Chase is done showing in Canada. Today was the third day of the Aurora and District Kennel Club shows. He was again Best Opposite Sex to Dolly. Dolly went on to take another Group III — what a weekend she’s had! We’re sending our congratulations to Shelley and to Dolly’s handler Simon.
Next Sunday, Shelley will take Chase to the Buffalo NY area. He’s going to spend the night with Cynnie Smith’s friend, then Monday morning, Cynnie will put him on an airplane headed for Albuquerque (by way of Newark, NJ and Houston, TX). Chase will have an awfully long travel day, but should be home next Monday night at 6:30 PM. Friday afternoon I spoke with one of our best obedience instructors and a top competitor. Chase and I will commence serious obedience training with her in a couple of weeks. We are also enrolled in a rally class that begins in mid-July. I believe he will love the Companion/Performance venues, and expect him to add the same joy de vivre to that work that he puts into playing in the Miracle-Mud Spa & Resort!
He’s had a blast at Shelley’s place — running in the field, playing with the girls, going to shows. Now, however, it’s time for him to begin a new adventure at home with me.
