Gryphon Wins BIG

Huge CONGRATS to Linda Howie and her boy Gryphon. On May 19th, he achieved his Expert Standard Bronze Agility title, also earning him his VBA, or Bronze Versatility Award. Now I'm not up on all the requirements for these titles, but am told that for the 1st one the dog has to have 10 Q's in the master standard runs, and for the VBA needs 10 master standard runs & 25 master games ... that's a lot of running in my opinion! And he did it in the semi-dark.

this boy turns 11 this fall!

New Champion, New Puppies

pups 3 days old
It's been busy here at our kennel since last Wednesday. Our girl CH Shelamo That's Amore decided she was going to have puppies, altho not until the wee hours of Thursday morning. In the end we have 2 girls and 1 boy, sired by our BPIS CH Shelamo's Riding The Sky HIC. The rest of Thursday was spent getting Breeze & Pumpkin ready for the Arnprior Dog Show. We were really feeling the lack of sleep by the end of the day.

An early morning rise and we were off to the dog show.

It was a successful weekend all the way around. We now have Ch Shelamo Flash Forward. She garnered 2 Group 3rds, 4 Best Puppy In Breeds, and 3 Best Puppy In Group.

In her 1st show on Friday - Group 3rd & BPIG

Where's the Best Place to Break Down?

Has to be a Tim Hortons!! and right at the window. You can order anytime.

Yep, on Sunday, early afternoon I stopped at a TH's drive thru, got my coffee and went to shift out of Park and got as far as Reverse and the shift jammed. No way was it moving; I kept trying, nothing I did would get it to move. Of course I started to sweat thinking of all those behind me wondering what on earth was taking so long! I could start to hear some horns honking. Oh lordy. I got on the phone to CAA for assistance, meanwhile the staff when out and helped everyone back-up and they put closed signs out. The girl at the window would peak out every once in awhile and ask if I needed anything ... another coffee maybe?
Took CAA about an hour to show up, meanwhile I'd made arrangements for friends to come and bring me our 2nd van (I was a good 45 mins from home) and the van was towed to a dealer near home. Turns out it does need a new gear shifter (think that's what they called it), and that part won't arrive till tomorrow. Van's under warranty, so god bless that!
