Hungry Treasure

With food on her mind, Treasure begs for a snack from Mike. Triscuits and cheese please!

Getting Ready

Treasure is getting ready to have her puppies in a couple of weeks. She isn't too happy about bath time as you can see. Notice her ears. The tummy is expanding each day and she loves to have us rub it. Food is on Treasure's mind constantly and even after a full meal she will put her feet up on the top of her crate where the dog cookies are hoping for more. We can't seem to fill her up.

Award of Merit

Awards of Merit at a national specialty are a very rare event for a breeder. They are highly coveted and many breeders have never earned one on a dog. So today was a day that Mike says he will never forget as long as he lives. His Digger boy won the older veteran's class at the Pomeranian National specialty yesterday, and then today....CH Desert Thunder of Lenette RN went into Best of Breed to play with the big boys! Digger will be 13 years old on March 27th and was by far the oldest Pom at the show, but on this day....he showed all the young ones how it is done. Strutting his stuff around the ring, he was awarded an Award of Merit by judge Jean Fournier! Congratulations Mike and Digger. There were tears all over as the old man and his buddy Mike took their victory lap!

Buns in the Oven

Ultrasound done Tuesday reveals Treasure has buns in the oven. Puppies due approximately April 12th. Now we all wait for the stork to arrive. Looking forward to that life altering event.

All Grown Up

One day you look down at your puppy boy and discover he is all grown up and looking much more like a show dog, the show dog you had hoped he would become. Phantom is now ready to rumble. Here he is at the recent show posing with the judge and his best buddy Mike.

Tall Oaks Solid Gold Serenade CD
August 21, 1997 - March 6, 2010
Lovely Sarah went to heaven to wait by the rainbow bridge for Ethel on Saturday. Sarah was a party girl, the best trench digger I ever knew and a very sweet friend to everyone she met. She was Aunt Sarah to Boston and best friend to Whitney and Kody Bear growing up. Rest in peace my darling girl until we meet again.
