This year is all about dog sports. The beginning of February I had Gaia and Punky in a Novice Jumping competition. They haven't been to Agility training for 6+ months, but they didn't forget their stuff. Both girls ran really well and didn't knock down any bars. Neither gained qualifying scores, but they certainly showed they can still remember how to do it.

Congratulations to Juliet and Khamsin on title number 2 for this year. Down at the Bermagui shows and trials they achieved pass number 3 for his Novice Rally title and in their first attempt in the Obedience ring, scored a qualification in CCD. So Khamsin will now have RN at the end of his name.

13 January 2024 - Trick Trial at Belconnen Dog Obedience Club

Ki participated in his first Tricks trial and did really well. He completed all 6 of his tricks with a non-stop wagging tail and gained his first pass in the Starters class

Gaia and Khamsin (with Juliet) were both going for their third pass in starters and were successful so they will now have the TK.S. title after their name. It is a great start to the year with 2 new dog sports titles.

Gaia's critique from Linda Costa ‘A correctly proportioned and balanced bitch who showed moderation in all things. She has a lovely head and expression, good bone and feet and moved extremely well. To me, she is of a classic Ridgeback style. Hard to find any glaring fault’.

Sadly, the end of September saw us having to say our last goodbyes to Zeus. His mind was still active, but his back legs were giving out on the poor boy. He wasn't enjoying life as much as he used to. He is deeply missed but lives on in his kids.
