Look who is a big girl now! Miz Becky is 2 years old today!
Becky also wants to wish her sisters and brother a Happy Birthday! Hop over to Embee Cavaliers and wish her sister Molly a Happy Birthday too!
Last year at this time, Marybeth showed Becky at the Cavalier Fanciers Southern Ontario Specialty Show. Becky is shown here with the judge and is very proud of her ribbon... the competition was fierce. There was a total of one dog entered in her class; herself!
I think this period in Becky's life had an impact on her development. It also allowed me to discover something new. I love working on training with my dogs. As well, this awesome bond between Becky and Marybeth developed. You can still see how strong it is a year later. In fact when we get together, Becky gets a little miffed as she doesn't understand why Marybeth's own dogs Zoey, Mylee and Molly want her attention.
Becky has been a ray of sunshine in my life! She came to us bouncing off the walls and still has not stopped! This girl is so full of enthusiasm and life she just spurts happiness all day long. There is no question she is my girl; never leaving her Mommy's side. Unlike traitor Kodee who will run off to Dad if she hears him come home!
Exciting times are ahead for my girls! Kodee and Becky are starting Rally Obedience in a few weeks. I really miss not having the socialization (for the dogs and myself) plus learning new things that handling classes provided. I am so excited and looking forward to this new challenge. I think Rally lends really well to Cavalier's personalities. They love to please their owners and are quick to learn. Rally will be good for them to have something to focus on. Rally offers a bit of structure in obedience but in a more relaxed way. Just a taste of agility will be introduced.
Becky's friend Lacey ran straight over to wish her a Happy Birthday. And another neighbourhood pal stopped by...
Let me tell you, Kodee had an awful lot to say to this visitor! My ears are still ringing.
