Tracking

I have started tracking with Ash, I've gone out twice now and he is slowly catching on.  It is difficult at first to help them realize you want them to follow your scent on the ground, but once they make the connection it is so much fun! I had originally started Kort and Lync but thought Ash needed something to do with me as we don't do anything together.  He seems to like it too!
Here are some pictures from his first attempts......

56!

Today is my birthday, Happy Birthday to me.  As  sit here with my dogs I think back on past birthdays,  the parties when I was a kid, the parties when I was an adult!  Today I am working for the first time, only till noon, then I'm going to go out somewhere special and do something just for me.  Not sure what that is yet but I'll figure it out.
Hope everyone has a great day , party like it is your birthday too, it feels good :)

Saskatoon Dog Show

The entry of Flatcoats for the Booster

I am finally getting around to posting about my Dog Show trip to Saskatoon.

Lync took Select Dog on the first day only giving him another 2 points toward his Grand Championship.  He is now up to 16 points and needs 4 more.  His next show wont be until November now so it will take me awhile to get those 4 points I think.  Now that I am working it is harder to get to the out of town shows.  Lync is out of coat right now anyway so waiting for a bit is probably a good idea.

The trip was also a good learning experience as we had a lot of dinners out with some of the pillars of the  breed like Hans and Margareta Berin from the great Prairielight Kennels.  I loved listening and learning from such experienced breeders.

All in all a great time and will look forward to returning next year!

Saskatoon


Next weekend I will be at the Saskatoon Dog Show with Lync.  I have never been there so I am really looking forward to it!  I will be travelling with Liz so we will have some great conversations along the way as it is an 8 hour drive!
The entry is great ! Show 1, there are 11, Show 2, there are 14, Show 3 which is also the booster we have 16! and Show 4 there are 15!  I of course am hoping to finish Lync's Grand championship, I need either a Best of Breed, Best of Opposite or a Select dog on a couple of days, here's hoping!
