Honouring my Heart and Soul in DOG in Canada...here is the ad I purchased to help me brag to the world about my wonderful, wonderful boy:
Wow- Whatta weekend...we spent it at the Sheltie Trial in Cloverdale, BC. Jazz and Ella showed in all four trials, both days. For our efforts we came home with:
-8 Q's (now THAT is entry fees well spent! <g>
-Two shiny new titles (one apiece!)
Jazz finished his Rally Advanced B titel- with first place finishes for all three legs
Ella finished her Rally Novice B title AND she also earned two legs with very respectable scores towards her Rally Advanced B Title. In fact, Ella was only ONE measley :-) point behind her brother in the Advanced B class. Look out brother Jazz - Ella's hot on your heels!
Miss Ella sporting her brand new Can Rally Noivce title!

Jazz earned his first AKC Open leg at the Lynden Washington show on the weekend. It was a very large class and Jazz took first place!
In case you're wondering what that mischevious look is on Jazz man's face is all about - it's because he was a little naughty -- he took a little excursion on the free heel figure 8 - taking a high jump there and back- perfectly remaining in heel position before and after the jump -- the judge was bemused and shocked - and only docked us 3.5 points <g> - We still managed to pull of a first place finish!!! The monkey had me giggling the whole run--- and it's a performance I'll never forget!!
At the same show Ella earned her first two Rally Advanced legs. We had great runs both days, and Ella took second place on Sunday, with a wonderful performance and a lovely score of 98...beating out two other dogs with tie scores on time...(we were quick like bunnies -- our time was 1:33)
my pretty girl with her ribbon! Good job my baby girl!
