Riley Show News & Other Happenings...

So, I know it has been a little while since I updated the blog. It just seems time flies when one is super busy! I can hardly believe that the Ditchas will be 9 months old at the end of the month. I can still remember them as little furry slugs! Lol
Riley is back home on a little break from dog shows (with handler Barbara Weiner) since she has singled out on her points. She is now on the hunt for majors. I am super proud of my little smooshie! She accomplished all of her singles from the 6-9 month puppy class. :-) Riley will try for majors in Ft Worth next week and then it is off to the Cardigans National in Ohio at the end of April. Brindle brother Rango in New Mexico has garnered 1 point as well! :-) Rango and Killian will be attending the Nationals also.
Meko in San Francisco attended her first herding instinct test not too long ago and it seems the results were good. Mom Julie is very proud of the Fluffernutter and so am I! I see herding titles in Meko's future. She must take after daddy Chase.
Sable brother Owen (f.k.a. Torch) now resides in California with his new owner Sarah. She has been training him in canine nose work and will also be trying him out on sheep. From all accounts he is a very smart and sweet boy! Now there are 2 Owens in this litter. I guess I will have to refer to them as Owen in Oregon and Owen in California! :-o

  1. Riley is growing up to be a lovely girl. I know we'll hear great things about Torch as Sarah teaches him to talk and to play the piano. I'm looking forward to seeing you and all the cardis in Ohio.

    Posting a comment from the phone is a major pain because of the new two word captcha -- so I read the posts, but comments have to wait until I'm at the real computer.
