Bailey with his perpetual Trophies for 2016
What a fantastic start to the New Year. We hold three perpetual trophies for the course of 2016, Wizz is now Grade 5 and and I have just secured my dream job!
Wizz won the Jay the Jester, Let Me Entertain You Award for being the dog that makes
most people smile and being such a goof ball and Bailey won the Kizzi Kracker Award for the top small grade 7 dog. thank you Jacqui Tarn J Bailey also won the John Jacob Memorial Cup for the dog with the most points for EDTS, thank you Kevin Smith and all
the members. So those three trophies have pride of place on the mantelpiece for 2016 when in December they will pass onto the new winners.
The results for the Small grade 6-7 Mad Spaniels League for 2015 were announced as
1st with 2167 pts Eliza
Doughlittle ran by Charlotte Linton
2nd with 1254 pts Ruby Rascal (AWG) ran by me
3rd with 1018 pts Afterglow Mr President ran by me
Very well done to Charlotte and Rosie and hope we have continued success in our small Crufts teams in 2016
So as if that didn’t make my day I found out this month that I have been successful in my application for a new full time job as Puppy Trainer for the North East Region for Hearing Dogs for the Deaf starting late February. I have had to put
my other duties on hold for a few months whilst I complete my residential training but it is such an exciting prospect that I am very much looking forward to.
Once I have completed my residential training I will of course be still training the assistance
dogs for Dog A.I.D. as this is going very well and also continuing to offer behavioural assessments and modification on a 1 to 1 basis as well as running Cleverpawz Agility Club and competing with my own dogs.
I have now completed all my written work
for my KCAI Accredited Instructors Qualification and just need to send it all off for moderation.
We have competed at a few shows already in January including Crooked Oak UKA show in which we had some fantastic results despite pulling out early due
to a bit of a sore neck (whip lash courtesy of Wizz, must get him some brakes). The roll call of results were:-
Bailey 3rd Champ Agility. Midi
Jet 1st Champ Agility and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd
in the Champ Steeplechase classes. Toy
Bon Bon 2nd Champ Agility and 2nd, 3rd and 4th in the Champ Steeplechase classes. Toy
Barack 1st Senior Gamblers, 1st Senior Agility, 2nd
in Senior Agility, 2nd and two 3rds in Senior Steeplechase classes. Toy
Nell 1st in Senior Gamblers, 2nd in Senior Jumping, one 2nd and two 3rd s in Champ Steeplechase. Maxi
1st Beginners Jumping. Maxi
Had a great day at Wilmslow Premier Show despite leaving after lunch because the snow was threatening to close the 66 and leave us stranded. Three of my little ones getting placed in the Olympia Qualifier
out of 103 dogs, Barack getting 11th, Jet 9th and Bailey 7th. Then to top the day off Wizz won into grade 5 with a cracking agility run completed on 33 seconds.
Not entering many shows over the next couple of months
as I will be away on residential training for my new job, but do have Ribble Premier Show to look forward to.
See you all soon.
Lucy and the gang 🤪
