Up again at 1:00 am to do my equal rights feeding supervision. Everyone looks good. Dora just rolls her eyes at me as though to ask what I am doing at this ridiculous hour of the morning. Checked again at 5 am, then up for the day at 6:20. Lots of folks checking in for Thanksgiving today and I’ve got to be ready!
While I am working, I will leave you with the introduction to Nicky, father of our Treasure, our Pieces of Eight. What can I say–I’ve watched too much Pirates of the Carribean.
“Nicky” is a German import whose father, Int CH No
Doubt of Malton finished in 12 countries and was the 2008 World Show winner.
In Fall, 2009 I traveled to Germany to the von Garnsee kennel, where my signature dog of the 1980’s stayed for a year, CH Stony UD. I had been corresponding with them for months about their new litter. After 10 days, 4 airports, and 6 train stations, we made it there and back again. I’ll never forget my navigation of the train stations with Nicky, his crate, and three pieces of luggage!
Int CH Ikarus von Garnsee entered Canada for the first time in April, 2010 earning the first half of the Canadian Championship in one weekend and a Terrier Group First! He finished his American Championship handled by Allison Sunderman in Fall, 2010.
His first puppies will be two years old in Fall, 2012 and they are doing very well at many different endeavors, including Champions of the Heart. We feel very fortunate to have Nicky here with us!
