The Dogs

Rumble

Rumble is our oldest dog here now. She’s retired, but happily sleeps on the big bed in the den, which the others respect. She’s earned her “throne”.

Rumble is pointed toward her Championship, but as Dan and I got older, showing was difficult (we have had numerous surgeries), and she was never shown enough in her prime to finish. We kept two of her daughter’s – Dahlia and Rose

Dahlia

Sweet Dahlia is Rumble’s daughter. Some may find her registered name odd (Blue Knight Black Dahlia). Dahlia’s are my favorite flower, and I’ve always been intrigued by the story of the Black Dahlia, and saddened that a beautiful woman was left as she was after her murder. Dalhia’s name is a tribute to a beautiful flower, and a woman who deserves to be remembered for what she endured. It is only fitting that our Dahlia grew to be a beautiful girl with a gentle spirit.

Rose

Rose is a sister to Dahlia, daughter of Rumble. She too is named after a flower (Black Rose). Rose is silly, impish, and lovable. Her lovely head never ceases to please us.

Tush

Tush is the daughter of Luna (http://blueknightlabs.com/luna/). We kept two daughters out of Luna (Tush and Gilda), a year apart in age. Tush is the quiet one <smile>. Page and photos coming as soon as we can get them up.

Gilda is a full sister to Tush, but is one year younger.

2020 brought about many changes here. Dogs that you previously saw on this page have moved on to new homes:

Dogs that we have retired, who now live with family or friends:

Miley was supposed to stay with us forever!

In the first weeks of the Covid Lockdowns, 2020, I asked my Step-Mother if she was doing okay with being completely isolated. Her answer was “as long as I have my cats and the dog, I’m just fine!” Days later, her old dog unexpectedly died. She was devastated. She suggested that she would go to the shelter, but the shelter was closed because of Covid. Her loneliness was palpable. I looked at Dan, and we both agreed.. we had two old/retired girls, and the one most suited was Miley (such a gentle soul, and loved cats). So, Miley became an only dog just 35 min away. We see her frequently. She’s very happy. This photo was taken just a few weeks later, after a bath, thus the puddle under her. The blow-dryer didn’t quite penetrate the fur on her bottom.

Mariah

Mariah suffered a Pyometra (severe uterine infection) and had a life-saving emergency spay. 2020 – the year that just kept on giving… My sister, brother-in-law, and Niece, had just lost her 13 year old dog, leaving them broken-hearted, so, Mariah filled the hole in their hearts, and loves being an only dog!
