Nationals Wrap

Yes, I know I'm a lot late in getting this posted. With that being said, I'm not going to rehash any of the events, as you can easily find them on multiple blogs.

But, I will brag on my kids and tell you how we did! :o)

  • Bear got his Herding Instinct Certificate
  • Phantom made the cut in the Megan competition
  • Phantom was 4th in Stud dog, with Bear and Frank as his progeny
  • Bear's mom Marge was 2nd in Brood Bitch with Frank and Russ as her progeny
  • Dove was 4th in the 9-12 month bitch class

We also had tons of rave reviews on all of the kids (even Ransom who was the group mascot), so it was a very productive and rewarding week.

On to Seward this weekend!!

First Word In From Nationals

From what we heard, it's been a rainy, miserable couple of days that were topped off by a ruined pair of shoes, waterlogged cell phone, mud, and soaking wet clothes and hair. Yup, you guessed was the Herding Trial!! Combine this with last year's hail storm and I guess someone Upstairs is having a lot of fun with the herding folks!!

Poor Bekka lost a pair of shoes and isn't sure just how much longer her cell phone will work, as it was in her jacket pocket, which got soaked, hence the waterlogging. What a way to start off your first Nationals!! At least the rest of the week is indoors, so at least we'll be clean and dry!

On the Herding instinct front, Bear and Russ (of Cardi Corgi Capers fame) passed their instinct tests. Way to go boys!!!

We are leaving this afternoon for Topeka, and can't wait for the fun to begin!

See you there!!
