Priscilla update

I haven't updated on my favorite pooch in awhile.

Priscilla has suspicious looking tumors in her mammary glands - my local vet found them during a routine exam, and I somehow missed during my daily check. (Another good reason to get the dogs felt up once a year by the doctor).

They sent needle aspirations to the lab and the report wasnt too hot looking.  So she needs them out with hopefully clean margins and she is going to get spayed while she is under for good measure. 

I am extremely nervous.  Priscilla has always been a happy healthy dog - and she is the same age Darien, my greyhound was when he got diagnosed with inoperable prostate cancer. 

This is also costing me a lot of money that I do not have, so lean Christmas for everyone (at least from me.  But I am a scrooge anyhow).

Staten Island Dog Training Club / Garden State Norwegian Elkhound Club

CC got a big Goose Egg both days at the Staten Island trial.  My timing needs to be better with her.

However Ryka got her NJP and NAP titles!  with all clean runs!  She is the fastest titling dog I had to get out of novice.

Next up was the Sunday at the Norwegian Elkhound Trial.  We didnt in Saturday so I moved our entries to Sunday.

Ryka got her first Open Jumpers Leg but had 2 refusals in Standard. 

CC finished her Open Standard title!  WOO HOO!  We got an NQ in jumpers for her popping out of the weaves but it was lovely.  One of those heartbreaking runs. 

Now to enter CC in the Westminster agility trial and to see if we get in.

October was a good month for us.  

Both Lzzy and Ryka passed their CGC tests!

Ryka went 3 for 3 in novice jumpers and 3 for 4 in novice standard to get her first agility titles!

CC now needs one AJP leg and one OAP leg...
