. . . it’s Emmy Lou!
And a couple of videos:
Emmy, more formally known as C-Myste Sweetheart of the Rodeo UD, now lives in Ruidoso, New Mexico. The way these strange coincidences seem to happen, Penni ran into Phil at an Albuquerque pet supply shop just recently.
A just a little belated happy birthday to the Sweetheart litter, including Noelle’s Music, Lani’s Maggie, Traum’s sire Quincy, and Pistol, Oscar, and the rest. For those who don’t know, the litter was a bittersweet one for us. I lost my “keeper” in the litter, a little girl I truly loved, at 13 months from hyperparathyroidism. I think now that she must have had a tumor on her thyroid, though I couldn’t bring myself to do a necropsy at the time. “Sadie” had a 5 point major and placed at the 2000 national specialty in Pennsylvania.
