Throwback Thursday - Back To The 80's

Today I'm digging back into the archives and sharing a Winter show photo from the 80's of me and our lovely "Debbie", Ch. Merithot Debutante.

She was an absolute dream who especially loved the shows! I'd drop the leash and she'd show her little heart out. She didn't have a full white collar, so most of her win photos were taken from the other side. For those of you not in the dog show world, this side (her left) is called their 'show' side, as this is the view the Judge has while standing in the ring.

Ringside Candids From VIDFA Dog Show

Here are the ringside candid shots of our boy Mardi's first time in the ring. This photo captures his personality so perfectly! He's such a happy, confident, outgoing little guy!

And I love this one with my daughter Kathy, who's trained him so beautifully! They make a great team!

VIDFA Dog Show Weekend

This weekend we went to the Vancouver Island Dog Fanciers show with Mardi, and had a wonderful time despite the fact it was a very soggy and rainy two days.

Mardi and Kathy

We thought it would be fun to get him out for some show experience, as our local training classes were cancelled this Spring - the building where we train is being used by Fox Studios for storing props and cars for the TV series "Gracepoint". Mardi went Reserve Winners Dog both days, and had a great time.

Kathy and Adriana did some shopping at the show dog supplies vendor, and we all enjoyed hot fries and poutine from the food truck. It was also nice to meet some other Sheltie exhibitors here on the Island. These are a couple of photos that Adriana took at our grooming tent setup :)  There are also some ringside candid shots of Mardi's first time in the ring that we'll share as soon as the photographer sends them!

Jasper's Agility Adventures

We're so happy to share exciting news about Jasper! His wonderful Mom and Dad, Judy and Randy, have been doing a great job with him in Agility and competed in their first trial last weekend!

They're doing awesome, and the fact that Jasper is the first dog they've ever trained is remarkable!

You can see why his registered name is "Kel-Lani's Jumpin' Jasper"

Here's a video of Jasper with Randy at the trial:

and with Judy at training class:

Congratulations Judy and Randy on your wonderful achievements with Jasper! We're thrilled you're having such fun with him and we can see he's thoroughly enjoying it too. Thanks again for the updates, pictures and videos!

(for those following our blog, Jasper is the puppy we nicknamed "PJ").
