Let’s See Those Pumpkins!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  As the décor changes we’d like to share some pics of some of our Pups all over the US enjoying “Pumpkin Massacre” 2016.

Our Dogues seem to have a particular affinity and lust for pumpkins.  An annual tradition here that seems to have caught on and growing with our families is the “Pumpkin Massacre.”   The time of year when we take down the outside Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations and let the Dogues have at the pumpkins that have been taunting them for weeks.

We cut off the tops, scoop out the seeds and let the Dogues have at it.  Pumpkin is wonderful for all dogs.  We always keep a few cans on hand during the off season and when we travel to dog shows as it works miracles with any kind of tummy ache.  It’s our first “go to” home remedy when someone has a g.i. upset.

Just be sure you buy real canned pumpkin, not canned pumpkin pie that already has sugar and spices mixed in.  Trust us when we say that you don’t want those problems ;).

Career Show and multiple Best In Show Wins!

We are beyond ecstatic to pass along our show results from last weekend!  We came home with a fist-full of Red, White and Blues (BEST IN SHOW colored ribbons) and are still wrapping our heads around this!

Our foundation Girl Urszula, at 7 years old, wins  BEST IN SHOW VETERAN against competition of all breeds.  Most show careers peak at 3-4 years old and to have her out, moving, looking like a rock star and WINNING at 7 is practically unheard of.

Our puppy Rudy wins 2 BEST PUPPY IN SHOW.  1 Reserve BEST PUPPY IN SHOW.

At the end of the show there is a final competition whereby all of the Best in Show and Reserve Best in Show from the weekend go back in the ring against each other to compete for BEST OF THE BEST IN SHOW.

Our puppy Rudy wins BEST OF THE BEST IN SHOW.  This is beyond amazing, there are truly not enough words, we are still speechless. rudy3rivers rudyandursula rudybishow rudyringshot rudyringshot2 ursuaochicksrock ursulabigribbon1 ursularbis
