Ziva’s latest not so fun adventure.

Ziva recently sliced her paw very deeply before her class at an agility trial.  I could not stop the bleeding so we wrapped her up in a diaper and off to the vet. They had been doing some renovation at the site and since the slice was so clean we are wondering if one of the workers may have dropped a blade from a cutting tool used on either the drywall or carpeting.  She has been getting lasered & wrapped  every other day and finally we are starting to see some granulation tissue filling in-yay!   We will have missed 3 trials and it looks like the late December trial will be it for us for the year since there were only a few more local trials before winter set in and then that was it until March 🙁

Here I am waiting to get my foot looked at.  Mom needs to clean her floors, look how dirty my bandage is!

I hope that I can start to do things soon!  Hanging in the house is BORING!!!!












Laser all done and my nice clean green bandage is on 🙂  I find if you look like a sad waif at the vet techs they give you goodies























SUCCESS!!!!!  Cookies are yummy













Bye, bye Audrey, see you (and your cookies) in a few more days.

Aiden – Day 2 of the CCKC Agility Trial

Today Jack, Aiden and I were back at the Cape Cod Kennel Club Agility Trial. We had a very successful day.

Aiden’s first class of the day was Masters Standard Preferred. Aiden always seems to be amped up in the first class. Although he was his usual energetic, enthusiastic and loud self, together we managed to get around a tricky course keeping all the bars up and hitting all the contacts. Aiden qualified in 1st place and earned 23 PACH points.

The next class was Time to Beat Preferred. This was a great, flowing course and Aiden set the Time to Beat, qualifying 1st and earning 10 points.

Last up was Masters Jumpers with Weaves Preferred. After two days of agility, and 5 previous classes, Aiden was STILL raring to go. He bolted off the start line and unfortunately knocked the bar on the first jump but went on to have a nice run.

No Double Q’s again for us this weekend but we qualified in 4 out of 6 classes, all with 1st places. The most important thing is, and you can see in the videos, Aiden REALLY loves this sport! We had a great time.

Aiden at the CCKC Agility Trial

This weekend the Cape Cod Kennel Club is holding their fall agility trial in Westborough, MA. Jack and I drove up yesterday afternoon to help with the set-up. It was 74 degrees…. on November 3rd…T-shirt weather!!


This morning we were at the trial site at 6:45am. AKC rules require 4 club members to be present before competitors are allowed in the building. Since we are both club members we agreed to be there early and assist.

Aiden’s first class of the day was Masters Jumpers with Weaves preferred. He had a great run and qualified in 1st place and earned 15 PACH points. Another GSD placed 2nd and Aiden’s GSD friend Yasha was 4th. Go GSDs!

The next class for Aiden was Masters FAST. Aiden got the bonus and racked up 78 out of the possible 80 points and qualified in 1st place.

Aiden’s last class was Masters Standard Preferred. He was having a nice run but unfortunately missed a jump. I got him back on track but after that he also had an off-course at the see saw!

The good news is that Aiden did not knock any jumps today!! We were having a spell where Aiden always seemed to knock just one bar.

Alta-Tollhaus Michigan “Mika” VP1

Hello everyone,

Mika got her VP1 rating this weekend under SV judge Friedrich Gerstenberg in Surrey, BC at the 2017 West Regional Conformation Show and Breed Survey. This is her second showing in the baby puppy class and I am pretty sure she doubled in size since her last show in Idaho. We were able to do a couple practice laps first which seemed to really help.

This is the only picture I have found so far. I did see someone taking pictures of her in the ring, so I am hoping more will show up in weeks to come.
