My Tilly is AWESOME!

Posted on Updated on

I suppose I should be more modest about the wins we have had the last three weeks. Really, it is having such a beautiful, biddable girl that is so loving and willing to please that is the reward. Middle of May I bragged about her Junior Hunter title. Still smiling about that!

And now, at my Packerland Kennel Club’s spring agility trial, she has outdone herself again! We went into this trial having earned, also in the middle of May, two jumpers and one standard leg. And this weekend, she gave me her all and earned her Novice Agility Standard Preferred and her Novice Agility Jumpers Preferred, all six legs with a first place! And then I moved her up and she now has her first Open Jumpers Preferred leg.

What’s in store for her now? Well, we are training for her Senior Hunter and will continue working in agility. Maybe a litter down the road….

A BIG thank you to all at Packerland Kennel Club for your support and friendship. Truly means a lot!

“Someone’s in the Kitchen” —– with Karen!

Posted on Updated on

“Here are Pete (Fox River Legacy Oh For Pete’s Sake THDX RATCH CGC TKA) and Ernie (Fox River Importance of Being Ernest TKI) in their winning photo for National Purebred Dog Day’s annual photo contest. ( The contest has various themes and people take pictures of their dogs to illustrate the themes. This year, one of the themes was “Someone’s in the Kitchen.” Pete and Ernie are always willing helpers in the kitchen, especially if I’m baking dog treats. The prize was a nice paw-shaped cutting board from the AKC PAC, along with some other goodies they added, and lots of very nice comments from viewers of NPDD’s Facebook page.”

Thanks for sharing this delightful and tasty looking photo Karen!
