Someday I hope to have big brags like others here. But for now, we have this! (Gotta start somewhere).

Natalia Dougherty with Carla Boyd and Deborah Karfs.
Yesterday GCH Onyx earned her CA title and had the greatest time doing so! Her first run was 1 minute and 5 seconds! Thank you Chris Karfs for taping it! My daughter Brittany and I went to NJ for the weekend and had a great time talking with akkita peeps Deb and Chris Karfs and Carla Boyd and seeing Lolo, Pawlee and Miss Trible!! Sissy D.

Deborah Karfs with Natalia Dougherty.

Had a wonderful time with Natalia Dougherty this weekend trying some lure coursing. Sissy and Brittany, thanks for coming all the way to Jersey. Here is a picture of us with our fabulous pups, Onyx and Lolo, on Saturday morning after a run. Onyx was a rockstar and titled and Lolo had a ball, managing to even get a Q. Will certainly be doing more lure coursing. Big thank you to the West Coasters for inspiring us.

This past weekend we attended a trial at a new organization, US Canine Scent Sports. Kiki found something interesting in interiors but wasn't odor, THAT was across the room. Did well at exteriors, and a game called 'Go the Distance' where you work away from your dog. The day I went we had two container searches and I made the same mistake twice. They were back to back and I didn't get a chance to reflect on the first one. All in all it was a great trial with low level stress!

Just wanted to share that my birthday boy, Porter, has a new VA title ~ I'm very proud of this boy and what we've accomplished together so far. Porter is my first show dog and the first dog I've titled in conformation, rally and obedience. Happy 4th birthday to my special boy, GCH Ursa Major's Deschutes Dark BN RN CGCA VA

it's official, just waiting for the PACH certificate to arrive!!! 4 titles in one day, MXP4, MJP4, PAX and PACH has got to be a record!

I think I forgot to post this (total) brag here. Kiyo & Toka rocked recent barn hunt trials. 1 y.o. Toka earned 2 legs to his RATN with 2 first place finishes! Kiyo took the weekend by storm, earning her open title with one second place finish and TWO back to back High In Trials placements! How lucky I am to have such great dogs grace my life.

Kyoki earned her Open title in Barn Hunt today. Seaisland's Synchronicity with a bunch of letters I'm not sure of the order they go in after her registered name! Thank you, Louise Davie for entrusting me with this smart, loving, loyal Hunter! I can't imagine my life without her!
