What a great weekend we had!
First, at the Vermont circuit shows, Daisy - GCH Blackthorn's Flower Power continued her winning ways, picked up 3 more BOB wins, with a Group 4 on Sunday. VERY small entry of specials only. Daisy is owned by Bertha Little and Joan Eversole and expertly presented by Jeff Langevin.
And at an agility trial in New Hampshire her siblings:
Am/Can CH Blackthorn Violet of Patchmt Am/Can TD NA OAJ qualified in both her Open Standard and Open Jumpers courses on Saturday to finish her Open Jumpers titleand get a second leg on her Standard title. Violet was run by Linda McSherry.
Am/Can CH Blackthorn Coreopis of PatchMt Am/Can TDX RN NA NAJ qualified in Open Standard to pick up his second leg. Corey would have qualified on all his runs if his inept handler would quit sending him over the wrong obstacles and through the wrong tunnel entrances! I had such great attention and he was so tuned into me. What a good boy he was all weekend.
AND, most importantly, not to be left out, their mother:
CH CT PatchMt C Pepper N Paisley (with her many titles) qualifed in her Open Jumpers Preferred run to finish that title. That gives Carina a total of about 23 titles in AKC and CKC events! Now she can just relax and enjoy trail rides for a while.
And, never ones to be bored, Linda McSherry and I got to meet and evaluate the puppies for the Corey and Holly litter. Their pictures can be seen at: http://blackthorndalmatians.com/HollyCoreyPups.html.
We couldn't be happier with this litter. Complete trim, dark, dark brown eyes, good hearing numbers, pretty puppies. Thanks Ann for bringing them all the way to New Hampshire and special thanks to Karen Rochin for flying in to see the litter. It was a great visit.
And, anyone interested in doing agility in New Hampshire in the summer this is a great site - at least in my opinion. Indoor sports complex, huge creating area, rings on padded artificial turf and most important Air Conditioned! Thank you Yankee Golden Retriever Club.
