Up North!

This BH we all travelled up to Barnard Castle in Beryl the yellow peril in the hope of gaining our 1st Champ. cert. We put in stonking rounds in jumping & agility winning both classes but unfortunately got the big E in the final :(
This time last year I wasn't even running Chi let alone even contemplating being in a Champ final so I am very proud & pleased that he has gained a reserve ticket and been in 5 finals to date.
Watch out for us next season!

Luckily it wasn't that grim up North after all - although it was a little colder, probably been living down 'sarf' too long!

Beautifull sun set after a beautifull sunny day with lots of wind!

Our set up! Very impressive if i do say so myself :)

KC International


I've started to feel excited already and come out in goose bumps every time i tell anyone :) The semi finals were held on the Friday of the KC International another enjoyable weekend of agility - expecially since Chi won some excellent prizes, including an Obay Sheltie sweep both ways (Zen 1st Chi 2nd, Chi 1st Zen 2nd). We also sampled the prestige of running for our country in the International cup and put in some stonking runs on the European style courses.

Here is our Olympia qualifying run:

A big CONGRATULATIONS to all the people who came over from Jersey they did very well in the team events and a special well done to Louise Macpharlane & her Westie (pictured below) for winning the British Open small and Sally Rees for qualifying 2 dogs for the British Open finals. My memory doesn't serve me well I only wish Lorna Goodban was there she manages to remember all the good results. Anyway well done to you all.

We camped again this weekend, I didn't realise there was so much evening activites! Grandpa Dennis astroid gazing after a few relaxing beers ..........:)

Griz found her perfect 'man' in Spookie, she was mad for him. Tony says Spookie can come stay whenever he wants - so Johanna, about that swap idea....:)

Arrived home from Alysbury show today to find Chi's certificate for his Agility Warrent Gold - Yipee! A nice end to the day especially since I didn't manage to get us round any course clear today :( Still managed to do some good contacts - as always and executed some nifty manouvers. The best part of the day was Lian arranging for me to have a dog food container - thank you Lian! She told me it was an early b'day pressie (yeap, 41 years young tomorrow).
