THANK YOU CenMAS for Hosting the Sanctioned B Match!!
CenMAS AKC Sanctioned B Match (3/17/13)
What a great way to spend St. Patrick's Day, fun people, in a great place with wonderful dogs. CenMAS hosted their first event in Valparaiso, Indiana. Great turnout with 14 Miniature American Shepherds. Not bad for our first AKC Sanctioned B Match.
Congrats to the two newbies - Scott Hubbard and Kyle Anderson for showing at their first show - the pups did great!
Special thanks to Alice Kenyon for being Secretary and our judge Leslie Baumann of Canine Connect Dog Sports for judging us and guiding us in our first AKC event. Leslie has over 40 years of experience breeding and as past President of her National breed club.
Thank you Canine Country Club for letting us use your wonderful facility, and to Mary Tamer for doing the handling seminar. Also Barb organized a wonderful raffle. And better not forget to thank our photographer Bill Ogle - nice pictures, especially under such low light.
Looking forward to our upcoming CenMAS events, and hopefully gaining more members to join in the fun.

I sure enjoy watching Agility Videos starring Tru and Donna!
Tru and Icy had such a nice run in Master jumpers, that I wanted to capture the two runs together. It won't be long before Tru catches Icy's times! Tru earned his Open STd title, and earned his first EX leg in std today. Icy earned 3 double Q's this weekend...going 6 for 6...so a great weekend for us!

The Tuesday Talk is now only available to current MASCUSA members. Keep your membership updated!
According to the Records Manager for Entries, Betty Nightingale at ext 3585: "There are no Champions in the FSS or Misc class. The dogs can earn a CM.
People should not be listing CH as in Champion in front of the dog's entries for AKC shows"
Teacup Treasures Leather n Lace Diva starting early on working cows!! Not sure the cow is intimidated though!
I think that the Working Aussie Source is one of the best locations on the net to find herding trials and clinics!
The opening page is for ASCA Trials but be sure and click on the Other Calendars and the Regional Calendars and other Events of Interest!
AKC HERDING TRIALS!
The Miniature American Shepherd is eligible to compete immediately in AKC Herding Trials! As soon as you receive your AKC/FSS number you can enter an AKC Herding Trial.

If you have earned an AKC Herding Title please let me know,
Now that we are eligible to compete in AKC Herding Trials, we want to acknowledge those dogs who are out there earning titles and legs towards titles.
