Whist got her JDX title, and Ruby got her AD title at Coffs Harbour trial, and up in Cairns Button won another best in group and Nancy won another best baby in show!!! 🙂
Kiah won a 3rd in Group and then a 2nd in group in Canada – giving her enough points for her Canadian Championship – the first Callicoma to ever get that title!
Liq and I flew to Cairns and stayed with Jan and Button and Nancy. We went to 5 shows up there. Liq needed 3 points to finish his Australian Championship and he got 30! He also won an Open in Group and an Aust Bred in Group. But the most exciting part of the trip was Button won Best in Show at one show and Best in the Working Dog Group at another!!! And baby Nancy won 5 x best baby in group and 2 x best baby in show – what a holiday!
Qld hosted the National Championships for DWD and again Tango got a quali in both HTM advanced and freestyle advanced! So proud of everyone out there doing things with their Callicoma kelpies!
Qld held their state championships for Dances With Dogs and for Agility. Tango got a qualification in Heelwork to Music Advanced and another in Freestyle Advanced. Ruby made the finals in both JDX and AD. Same date – Chilli has her first show and wins best baby puppy in the working dog group 🙂
Midnight and Ruby went in a herding trial (after working sheep for the very first time last week!) Both passed their herding instinct certificate!!!!
