Wonderful Weekend

Last weekend (September 13-15), I tried (and succeeded) to be in two different towns on the same days (Saturday and Sunday) to participate in dog events with three different dogs.  Because of the schedules and timing, it worked!!!  We had a very successful weekend overall.

Miss Elsie
(now aka CH Varazs Kedvesem Grand Finale)


Elsie was Reserve Winners bitch on Friday at the Oakville Kennel Club's show but came back on Saturday to take Winners Bitch, Best of Winners and Best of Breed for 3 points.  AND the judge, Marjorie Mortrrella from the US, pulled Elsie out in the sporting group too.  Marjoried commented that she is "a very pretty bitch".  It was a nice way to finish Elsie's championship.

Congratulations to Best of Breed - Charlie! 

Congratulations to Elsie's littermate / brother, Charlie (Varazs Kedvesem Final Frontier), who picked up 3 more points towards his Championship over the weekend at the Oakville show after taking Best of Opposite Sex on Friday over a Grand Champion for 1 point and Winners Dog, Best of Winners and Best of Breed on Sunday for 2 more points!  Now he is sitting on the 'dreaded 9' meaning he needs only 1 point to finish.  We call it the 'dreaded 9' because it can sometimes take a long time to get that final point.

new UKC Agility title holder -

And lastly, Diva and I participated in United Kennel Club agility trials in Puslinch Ontario and she earned her Agility Level 1 title with scores of 196, 198 and 199 out of 200.  Diva is the first dog ever to earn a UKC agility title in Ontario (and possibly Canada) since this was the very first UKC agility trial held in this province (and possibly this country).  She earned 3 first places finishes and a High in Trial on Sunday. (Yes, the UKC gives out HIT rosettes for agility although this club didn't have the rosettes to give out that day.)  This was Diva's 18th title!!  She's now officially known as CKC/Int'l/UKC CH Varazs Kedves Quickstep CKC: FDJ, AgNJ, AGI, RN, PCD, CGN, AKC: JH, NA, NAJ, RN, CGC UKC: URO1, CA, AGI
