Black/Silver puppies.
Availability - first part of summer.

It will be very busy time, I can tell right now...
Perhaps it will be lesser of blogging too.
So far I have more free time I'll try to do more posts...
But then - who knows.

To be continued......
