Tuli and our friend Kim Raleigh went to Hobbs the first weekend of February. On Sunday Tuli was a rockstar. She was in the 12-18 month class which she won. She went Winners Bitch, Best of Winners and . . . wait for it . . . Best of Breed over four Champions to earn her first major. Of course, we have no more shows within shouting distance until May. We will head off to our National Specialty at the Purina Events Center in Missouri the first week of May. It’s a really big sheww — we look forward to seeing all of our friends and dogs we’ve not seen before. Pam Day and Lacey will be there. Chase is entered in the CWCCA’s first triathalon. He will herd, run agility, and compete in conformation.
Here is Tuli’s win photo from Hobbs

When I went to my Post Office today, I had a pick-up notice in my box (actually two, but one was unimportant). The other box was totally unexpected. It was from my friend Margaret Williams. Margaret lives in South Dakota and I know she is really jealous because we have had so much snow and rain while she enjoys unseasonal warmth. The box contained real surprises. One was the much-coveted Target Corgi ornament. When the little guys hit the Target shelves, Corgi Nation gathered together and launched an unparalleled rescue operation. That meant if you didn’t get a Target Corgi ornament in the first few days after they were stocked, you were not getting one. We don’t have a Target in Los Lunas and I had not been in Albuquerque when I also had time to systematically hit the Targets to find one of the elusive ornaments. I assumed I would have to do without, but then Margaret packaged up one of the little guys and sent it to me. They are very cute! Don’t you agree?
Also in the surprise box was a lovely oval, beveled glass ornament with a photo on it of Chase herding sheep. It is an early morning photo so includes many shades of blue. It is so beautiful, so unexpected, and I am so grateful. What a wonderful gift. Hugs to Margaret.

Here is a photo of my father on one of his polo ponies — in the mid to late forties. I wish he had lived long enough for me to know him as an adult.

Here is Freya (Ultra) on the occasion of her 5-month birthday. She found mud and it made her soooo happy. Thanks, Beth Harris for taking this great photo.
Adorable, I think!

Many, many thanks to Sue Meile who took 7,000 photos at the Southern California Trials, put all of Chase, Banjo and Echo on a flash drive and mailed it to me. Here are some of the photos I liked the best.

These photos are from Chase’s High in Trial run. Again, thank you Sue for immortalizing the day. Thank you Ellen Gerwin for training our Chaseman and trialing him so well.
Congratulations to Ellen’s Banjo who was High in Trial the preceding day. Cardis rule!
