Well, apologies for posting after only a fair few months to say that Zoot's puppies have come and mostly gone (we kept one of them), and in the meantime, Katie has been in the show ring a few times and picked up some points which we're really happy about given that she's only just 7 months even now.
To be honest, I'm way more current on the Instagram page that you see by clicking here: TexangalsTMTs
In a couple of weeks' time, we'll be hitting the northbound highway for the Manchester Terrier national specialty in Kalamazoo. Katie will show in bred-by, whereas Zoot's keeper, Diego, will still be too young for anything but Beginner Puppy. I've decided to take along Granny Bonnie for a couple of fun classes like Brood Bitch and Brace, just because I'm not sure when there will next be two of Bonnie's puppy in the ring at the same show. This year, it will be Trish, co-owned with Jerri Gillean of Go West Performance Manchesters (Washington state), and Cooper, co-owned with Barbie Munafo of Lone Oak Kennels (Kentucky).
Trish, by the way, has just achieved her BCAT title for accruing 150 points in the sprinter event called FastCat. Who knew a diddy gal like Trish could run so fast?!!!
Or, maybe we should have known? Her mama is quite something on the flat.
And finally, you heard it here first - yes, even before Instagram or Facebook - that Zoot has just come back from the stud dog's house and, all being well, is due around the 9th of July. Here she is, savoring a yak cheese chew.
