CC playing show dog!
We also had an AWESOME photo shoot on the 10th with M Nicole Fischer Photography and I can't WAIT to share pictures here.
CC also participated with Iggy Pop at Meet The Breeds at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC. Iggy Pop is just a fantastic dog. He was available for cuddles all day on Sunday. CC did very well too!

Me and Iggy Pop joined our friends Raquel and her Chessie Reign for the NADAC agility trial. This was our first time trying NADAC agility and we were excited to try something different.
I LOVE the courses - fast fast fast courses with tight course times - so if you have a fast dog its for you! Lots of obstacle discrimination as well. I was entered in Jumpers and Tunnelers. Jumpers is just that - jumps. No weaves - makes for fast fun! Tunnelers is also self explanatory - all tunnels. Tunnelers is WICKED fast and its so fun to see the dogs that realize they get to run through tunnel after tunnel.
The BEST part about NADAC is that Cardigans are under their breed exemption! So Iggy Pop can jump 8 inches no problem - he can even jump 4 in Veterans once he is older. Weaves are only found in Weavers and Regular classes and there is no table or teeter in anything. They do use Hoops which are harder than they look.
Iggy Pop qualified in both classes he was entered in with clean runs and first places!!! Go Iggy Pop!

Being hit with a freak winter storm proved fun for the dogs and grumbles from me. Counting our blessings we never lost power. Most of my office folks had lost power so they brought into work everything from dogs to cats to kids.
CC thought the snow was ALL FOR HER! :)
