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.
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.
A HALCYON RECORD!
Halcyon’s Born to Run (“Gabby”) entered three dog shows in Atlanta in early August. Gabby was Best of Winners on Friday for a five point major; Best of Opposite Sex on Saturday for another 5 points; and finished her AKC Championship on Sunday winning Best of Breed! Gabby lives with Stephanie & Ben Blanks. Following her record-setting championship, Gabby relaxed in the pool.
