So Proud

I am so proud of both Hillcrest What a Wake Up Call (Reveille) and Hillcrest Zest (Zesty) for their performance at the AKC Nationals. On Day 1 Barb Davis and Zesty were on the winning State Team (Northwest). Zesty finished in 3rd Place overall!!!
Today the dogs had 2 rounds, Jumpers With Weaves and Standard. Reveille (Kate x Quid) is sitting in 19th out of 123 dogs in the 24" class. Reveille had an 8th place finish in JWW this afternoon.
Zesty (Kate x Mirk) is running in the 26" class. She is sitting in 8th out of 23 after both rounds.
Tomorrow is the Hybrid class.

Will wait for scores from tomorrow now.

All of the Havoc x Singe puppies have been leaving to their new homes. Half left when they were 8 weeks and then 2 left these last couple of days. Trouble is the only puppy that is looking for a home. I have been enjoying spending time with him after his littermates have left. He is a very sweet boy that loves attention. He has been running with the big dogs off and on lately. He goes running in the front field with all of our other dogs. He tracks the ball about 30 feet and will retrieve it back to me. This is all amongst the big dogs. When he is hanging in the backyard he does not bother the older dogs and he and Fusion (3/4 sister to Trouble) love to play. He seems to be very mature for his age.
We will have fun with him until he finds the right home.

I'm Baaaackkkk

Things got a bit hectic here, so I didn't blog. The Havoc x Singe puppies have been leaving to their new homes. We have 2 more leave on Wednesday and Thursday. Now that they can escape the puppy pen I will be glad that they go to their new owners. We have one male that is still looking for his forever home. Trouble (puppy name) is looking for a performance/working home only. He is very driven and needs to work. He is crate trained and has started on basic training. Boy does he love to work.
Fusion, Jen x Singe, has been progressing nicely through puppyhood. She is now 6 months old and is lovely. She LOVES to work, but also loves to come in and cuddle with us. We have been working on her not helping herself to the sheep. We now have her where she will lay outside of the sheep pen while we do chores. Murray has one heck of an agility and herding dogs on his hands. I think I am a little jealous, AGAIN. Last year I stole his Lash to trial. Who knows if I will giver her back this year. Lash and I made it to the DAM finals at Cynosports and placed up in the top.
I was over at Karen Child's place and took some great pictures of her dogs. We are breeding our Skarlet to Karen's Rock. This litter should produce some very working dogs.
Mick, Havoc and Skarlet also had a great time working at Karen's.
Life has gotten busy lately because Connor is now playing soccer and I am the coach. It is hilarious to watch them play.
I will take new pictures of Trouble and post them.
