Four of the boys from the Zoey x Mozi litter came over for a play date. They had a blast! Of course they had to play in the dirt spot in the yard. I am sure their owners were giving baths went they went home. We love to see them growing up and doing well with their families. Here are some pictures from that day. We had Link (Blue Collar), Cato (Purple), Odell (Orange) and Ozzy (Green).
Scarlett and ZsaZsa from our Amber & Brody litter had adventures in January too!
CH Amber Trace Burning Up The Way JC (Scarlett) earned 4 more points towards her Grand Champion (GCH) at the Brooksville shows. She only needs 2 more points to finish this title. Scarlett also passed her hips and elbows testing with Good and Normal ratings by OFA.
Amber Trace Bella Ragazza at Avanti (ZsaZsa) earned points towards her FastCat title. Check out these great pictures by Mark Baer at that event. ZsaZsa also passed her hips and elbows testing with Good and Normal ratings by OFA. Awesome news for the sisters!
Amber Trace SoUnique at Ropasa (Zynga) from our Zoey & Mozi litter had her ring debut in Brooksville in the 4-6 month puppy class. She earned a 1st place and a Group 3 the first week of Brooksville and a 1st place and Group 4 the second week. She was full of bounce and wiggles and kisses for everyone! Just what we wanted. Having fun was the goal. Her owner, Robyn, and I are happy with the loads of attitude this girl has!
All the Zoey & Mozi puppies have found their forever homes. Reports from their new homes are all positive! All the puppies have outgoing and inquisitive personalities and get along with everyone they meet. Having happy, healthy puppies placed in wonderful homes is just what I wish for every litter. I hope to see Zynga (Pink Girl), Link (Blue Boy), Cato (Purple Boy), Odell (Orange Boy) and Dex (Yellow Boy) in the show ring one day.
Bill and I spent a weekend at the NLCC event (AKC National Lure Coursing Competition) in Ocala. We were there as host members for our club. None of our dogs competed in the event. We worked hard but enjoyed watching all the sighthounds competing in this annual event for the title of the 2018 National Lure Coursing Best In Event.
We took Scarlett to 3 days of shows in Ocala too and she placed each day for 5 more points towards her AKC Grand Championship. She earned a Best of Opposite along with a Best Owner Handled and two Select placements. She hadn't been in the ring since June so it was nice to get her back out there. Her sister ZsaZsa showed 2 days and went Winner's for 2 more points towards her Championship. I was happy to get to see her win! It was the first time I was able to be there. ZsaZsa and her owner, Raul, have won 5 times in a row. That team is on a roll!
Here is Amber (left) and ZsaZsa (right) hanging out at the NLCC and the picture below is Zynga who was also there hanging out and meeting lots of dogs and people.
Zsa Zsa (Amber Trace Bella Ragazza at Avanti) and her owner Raul showed 3 days in Arcadia, FL picking up points towards her conformation championship. They were in the ribbons all three days going WB, BOW, BOBOH on Friday, WB, BOW, BOBOH on Saturday,and WB on Sunday. We are proud of this great team!
Zoey's puppies arrived on September 5th. We have 9 puppies and Mom and puppies are doing well. Zoey is a great mom and had an easy delivery. Puppies are all healthy with nice ridges and lovely colors. Many thanks to Sherry, Mozi's owner, and Jeff and Kim of Desert Song Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Mozi's breeders, for being such wonderful partners in this pairing. We are all so excited to watch these puppies grow up.
Scarlett received two Select placements for more points towards her Grand Champion title.. ZsaZsa showed well and placed in her classes. Both are maturing nicely and settling down in the ring. A little less wiggles and a little more standing still this time around! The girls had some time to hang out at the house too. I think Amber enjoyed seeing ZsaZsa . They look and act so much alike!Amber left and ZsaZsa right.

Zoey earned her BCAT title from the AKC. The title is for earning 150 points in the Fast Cat events. The Fast Cat is a 100 yard straight run chasing a Lure. The dogs are timed and the time is converted to points. She had lots of fun!
Amber did not get pregnant so we do not have puppies at this time. We were so excited about this litter and are so disappointed it didn't work out. We will post our future plans on our Puppies page as we make them.
Amber has been bred and we are hoping for puppies in early March. For information on this exciting match, please visit our Puppies page. It will be another month or so before we can confirm pregnancy.
