Olivia and Sister Sophia Won Big on August 31

Olivia reports from the east:

"I'm writing to tell you about how my sister's and my angoras have rocked the tables on August 31. My sister took RIS in show A youth under Mary-Ellen Stamens and I took RIS A open under Matt Bishop. Unfortunately, we were the only angoras at the show.  Both our does are homebreds from our lines that we have been working on for many years with a little help from our mentors, so we have a great amount of joy showing these girls. I'm sure you know the rush of joy you get by seeing homebreds win big! I wish I got more photos from the day, but I was busy being a writer and learning all about Dutch from Kaitlyn Conklin. Kaitlyn's gorgeous and very well behaved Britannia petite took BIS." 

We thank Olivia for sharing the beautiful photos. Enjoy.

Mid Autumn Festival 2019

Today is the Mid Autumn Festival on the lunar calendar.   Normally the animal that is associated with this festival is our favorite: Rabbit.   See the posts from the past:

2019 is the Year of Pig, and little piggy wants to celebrate the Mid Autumn Festival as the rabbit.

These are the words on the lower right corner.

Wison Passes AKC Puppy Class

Casey says:

This is Pinedell's A Big Hunk O'Love, nicknamed Wilson.   He passed the AKC Star puppy test with flying colors.
Isaura was his rock and came to all but one class.  Wilson is a week shy of 6 months old.   It was a 7-week class to learn all the beginning commands and getting socialized.   Now Wilson is on to the AKC Good Citizen class to learn more obedience.
Wilson's first conformation dog show is September 21 at Dixon.   We have a lot of fun with him, we love him to pieces.

A Handmade Birthday Card

Carolyn has a recent birthday and received birthday wishes.

The card is a handmade by Carolyn's sister who is an artist.

Knowing that Carolyn loves bunnies, each bunny is hand painted then cut to be put into the hand painted background.

It's a pop up card, each layer is made with love and care.

Show Carriers?

The Petaluma show is being held in a pole barn.  It's common to see carriers on the stand with things on top or under the stands.

The judging tables would be on the sides and the carriers in the middle.

This is an unusual "carrier", a wagon with three Lops lounging in it.  Is it a carrier?
