Shandy does well in Rally!

Today Shandy and her owner Chrissie Diron braved the elements (cold wind, torrential rain and on the way home snow too!) to attend the CKC rallyO trials in Courtenay, BC.  They had a great day though - brought home 2 "legs" towards her RA (rally advanced) title! Good scores (94/100 and 96/100 respectively), the latter earned her 2nd in class.  They will have to wait until the New Year to get to any more events like this, but with just one leg of her CKC RA to go and one leg of her CARO RE, Chrissie is confident they can look forward to 2 new titles in 2010 :-). Congratulations to Chrissie & Shandy!

Howling great Hallowe'en

Two of our dogs had howling great success this Hallowe'en weekend.

Milo (out of Am/Can CH Gardenway Gunners' Moon "Charlie" and CH Varazs Kincses Natasha FDJ "Tasha" born June 13, 2002) and owner Corrine Sellars earned Milo's 5th and final "C" leg in the Cdn Assoc. of Rally Obedience to give him Bronze Championship title!!! And this weekend, they also earned his 3rd Versatility leg - and 3rd place with a score of 191 - adding yet another title - Rally Versatility (RV). Milo is now officially known as CRB Varazs Mokany Ficko FDJ, CGN, SSGDC, SADC, AG.N.J., CL1-R, AG.N., Am/Can CD, Am/Can RA, RXCL, RAE, RNT, RV. If you want to know what all these title initials stand for, I suggest you click on the link to his name which will take you to his webpage. Great work Corrine and Milo!! Corrine, you're going to have to build an extension onto your home to house all of Milo's rosettes!!

Gunner (Varazs Kedves Quinn) out of CH Hubertus Quality Control FDJ (Ozzie) and Am/Can CH Varazs Kiralyi Kedvesem FD, NAVHDA NA Prize III, JH, Am/Can CD, Am/Can RE, CGN (Miska) born June 2008 and owned by Donna and Scott Hildebrant of Oakville ON, was Winners Dog two of the three days of shows at the Trillium Dog Fanciers show in Etobicoke, ON. And on Sunday, he was also selected by Judge Patricia Laurens of Newton, CT for Best of Breed! This gave him 4 more points this weekend. He now only needs 2 more pts to complete his championship. Way to go Gunner!
