This morning I must have been more quiet than usual because I caught the pups and Winston just waking up. It must’ve been a three dog night! I want to emphasize how unusual it is for two adult male GSDs to get along so well. See See will be going into heat within a month,Continue reading “Good Morning”

Black female German Shepherd with eight newborn puppies needs rescued from shelter in Georgia!!
Last weekend, I showed for 4 out of 5 days at Doswell. I got one win, Clyde’s first point! Thank you Judge Albert Bianchi! Clyde is starting to look good. Filling out nicely as he approaches age 2. After the shows, I transported 3 rescues with Whole Lotta Love dog transport out of a groupContinue reading “Clyde the show dog! First point! And transporting rescue dogs again…”
Yesterday was a long day! We went to Hampton, Virginia and participated in two dog obedience trials in one day. This was towards the last two legs to get the Beginner Novice title for Johnny. It was also his 9th birthday along with his sister Jane. Between the two shows, Johnny and I went toContinue reading “Happy Birthday to Johnny and Jane, Johnny gets BN obedience title, and the beach”
See See saw a sheep! She was on a leash though, and then there is that whole fence thing, but I think I saw a spark of herding instinct! In case anyone can’t spell German shepherd, remember that they are sheep herders. So it’s not Shephard, Shepard or Sheperd, it’s shepherd. Shephard, Shepard, or SheperdContinue reading “See See at Crump Park in Glen Allen and a spell check”
Just another day in dog class. Thank you Michael, for the pics! Today we “rotated” dogs, “judges”, and handlers, so that after each dog was examined, that “judge” then took the dog as the handler to the end of the line, and so on. So I got a fresh perspective as a “judge”. The firstContinue reading “Dog class and Tiger Woods”
The VKC has handling classes on Wednesday nights in Goochland, and it is worth the drive! Last night we had Tom Dowell teaching the class, and lots of attendees. (The smaller dogs attend in a separate class at 6:30, with the big dogs at 7:15.) It was great to have a new perspective and aContinue reading “VKC dog handling class with AKC breeder, judge, and professional handler Tom Dowell”
On Sunday, I volunteered for the “Big Fluffy Dog” organization, and transported Sawyer, a lab mix puppy (neither big nor fluffy), from Stafford to Richmond. This time I dropped off directly to the new owner!
Winston is now Ch. Sir Winston Churchill Out of Sight BCAT CD! The CD replaces the BN because it is a higher obedience title. It stands for Companion Dog. Winston got his required 3 qualifying scores in three consecutive shows in two days. I am proud! He is so smart and easy to train.
