Weekend & Show News

Little Ms Riley did well this weekend at the Rosenburg, TX shows! She was able to garnish her first 2 AKC points by going Winners on Saturday and Best of Winners on Sunday. She is just shy of 7 months old and this was her 2nd time in the ring. I am soooo SUPER PROUD of my little smooshie! I was told by my handler, Barbara Weiner, that Riley became a wiggly cute puppy on the table when Judge Paul Chen talked sweet baby talk to her! Gotta love the temperaments on the puppies from this litter! :-) Riley also moved well in the ring and seems to enjoy being a little show girl. Riley is the puppy that stayed here from the Chase/Ditto litter. Her registered name is Snapdragon Something Unspoken. Hopefully, show pictures will come shortly. :-) 

Brother Rango will make his show debut at the Hobbs, New Mexico shows the beginning of February and then attend the shows in Denver, Colorado. He will get to stay with G-Ma Penni in New Mexico as well. She has promised to send pictures and I will post them as they come in. :-)

Other brother Killian will continue his show career with owner Kathleen McCombs in Waco, TX.  I am not 100% sure of his show schedule as I suspect Kathleen will be busy raising some Chase smooshies of her own soon. Penni tells me Chase sent a "special package" to one of Kathleen's girls (Kiena) recently and there should be puppies around March 22nd. If anyone is interested in one of these smooshies, there is a puppy application on Penni's blog.

2012 & Beyond at Snapdragon Cardigans...

I hope everyone is having a good 2012 so far! :-) 
The Ditchas are growing up so fast that it is hard to believe they are already almost 6 & 1/2 months old! Riley and brother Killian made their ring debuts in Glen Rose last weekend. No points for either one but they sure had fun in the ring and that is the important part. They also looked good doing it! :-) The ribbons and points will come later. Riley will be will handler Barb for the next few weeks going to shows around Houston and in Louisiana. I sure miss her when she's gone but I know she has to do it. Maybe one day, if I can find the time off from work, I will be able to try my hand at showing Little Ms Riley Poe myself.
Brother Rango in New Mexico will make his ring debut in Hobbs this month. He will also get to vacation at Penni's house while Johnny & Laura are away. I made Penni promise to send updated pictures!
The are some exciting things in store here at Snapdragon Cardigans! Updates will come as plans are finalized. Hopefully 2012 will turn out to be a great year! :-)
