This is very belated... here is the official show pic of Norman with handler Cheryl Mika in Atl from August 29 when he was WD and Bos for 5pts. I tried to retouch the bkgd a bit and added the BOS ribbon to Judge Bolus' hand as it was not in the orig. photo. I think that Norman looks very much like his dad "tex" (grangefield Rob Roy) in this picture... well except Tex is red...On a sad note, out 12yr old male kitty was mauled and killed in my mother's garage last Sunday. Dasher died in my arms. It was just awful, and we are still looking for the dogs.The terrible irony here is that Dasher just loved dogs (well our dogs...NICE dogs).Norman is still looking for his buddy.On a happier note... Norman is entered in both Atlanta cluster shows the last two weeks of October. Seven shows in nine days. He will be one tired puppy!


  1. Oh... I am so, so sorry about your cat. That... that's horrible. I can't even imagine what I'd do if one of my cats was killed like that. :( I'm so sorry.

    On the higher note, congrats on the win -- Norman is really growing up, wow!

  2. Poor kitty -- I hope you find the dogs that did it -- and throttle their owners.

    I hope Norman has a great southern swing with much success.

  3. Penni...I am more determined to find the owners than the dogs. It is so infuriating that people are so irresponsible. One of the dogs had a collar.We think somebody keeps them contained but they let them go and let them run every now and then.

  4. I am so sorry about your cat. That is just horrible.

    On the happier message, best of luck at your shows. Here's hoping Norman gets his 2nd major!

  5. I am so sorry about Dasher. How horrible and how irresponsible of the the dog owners.
