American Sheltie National

We're excited as it's less than 24 hrs before our Junior Puppy girl, Shelamo Flash Forward makes her debut in the US at the American Sheltie National with handler Cheryl Pike!

I've heard she's already stealing people heart's as they pass by her in the xpen.

American Sheltie National Results

For anyone interested in following the results, as they happen, on the ASSA National this week, in St Louis, MI @ the Purina Farms ( ) you can find them here

Wish I was there to see it, however, husband's needing assistance with a knee replacement come 1st! At least 2 of our girls will be represented.



Sunday was a whirlwind day ... Mary-Anne & Marylou were here to help bath some dogs, brush others out, do some nails.

The weather was so weird .. it was really windy 24-50 k/hr gusts, would go from dark grey clouds, to rain, to snow, ice pellets and then all of a sudden out would come the sun. We were wondering if we could get some quick pics of Pumpkin in. A quick run outside showed it was sunny with just some fluffy clouds ... great! I'll quickly do her up and will get some pics. Well in less than 20 mins, it was dark & raining ... poop. Ok, back in the crate, let's see if we can get another opportunity ??? Well, we did ... the 3 of us rushed outside, tried to find the least windy spot and went at it.

Aunti MA, I see you coming!

How many more times are you going to throw that squeaky Marylou?
Ok, guys, I've had enough of following you around, time to go in ...

Pumpkin is the litter sister to our Shelamo Flash Forward (ptd), Breeze.

Speedy Shaymus & Our Other Agility Stars

I swear there are several of our clients doing agility with their dogs that are going to have to organize a human agility exercise program, just to keep in tip top shape to keep up with their speedy agility dogs.

Lynn reports that Shaymus has increased his speed phenomenally with their new trainer and it's getting harder for her to keep up with him. Here are the recent photos she's sent me.

look at that tight turn after the tire

Lynn says ... "He now has his Advanced AAC Games title, his Intermediate CKC Standard and Jumpers with Weaves Title and one leg of his Excellent Jumpers With Weaves in CKC with a first place. He needs one more Standard Q in AAC to be in Masters everything. He is a really fun Steeplechaser too."

I guess they get added to these ones too!


I'm having problems keeping track of every one's titles, they are racking up so quickly ...

Kate is doing well with her new girl Tula, and her Panda still can show the young ones at 13+ yrs of age how it's done, plus she's considering entering him in the Novice C division of obedience trials this summer just for the fun of it.

Linda is going strong with ATCH Gryphon (he's featured in the recent issue of Sheltie Pacesetter), plus he just added 2 more 1st place & Best Runs earning his Master Steeplechase Dog of Canada Title. He needs 3 more standard runs to get his Bronze Award of Merit, and BPIS Ch Whistler (a Travis brother) is tearing up the course in his training.

Chantelle is working hard with both her Travis (sister to our Ch Chinook), and new boy Indie.

Jack has his spiked shoes on, as his girl Tic is keeping his heart rate up with her speed.

Saying Good-bye

It is never easy to say good-bye. And when it's a long time client, whose dogs call your home their 2nd home, it breaks our hearts as much as theirs. This gal was just here for a short stay a month ago.

On April 6th, Ceilidh @ 14 1/2 yrs of age, feel asleep peacefully after a short battle of extreme kidney failure.

Opps ... sorry I woke you dear ...
Ceilidh at our previous house, always enjoyed laying in our bay window

You were a joy to have here and we'll miss you dearly. Am sure some of our dogs that went before you were there to greet you at the Rainbow Bridge.
