Anne's Jamie made it into the Brown Trout 2018 calendar. She's not only cover girl, but also March and June!

The first weekend of April was busy!

Linda - Ember made her Rally Novice debut on Saturday and she stunned me with lovely attention almost the entire course, winning first place with a score of 100, and somehow ending up High Scoring Rally dog for the first Rally trial of the day as well. I guess I will put her in Rally at our NSS next month! Saturday Pippa NQed her first class, utility, but qualified nicely in open. Then on Sunday, Pippa earned her second UDX leg with two nice classes.

Ellen - Rufus got his 9th leg towards his RAE with 99's in both Excellent and Advanced and a High Combined  Score in the afternoon Rally Trial.

Jo Ann - Hope showed at Concord and got a first in her class Saturday and winners reserve on Sunday (conformation).

Gayle - Score made his AKC herding debut Sunday.  He got a perfect score from a judge who said she's hardly ever given a 100.  That makes it even sweeter.


At the Lexington Agility trial, Anne & Slurpee earned their Open Jumpers title!

2/11 and 12 Karen and Mo competed in Preferred Novice. They started out with a 2nd and won the next day.

Linda shared that Tango finished his preferred utility title PUTD 2/11. He was a hoot in both classes and nearly NQed for moving forward too much on his signals. Pippa Qed twice but was not in the ribbons.

After busting Utility, Jan and Max earned their bonus UDX leg the next day 2/12.

Gayle and Bill went to Westminster to competed in Obedience.

Anne's Slurpee wore herself out being a good girl at the dog show the last weekend of January. She was Winners Bitch both days!
