I have been notified that Chase has officially earned his Register of Merit Silver designation from the Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of America. That means he has at least 15 individual titled progeny that have earned a total of at least 30 titles. I am so proud of his children and of the people that bred and own them. These are the kids and their Moms:
Dam: CH Windshyre Stormy Weather ROMb = GCh C-Myste The Game’s Afoot at Elyan CD RA “Holmes”, Elyan C-Myste Elementary My Dear Watson HT PT “Watson”
Dam: Wellshire Lady Luck ROMb = GCh Wellshire Absolut Magic (Winners Bitch at 2011 Nationals and a Group Winner) “Nikki”, Ch Welshire Queen of Hearts “Ali”, Ch Wellshire Mr. Majestic “Deuce”, Wellshire Follow the Queen Darby HT PT “Darby”

There are more children from these and other litters out being shown and participating in Conformation, Herding, Obedience/Rally, and Agility. Thank you to the breeders and the owners that have given these puppies every chance to excel. I am so grateful.
Chase will turn six in October. I am hopeful that he will have the opportunity to continue enjoying his children and grandchildren, and even great grandchildren. Officially, Chase is GCh/Can Ch C-Myste Baledwr Pursuit of Happiness CD RN HSAds HIAs HXAs NAP NJP VCX ROMs TT

The Chaseman was entered all three days at the Valencia Valley Kennel Club Agility Trials held at Eagle Park in Belen. He finished his Novice Standard Preferred title (NAP). I love this photo of him flying toward a jump. Evelyn Vinogradov took this and many other shots. Once she has posted from all three days, I know I’ll be adding more Chase shots to my collection. He’s still a green dog and makes green dog mistakes, but he loves this game. Our classes are winding down for this year so he and I are going to hit the fields. I hope to certify him this winter to enter him in our TD test in January.
Meanwhile, the kids were busy in other parts of the country. Smooch was in Yakima and earned a Novice Fast leg. Lowri and Baby Dinah were showing in Knoxville. Dinah earned two more points and Lowri was Best of Breed one day and Select to Sherri Hurst and Libby the other three days.
Since I was at the trials, the house did not get cleaned (again/still), but I made some small inroads. Chase’s betrothed (Dory) earned a GCh Major — she’s at 13 GCh points with two majors. Since Dory is now nekked, we expect she will come in season soon. When she does, she’ll get on a plane to fly down from Chicago.
My work week has come back to me — on Friday we resolved the matter that was set for trial. So I am able to get to work on the 2013 National Specialty chores and on the Bulletin (not to mention taking care of all my other clients).

Cheryl Kienast is at the Tennessee Valley KC shows this weekend. Today our Baby Dinah was Winners Bitch and Best of Winners for her second point. Big sister Lowri was Select Bitch — wouldn’t you know it — Sherri and Libby showed up to take Best of Breed. It’s four days of shows so I’ll have reports all weekend.
Chase’s next Agility trial begins tomorrow afternoon. We have class tonight to remind him of how much fun it is to run. I plan to run him myself tomorrow. The knee is much better and I’ll wear a brace just to be on the safe side. He has two Novice Standard legs and one Novice Jumpers leg. We have three trial days to earn another Novice and two Jumpers legs to complete his first Agility titles. Such fun for the happy guy.
I was scheduled to begin a trial on Tuesday, but last minute plea negotiations were successful — so the case is resolved. I am so happy that we worked things out (and that I’ll have my weekend). When it’s 70 degrees and sunny, you do not want to be handcuffed to a keyboard.

Chase has produced some very pretty red dogs. The red is deep and rich with dark nose and eye pigment. Love the red dogs! These photos were take by Kevin McCombs. The dogs are Killian (Chase/Ditto) and Kelli (Chase/Keina). Reds must stick together! Other pretty red kids: Owen (Chase/Ditto) and Nola (Chase/Leidy)
Killian loves his little sister
He even keeps her ears clean for her

Pretty blue Thumper will be going to a forever home in California. The brindle girl puppy is, however, still available. She is delightful and inquisitive. I can see her in a home with a bunch of children. I think the entertainment would be mutual.
