We had an incident when the loudspeaker went off on Sunday throwing our babies into a panic. Miley gathered herself back, but Mayer was undone. Hopefully he'll get his confidence back, as he'd been doing so well up to that point. Miley took RWB and went on to win Best Puppy in Group under Les Rogers.
She showed like a trooper and rose to the occasion and went on to win Best Puppy in Show!
Here she is on the final exam under judge Butch MacDonald. She didn't let down for a minute...we are so proud of our young hopeful.

We are pleased to confirm that "Valerie" is in whelp to Junior (Ch Lynphil's Solstice). Puppies due around December 10th...tri-factored sables and pure for sables.
We are looking forward to this litter. Valerie is the dam of our ASSA Futurity 12-18 month and 12-18 month sable and white class winner "Ch Laureate Jivara". Junior is linebred on the beautiful CSSA National Breed winner BISS Am/Can Ch Lynphil's Classy Lil Chassis ROMC.

This picture was taken moments ago right outside my office window! They have been hanging out for about a month; and Pete counted 35 of them in the back field on Sunday. In the morning around 6:30 or so, just as it is getting light, they will fly out of the tree down to the lowlands. I remember being shocked the first time I saw one up a tree; it just never crossed my mind that they could fly.

Celebrate What's Right With The World Video by Lazarus! - The Resurrected - MySpace Video
And I think I might even like this second one even more; well worth the twenty minutes to view, also by Dewitt Jones:

On Friday I did an airport run, bathed five dogs and Pete had six meetings (both of us were exhausted by end of day) and on Saturday morning LuAnne, Pete and I went to the Marriott in downtown Ottawa to give a presentation on Shelties to the Canadian Judges Study Group.
Right after the presentation we went home and packed up Emma, Miley, Mayer and Cocoa and headed to Syracuse. It was a gorgeous sunny day with temperature around 18 C. The pups had a good outing. Miley and Mayer turned 6 months old the day of the show and had a wonderful debut.
Our good friend Brenda Campbell (Anamchara Shelties) drove down from London and was a huge help; we couldn't have gotten them all done up without her. Brenda also handled Miley to BOS in Sweeps!
Mayer waiting to go in the ring...I'm looking worn out from all the travelling.

Just starting out and they've already been in the ditch...
