2 New Titles!!

Last weekend was our local Dog Show here in Lethbridge.  I entered Lync in Novice Obedience and Ash in Conformation. Well what a fantastic weekend we had.  I still am floating on Cloud 9!

Lync and his mom Kona

I'll start with Lync, Day # 1 he passed!! I was so thrilled, we have been to 6 trials before this one and NQ'd in each one, so passing was about due!
Day # 2 he passed again, giving him his CD title!!  Wow it's been 7 years since I put a CD on a dog. Day # 3 I almost didn't enter, I decided to put him in, thanks to Amanda, for practise in the ring.  He has a wee bit of ring stress going on so we need to work on that. Well you guessed it, he passed again !! We also went High Score in Class!  Then I got a surprise that I won't soon forget.  There was a special trophy offered for High Aggregate Scoring Novice dog in either the A or the B class, Lync ended up winning this Award . What was even more special was that Lync's mother Kona also won this award 4 years ago on the same day!
I was very honoured and proud to accept this award with Lync, we have worked very hard and are becoming a great team together.

Now for Ash, on Day #1 there were 2 shows offered.  In the morning I showed him myself, we were the only entry so we won Best of Breed and got to have some fun in the Herding Group as well.  In the afternoon I ended up with a conflict with Lync in Obedience.  I was lucky to find someone to show him for me! There was a female entry and she won the Breed so no points for Ash.
Day # 2 I had someone show Ash for me again. Ash won Winners Male for 2 points putting him at 9, 1 point to go! 
Day # 3, Ash won the points again and finished his Championship!!! Yay !! So exciting!

I will now take a bit of a break until the new year before starting Open training with Lync.

Wow, this is fantastic, on all fronts! I've been enjoying your blog for years, but haven't commented. Good for you; this was a great effort on everyone's part! Fay, with Wicca's half-brother Tali and assorted others.
