Memorial Day shows here in Tulsa Oklahoma were fun with lots of company to share the fun.  Karen Laubengauer from Mississippi and Ruth Albano from Indiana spent 4 days along with Betty & Jack Murray from Joplin.

A Schnauzer party of 21 people held at the Houskeepers' on Saturday nite had all the makins' of a good party.

Good Sportsman Ship Award and more!

Two new awards this year, one goes to Dick & Judy for their work recognized in the Standard Schnauzer Club of America by nonimating them for the Ruth Inman Award - a very prestigious award from the Club.

Second award came from Mid Continent Kennel Club, Tulsa Ok when Judy was recognized for her sportsman like conduct and was given the award of "Good Sportsman Ship Award".  Both awards are given through nominations from membership of both Clubs. A big "thank you" goes to both Clubs.

Our boy MAX is doing well in the show circuit- taking Best of Breed several times and two (2) Group 1's.  

Ellie and her puppies are doing very well  -- almost 3 wks old now and pushing 3 pounds each, walking, hearing and trying to bark. All five of them have been placed.

Our boy Cinch is hoping to be a father to Heidi's puppies. Breeding is taking place this week and we hope for 6-8 puppies. Heidi and Cinch have their medical credentials all are good/normal. We will be taking reservations for puppies.
