Hemi and Shea Stylin’ at the PWDCA Top Twenty Event

Hemi and Shea Skinner are pictured here stylin' and profilin' at the PWDCA Top Twenty Event. This event is by invitation only and for PWDs who place in the top 20 PWDs in the United States. Hemi clearly enjoys Shea and Shea does such a great job showing Hemi to his potential. It was such fun to watch them in the ring before and during the national specialty. Hemi seemed to be smiling and he made his last tour around the show ring. Lots of great memories were made. Now that the show [...]

Winding Down the Year in the Show Ring!

Hemi and Sammie at their recent trip to Canada This past weekend was Hemi's last show for the year. Unable to attend this one, I was so excited to get the news from Sammie each evening that Hemi had gone Best of Breed! I got bit by the bug a little bit ;-) as he's been ranked in the Top Twenty from his first full month in the ring (March 2014). As each month went by, it's been an education and fun watching the rankings and how all [...]

Our Spectacular Weekend in Canada!!

Hemi waiting his turn. Hemi and Sea-cret headed north for the weekend with one of their best pals, Sammie Lewis.

They award additional points for group competition based on the placement and the number of breeds competing in the group. Hemi and Sammie did in [...]

Hemi goes Bronze (Grand Champion that is)

Yay Hemi! Best of Breed and Select Dog this past weekend and reached Bronze Grand Champion level with those wins. Hemi does his Don King impression ;-) Love this boy...he's accomplished quite a few firsts for me. He was my first Bred-By-Exhibitor Champion, which means he was shown to his original AKC Championship in a class just for breeders. It is a class that allows a breeder to honor a dog that you feel epitomizes what you are looking to produce in their breeding program. I began showing him in this [...]

Hemi celebrates his birthday with a bang!

This weekend was the local PWD club's regional specialty event, where many of the local dogs come out to compete in multiple venues. Several of the pups from Stowaway participated in the weekend competitions. Hemi was awarded an Judges Award of Merit yesterday and Best of Breed today. He went on to place 4th in the Working Group. As always Hemi is exquisitely presented by Sammie Lewis. Beckett and Cathi celebrated Beck's first Q (code for qualifying score) yesterday in Excellent JWW. Cutter came out to support her Uncle Coastie, [...]
