I had the pleasure of watching Laura show her young male, Lance (Vando x Chopper), this past Saturday at the UKC show in Kalamazoo. Lance won the Champion class the first
show and was Reserve Champion the second show. It was thrilling for me was to see how well Laura and Lance performed together in an area that is completely out of Laura's comfort zone. Many
kudos to you Laura! Lance is a beautiful moving dog.
Now I just have to work on to get past feeling "out of control" when Lance moves out on the leash! Then they will be an almost flawless team!
O'Stara made her ring debut today in the AKC Rally Novice ring at the Toledo Kennel Club. Handled, trained, and owned by Charlene Wiglesworth. Stara performed beautifully on some of the
exercises and startled once when she noticed a door in the wall that made up one side of the ring. That door clearly was not suppose to be in the ring!
Julie, we trialed last weekend, her 4th run was a spare, fun run, in novice
standard. I handler errored and blew past the dogwalk so fast, she just beat
feet to catch up with me. She is a blast to run, responsive and quick, awesome
in the weave poles. She's had an issue with the teeter, couldn't even tell this
past weekend. I've taught her to paw one set low and praised her for making it
bang with good treats- so now its a game, too. We show next mid March near Des
Dear Kenneth & Marjorie Douglas,
The following information is being sent to the AKC for
Liesje's first time ever in the ring at a real show and they did great!
"Kenya (Chopper) and I got our first rally legs today! Kenya is my first dog and this was our first show so I was very
nervous. We did Novice A and got an 86 and a 92. I got some pics with our ribbons and some still shots from a video (both thanks to Lu!). I will upload the video of our second run
Lies and chopper with their qualifying ribbons and the 3rd and 4th place placement ribbons. they get my vote for the happiest and most attractive team!
