Tessa just turned a year old this month. She is working deligently to make her debut in the show ring. She has an exceptional dark steel blue coat and rich golds, and a soft eye. I think she may do very well. I can't wait to get her out there.


Vegas delivered 2 beautiful girls late yesterday, 7/30/10. Both pups weighed 6 1/8 oz and both are doing exceptionally well. They are just beautiful. Sutton is the daddy.

One of girls that I was growing coat on to show as an adult suddenly gained 3.5 lbs in less than 3 months. Thinking somehow she was bred I had x-rays and took her to a vet. They found nothing. I was told she was fat, put her on a diet and give her exercise. This was back in January. Since that time I did control her eating, walked her and made sure she was getting enough exercise. Her weight now 9.9 lbs ( she used to weigh 6 lbs soaking wet) is affecting her breathing.....she grunts and groans and carrys on. Again concerned because we thought she was coming into season, she bled and swelled just 2 days and poof.....stopped. She has done this twice since January. I took her back to the vets and told him I wanted a thyroid test done.
He felt she had pyo.......she just turned 2 years old in May. Convinced she had an infection I agreed to having other bloodwork done as well. I kept saying she did not have an infection. I was right, no infection and a thyroid level of .3. It should be up over 1.4-3.4 to be normal. The only symptoms was the weight gain, however she does have dark pigment in her skin.
The following are signs and symptoms of hypothyroid.
Lethargy/mental dullness, Hair loss, Weight gain/obesity, Dry hair coat/excessive shedding
Hyperpigmentation of the skin, Cold intolerance, Slow heart rate, High blood cholesterol
It is rare to see hypothroidism in toy dogs. With medication she should drop her weight and we should be able to add her to being a mommy her at TMY some day. Hope this helps someone out there.........Holly


We are pleased to announce the birth of my granddaugher "Laura Jane Clukey" born in the wee morning hours today. She weighs 8 lbs 11 oz and is 22 inches long. Mom, Danielle and baby are doing great. Shane my son is the beaming daddy and Garrett, big brother to Laura Jane (L.J.) is happy as well.

Sorry I have not been writing much on here. The busy summer days with family things and taking care of business...LOL. What's new here at TMY? Well, we are impatiently waiting for our babies to arrive. Vegas is due next Wednesday but could wait until the following week if she decided to. Tessa and Faith are in training for showing. Payton is waiting for majors. We have entered in several shows only to have small entries. Finally a major coming in Keene NH in early August, but that does not mean we will take the win ....but we have to try. Lucy is growing a booda belly, Fallon is finally showing with her pregnancy too. Maybe small litters this time around. Anna Banana has gone to her forever home. I had kept her for showing but her sweet soft personality did her in. She did not like the big dogs at all. I felt it was best to sell her as a pet although I miss her and wished she could have been a show pup. Meadow has a new haircut, really short shave down and she loves it and so do I.........when i find my missing camera I will take pictures.
My daughter in law Danielle is due to have my 4th grandchild any minute.......a little girl. They have a boy, Garrett already. My daughter Jaime just found out she is having a boy in December, they have 2 girls Taylor and Kierney now.
Angel is in season and we will be doing a breeding this weekend. Sopie and Sampson are here as guests for an overnighter........... Well, that is about it for now.......stay cool and don't eat too much potato salad!! Holly

Once again Payton strutted her stuff in West Springfield MA for a Best of Winners, 2 point win on Friday under Judge Dr. Steve Keating. She now is "pointed out" and only needs one major win to finish her championship. This may come hard but we are going to try. I have to reevaluate where I am going, and now I have cancelled my vermont trip as there is only single points. I don't want to take them away from others who can use them. Will keep all of you posted....... Holly
