Southern Star Ruby Roux RN, CGC
and owner Stefanie Matak scored big this past weekend (97 & 100) earning her Advanced Rally Title. Ruby needs just 1 more Q to complete her Beg Novice OB title as well. In her spare time Ruby also competes in conformation but really thinks its a little too slow paced for her. Ruby is the 18m old daughter of Rimfire Ty and out of Linderlands Flying High aka "Raven".

The Cooper kids did their mom proud again. In Norman, OK Teacup Dog Agility Assn trial, Cupcake earned titles in Teacup Games (TG1) and in beginner standard (TBAD). Mia earned the final legs needed for her TG3 title (takes 5 legs), and Bailey earned 3 legs towards her TSAD (superior standard) and games legs toward her advanced games title. Our special surprise was to have cousins Kirk and Spice attend with their mom, Cheryl Warren, driving all the way from Louisiana. One especially fun game we played was a tag team game involving 1 dog and 2 handlers. We found out that with the right incentive (food in a closed container) that our dogs would run agility with someone else.

Cooler and son waiting for a treat!! 

Calling all members who would like to see well written articles, brochures, and pamphlets with beautiful pictures for/about our dogs published



I need volunteers to assist with the Public Relations Committee. One of the first projects is to put together a feature article for the SHOWSIGHT Magazine. These are exciting times in the history of our club and your help and input is much needed. Please let me know through a private email if you would be willing to help with the all-important advertising for our club moving forward in full recognition in AKC. There are other very important items that need our attention as well. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to participate and help get the job done. Together we can have great information, beautiful pictures about our wonderful breed, information about their personalities and trait, along with their accomplishments all published for the public to see. It is my hope that we can form an outstanding PR Committee so we can share with the public how far we have come with our breed. Please consider this committee as your way to help get the information into print for our breed.

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!
