Since I didn't start this blog until October, it will be pretty brief :)
One of the most fun things we did this year was go out to Chino, CA in June to escape the desert heat for a bit and finish up Dante and Izzi's Coursing Ability Advanced titles. While we were out there we got to hang out with our Kerry Blue Terrier friends from Lighthouse KBTs and visit with Izzi's sister Sunshine and her family. Cira came with for her first overnight roadtrip and did very well. She was too young to run a real coursing ability test, but did a fun run & was awesome - we expect her to start getting qualifying legs in the Coursing Ability test very soon.
October 31 & November 1st
Great weekend! Izzi finished her UKC Ch.. Firenze went Best of Breed 1 out of the 2 shows he was entered in and on to a Group 2. Chuda finished his UKC Ch in one weekend going Best of Breed 3 out of the 4 shows (losing once to his grandpa Firenze) and won the Northern Group to finish. Lots of compliments on this young boy's movement.
Taylor won Best Junior twice..other highlights were Dasha and her junior handler taking a 4th, 2nd and 1st in a big Novice Junior class and Chuda and his handler also taking a 4th - more importantly both kids improved everytime they went in the ring and they had fun with their sams.
