Royals Sir Walter Raleigh

Create your own video slideshow at


Well, we are still waiting for Cecil (Harv's Celestial Firefly)! Kissez was bred on Jan 5th, if she's pregnant the due date will be March 9. The breeders should be able to tell soon whether or not she's pregnant. If she is, I won't know until they're born if Cecil is there! He is obviously a male, but is also a horsecoat and NOT cream! The only thing that worries me is that the daddy is a cream. I'm trying not to get too excited, but can't help it! If she's pregnant their eyes are developing this week and the paws start developing next week!!!! No, I'm not excited . . .

2009 AKC Agility Invitational - Long Beach

Jack was the #1 agility Shar-Pei once again (4th year in a row). He has attended since the first Invitational in 2006. I'm so proud of my guy -- such a good boy. He finished #12 in his jump height at the Invitational -- one spot short of making Finals! That is pretty amazing considering he was competing against all breeds. You can see his runs here:

Katie was also invited (the 2nd time for her). She ran really well and didn't embarrass her mother (me!). She finished #64 in her jump height out of about 100 dogs. Not horrible!

The conditions were not great this year --- they had open entries for conformation dogs so they needed the space for them inside. We were stuck out in a tent. They tried to make it sound like it would be wonderful by telling us how it was not an "ordinary" tent - it was one used for political conventions, etc --- well, it was not nice at all. The only good thing was that they brought in sod for us to run on. Hopefully they'll do that next year also -- we'll be back inside and not treated like step-children.
