We were so busy this weekend, running back and forth from Agility, Obedience, and Conformation to catch all our friends compete, that I didn’t get any photos so I thought I’d post some photos of Gizzy’s first AKC run January 2010. Gizzy got 24 points for his Standard run and was so fast that Joel couldn’t keep up with him. The Judge told Joel that he and Gizzy will make a “killer team” someday. Joel’s trainer Sue walked the course with him and they went over all the possibilities together. The video is hilarious. I also posted it on our … Continue reading

When we were in Corvallis and the Agility Trail there was a “Fun Match” going on in the barn next door. I entered Spud to see how he’d do. His movement was awesome. The judge told me; “He was a beautiful little dog and he has a perfect top line and tail set”. She really liked him and said he has a very bright future in the Show ring. Below is a photo of Spud when we brought him home, we had no idea that he was going to grow up and be a Show Dog.
