This post will be short, but I’ll embellish it with photos and video later on.
We had a most splendiferous weekend.
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.
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.
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!
