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.
