Bacon won the Bred-By class & then went BEST OF WINNERS for the major which finished his Championship!

5-2-2014 to 5-4-2014
Fun weekend at the dog show.
Barb from Michigan and Nancy from Indiana came to Wisconsin for the Badger Shows in Jefferson WI. Majors in the bitches all weekend long and Bacon was the single boy entry.
I did not show Bacon and instead showed Bounce as her owner Luci was in school. Bounce decided I was play mom and did not do so good with me in the show ring, but she sure had a good time! She was 3rd in the group and Jazzy, owned by Nancy Tibett was Winners bitch, which finished her Championship. Jazzy is a Bully (CH Temora Bully For You) granddaughter!
Bacon, (Temora Say It With Bacon) from the bred-by class was Best of Breed! Since he beat the 2 Specials entered, it gave him a 5 point major!
Tera (Temora Southern Comfort) was 3rd in the class
Bounce (Temora Viva La Vida) was 4th in the class
Luci was entered in a Special competition for Juniors. She did not make the finals, but she is #1 in our book!
Bacon was once again Best of Breed from the bred-by class which gave him a 4 point major, he now needs 3 single points to finish his AKC Championship.
Tera was WB for the 3 point major!
Bounce was 3rd in the class.
GREAT weekend for all of us and it was a good time being with fellow exhibitors.
This is what it is all about, having fun, showing your dog against OTHER Breeders dogs, being competitive and then going out at night and having a good time!

4-5-2014 to 4-6-2014
We have had our fair share of excitement around here the last couple days!

I am a Responsible Breeder.

Do I have your attention yet?

If you belong to PETA or HSUS, you will be screaming at the page about what a bad person I am, because I am a breeder.

I don't care. You are not even a thought in my head while I play, feed or love my dogs.

You are not foremost in my mind when I whelp a litter of puppies in my home, clean them, place them near their mom to make sure they nurse.
I don't think of you when I sleep on the couch that first week to be near mom and puppies.

You are not, nor have you ever been, on my mind.

I am sure that "people" like me are on your mind all the time. Do you have a dog? If not, you don't know what it's like to have one sleep in your bed, snuggled next to you. You do not know the feeling you get when you are blue, and your dog lays his head on your lap and looks at you with love that is unconditional. You wouldn't know what it feels like to have a dog work with you, not because it has to, but because it WANTS to.
What a miracle it is to have that bond that comes with loving a dog.

As a breeder, I stand up and shout, "I AM A BREEDER AND PROUD OF IT!" I choose to breed my dogs. I love them, teach them, work with them, and watch them grow from puppies to adults. Those that I do not keep are placed into loving homes that are wanting a purebred dog.

Kudos to all who want a purebred dog and do not believe the hype that PETA and HSUS put out in the media!

As a breeder, I stand up not only for myself, but other breeders who feel the same way. Breeding is NOT a crime, nor is it an act I take lightly. I feel responsible for every life I help bring into this world.

I laugh at the miracles, cry with the tragedies, and marvel when even one puppy that I have helped bring into this world is all that I would want for the breed I love so much.

I remember the parents, the grandparents, the great-grandparents, and many more generations, and I am overjoyed to have had them in my life.
I am truly blessed to know them, love them, and cherish them.

You toy with us, thinking you bring fear to our hearts. My fear is not of you, but whether a dog that may be sick, will be okay.

You contemplate your next move against us. I contemplate whether one dog ate another's food while I was not looking.

I have a life. It revolves around my family and dogs. Dogs have taught my children that affection does not have limitations.
They also taught them compassion.

Do you have a family? What are you teaching them?

I am a breeder, not just any breeder, but a Responsible Breeder.
I am proud to breed, own, and love purebred dogs.
