A bulging belly...

It is very hard to see how large Lacey's belly actually is. It certainly is not as large as Abby's, but she definitely has more than a few pups in here.

Only 2.5 weeks to go!

Zsa Zsa's First Point!

A big thanks to my friend Bonnie for handling Zsa Zsa to her first point today. With this being only her 3rd show and zero handling classes, we are very proud of our baby girl!

This may be far away but I am spreading the word...

I stumbled across this blog this morning thanks to Fully Vetted.

This dog that is up for adoption looks like a Cardi to me.

Though he is very far away from me personally, as in Tijuana, Mexico, they are trying to get him state side. With the wonders of the internet, I hope we can find him his HOME.

Belly bump

Lacey is sporting her belly bump while relaxing in the yard. Sabrina is being her mentor through the pregnancy process.

Less than 4 weeks to go.

Luther Cookies

We have our annual Craig Family Reunion this Sunday and every family brings a dish to share with the crowd. This year my sister Donna, from the Goldman side, was wonderful enough to help me bake! To showcase our small family segment of Craigs, we made Luther Cookies!

We made lots so we can freeze half to bring to James' Retirement Party.

Puppies confirmed!

Lacey is confirmed pregnant! Her anticipated due date is August 12. We are very excited!

Words of wisdom

Actions speak louder than words. You can tell me all you want, but it's blah blah blah until I actually see it for myself.

New Element Bling

I saw an orange Element with "The Great Pumpkin" across the back which made me think that mine is my "Little Red Wagon". I had the Sign Barn make me this...

What are your favorite crates for your Element?

I am looking at getting crates with more ventilation. My preferred crates are Central Metal's corgi crate, but they are out of my budget at the moment. Are there other wire crates that can be stacked safely that won't break the budget?

I currently use 2 - Varikennel 300s and if I need to bring a couple more along, I can stack 2 - 200s on top for the smaller kids.

Has anyone used Kennelaire's plastic crates? They have much more ventilation than Varikennels. I do know that plastic gets brittle with age, but my old VKs seem sturdier.

I appreciate your input!

New Champion, New Silver ROM, New Gold ROM!

If you haven't already read the news on Julie's blog, Honor-Bug finished today!! THANK YOU JULIE FOR EVERYTHING!!

This gave daddy Dreamer his ROM GOLD. (We miscounted on my post earlier this year - he needed one more point.)

And our beloved Demi is now ROM SILVER!

As some of you may or may not know, Bug was supposed to live with a dear friend of ours, Rose McGathy. Rose was lost to lung cancer. She will be gone 3 years on July 15th. What a wonderful person Rose was and we still miss her.

I know Rose & Demi are smiling down on us from heaven.

Julie was kind enough to let the original ownership of myself, Rose and Rita stay on Bug until he finished. I wanted Rose's name on his Championship Certificate. When Bug is official with the AKC as a Champion, we will transfer him into the ownership of Julie & I.

Thank you again Julie for making this happen for all of us!
