Waiting for puppies to be born is the slowest passage of time in the universe. We are expecting a litter on October 12th, give or take a day as Mother Nature always does.
CH Dillon's Eye Of The Storm CA was bred to CH Jalyn Simply Irresistible Alisaton. This will be our "Nash X Ali" litter. We are expecting some very nice blacks and reds in this breeding.
Memorial Day is set aside to remember the brave men and women who gave all, literally laid down their lives for our great country.
In October of 2008 I had the great pleasure of playing a small part in bringing the Centennial Celebration of the Doberman Pinscher to the DPCA National Convention in Topeka KS.
Please take a moment, 5 minutes from your busy day, to watch this video. It is the finale of the awards ceremony that honored many WWII Veterans.
The Battle Hymn Of The Republic set to the background of the film always brings a tear to my eye and chills of pride for what is still the greatest place on earth to live, The United States Of America.
Thank you to all of our Armed Forces members for your sacrifices to preserve our freedom.
GCH Dillon's Zipper Ripper CD RA CGC ROM who is also known as our lovable Zeus made a splash in his first North American Dock Diving competition. On May 13th we took a little trip to Georgia National Fairgrounds in Perry, GA for some good old fashioned fun in the pool. Zeus has been happy around water since he was a little pup paddling around the pool in a life vest. He gets pretty enthusiastic about jumping off a boat into the lake.
NADD requires 5 successful jumps to earn a title in each division. We had 3 successful jumps that weekend in the Novice division which is distance of up to 10ft. Over 10ft goes into Junior division.
In the next few weeks we expect to earn that Novice title. This is a really fun sport for dogs of all breeds. Excitement and the crowd gets the dogs revved up to jump!
Congratulations to Susan Habel and UKC CH Dillon's Live For Today, a.k.a. Jax. Susan and Jax earned their AKC Beginner Novice and AKC Companion Dog titles this weekend in addition to the Rally Obedience titles he already has. Jax is out of GCH Dillon's Evening The Odds Niklby CD RA CGC (Cobby) and Sheeba DiAltobello. Jax is Susan's first performance dog. They have worked very hard and learned from every experience along the way. Jax puts me in mind of his sire every time I see that face and those eyes. Homes and owners like Susan are a breeder's dream. It's a perfect match.
Please take a moment to watch this video. We must always remember what a wonderful determination our dogs have to please us. Just doing their job can be the difference between life and death.
With great honor they serve and protect. https://youtu.be/903Owd8gq4o
