October 25th, Thanks to Jane McNee, Dash had the opportunity to
meet some Shetland sheep. How appropriate. Within a few moments
he had his lightbulb moment and started to move in half circles
around them. My job was to stay with the sheep. I was not great
at my part of the deal, but Dash held up his end. It was great
to see him turned on by what this breed was bred to do.
and Tobby were at their first obedience test for pre-novice

in the first six months of his life has been exposed to
agility, a bit of obedience and tracking. I hope to
introduce him to sheep before the snow arrives to see how
strong his herding instincts are. He loves agility and
after only 3 tracks had a good idea what the game of
tracking was all about. He is starting obedience
classes this fall.
spring I plan to continue with agility and tracking.
fall I will have him tested to be a St.John's
Ambulance Therapy Dog to certify him to go into schools,
hospitals and nursing homes to visit children and the
elderly.. This I feel will be his most important job.
Most of all he will be my second best friend (Lyric my ten
year old sheltie is the first).. Maybe this makes him my
best male sheltie friend... We will become even closer
together as we begin "The Journey"
you Pat , we wish you & Dash good Journey

Just a quickie note - you should all be proud of your team!
a spectaculr effort over the weekend, bringing home so many
trophies & ribbons that they needed boxes to fit it all
in. It was
truly a team effort, and they all pitched in attain success!
only did we have multiple podium appearances throughout the
Individual and Biathlon events, but we topped the weekend
taking the Bronze in the Team event - against very tough
and did I mention we had two 12" dogs - Target &
Minnie - along with
Kayl and her 22" girlies on the Bronze medal team?
Pretty cool to so
those little guys kick some butt with some assistance from
Special applause to Marie-Pierre St-Louis and her 12"
Minnie: Marie-Pierre is just 12 years old. Not only did she
Bronze on the Individual Gamblers class and run well all
she was also the anchor dog for the Canada team that took
medal. Pretty impressive to put in 3 fast, clean runs under
pressure to help get us on the podium! I believe
Marie-Pierre is the
youngest handler to ever reach the podium at any World
