Hi, My name is Rex

I followed Ruffi home from the States and I'm pretty cute!

I've got beautiful structure and movement for a little guy and maybe one day I will grow up to be a show dog

Norma and I would like to officially welcome Chanctonbury Wild Abandon aka Rex.  Rex is growing up at Brinklow Hill with Lollipop, Nika, and Geordie.  We're very much looking forward to seeing how this little man develops.  So far he's everything we possibly could have hoped for, yes even for me.. blenheim suit and all! ;)  A special thank you to his breeder Janet Beck for entrusting us with his care and to Carol Rose for letting him come to Canada.

Embee Fam Jam 2016

Thank you to everyone who came out to Embee Fam Jam 2016, we had a great time as always!  A special thank you to my sister for running the photo booth for me.  It was a very hot day and our silly photos reflect that.  Enjoy some of the photos of our crazy cavalier family, you can sure tell many of them are closely related with similar expressions and mannerisms!   Can't wait for next year.

Catching up

Our very important post on Water Intoxication is being shared all over Facebook today and I'm thrilled that dog owners are recognizing it's importance.  The goal isn't to keep our dogs out of the water completely, it's to keep a watchful eye on how they are playing/how much water is being ingested in the process and following the cardinal rule of everything in moderation.  It's also inspired me to get an update up, we'll see how long that inspiration lasts ;)     

The Little Lolly's aren't so little anymore.  They've made their way to new homes and are taking part in all kinds of adventures.  We're missing them, especially since finding out that our Ebby girl is not going to have puppies this summer.  We are thrilled though to have added some wonderful new owners to our Embee family.  Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Embee Fam Jam.  I haven't sent out invites yet but will get them out in the next little while.

We've also been busy showing a wild crew of black and tans and having a very successful spring and early summer!

Our gorgeous Embee's Mischief in Maui "Tigs" owned by my good friends Chris and Paul, made his official show debut this spring.  In only a few shows he's 1 point short of his Canadian Championship and won Reserve Winners Dog at the Cavalier Fanciers of Southern Ontario specialty show.  So proud of this boy!

His sister, Embee Jewelcroft Midnight Luau "Chai" also obtained back to back Winners Bitch majors, under breeder judge Elaine Whitney and all breed judge Dr. Gail Forsythe at the Monarch Kennel Club for her first points towards her Canadian Championship. Chai lives with Bonnie Sands at Jewelcroft Cavaliers and she's doing a fantastic job with her.  Our Chai baby has grown up!

Our Embee Brinklow Fenton, CGN also made his show debut this spring but his brags are more about Cavalier health than show ring wins.  We're incredibly proud of him for being MRI'd this spring and having a beautiful MRI scan just like his parents and grandparents and a few great grandparents if you want to get technical ;)  CM and SM clear, second generation.  His little round cerebellum is a work of art and I'm thrilled to have another generation of MRI tested Cavaliers to move forward with.

A rare glamour shot for this active and smart boy!

And the highlight of my year so far, our gorgeous Riff Raff girl (CH Embee's Raising the Stakes, CGN) won Best of Opposite sex at the Cavalier Fanciers of Southern Ontario Specialty show under Jenny Macalpine.  I couldn't be more proud to have owned and bred such a special girl.  

Win photo!

The weekend before she won her first Grand Championship points under Dr. Gail Forsythe at the CFSO Booster show at Monarch Kennel Club.  Dr. Gail Forsythe was one of the most kind and thorough judges I've ever shown to.  She took her time to evaluate everyone and made my day when after our win wanted to know more about my girls (Ruffi and Chai) and complimented them on being beautiful wholecolours.  I agree.. they are :)  It's very rare that any judge at an all breed shows takes time to give feedback and it was just so appreciated.   Not such a great photo of me or the judge but Ruffi looks gorgeous so I cropped it!

Next task.. update my poor top pages.  Such a neglected site lately. A little tlc should help.

Family resemblance

I've been working on my CKCSCC yearbook ad and decided that I really needed to get some new photos of everyone.  It's always a process but I'm never sorry after I get them done.  Very pleased so far, the brick wall of our house has made the perfect backdrop for black and tans!

Can you see the family resemblance?  I sure can, not only in looks but everyday in personality too.

Champion Riff Raff

Ruffi has some exciting news to share!

At one of the last big shows of the year held at the International Centre, she officially became known as CH Embee's Raising the Stakes, CGN.  Riff Raff finished her Championship in grand style going Best of Opposite sex over a very competitive entry including 4 female specials, the judge was Desmond Murphy.  It was such a large entry because our regional club having a booster, so not only did she finish her championship she got to take home some wonderful swag too!  She is the third black and tan Champion from our Molly and I couldn't be more thrilled.

Ruffi says we've still got lots of work to do because she wants to finish her rally novice title and possibly do some more agility when the weather warms up again. What a life this girl lives.

And I adored her from the start.
