A Big Ol' Head

This is my favorite picture of Oscar. My bosses at work made me swear it wasn't photoshopped as they'd never seen such a big head on a dog. My dad was attending the show with us once again and snapped this picture when I wasn't paying attention. I keep it in a frame that reads "I want to be the person my dog thinks I am." What can I say? I love my boy.

Pass The Cigars

Yep, Oscar's a daddy. The lucky Mama is Kiokee's Get 'er Done, bred by Catie Arney.

Oscar sired seven beautiful puppies, 5 girls and 2 boys, all fawn.
One of the little girls will be mine and I am so happy to welcome her into my heart. I confess, I did cry on hearing the news that they had all been delivered safely. It is such a magical concept, not only that there is new life on this planet, but also the knowledge that my beloved baby boy will live on in these new little bodies. Rumor has it that Oscar's personality is well represented in one of his little boys, affectionately nick-named "Oscar Minor" by Ms. Catie. We knew he had a pretty powerful personality, so it's no wonder that these pups are a handful. Thank you, Catie (and sweet Reba!), for this most precious gift!

Chocolate's Best of Opposite Weekend

We showed in Newnan, GA this weekend. Well, Chocolate did. Oscar stayed home and guarded the house.

She did VERY well. Catie Arney of Kiokee Mastiffs took her in for me both days and did a FABULOUS job handling my soft girl. Professional photographs will be on the way in a couple of weeks, but here are a couple I took. Ms. Clark is the judge in the photo above. Her husband, Mr. Clark judged Sunday. Rufus, Ch. LazyD King Rufus of Seawright, won BOB both days.

Callisto (aka Our Nemesis) also showed this weekend. Here is a picture of the girls illustrating that even competitors can be ladies. And look, Terri, I even got your head! So much for the Headless Handler moniker.

Trojan, Chocolate's littermate, also showed this weekend in open dogs, winning winner's dog and best of winner's both days. I have pictures of him, too, but I'll let Jim put those up at his site, which I know he will :)
