Many Thanksgiving foods that you enjoy are potentially toxic to your pets. Make sure you are only treating them to the foods that are safe for them to feast on and enjoy!

CED AND BREWZER MADE FINALS @ DOCK DIVING NATIONALS‼️‼️‼️

CED AND BREWZER MADE FINALS @ DOCK DIVING NATIONALS‼️‼️‼️
Ced and Brewzer placed 5th in the top 10 for finals in Hydro Dash. Each of those top 10 competitors are given the option to take another splash in an attempt to improve their score while risking going to the bottom of the next division.
Ced was only 7/10 of a second from going into the next division with four other people even closer. Four or five people in that division decided to take the gamble, including Ced. We won’t find out where we landed until the banquet tonight. Update to follow.

These two Papillon puppies made fast friends in conformation class tonight! It can be pretty scary for a young dog to walk into a room with several other dogs, new people and lots of unfamiliar sights, smells and sounds. It’s especially scary if your only 5-6 lbs. I’m so happy these two had each other. They quickly acclimated from shivering in fear to romping like littermates.
All the dogs did very well. We are working on stacking and gaiting appropriately for our dog’s breed and are assigned homework. We will read our breed’s illustrated standard. Always good to know what the ideal dog of a particular breed should be and learn to accurately evaluate your own dog and other dogs of the same breed. It is the adherence to these standards that makes it possible to identify and differentiate between breeds of dogs.
Kudos to our instructor John Cramer for a wonderful first night!

Brewzer Jumped 20’‼️‼️‼️
4 years ago we started pursuing the sport of Dock Diving. Our initial goal for Brewzer was 10’. He surprised us by achieving that very quickly!
The Dock owner of our first NADD trial told us Brew could jump 20’ with practice. We were all, “no way! Not on his best day ever!”
I’m extremely proud to announce that this team, Ced and Brewzer, accomplished that 20 foot jump this weekend‼️‼️‼️
Welcome to Masters boys!

Charm ranks at the top of his breed in dock diving! 🎉🐾

Our very own little Charm got an invite to Dock Diving Nationals. He finished the season as the #1 Dock Diving Papillon in the country! He’s 5 1/2 lbs of fierce diving fearlessness! We’ll post how he did later this week and final scores as soon as they are available, some time in November.

So proud of our little ‘Charm’! I bet this wet suite helps him surpass his personal best! Thanks to Melanie Freeman-Dietz @ Sew Forth Alterations. Charm is heading to Dock Diving Nationals as the #1 Dock Diving Papillon in the country 2020! Owner trained & handled by Liz Devin & Cedric E. Devin of Christal K-9.

Every once in a while I take a break from the normal wedding gown hem to stitch a special project. I’m so happy we could help Charm fit perfectly into his brand new wet suit. This cute little champ is headed to Nationals this week to compete in Dock Diving.
Good Luck Charm! 🏅

Shout out to this amazingly talented young lady! Lily Yu not only helped Liz Devin figure out how to make masks for family and Christal K-9 staff, she helped find the supplies necessary to do so. No small feat in these challenging times?
While Liz struggles to complete 2 or 3 a day, Lily has whipped up over 200 for family friends and most importantly, she has made and delivered hundreds to elderly and first responders in our community!
👏👏👏👏👍🎉🐶😷😷😷 Bravo Lily! Thank you for contributing to our community’s safety!
Lily is pictured with her lovely Havanese Cuddles & Rosie. Rosie is also pictured in Lily’s painting. Is there anything this trio can’t do? These are Lily’s first dogs and both have earned their CGC titles! They also keep her retired parents entertained when not romping or enjoying a spa day at Christal. k-9. Several of Lily’s sewing projects are included. Check out her dog’s fancy coats!

Tiny puppy makes a big impression!

Imagine our surprise when we woke up and saw our Papillon puppy ‘Charm’ on the channel 4 morning news! Just turning 9 months old and only 5 1/2 lbs, the 1,500 dogs and just as many people were a bit daunting for him.
So proud of the enormous progress he makes each day. Exposing puppies to many sights, sounds, smells and positive experiences, set them up to bravely face the myriad of things life will indubitably throw at them.

Just for you Susan. Hope your little Scrappy is comforting you today, Sue. 🐕
Love you to the moon and back! 😘🤗
You got this girl! 💪🏼👍👌💝

I have heard this more now than ever, and there were no truer words ever spoken. Occasionally, people tell me, "Oh, it's only a dog," or... "Well, that's a lot of money for just a dog."
They see the travel distance, the time spent and spending of the money for just a dog, and they don't understand.
Hour after hour passes, and my only company is just a dog.
Some of my most proud moments were with only a dog, and also some of my saddest moments came only with a dog.
However, in those dark days, it was the gentle touch of only a dog that made me strong and motivated to keep going.
Only a dog brings me pure love, friendship, trust, and perfect happiness.
Only a dog brings compassion and patience, which makes me a better person.
Only with a dog will I get up early, take long walks, and look forward to the future.
For people like me, it is not "just a dog."
My dog is an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams for the future, many a happy memory from the past, and the pure joy for the present.

There are not enough grateful words to express my joy at the grooming my Corgi and Tibetan Spaniel received today at Christal K-9. Danielle and her assistants worked hours on my Tobie the messy Tibbie. I’m sure they will find Corgi hair from Cali in places they would never expect. I cannot recommend this shop highly enough. My dogs were relaxed and happy to see me and looking gorgeous. 10 Gold Stars !
We think you'all ROCK‼ 🐶💙🐶💙🐶💙🐶💙🐶💙🐶💙🐶
Bill has a way, when I’m not paying attention but he wants something, of letting me know he needs or wants or expects something from me ... He gets in front of me, sits, and — without a sound — just stares at me. Even if I’m asleep, I wake up to that stare. This morning, I was sitting beside Lucas watching TV when I dozed off into a very light sleep. Lucas nudged me at 10:30. When I opened my eyes, Bill was right in front of me in his sit-stare position. I knew that was his way of saying, “It’s time for you to take me to Christal K-9!” I said, “Just wait 45 minutes. I’ll take you at 11:15.” Then I closed my eyes and pretended I was back asleep. But I knew he was still giving me the look. After 15 seconds or so, I heard Bill get up and move to the side of the loveseat, where he stopped. Some seconds later, I opened my eyes and he was in his exact same sit-stare position shifted 45° from his previous spot. Lucas and I laughed and Bill was at Christal K-9 just ten minutes later.
Bill clearly had fun at Christal K-9 today ...
We are so sorry for the unfortunate fire and the loss of so many cherished pets. Can you give us an idea of when you will reopen? Rich and Rhetta Noever.

Wanted to thank you for sponsoring the prize for Best In Show Brace at the Lawrence KC show. My boys won both days. I can't share a picture for some reason but would be happy to send you one!

So excited about Danielle getting to groom Lucy on Friday!
thank you so much for the CGC pretest today. We are very excited about taking the test now. No other examiner or trainers I have come across even offered to do a pretest... you are so awesome! I was so nervous and you put my worries at ease. Thank you so much!
Hi! I was wondering when your next puppy obedience classes were? I talked to someone a few months ago who said hopefully January. Just seeing if any official dates had been set? I am desperately needing to get my puppy enrolled in some classes! Thanks!
