Reminiscing, and the future

Flora, Luther and Sabrina

As I was bathing my oldest dog today, I was reminiscing about where we started fifteen years ago and the path we are currently taking in Cardigans.

Our first Cardigans, Tristan, Demi and Cole, have all left this earth.  Our second generation, Sabrina and Luther, are now mature veterans.  Life other than dogs has kept us out of the show ring for the last couple years, but we are excited about what the future holds. Youngsters, Gatsby and Flora, bring in stunning attributes from other well respected breeders and we are excited about showing them.

In the meantime, we are planning our next litter.  This litter will be linebred on Luther through two of his sons.  The sire will be CH Merrythought The Keeping Quilt, a grandson of Rocky, and the dam is our "Coffee", Beistshemesh Cafe Au Lait, a daughter of Sterling.  All puppies will be black and white with brindle points.  I cannot begin to explain the excitement I have for this stunning pedigree!

Nylabone DuraChew Dental Chew Dino Dog Toy from

This winter has been a long, cruel winter in the Northeast, which has left us with little to say.   I must thank for providing us a distraction from the cold and snow, with allowing us to review a Nylabone DuraChew Dental Chew Dino Dog Toy!

Cardigans are tough chewers.  A smoked knee cap will only last a couple hours.  The Nylabone DuraChew Dental Chew Dino Dog Toy LASTS!!!  And the sale price of 3.99 each is a great deal.   This Dino chew helps clean teeth, and must taste great, as they all want to share it.  They love this chew toy! I highly recommend this toy to anyone who has a serious chewer in their home.

Here is Gatsby showing off a Dino for you!  

Let me tell you a little more about    Remember I said that this winter has been brutal? has made this winter easier on us as we can place a $49 minimum order and get FREE SHIPPING!  That's right.  Dog and cat food, treats and toys, shipped direct to your door for FREE.  We have used them all winter to keep the 7 dogs and 4 cats well fed.  Their prices are less than what I can find locally, and since we are in New York, no sales tax.  We have received every order this winter the next day.  How can you beat that?

Thank you for making our winter a tad easier!

Five Weeks

The puppies have now become little dogs!  They are very good about using their litter box and enjoy their three meals a day.  Momma still checks in on them.  Here are some more photos.

Here is a sweet photo of Great-Grandfather, Luther with their dam, Coffee.

They also got to experience being outside for the very first time!

Please excuse the lack of the web cam at the end of the week.  We had a tragedy with one of our adult dogs, and it was just one less thing I had to do to get through.  I hope you all understand.

Godspeed, Hush

Some just steal your soul with them when they leave us, and Hush was one of them. A freak accident took her from us on Thursday. My heart is broken, my heart dog is gone.

Four Weeks

The pups are growing like weeds and are now little dogs.  They use their litter box pretty reliably to potty, keeping their papers 80% clean!  They are enjoying their meals of Eukanuba Weaning Formula, Eukanuba Large Breed Puppy Food (soaked until soft) with a splash of The Honest Kitchen Keen.  They also enjoy playing with their toys.  I say they are pretty happy puppies!

Three Week Update

The pups have now officially moved into the living room to be in the midst of all the goings on.  They also have the Puppy Sounds CD playing for them a few times a day to get them used to all different sounds and noises.  The TV is left on for them as well.

I did take these videos during the past week...
