2017 Reflections

January 2, 2018

As many of us do we spend the New Year’s holiday looking back and looking forward.

We had a pretty successful year.  Caliwags was our focus and we started 2017 doing some non AKC events and Cali completed her IABCA puppy championships and started her quest toward her AKC Championship.

It didn’t take long to get to that Championship.  She started at the Cherokee Rose winter Cluster in February and finished on December 1st at the Winter Wonderland cluster in Perry, GA.   She finished with 3 majors in limited showing.  Of course none of that would have happened with out her “Team”  McLo, professional handlers Junior McDaniels and Ashley Lowery and their great team (and my friends), and of course talented Junior Handler and Cali’s new co-owner Ellie Kidd and me!




Just for fun this summer we learned some tricks and Cali earned her Trick Dog Novice title too.

Bailey was the working dawg again this year.  She did a bit of Barnhunt, added 11 more runs towards her CAX (4 to go) and she added some more points toward her DCat Fast Cat title.  She did her 1st Scent sport event, passing her NACSW Nosework ORT and then this last weekend of the year she earned her AKC Scentwork Novice Containers and Interior titles.


Other fun things that happened, the momma dog Lindy was awarded the CWCCA Registry of Merit Versatility Certificate and Charlie and Cody earned their Companion Dog Excellent title.

I had lots of fun, I got to go to NYC for the Westminster Kennel Club show with my BFF Leslie, it was a great trip!


In May, I had the great privilege to represent Atlanta Obedience Club and The Georgia Canine Collision as Governor Deal declared May 1st Purebred Dog Day in Georgia.


And of course we had our hearts broken when we lost our little friend Sienna our Brussels Griffon last winter but were happy to welcome our new little friend Sunni to our world.


All in all the year was wonderfully successful and I am proud and happy for the year that was and we are looking forward to 2018!
