A quiet start to February. I had intended to send Titan away with a friend to Bega but at the last minute he didnt go, so i'd only entered Summer in a small country show about 1.5hrs away.
There we set up with Steph and Simon from Dawnus Kennels (Field Spaniels and Aussie Shepherds)
It was a lovely day and the show was reasonably quick with nothing too exciting to report.
We then headed to Bermagui for a week of relaxation and holidays with a couple of shows thrown in for the dogs.
As i had to take them all with me, i'd entered all 4 but knowing i couldnt run them all, Mel Scriven from Lempo Kennels came to the rescue claiming Titan months ago for the weekend.
The first day Summer took a nice 13 point Best of Breed, Titan took Reserve Dog to the 4 year old Challenge winner which was just a thrill and Mischa took Neuter in Group. I should've called it quits then as we didnt do nearly as well the rest of the weekend and Titan found the whole thing rather tiring backing up a late evening show with an early morning start. He wasnt impressed but perked up after a big sleep.
Mischa was the true star of the weekend showing all 4 shows plus competing in two Rally Trials.
The first one, she was a superstar, but i made too many mistakes and the second trial we qualified with a 93/100.
We are so thrilled and just knew she could do it. We've now been bitten by the bug and will be seeking out more Rally Trials to enter.
We finished the month with the Canberra Royal Show. Titan and Summer again were entered and Summer was a little crazy and excited to be out and have other Lappies at the show. Titan was a regular little trooper and showed so well for me so soon after Bermagui. Nothing exciting to report but it was lovely to see Jacqualine Lincoln up here with her gorgeous boy Louis and the lovely Emmi taking out Best of Breed and Runner Up.
