Well the table from My AKC doesn’t quite fit on the blog — it’s a little weird (and I looked in the HTML — it’s all code) BUT you can see the CH in front of Holmes’ legal name.  I am so very proud of him.

Last night at the local All Breed Club meeting a friend that lives in the south valley — the part of Albuquerque closest to where I live in Los Lunas — asked me to start bringing Holmes and Nola to her place for Agility. She has earned 80 MACHs or OTCHs and has both a puppy course and a standard course set up. What a great chance for the young ones to start playing!. I should check my ticket from Wednesday and see if I won the lottery so I can quit being a lawyer and just be a dog mom.
