Yes, puppies do seem to know what to do with an iPad. This is Kipper playing with an iPad. Kipper is from our September litter of puppies.
A new litter of future Halcyon Champions was born September 26.
The litter of 12 pups includes 7 males and 5 females — keeping Pat busy with feedings and puppy checks.
Sire is GCH Asgard Quiksilver.
Dam is GCHMohner’s Legacy for Halcyon.
See the Puppy Page for more information or call Pat at 540-788-9889.
Warrenton Lifestyles Magazine focused its September issue on dogs in the Warrenton/Fauquier community. Both Pat White, Halcyon Standard Schnauzers, and Leslie Shriner, owner of CH Halcyon’s All You Need is Love, “Frodo” were interviewed about excellent breeding, conformation showing and dreams for the future.
Barn Hunting is a new, fast growing sport. Dogs hunt for (tame) rats in tubes concealed within hay bales. Recently I took CH Halcyon’s Utopia (Pia) and Halcyon’s Dancing in the Moonlight (Milly) to a fun barn hunt exercise. This was a new experience for both dogs, and both proved committed, focused ratters. Next step will be competition!
Halcyon’s Be the Change You Wish to See, “EZRA”, quickly won his Championship in limited showing by one year of age, followed quickly with multiple Best of Breed wins and a Group Placement. Ezra became a Grand Champion as a result of these wonderful wins. In September, Ezra competed at the Knickerbocker Standard Schnauzer Club Specialty show and was awarded Best of Breed! Special thanks to the Strong handling team, and to owners Sarah and Rose Miller.
