Libra begins her show career

This is Blue Run's Libra from the Zodiac litter on the occasion of her first ring appearance when she surprised me with a major win. We were just hoping she'd stand still for the judge on this first outing. The judge commented "It's nice to see a Porty with good bone in the ring." Libra cleans up nice and hopefully lots of other judges will appreciate her exuberant personality. The handler says she's bouncing around like a rubber ball showing "too much" enthusiasm for the judges to get a good look at her.

Lilly"s and Chase's Brood born 10/18/2012

These are the handsome  eight week old puppies produced by my girl CH Blue Run's Red Robin (Lilly) and GCH Kimlyn's Catch a Dream (Chase). The independent evaluation of this litter suggested that 6 of the eight were show quality/prospects. All of these pups were placed in local homes with enthusiastic young families. When you have this many high quality pups, it's nice to keep them close by so one can watch them develop.
