CH Wesley

It's been a while since I updated the blog. The most exciting news is that Wesley finished hs AKC championship at Durham Kennel Club 9/01 and is now CH U-CH U-RO1 Blackthorn Ravenwood Come Fly With Me CGC TDInc. Now we need to get to work on some titles after his name. He also got his cardiac clearance so he is bilateral, CERF, and cardiac normal. He is only 17 months old so we won't be doing hips and elbows until spring.

Peggy Copeland generously shared some pictures she took of Wesley at Durham.

Wesley is also a therapy dog and has been a big hit with the patients and staff at Fauquier Hospital. I am so proud of my, brains, and a wonderful personality.

Happy Birthday, Jamie!!!!!

Jamie celebrates his 11th birthday today. It seems like only yesterday when I was off to the NL to bring him home. He is an incredibly sweet, wonderful, talented boy and I absolutely adore him. Here he is enjoying a nap on the deck this morning.

Wesley URO1

Wesley and I went to some UKC rally trials this weekend and I am pleased to say he earned his URO1 title in 3 trials. He had a few moments of excess exuberance but for a year old puppy I am really pleased with his work. Good boy, Wesley!
