Turkey day was quiet.  The weather was nice.  I was going to do agility but as my luck would have it, a dog exposed to a nasty strain of Parvo at the ASCA Nationals was competing so with Lizzy pup at home I opted out.  There will be more trials!

Work is practically killing me we are so busy, thank gawd I can bring Lizzy with me.  She is a great break from the office.

Otherwise that is about it.  I will keep you all posted!

This is the new kid...I am so in love with this puppy.

She is so smart, so confident, so get-up-and-go.  She already was at 3 trials, met landscapers at work with wheelbarrows and ride on mowers, kids in strollers and took it all in stride.  She is into EVERYTHING and has an opinion about it.  Perfect for me.  I don't want a wallflower.

She is Priscilla's half sister through the sire and Ryka's half sister through the dam.

No official registered name yet but she is from the Ice litter so we will see...  :)

New Title!

CC finally got her NJP agility title at Dream Park this past Saturday with a clean run and a first place!  All her legs so far were clean.  Her weave poles are just awesome too.

She is now Cool Sensation z Domu Polanki RN NFP NJP CGC TN-N WV-N NJC!  Go CC Go!

Now we will be trying to get those last 4 singles so we dont have to play foo foo dog show anymore.

Post Hurricane

My childhood memories...all gone.

Millions of people without power, without homes, over 40 dead.

Hurricane Sandy wiped entire towns off the map in the NY/NJ area.  I grew up in Manahawkin, NJ and lived there as an adult.  My old home is gone.

It has been a week and we still have people without power.  The gas crisis incredible - we have a gas ration in my part of the state.

My heart goes out to those who lost everything.  We were lucky and only lost power for about 4 days and suffered no flooding or damage.

To get a sense of normalcy my local NADAC club hosted their November trial this weekend, on schedule.  I was debating on going and using the gas but I went for it.  I am glad I did.  We are a close knit community and it was fun to get the dogs out to run around.  CC finished her tunnelers, weavers and jumpers titles too!  Iggy Pop finished his weavers title and got another Q towards his superior novice tunnelers title.
