Last Tango in Richmond Hills, Ontario

May 31, 2009

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.

    I know you will be glad to have your happy boy back home! Give him a belly rub from Laura P.

    Glad he is coming home to you, but I do wish he could do his Jaime duty sooner rather than later. I am dying for a Chaselet to ooh and aahh over.

  3. Alden says:

    So glad he’s coming home. Hopefully, we’ll get to meet the “fancy” BADDOG in person this summer.

    Fig says, “Welcome home, Chase. I’m going to have my own blog soon. I have to share it with Axel and Duncan, though. Safe travels home!”

  4. MyEye says:

    Since the implant (pupsicles) didn’t take, the plan is to bring Jaime to Albuquerque for her next season — we’ll let Chase handle things personally. Shelley plans to use the remaining pupsicles on a second of her girls. Hopefully we’ll have a bunch of Chaselets to enjoy.

  5. Holly says:

    Congrats on all the success in Canada! I bet you can’t wait to get him home!

  6. Sandy says:

    Always the bride’s maid, huh? Well, he will come into his own soon and in the meantime he can kick some major butt in the obedience ring! Good job, Chase-buddy. Your “mom” is waiting for you!
