We traveled to Goleta this summer and had another fun time doing agility. Scooter earned his Elite Veterans Regular and Jumper titles and Solo earned his Elite Jumper title as well as Q's towards his Elite Regular and ATCH titles. BIG thank you to my friend and super handler Cindy Deter who accumulated 5 of the 7 Q's this weekend as a "push" to the tunnel tore my hamstring and I was relegated to a cheerleader! Good dogs for running for their friend Cindy and great handling of different dogs for Cin!
Matching Bat Dog Scootie!!
Wizard was recently awarded his ROMX-II sire title from the AKC. Sires earn designations for having various levels of titled progeny. ROMX-II is awarded for having offspring with 15 AKC titles with at least 2 titles from each of three categories of confirmation, obedience/rally and performance. Congrats Wiz!
Sirius, CH Del Sol's Irresistible Magic, owned by Carol Roberts, has earned his Supreme Versatility Champion title (SVCH) by completing his Elite titles in Agility. To earn this designation, a dog must have a Working Trial Champion (WTCH) title for stock, a confirmation Champion (CH) title (of course, Sirius was the 2008 ASCA Nationals Best of Breed) and either the Elite agility titles or the obedience Utility Dog (UD) title. Quite an accomplishment for a tremendous dog!
Just another day at the office for Erin Welch and Magnum, CH Casa Blanca's Magnum Blast. They were Best of Breed champs at the Ocean View show in August, adding another to their consistent string of breed awards!
We've been having FUN at agility! Solo and Scooter are improving every trial and our trial in Fillmore was no exception. Scooter earned 3 Q's in Elite Regular and Elite Jumpers. Fun AND success!
Solo has been having agility fun too! At Fillmore he earned 4 Q's in Elite Jumpers and Open Regular, earning his Open Regular title.
Fun in the snow! Another spring trip to Mammoth - Scooter is Mr. Snow.
