Merry Christmas to All!

Karma turned six months old on December 9, 2010. Her six month evaluation took place on December 10, 2010. The verdict is in, and Karma sentenced to a life of a show dog. She has very nice head planes, a tight lip line, has all front teeth (top and bottom), a BEAUTIFUL outline to die for with gorgeous angulation. I am still working on those ears to tip, so if you see tape wrapped around the ears themselves, it's to hold the glue in place.

We have received news that we will try our darnedest to get Shaine and Ellie into agility at the nationals. I'm not sure if Ellie will have enough training to do anything with it. If I can get both of them eligible, we should try and work on herding. If that works out, you may see both Ellie and Shaine competing in best all around sheltie. If not, well... It just wasn't meant to be. We'll sure try though. :) I'm so excited!

I have many more friends with many different breeds (showing) all over the world thanks to the emphamous FaceBook. Those breeds include Pharaoh, Ibizans, Gordon Setters, and even MORE shelties. I have such a wonderful array of friends, and many have such great advice when I need it. Thank goodness for FaceBook. :) To all of my friends and everyone else, have a wonderful, merry Christmas and we'll see you next year!

Karma's 6 Month Eval

So Karma doesn't turn 6 months until Friday, but I went ahead and took some photos today. She is turning out very nicely, and I am very pleased with her all around attitude and structure. She has a beautiful outline. This weekend, before her real six month evaluation is completed, I will have her groomed up. After the evaluation, I will take her somewhere where there is nice scenery and take pictures. I'm not sure where that will be yet, but I'll find somewhere. :) Until then, I am holding a few outline pictures to tide the fans over. ;)
