I'm behind on emails, so if you have contacted me in the last couple of weeks please know I'm not ignoring you. I see all my new emails and have time to respond to maybe one or two a night in the capacity I would like to.
Phone calls are difficult for me due to my schedule. I am most responsive to Facebook messages and text messages (using the number provided on my FB page.)
With quarantine rules, we have been working on the things we can:
Trick Dog Novice: Fionnuala and Moth have earned their TKN. Waiting on processing from AKC. Working on arranging a TKN evaluator for Puck and Fionna.
Trick Dog Intermediate: Working on refining one last behavior with Jason for his TKI. Working on TKI with Fionnuala and Moth.
Rally Novice: Working on RN titles for Fionnuala, Fionna, and Jason! I have to make those signs some day for our videos.
Online Dog Shows: Jason earned EX1, vir. CAC, vir. res. CACIB at an FCI dog show online. It's a fun way to pass the time and have the dogs seen against other Kishu all over the globe. Jason, Fionnuala, Moth, and Puck were additionally entered in a US-based show put on by the Ohio Doberman Club for real points. Pure Dog Talk is also putting on shows for real wins/ribbons.
Trails have opened back up here in Oregon, so it will be back to day-hikes before work soon enough.
Hope everyone is staying safe out there.
Akiyama no Roushya Tenrou go, puppy ID name "Moth" is available for co-ownership in the Pacific Northwest. His DOB was November 27th, 2019 and is nearly 13 weeks old at the writing of this post.
Moth is sesame in color and is out of my 5th litter, Cúchulainn x Reiko. (UKC CH Hakuzan no Sekiroi go Hakuzan Ryousou x Seihoume go Hakushuu Daizan sou.)
Please send me email to firstname.lastname@example.org
My co-ownerships are almost identical to full ownerships except that co-ownerships are dogs I want to retain for my program. Dogs who are sold as co-ownerships must be kept intact and made available to me for two litters at maximum depending on evaluation at maturity and fitness as a breeding prospect. To discover more, please ask me anything.
I took Nami, Fionna, and Jason to the Ridgefield Performance weekend.
