Goodbye 2010, Welcome 2011!

Wow the last post of 2010! What a wonderful year I had, so many wonderful things... BUT the most important was having my Beli boy for another year! Always my heart dog and best friend but also the longest living dog I've ever had and in FABULOUS shape still, I feel like the luckiest person alive (and maybe I am:-))) Otherwise, I finished my 4th HX dog and second BBE HX, Abby, who also produced a lovely litter that I am so proud of at 4.5 months.

Remy (Raglans Ratatoullie) while he is going through some funny growth stages at the moment I just love him. Wonderful temperment and such a fun guy to be around.

Remy front 4.5 months, what a pretty boy!

And then there is Dory (Raglans Just Keep Swimming) Lovely girl who is so much like her mother, yes she is having a bad hair day:-)) So balanced and nice she had to stay though.

Rosy also made her mark on the year with her BBE 1st at the 2010 CWCCA Nationals. While I was not able to trial her this year, next year will be her year in the herding arena. And then there is my little Sally, puppies were not in her immediate future but she has taught me why I enjoy my dogs. She has reiterated again and again why I enjoy breeding, training and exhibiting Cardigan Welsh Corgis! I love that little bitch no matter how many times I have to tell her not to eat live chickens:-))) Evy turned 7 this year which is a milestone for me as she is from my first litter and is my first BBE HX, while she never finished her Ch she has proven her worth on the farm and continues to be an enlightening dog in herding training;Evy certainly inherited her fathers heart!
I did have to say goodbye to Laura and Wish and of course LauraXBeli puppies and AbbyXTigger puppies but they are all in such wonderful homes!
Of course there were a few disappointments such as another year without starting school and loosing my Grandma Hill recently. A new year brings hope and closure though. I have a lot to look forward to in the New Year, school, the CWCCA Nationals in Houston, trialling my dogs and who knows what else!
So after this long winded post.... HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone! I look forward to a wonderful and fruitful 2011!


  1. Thanks for sharing your year with us. Sorry about the recent loss of your grandma. May she rest in peace.

  2. I think the growth stage is called, I've Got Grown-Up Legs and a Puppy Body!
