Shows and trials.

 Last week we were getting ready to two events - Agility trial
and conformation show in Oaks, PA.

 Our puppy Dora was suppose to be shown indoors for the first time.
Therefore we took her to the training class for the first time,
to see how she will react... She was fascinated... with the mirror!

Agility was first thing to do... Coffee with the girls and off we go!

 Baby Dora finished both days with Winner Bitch.
We also went Owner-Handler Group 4!

 Lusha did remarkably well and and went Best Of Opposite Sex (BOS)
both days she was shown. Also she went OHG3.

Great weekend indeed! Many friends, much fun.
It might be our last conformation show for this year.
Season is coming to the end and this is fine...
Much to get ready to in 2017.

As the reason progresses....

As the season progresses, I'm looking back on what we have done this year
together with our four-legged partners... 
it was our second year of owner-handled experience and what a big step it was!
With limited showing, as I dedicated big part of summer
to my painting adventures in both - United States and Europe, by November 2016
we accumulated total of 70 conformation points on several our dogs.

Major part of this job was done by Lusha - Shazzam Of Oz Tactical Solution.
Not only she competed her AKC Championship, but also earn Rally Excellent
working title and well on a way to become AKC Grand Champion of record.

By the latest AKC GR CH points ranking report for the State of PA.
CH Shazzam Of Oz Tactical Solution (Lusha) has position #4 AND
she is top not handled by professional handler Min Schnauzer in State AND
she is the only Min Schnauzer competing for her Grand Championship,
who has working titles on her as well. Go Lusha!

Shazzam Of Oz Just a Joy of Adamis (Gigi) recited her first
AKC Rally title and looking for more!

Shazzam Of Oz Triple Crown (Roy) started competing in Rally Excellent.

Shazzam Of Oz Enchanter (Chant) moved to Rally Advance!

All above mentioned personalities also started in Agility,
but not ready to compete just yet.
All, but Lusha, who got to try her first 3 runs, but so far without the Qs.
The year is not over, more could be done, but winter is coming,
things are calming down and this is how it always suppose to be.
I'm looking forward to winter - time to re-charge,
re-think and get ready for another year full of adventures.

We also planning several outstanding litters closer to the spring time...
Stay tuned, we have some exiting news coming,
or at list I hope so.

It would be nice to update our main web site too, if I ever get to it.
