2012 Summer Newsletter – Call for submissions!

The SUMMER issue will be assembled around the end of August and published in early September!

It will feature our August National Specialty in Brockville!

DEADLINE: Let’s make it August 28, ten days after the Specialty, by which time hopefully the winners will have rec’d their Show Pics and duly emailed them to me! Major winners pics will be included, and some sort of collage(s) will be prepared. (That is assuming I RECEIVE good pics from amateur photographers who will be in Brockville!)

The Specialty aside — here are OTHER areas in which I hope to receive items:

  • Noticeboard! This is Show and Trial Season. I expect there will be new champions and titles to announce, and some otherwise Major Performance events about which to brag. As is customary, I will include a small photo of each TT.
  • Introduction of New TTs or New Puppies. (and a photo)
  • Nikki Sinclair welcomes entries for Sawyer’s Blog, for TTs BY TTs. See last issue and re-read the initial blogs.
  • Nikki also welcomes some TT Art Treasures described and photographed. Following the format in the spring issue, we suggest two per participating member.
  • Don’t forget categories of Humour, Smiles, TLC Tips, good ‘dog’ reading, club comments, expressions of concern or praise, whatever.¬† It’s YOUR newsletter. ūüôā

Copy the deadline, please, and “Think Newsletter” as August winds down.

Hope to hear from you all soon!

Just for fun…

Since we could never afford to purchase one of these, we jumped on the opportunity to¬†test out the Fit Fur Life Treadmill at “Pet Fun Fest” in¬†Downsview Park, Toronto.¬† (February 13, 2011)¬† Mojo seemed to like it!!

Anyone out there use a treadmill with their TT’s?

Ruffles is Twenty!

Today, January 19th, honours a very special birthday.  Our wonderful boy Ruffles turns 20 years old!     He was my first dog since childhood, and I thank his breeder Joyce Ayotte for allowing me to take him home.
(See attached photo of the moment Ruffles and I met!)
I could write a novelette about all his happy years, and the immense significance of his arrival in our lives.  Who could have imagined how involved in TTs Penny would become?!  And it all started with the beautiful, loyal Ruffles.
To mark this milestone, Ron and I took him for a portrait sitting with Wendy Beard of Muddypawz.¬†¬† It was a challenge to photograph such a senior fellow.¬† Wendy got some fine shots, and provided the following site addresses where six of them can be seen in various ways of display .¬† Below is Wendy’s and my Invitation to enjoy a few Ruffles Photos.
Happy Birthday!   to CH Bootiff Ruffles of Kashmir, CGC, Agility Novice Jumper.
God bless my Grand Old Man.

Grooming Questions & Tips?!

New category just added to our Blog… “Grooming“!¬† (Thank you to Nikki Sinclair for the great suggestion!)

As we all know, hair care is a major part of owning a TT.¬† Whether it’s a full coat we’re tending to, or a simple puppy cut…it all takes some kind of effort to achieve a matt-free, shiny finish.

Use this section for questions, tips and thoughts about things like grooming, brushes, shampoos, conditioners, …the list goes on!
