We will start off with our usual yearly recap .... these years seem to just slip by so fast .....
2016 was busy pretty much from the get-go. Our dogs' personal achievements are listed below:
United Kennel Club Novice Obedience (UCD)
United Kennel Club Rally Obedience Level 1 & 2 (URO1 and URO2)
United Kennel Club HIGH IN TRIAL from the Open B Class
(along with 2 legs of her UKC CDX)
CARO Rally Novice (CRNMCL) - with a perfect 200 score
CARO Rally Novice Team (CRNT)
Chase Abilty (CA)
Companion Dog Excellent (CDX)
CARO Rally Novice (CRNMCL)
United Kennel Club Rally Obedience Level 1 (URO1)
Herding Instinct Certification (HIC)
Grady also earned one leg towards her Chase Ability title, we are hoping to finish that one when the season starts up again in the spring. She also passed her OFA echocardiogram with flying colors and is continuing on with her health testing in early 2017.
Her littermates, Red and Gadget were also active in 2016. Red and his owner Sada earned their Scent Detection Started and Advanced titles and Gadget earned his first point towards his Championship with his owner Katrin handling him. These boys are both from our 'British Invasion' litter.
We also sadly, lost a few of our beloved pups, including our own Seeker.
This is the reality of breeding. There are so many 'ups' but you have to pair that with many 'downs' as well ...
Onto 2017 ... hoping it will be busy, prosperous and above all else, fun!!
