Kris made me promise not to tell until after the Duluth show. About a month ago in a series of events too mind boggling to comprehend, we got two ruby boys Still not sure how it happened, but the opportunities presented themselves not 2 weeks apart and, being afflicted with the ruby addiction, we nodded our heads and here they are.
This is Chico. He is about a year old and came to us from a breeder in the UK. It took him about 1 day and he made himself at home with us. He is absolutely georgeous with a ton of coat. We would have loved to show him at Duluth, but there was no way to get all the paperwork done between here and the UK. We had him heart cleared at Duluth and expect the rest of the paperwork from AKC in the next couple weeks. Can't wait to start showing him.
This is Grant. He is about 7 months old and came to us from a breeder out east. He and Deuce have become inseperable and play ALL the time! We showed him in Duluth and on Saturday he took Reserve!! I really did not expect that from him because he is still young and immature. What really thrilled us was that the judge told Kris he was the nicest puppy he had seen in a while and to be sure to bring him back to him when he filled out.
This is Grant and Chico at Lake Superior ready to see if they like swimming and cooling off in the lake.
"Hey, we kind of like this water; it's the biggest water dish we've ever seen!"
"Nothing like a cool dip in the afternoon. Can we do this tomorrow? Maybe my buddy Chico will come out in the deep water with me."
Sorry about the one oversize picture; must have forgotten to resize. The photographer that did Anna and Cooper's glamour shots was at the Duluth show, so we had him do Chico and Grant. The proofs look really great and will post the pictures when they come.
