Happy Birthday to the NCIS Litter

The NCIS litter?  Yes, puppies named after characters on the NCIS show – Gibbs, Ziva Abby, Duckie.  Five years old today – Oh my and what they have done.  Gibbs has fathered three fabulous litters.  He is a GCH and everyone will be hearing more about him as 2017 approaches.  Ziva who just gave us a beautiful litter of 9 puppies (one boy still available BTW), and ABBY – three BEST IN SHOW awards this summer and almost to her platinum grand championship – the photo is of my Mom with Abby helping her to “nap” on the couch – really?

ZsaZsa Crosses The Rainbow Bridge

Sadly, last night we had to say goodbye to ZsaZsa, the last of our Amber children. She was 14 years old.  No matter how many we have lost, each loss hurts just as much.  I never get used to it.  ZsaZsa was such a lovely girl in spirit and in form.  She gave us so much in her companionship and in the wonderful children and grandchildren she left us.

Who could ask for anything more?

Our shining star, Abby, Gold GCH Celebra’s Good Time Was Had By All, was the Best In Show winner this weekend in Greenwhich, CT. We are so proud of this happy go lucky girl. So grateful to her BFF (handler) Jamie Donelson and especially grateful to Abby’s owners Alan and Joyci Feldman. Yes a good time was had by all.

Celebra Updates

We keep hoping for puppies coming our way but are still waiting for Mother Nature to kick in.  In the meantime we are enjoying a few shows and the company of good friends.  Hope you are too! (artwork by Christi Leigh; do not copy)
