Pepe x Ava Q-Litter 3-Weeks

The Pepe x Ava Q-Litter Actually at 2 weeks and 6 days of age, not 3-weeks:

Today Ava decided it was time to introduce her pups to the magic of “the ball” by dropping “the ball” right smack in the middle of them. At this point not so much interest. The two pups on the far left: Purple-yellow and Green males; Center Green-monkey, Light-blue, and Purple males; right Pastel collar girl.

Aiden and O’Connor at IPO Training

Today we met Mario for IPO Training. We decided to resume IPO Training with Aiden as we are now training Connor. It has been almost 4 years since Aiden earned his IPO-2 and he was soooo excited to be back at training. Mario was very pleased how quickly Aiden reacted to all 3 phases. Connor is progressing quite nicely. We did very little protection work with Connor as he is still teething.

Ziva at the Hamburg Agility Trial May 2018

Ziva was entered in the Hamburg Agility Trial in Erie, PA  the weekend of May 26th.   This is our last trial for some time, as my cancer treatments are getting the best of me.  Ziva has been a champ greatly modifying her running style & paying extra close attention to suit my inability to run and handle the way I should.  She has also declared that until I am back on my feet she will not run for anyone but me.  I can hardly wait until we are together as a team again.  She always comes through for me.  BEST DOG EVER!

Ziva first class on Saturday was Master JWW.  She had a nice jumpers run and Q’d with 4th place.  I was able to get a video of her run below.

Her next class was Master Standard.  We did not place, but she did Q in spite of my not being able to properly handle her & came through for a double Q for the day!

 

Sunday her 1st class was Master JWW and she ran well.  We did not place, but she did Q for 15 PACH points.  This leg also earned her her Master Jumpers Bronze title!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As much as I wanted to try for another double Q, I just was not able to physically run the standard class, so we packed up, stopped for some ice cream for her and went home.

How we spent our 2-week birthday

Pepe x Ava Q-litter

Today we celebrated our two-week birthday by eating, pooping, getting bright lights flashed in our newly opened eyes, we tasted a nasty substance that the humans said was yummy and tasted like bananas…whatever bananas are?!?! OH and most of all we slept! We like to sleep and eat, not necessarily in that order.

Green-monkey and pastel collars:
