More good news from Thérèse Gamache & Shilow & Teddy and handler Colette Bolduc. 

Shilow in 2001 with his owner Thérèse finished his CDX and

now 8 years after at the age of 10 years old Shilow with Colette after just 3 weeks of practice together achieved 2 legs in Rally-O. He needs 1 more  leg for Rally-O Novice B.

This proves that a dog never forgets and is always ready to learn

new tricks to please his owner.

April has been a fairly busy month as we prepared for a road trip to the ASSA National Specialty in Perry, Georgia. We shared the long ride with Rober Vézina, Diane Bigger, 7 shelties and all the paraphernalia needed for a 1 week dog show. Needless to say we packed every square inch of our rented van plus a  roof cargo box. The trip down on the 17th was uneventful except for the AC in the van which quit half way there.

Luckily for us the hotel, the show site and a garage were within walking distance of each other. Since they  were predicting high 80F temperatures all week, we knew it was important to get the van's AC fixed at least for the dogs sake. When we took the van to the garage that we found out there was 3 other major safety and maintenance problems. The service guy was extremely helpful because he contacted the rental after I has talked to them without much success and had the necessary things fixed on the guarantee.

Our van troubles aside, we had a grand time at the National. It was held at the Agricultural Center,,, a huge impressive complex of buildings and well maintained grass fields. Plenty of room for everyone in the grooming hall and show hall.

Although we didn't place, our dogs preformed very well in their classes and at this level of competition we are very pleased. We consider the  National to be an important continuing leaning experience for us and we are grateful to see old faces and celebrate their victories in the ring. It is also a time to make new acquaintances and seek out breeding opportunities and ask questions. Everyone is so helpful and friendly at this event.

As for southern hospitality, it is alive and well in Perry, Georgia!



A new year of competition has started for Marie-Pierre & Minnie and Lucie & Dune.
This weekend Ch.Eldee Speed of Sound "Cooper" made his debut at the Club d'Agility Chomeday in Laval.

All the best for this new year
