Holidays Season 2012

Wishing everyone a bright and spirited holiday!


The litter of TTs are all in their new homes. It's wonderful to watch the pairing up of a new companion family with their little furry friend. Each little TT is ready to make his contribution to the joy and happiness of the commitment. Max, Murphy, Ryder, and Beau are all going to try to do their parts.


Happily reporting two new champions here at Kiara. Naldo, our golden boy, earned his AKC championship the day before Passion, our silver gal, earned hers.  Strike a pose!

New CH Kiara All Fired Up

They have joined their family in the "Hall of Fame" in the Kiara Website. But their contribution will not end there. Q-Tip and his sister, Louise, have also been steppin' out on the show circuit to earn their majors. But with the change in the local show scene, looks like we will be at home until after the 1st.

Taking a rest before entering the ring.
Miss Sugar takes a break from the show scene to enjoy a walk with human-mom, Marie; I'm sure Mike is on the other side of the lens.

Once again this year I have put together a little YouTube video of the photo contributions from the various TTs in the larger family that have been sent to me. I hope you can take a moment to view it. I enjoy putting it together. I hope it brings the same gentle smile to you that it brings to me each time I watch it. Enjoy.

And there have been a few up-dates since the last posting:

Dear Dennis,

It's been a while, but I wanted to send along an update to let you know Felix is doing great!  He is up to 15.5 lbs and it looks like he's growing a little adult coat over his head and shoulders. He has learned how to "sit" and enjoys visits to the dog park to play with other dogs (he LOVES to play with other dogs). He is the center of attention wherever we go and everyone always says how beautiful he is, how great he is with people and dogs, and wants to know all about him. 

Here are a few more photos, including one of him playing with his "golden-doodle" best friend, Tali.



I thought you'd like this picture of Baudelaire. 


It's always a joy catching up with members of the family. Love seeing them grow into themselves and certainly love to see them as adults. Thank you for sharing.

The other joyous news is from the culmination of several years invested in Rosie, Nivels Mint Rose, our Swedish import.  She had a litter of pups.  You can read about it in the "In The Spotlight" section of the website. They are all beautiful and the beginning of a fourth, distinctive fork of the Kiara breeding program outlined in the "Philosophy" part of the website. The photo above as the are today. The photo below: the day they were born.

And as the holiday season spins in, I wish all a special season filled with peace, joy and happiness.

More later.
