To the right is the 'badge' for my PlumRidge Training Centre "Facebook" page. That is where the Gem x Tag puppy photos are currently posted (much easier to upload bulk groups of photos).
Please visit there to see the new babies.
These two litters sired by Tag are a joint effort between myself and Tag's owner Chris Chambers, there are going to be pups not already spoken for, so feel free to contact either of us to discuss the pups in the litters!!

Since I have been very bad about updating the blog, I thought I would dig out this old photo of my Mother (standing behind me) along with myself handling her dog "Jay Jay".
My Mother has always been a Schnauzer lover. (I grew up in a house and farm full of Mini Schnauzers). However when I began handling professionally, she decided to get involved, by purchasing herself a Standard Schnauzer for herself (that I could handle for her).
This photo was taken when Jay was just barely 6 mos old. It was his VERY first show ever, and it was the National Specialty. To put it mildly the boy CLEANED UP!!
I still remember after all the other handlers congratulated me, and my mom was holding her pile of 'loot" she has won as prizes (Nationals always do give neat stuff away). She commented to me " Do you think we can get a photo of this?"
Yeah Mom we ARE getting a photo of this!!
Jay Jay went on to be a VERY successful showdog, and even was campaigned to be the #1 black Std. Schnauzer the year he was campagined. But the thing he did that by far was MORE successful, was he was my Mother's best buddy. He rode EVERYWHERE with her, he went to her retail shop, he slept on her bed, he was her 'service' dog. He was just IT ALL!!
Jay Jay has sadly passed some years ago, and he is still missed and talked about often!!
So this post is a HAPPY belated MOTHER'S Day to ALL!!

Mollie herself is an USBCHA Open Trials winner (she usually beat her own father to do it), She won over a dozen USBCHA Nursery Classes, (obviously qualifying for the USBCHA Nursery Finals). She qualified and ran at the USBCHA Finals in both Open and Nursery. As a two year old she was one of the qualifiers for the Double Lift Finals at the prestigious Bluegrass Sheepdog Trials too. Mollie is a loving and sweet house dog for her owner Chris Chambers as well.

Since we are just digging out from another winter storm here in Indiana, I thought you all would like to know that the color is out the window!! WARMTH AND LAYERS ARE THE NAME OF THE GAME!!
For the past few cold months I honestly could care less if it matches, or if the colors clash... not anywhere on my mind!! WARMTH WARMTH yeah that's what I want!!
To go out and run the dogs my attire is:
On the bottom:
Three to four pairs of socks (at least one wool, one thinsulate, and then my regular cotton ones)
FOUR (yep you read that right FOUR) pairs of thermal underware on the bottom
Thinsulate lined jeans (no not flannel, not fleece, QUILTED Thinsulate lined)
Sorel Winter snow boots (these do get changed out for waterproof hunting boots when the snow is not so deep)
On the top:
Two Thermal tops,
Two thick cotton long sleeve shirts
One Hooded sweatshirt (thanks XP Ranch I am so glad I bought these at your clinics!!)
My hooded Carhart Jacket. (I have two of these one is rated the lowest of cold temps... so I watch the weather before I go out to know which one to grab).
Plus OF COURSE
I have multiple pairs of fleece gloves (extras in the pockets at all times) so when one pair gets wet, a new goes on. (breaking ice in buckets, filling buckets, and throwing slimy balls gets those gloves wet fast).
I also have a comfy fleece collar I slide around my neck after I pull up my hooded sweathshirt. Keeps the neck all toasty warm and I can pull it up over my mouth and nose if the wind really picks up.
Now I wish I could say there is a photo of me all dressed up like a marshmellow.. but sadly "NO" there is no photo. The dogs thankfully have not mastered the camera yet (the blackmail photos I am sure they would have LOL) and no one else seems to want to brave the wind and run them with me!!
So I will leave you with the dogs enjoying their 'purple' jollyball in the snow. (Yeah it was taken in a previous snowstorm .. the camera is not liking this wind, ice, snow and cold so no great photos were take in this last snowstorm).
Stay warm and everyone PRAY for SPRING!!
