VIolet and Vincent Puppies Arrive 3/31/11

We are so excited that our long awaited breeding of Vincent (Ch. Tell Tails Proof Positive) and Violet (Ch. Schiely's Mystic Breeze) have delivered us 6 gorgeous puppies. VIncent is one of my favorite all time boys. He taught me what reach and drive was suppose to look like and contrary to what some people think is one of the most important traits a sporting dog can possess. I had the pleasure of watching 8 year old Vincent win the Best in Show of Veterans at the Milton, NY dog show in March. It was very exciting as we cheered him on and was professionally handles by his partner Haley Hesskew. I also was lucky enough to attend Westminster Kennel Club dog show in NYC in February to cheer him and Haley on. It was such a memorable weekend (Love you Vince!)
Both Violet and Vincent are up to date on CERF and have have their hips registered with OFA.
We are planning on keeping a puppy from this litter and do have some wonderful homes already waiting for the puppies we do not keep for ourselves. Thank you for the inquiries.

MDG's Garden Parti : "Dahlia"

We are happy to announce that after having her evaluated for the showing- MDG's Garden Parti aka Dahlia has the makings of a beautiful showgirl and conforms to the breed standard nicely. She has nice conformation with a sassy showgirl attitude to match. When she was born we knew she was special- and as she started to grow- she just got more beautiful by the day. But it was not really about her beauty- because all puppies are cute- but it was about her presence. She could just make your head turn and say "look at me". I do love that about her. She is comically funny and fiesty all at the same time.

She has gone to stay and train with her grandma Kathy in Pennsylvania. There we get reports that free-stacks in front of the fridge to get a treat, trots around with her tail in the air with her toys, loves to meet new people and get their undivided attention. Cuddles, watches TV and naps with Jimmy (Kathy's Hubby) and LOVES BOLOGNA.

We look forward to her show career starting in June 2011. She will be coming back to New York second weekend of June for a 4 day show in Yorktown Heights, NY. I look forward to seeing how she has grown. If you are in the area we would love to see you there. Your can also look for her in Sturbridge, MA at the ASC Nationals in the 6-9 puppy class. If Dahlia finishes her championship- she will be our first homebred champion which would be very special to us.
