  1. What a Great Weekend!

    This post will be short, but I’ll embellish it with photos and video later on.

    We had a most splendiferous weekend.

    Saturday:

    CHASE:  Although Chase and the geese did not bond (at all) at the PWCCSC All-Corgi Herding Trial, the sheep were to his liking.  On Saturday, he was second to “Rocky” in Advanced Sheep and earned 2 Championship Points.  Ellen Gerwin is his pilot.  Here is a link to the video:

    ADDIE:  This Chase/Dory daughter is owned and handled by Celena Slaton.  Addie was Best of Winners at the Terry-All Show for another point.

    MEA:  This is a Holmes/Rhiannon baby girl.  She earned her first point owner-handled by Arlene Irby.

    NOLA:  Our funny red girl and her owner Elfie Payne earned a second place in Novice Obedience.  She scored 192.5 and completed her CD.  All three of her legs were 192 (or higher) in huge classes.  She was awarded a first place and two second places.  Nola is a Chase/Leidy daughter.

    Sunday:

    CHASE:  Even better than Saturday.  Chase won the Advanced Sheep class and earned his first herding major.  It has taken more than a year for Ellen and Chase to become comfortable with one another on the course (remember there is livestock running around out there).  It’s been worth the wait.

    ADDIE: Ms. Addie and Celena took Best of Breed over two Champions.  This yearling just keeps getting better and better.  She will be at the National Specialty next week — I hope the judge loves her as much as we do.

    SMOOCH:  Earned another RAE leg with her owner DeAnn Nelson.  Smoochie and Nola are littermates.

    It was a crazed weekend here while I searched unsuccessfully for the Title to the little trailer.  I know it is here — somewhere.  Then I discovered, with the help of my neighbor that we could not discover the towing wiring on the Element (affectionately called “Hi-O”).  It has the travel package (roof rack, trailer hitch), but no receptacle for the trailer’s brake lights/running lights — not that it matters because I can’t transfer the trailer to my name and register it without the title.

    The wind BLEW.  The mountains were not visible, the tumbleweeds are piling up, and everything has a thin coating of dust.

    Today:

    Have the wiring harness installed on the car, make arrangements to rent a small trailer, try to make some clients happy, and have lunch with Jean.  See, I am clinging to sanity!
