i'm back, well for a minute.

I know I am taking a blogging break :) but this was too important not to share, K deserves a little hoopla ... OK well maybe a whole lotta hoopla :)



Kaleb is GOLDEN!!!!


He got his last 4 games this weekend for his Gold Award of Merit! (50 Masters Standards, 100 Masters Games) I can't believe we were able to get the 12 Qs we needed in the 2.5 trials he has been in since his Surgery. I know I make fun of him ... well we all do :) but K-man is a one of a kind, and I love him for it.


He is the first Flat-coated Retriever in Canada with this title. He also earned his Expert Silver Jumpers for his 25th Masters Jumpers Q. He is running better than ever, and at 8.5, I couldn't ask for more. Lucky for me he has almost an 80% Q rate ...

This Title is extra special, as this Trial was where I got my first ever Agility Title, with Jane, Gyp also got her Starters Title at this trial and one year later her ATCHC, and now the big guy earns his Gold Award of Merit at the same Trial. I just can't believe we were able to reach this Milestone, wow.

Gyp ran amazing this weekend too - she Qd in Challenge with the Fastest time and also the Fastest qualifying time in one of her Jumpers, and brought home a Snooker Q too.

p.s. Jane is responding well to her meds after another scare last week, and fingers crossed she remains stable. She even play bowed when I got home last night and got Gyp to chase her through the house twice :)

i was wondering if you would blog it.

We all do make fun of kaleb- but really he is a great dog who has the ability to not only make us all laugh, but to do great things.

He certainly is one of a kind!
Congrats!

Servicing your air conditioner frequently will maintain your energy fees down. The better your air conditioning unit is running, the less resources it'll use, thus, saving you moeny on energy bills. It really is also wise to preserve your unit regularly rather than pay big repair charges when it finally breaks down. A service call is significantly cheaper than a replace the unit call.
