Libby and Ziva’s trip to the 2016 GSDCA Nationals – Wednesday 10/12 and Thursday 10/13

Wednesday was a day with no entered classes, so we decided to try something new.  Ziva loves to swim and we have never tried dock diving, so we gave it a shot.  We were able to do a try-it to see if she would go in the pool, that seemed to work ok, so I entered her in the splashes and she ended the day with two  qualifying jumps.


















Thursday was Libby’s day, she was entered in Rally.  She earned her 1st RAE leg with very nice scores of 97 for 5th place in Advanced B and 98 for 3rd place in Excellent B.  Such a good girl!































Thursday afternoon, it was back to try more dock diving.  5 qualifying jumps are needed to  title and  with Lynda’s help holding Ziva , she earned her final legs for her Dock Novice  title!






















Thursday night Barb was arriving from Florida to help celebrate Ziva’s  GSDCA Performance Award of Merit achievement.  More importantly, as far as Libby was concerned, she was there to see her since Barb’s  Syd and Libby basically grew up together on this blog and both have such LARGE personalities and as everyone knows Libby is the QUEEN after all 🙂

Hallmark Channels Movie “I’ll be home for Christmas” staring Faras Vom kirshcental has connections to Alta-Tollhaus.

His father is Ziva and Viktor’s grandfather. Do you think he could get her a job in the movies?? LOL

Day 2 at the Thanksgiving Cluster Agility Trial

Today was the second day of the four day Thanksgiving Cluster Agility Trial and the last day Aiden was entered. I just entered him in the first two classes of the day as they were the regular classes, Masters Standard and Masters JWW, to make it a shorter day.

In Masters Standard Agility Aiden had a really good run. I am so pleased with how well we worked together. There were several traps which we managed to avoid but unfortunately one bar came down .

In Masters Jumpers with Weaves Aiden had another good run and qualified 12 seconds under the standard course time and therefore earned 12 points towards his MACH.
