Fall is here
Zeeba High in Trial
Blu ribbon from Agility at Susquenango
It seems that since Mom uses Facebook every day she hardly ever updates our blog. Zeeba started out the summer with Lyme disease again and missed a few trials but is running great again. He now has 8 QQs and 816 MACH points. Those dropped bars have cut down on the QQ total. Robin has switched to preferred and is ExA preferred in std and Open P in jumpers. Zeeba has picked up some placements as well, even a couple of blue ribbons. At our last show we had an adventure because the RV wouldn't start and we were stranded at the Westfield fairgrounds. Our friend Lois gave Mom and Zeeba and Robin a ride home while Dad waitied until the nice mechanic managed to get the vehicle on the road. He made it home safely but the RV is still in the shop getting it's wiring repaired. The leaves are turning colors so it really looks like Fall here now. Besides agility Zeeba also showed in Obedience for his CDX title with 3 first places and a High in Trial. Now he's trying hard to learn Utility without barking all the time.
My passion is working with animals and promoting the welfare of our companions especially dogs. I've been training and teaching dog obedience a looong time and more recently competing in dog agility trials.
