  1. Happy Birthday to Nola, and Smooch, and Udi, and Rhys

    Our pretty red girl Nola, her dynamic sister Smoochie, and the brothers Udi and Rhys are two years old today.  So — a little trip down memory lane.

    So, what have they done.  Rhys and Udi went to pet homes.  I expected that Rhys would be showing in Obedience by now, but haven’t received any word about that.

    Smooch has been a star.  She is Elyan The Evening Echo of C-Myste HT NAP NJP RN BN.  DeAnn Nelson and her husband Rich are giving Smooch a wonderful home with lots of opportunities to excel in every venue.

    Nola is Elyan C-Myste The Times Picayune HT.  She needs a 3-point major to complete her Championship and begins Obedience class next week.  She lives here with her Daddy Chase and her Grandma Inca.  I anticipate she will be bred in the Spring.

    This litter was Chase’s third.  By the time they were born, Chase was in Tennessee herding with Susan and living with Cheryl.  The puppies were raised by big brother Holmes — how he loved these babies!

  2. First Novice Standard Agility Leg

    October 20, 2012 by myeye

    Today Chase, running with Dee Falk, earned his first Novice Standard Agility leg.  He ran the 110 yard course in 20 seconds under the Course time with a perfect score of 100.  He earned a blue ribbon for his efforts.  Forgive the end of the video — I forgot to turn off the camera before I joyously threw my hands up in the air.  His Jumpers run was pretty bad and included him making up his own course and spotting me at the side of the ring with the camera.  Tomorrow the runs are small to tall and it’s supposed to be a bit cooler out.  Maybe we can repeat the Q in Standard and earn a Jumpers leg.  Enjoy this pretty run by (as Dee describes Chase) a florescent green dog.
