Blitz - Salish Chandrea Cool Runnings CM completed his Beg. Obedience class and graduated top of his class! He wasn't real sure about it after having "stand" drilled in his head from 4 months of age, but caught on quickly. He followed it up a couple days later by passing his CGC Test. So proud of my boy, next up... RALLY (woohoo)
Southern Star Minis
Capt'n Kirk (Flagtree's Cleared for Takeoff [red tri]) made his Rally Novice and Beginner Novice obedience debuts over the weekend. Four runs and 3 Qualifying scores (he dq'd on his 2nd BN leg because he was too friendly with the judge and had to leave his sit/stay to go greet him). Such a happy 10 month old pup.
Spice (Flagtree's Simply Spice [red merle]) was 2/2 in Advanced Rally.
Capt'n Kirk and Spice are owned and handled by Cheryl Warren, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Top ten in the nation and not even 4 years old yet!
