Santa Baby

In keeping with my tradition of an “adapted for people who are canine obsessive” holiday carol, I offer the following:

Santa Baby (with apologies to the lyricist and anyone else even remotely associated with the original song.)

Santa Baby, put a MACH under the tree for me.
What a super gift that would be,
Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa Baby, wrap an OTCH up with a bow. I know
I would be all aglow,
Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa Honey, A CT would be just great, can’t wait.
Fill your sleigh. Don’t be late,
Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Just a joke ‘bout all of this.
Think of all the great times I would have to miss.
It’s more fun, and yes, that’s true,
Working with my dog for each and every Q.

Santa Baby, there’s not a lot I really need, no greed.
Just have fun with my dogs, indeed.
Santa Baby, so have a Merry Christmas tonight.

Happy Holidays 2010

ODTC Brags

Last weekend was the last agility trial of the year. I am pleased to say that Nori finished her MX and added two more double Q's toward her MACH. Jamie and I had a bobble in each standard class but he did Q all 3 days in Exc B JWW. It was a nice finish to a successful year.

Harry RA

Today at the Catoctin Kennel Club Rally Trial Harry, Ravenwood Quick Thinking RN CGC, earned the third leg for his RA title with a score of 96 and 4th place. I am so proud of Harry. He is as smart as he is adorable.

One of my training clients also showed today. Congratulations to Peggy and Fire (Dobe) for earning their second RA leg.
