Some achievements of Club members and their dogs (only a selection, we are an active group!)
From Deb Bain: Springer Spaniel Tryx completed her Open Jumpers and Open Standard agility titles at the Wine Country trials; with these titles she has earned her VCD2 title and is now Ch. PrideN' Joy's Gamblin' Suits Me VCD2, RE, CGC. Springer puppy Dealer also had a great weekend at Wine Country, earning 4 points towards his conformation Championship.
From Bruce and Audrey Coleman, an "Old Gold" story: Arrow (Tarat's Aim For The Stars UD, SH, RAE, WCX, CGC, Can CDX, WCI) will be 12 years old in October and Rocket (Ambertrail Rocket's Red Glare **, SH, CD, WCX, OD, CGC, Can WCI) will turn 11 that same month. Age did not stop them from going out and retrieving birds at a WC (Working Certificate) test run by the Golden Retriever Club of Central New York. Rocket was so excited that she started to retrieve the 2nd bird with the 1st bird still in her mouth. This was a trick she tried once while running a Master test. And Arrow broke when the judge said “dog” instead of waiting to be sent. We hope to run next year’s test with our two senior citizens.
From Chris O'Brien: Jazz completed his CPE CL2-H title with placements on 9/15/12 at Boom Towne.
From Joan Shaw: Min Pin Victor finished his CDX in fine style at Western Lakes Training Club trial on Sept 8th by taking a second and a third place in Open A. He was the smallest dog in the class and the only Open A dog to qualify in both morning and afternoon trials. He also was at WEine Country and qualified in three straight trials for his lure coursing ability title. He is now-- UKC CH/ AKC GRCH Goldmedal Victor's Leroy CDX BN RA CA CGC - on to Utility!
Susan Morse, with the help of Mallorie Morse, has been achieving all sorts of wins in Agility with her Malinois Kiss and Cane. For example, at the Susquenango trials in August, Kiss & Mallorie had an awesome weekend with three back to back double Q’s for their 17th, 18th and 19th Double Q’s along with 43 points, giving Kiss a total of 582 points and 19 double Q’s. And that's in spite of Kiss having chronic bronchitis and emergency surgery to remove 2 teeth earlier in the summer.
