News, fresh off the Farm
Debby is in Sweden with Krystal for AWC. Supposed to fly under the seat but apparently when you are in the very last row there isn't enough room under the seat for a crate. And she certainly can't fly in the overhead bin.
Somebody flipped a switch on the first day of Fall, and it has cooled off a lot. Outdoor agility is still available at least until early November. Lots of time to practice some exercises on real grass for a while yet. If you need some late evening lighting, please let me know and it will be made ready.
October looks to be a quiet month, so we can get ready for November.
The October CARO trial information is posted, the Premium and on-line entry form are now available. There is a judging change, Lorraine had a family engagement so Brenda Zeng will take the assignment. Read More about the CARO schedule, as well as reports from past trials. 2018 dates are posted with Judge assignments.
The Premium for The Poodle Club of Canada CKC Rally & Obedience trials in November has been released and is now open for entry. Early entries have each day about half full, with weeks to go before close. Closing date is October 23, entries received after reaching the time limit will go on a reserve list if needed.
This is a activity zone for puppies! Lots of toys hanging, things that rattle and make noise, things to tug. I didn't do the whole project, it was a co-operative job. My part was building the frame, drilling all the holes and determining how each item might hang. then Michaela took it home and strung everything to suit her own tastes. Of course the puppies loved it! I love doing these sorts of things too, eMail me and we can discuss your needs.
Health & Lifestyle
Having trouble with fruit flies in the house? It is a common complaint in our area this time of year. Hanging fly strips doesn't help much, they aren't very attractive. But a thimble full of malt vinegar in the cardboard tube adds a scent that a fruit fly can't resist. Soon they are flocking around and getting stuck.
Roxanne is next here on the 23rd of October for canine chiro. More info, including appointment booking. Kathy will be available in October for massage therapy, and I am told she is also trimming toe nails too. Check with Debby on Facebook for appointment info.
Michaela is here nearly every Wednesday from late afternoon to late evening. Some of her students have been achieving their training goals, and there are time slots available for new students who wish to get some of the best instruction in heeling.
We just finished the Poodle Club CKC Rally & Obedience trials in September. Results are posted on canuckdogs, but it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that there were a lot of poodles. Pre-Novice was all Poodles, all day. Pynk got her first 2 Q's in Pre-Novice, setting her up for a great weekend in November.
The August CARO trial is done, and the results and pictures are ready!. Results and reporting.
Neil and Bruiser are pretty happy!
Some poodles are blue,
some poodles are black,
Pynk came in heat,
Bazyl nearly blew his stack!
Pynky & The Brain
Are you pondering what I'm pondering Pynky?
I think so Brain, but I think "Debby and the Giant Apricot" would have made a better story. Narf!
