Brothers – Karch & Beltane (both are littermates to Bru above)
From Elizabeth: I just wanted to give you an update on Karch. I had the pleasure of meeting his littermate Beltane and his Mom Susan at Cleveland All Breed Training Club in Cleveland this weekend. Susan recently relocated from California – what a small world that we would run into each other at a Cleveland Obedience/Rally show.
Karch now has his first leg in Novice B Obedience, as well as two legs (and two second places) in the new class of Pre-Novice. He also has his Rally Novice Title, as well as his Beginner Novice Obedience Title. He has one leg to go for his Agility Novice Jumpers title – hopefully next month. My understanding is that Beltane also had a great weekend with two perfect scores of 100 each day in Rally. Collie Power!!!

Bridhe & Her Lamb
Claire sent this wonderful photo of our co-owned puppy, Deep River Dublinhill Ghost Bride. The photo is one of many great ones taken by our Belgian Teruven friend, Dana M.
Jan B. tell Peggy M. & me: I am so excited about our Hildi girl. She is so eager to learn. I have her entered in Beginner I class, but that is pretty much just for impulse control. Our club had an obedience/rally trial this weekend and on Saturday I took her into the building. Although I obviously, had her on a short lead, she play bowed every dog she saw. It was as if she thought I had arranged a huge playdate for her and she didn’t understand why she couldn’t play with everyone. She knows, I believe, pretty much what will be covered in the class, so primarily for her to learn to control herself in the presence of other dogs…not all other dogs appreciate a “Miss Hospitality”…lol.
