One VERY tired Ronja earned her third an final leg towards her Danish obedience championship (DKLPCh.).
We had walked 30 km. the day before the trial and 5 the same day - and she is on top of that pregnant. She was so tired during the entire trial.
Championship in obedience and rally
I had entered Ronja in obedience class three - despite the fact that we hadn't been training since fall last year. We participated with one month of training and one VERY hot girl that was bred the day before. We ended up as number 6, only 7 points from the winner. Can help thinking what would have happen if she only had stayed on the grown for the entire 4 min. during the lay-down (no one other than the judge saw that she sat up for a split second?).
Luke (Binary Sunset) did however repeat last year succes and won his class in Rally. Good job Maiken!!!
Ronja has been bred. Puppies expected november the 1.

2014 have, so fare, been a very quite year. A lot has happen on the personal front and though the dogs haven't been forgot, they have been "put on ice" (training and competition) for the time being.

Proud of my blue girl. She was so good - despite lack of training.

Maiken and Luke (Binary Sunset) won the Danish Championship in rally novice.
Congratulation. You rock!!
Wee! A dream came true today!
Sirius earned the title HYRDPR1 - the novice Border Collie herding trial.
We both made some mistake (me the pen, he the outrun) but we ended up with 66 point and 5th winner.
This is the best official trial result a danish Aussie has ever attchieved in a Border Collie herding trial!!!
Need I say that I am so proud of my big boy!
Luke (Binary Sunset) and Maiken did it again:
First price and second winner in obedience class one.
I had entered Ronja in a rally trial this evening, hoping that we would be able to get the last leg towards her championship.
Ronja did great, but I totally blew her chances - again! Couldn't find my left from right and went the wrong way around :-( When the judge told me that I thought what the heck, lets just walk the line and skip the last exercise - and so we did, ending up with a not very flattering score.
Luke (Binary Sunset) and his owner did a fantastic job at their very first obedience trial.
Congratulations with your first obedience title!
Aslan (Boromir of Gondor) got his first leg towards his rally advance title
- and with a yellow ribbon.
Luke (Binary Sunset) got his third and final leg and rally novice today.
Congratulation with his first title Maiken!
Luke (Binary Sunset) and his owner Maiken got a very nice leg - and a blue ribbon - at their second rally trial in DKK
- and they did must likely also qualified to the Danish Championship in Rally 2013.
Nice job Maiken!
Ronja got her second leg in rally excellent.
She did a super job, but was so focused on looking at me that she didn't really saw the jump = hit it with a paw.
We ended with 97 point and a second place.

Padmé got her last leg in rally advance. She was such a good girl, got distracted for a moment by a 8-10 weeks old pup, but did otherwice very nicely.
Ronja had her debute in obedience class III.
It was however not a success.
We haven't really been training lately due to my mothers illness and death, so I knew it was a matter a of chance. I was also in a bad mood (trialing was always something me and my mother did together) and Ronja is also affected by both the rehoming of her best buddy Lyssa and us moving to a new place (home) only 5 days prior to the trial.
26. - 29. july 2012
Sirius and I went to Wrohm for a 4 days herding trail on cattle.
Sirius was truly afraid of the cows in the beginning of the trial (due to very bad experience from last trail), but with support he regained most of his former courage and got some really nice runs - even though the cows were not the easiest stock (dairy cows, which does not have the same "group-instinct" as meat cows and thereof may be difficult to keep together in one group).
Thank you Juliane for a wonderful and well organized trial and to judge Tanya Wheeler and Wayne Kirby.
Oh yes ... I almost forgot some of the most important event at the trial:
Sirius got his last legs in advanced cattle and is therefore now
This is only the third WTCh. in Denmark and his third performance championship!

Padmé and my mother participated in their very first freestyle competition. The attchived a 4th place, 2 Q points and was awarded "Best teamwork".
The first obedience trail of the year and our very first in-door obedience trail.
All of the dogs in the international class was influenced by the crowed placed, strange - and very slippery - floor, the noises etc. and not one of them did their best. In was so obviously that Sirius did not like it all, so I am pretty pleased though he only got a third prize (partly due to my mistake - and downed him outside the square!!!).

Dungeon Master was shown at Cruft today - and what can I say other than ... Yippii!!!

Not a happy day :o(
Last week I had Emmy x-rayed as I thought she showed some signs of pregnancy after all. And quite right, there were one single pup.
This sunday morning the temp. drop, but though we visited the vet several times the birth never really started.
Early this morning the vet finaly agreed that C-section was nessecary and Emmy "delivered" on beatiful - but very dead blue merle boy :o(
I am totally heartbroken, but that is nothing compaired to Emmy who keps searching and crying for her lost pup :o(
