My "main" breed is the Mudi, I currently have 3. I have been really taken in by these quirky dogs! I also have a white shepherd, the first breed I got as an adult.

Its all in my name,... they are my past present and will be my future. I currently have 2 retired male Bahamian Champions.

So can your Chows sustain the heat well in the Bahamas? I live in Florida and I worry that my future Chow might have a heat stroke or something, lol.

German Shepherds are my heart dogs, close second Australian Cattle dogs (both breeds for both show and work)I also have labradors for fun, and am currently searching high and low for a cocker show pup - good ones being hard to find!
Am. Cocker Spaniel has the most cut throat competition out there. If its worth the while and you have a good laugh, it might just be right for you, scene wise. I prefer Eng. Cocker Spaniel any day.

lol yep - I didn't mean the American version!! lol (I'm in England)

Lol that makes more sense. I know "the cocker spaniel" is the English version in Europe and the American version in America. I personally think Cocker is automatically the English one but I have to remember that I live in the US and not everyone thinks it is.

I'm owned by 2 Cairn terriers. (With a litter on the way!)

Eevee (left) is an almost 3 year old female Canadian Champion. She's my first conformation show dog, and she's the most delightful dog I have ever owned! Her first litter is due in a few short weeks!!

Jekyll (right) is a 7 year old pet. He's a total gentleman. happy :)


Oh yeah and Small Dog Grove, I love your Smooth Fox Terrier! I'd love to own a SFT one day, and a Russel terrier. laugh :D

GraceInGlory: Oh goodie! You must do a litter announcement on here! I crave for puppy faces and follow the progress of their lives. I remember this thread was fillied with such post and it really was a peak in their lives of breeding. Congratulations on the upcoming litter!

Haven't started showing yet as I don't have my breeds but I'm thinking of getting into Gordon Setters & Bouvier des Flandres. However, I'm finding out that Gordons aren't popular in my immediate area like the Flat-Coated Retriever. I might start there for experience and preparation for the Gordon.

Bouviers are fantastic. Best dogs I've ever owned.

It can get pretty hot here however I don't find it that of a major concern. They stay inside and they have their own fans that kept on so they can chill all day. They go outside in the morning and evening to avoid the scorch of the sun, and if they do go outside, they usually stay in the shade and i avoid any strenuous activity. As usual water is kept down 24/7. However, I've notice that coated breeds generally aren't as dense as their cousins further north. However, there are a few that do have really dense coats but seem to manage.

As a child I grew up with Border Collies, and have a soft spot for them.
But throughout my adult years I have been owned by a succession of Keeshonds. I love the temperament of Keesies, very loving and willing to please (when they are not being stubborn about something - *lol*).

Below is my current girl - Keiko

I like a variety of breeds but my fav is the Cane Corso. I also love the Canary Dog, Rottweiler, Am Staff, and many more.

I grew up being in love with German Shepherds with Jimmy Moses as my idol. He is still my idol even though I don't have GSDs. I am an all-breed handler at shows but I co-own 2 Great Danes and my Norwegian Buhund.

This is my Buhund who has lived with me for a little over 2 years.

These are my 2 Great Danes

I've been networking with breeders and now I'm looking towards Dobermans, but also Irish Setters, Gordon Setters, or German Shorthaired Pointers.

Used to show Aussies and work for a few handlers. Now that I have a family we actually let all our show dogs live out their life and unfortunately our last guy died last year so its been an empty house. Hoping to get back into showing/breeding when my youngest is around 5. Really want to get into terriers. Worked for a few handlers and always had a fondness for them.

I spent a lot of time under a dachshund breeder/mentor and finished more dachshunds (mostly wires) than I can count.
I then worked for an all breed handler for 6 years or so and got to handle several other breeds, mostly sporting dogs.

I still have my two dachshunds, one long and one wire, and also have a German Wirehaired Pointer, my breed of choice.

I love my dachshunds to death, but I'm definitely more or a sporting dog person!
I've posted pictures of my dog before but I'd be happy to post again happy :)


Lacey (mini long) and Eli (mini wire) are now 8 and 10!

Callie (GWP) is 2.


Gorgeous pups!! I love German Wire Haired Pointers they were fun to show

I have a pointer that I adopted from the shelter at 10 weeks old. (His litter's birthdate was listed and the entire litter was there, so I'm assuming this was an unplanned breeding by a BYB.) I didn't originally plan to adopt a pointer, knowing that they are quite active and that I was living in an apartment at the time, but I kept coming back to him and in the end decided he was the one! It turned out that he was a great match. He loves the outdoors as much as I do and is the perfect running partner (running up to 10 miles with me in the past.)

I currently do obedience with him. Once he earns his Graduate Open title, I think we will call it quits for obedience. I've learned so much about training with him, but I really don't have the attention/focus needed from him to go for the Utility title (i.e. signal exercise!) However, in an effort to find a new activity to do, we are dabbling with agility and also starting to learn about Nosework. I don't know if we will ever compete in agility, as he is 9, but it's always been a sport I've wanted to try, but never could find a class that worked with my work schedule until now. (I work evenings.) Nosework, on the other hand, is something I can see us being able to compete in at some point.

That's an English Pointer isn't it? Totally stunned that someone would breed a litter of them and then just dump them all in a shelter!! They are quite rare even over here in their homeland.

The Kennel Club (UK) system, which is also used by the Australian National Kennel Council[1] and in other countries, is considered the most difficult to earn a title under.
