Once again I am remiss at keeping the blog up. I really need to try to do better with my news! 

Chanel did have her pups, 2 boys and 1 girl. A blue boy and a tri girl and boy. They are lovely pups and what I was hoping to get from her when she was bred to Belmark Earthshaking. The two boys are now in wonderful homes and getting loads of attention and training. The girl is here with us and we are working and socializing to make her the best puppy ever! She is so smart and it only takes seconds to understand what you want and then she remembers. 
Chanel was an awesome mom for the first five weeks and then she decided that was enough. She would get in and feed and clean but after I coaxed in in with a cookie. Puppies had teeth by then and I think it hurt her too much to continue nursing. She also decided by then to sleep by herself at night and that was ok.

We have named the little girl Amy, Jopavist Maybe Amy. She starts a puppy class on Sat, Nov. 7 and I am looking forward to that. I took her to our rescue meeting Oct. 25 to socialize and she got plenty of that. She was passed around and held and petted and loved. She got to see some goats and chickens but not too close.

Jeep and I went to a Nose Work clinic and had a lot of fun. He really enjoyed all the treats when he scented the right box. You could tell he was really enjoying the day. He is back in Agility Classes with Diane at Ellis Dog Training, we are getting him ready to run a trial in December. By the way Ellis Dog Training in Gonic NH is an awesome place to train. All kinds of classes are offered from Puppy to Competition.

Thats the news from here today, hopefully I can remember to keep up with everything that is going on!

Today is clean the kennel room day. Vacuum and scrub down the crates. Once that job is done will get out the puppy pen and scrub that so we can set up for Chanel's delivery. She will be having the pups in what we call our formal living room. We have a nice couch there so that I can be with her at night when she is getting close. Tried to hear heartbeats today but I don't think that my stethoscope is strong enough. Lots of gurgling noises. Must have been her breakfast digesting!!LOL!Poor Chanel is as round as a barrel, but it does not seem to bother her, still wanting to jump and run. Most of the day she spends with Luke in his patio block pen so that she will not be so active. As soon as her puppy pen is ready she will be spending her days inside with me. So looking forward to this litter, and I just love black pups. 
Once the kennel room is clean and the puppy pen ready to go I will give Luke a good brushing. Hope to show him when he comes back into coat. If not this winter definitely this spring. He is a lovely boy and deserves to be out.

We have bred our lovely blue merle ,Jopavist Latest Fashion, to Belmark Eatrhshaking. This is a nice line bred pedigree and we should have some outstanding pups.Chanel has high drive and once she has finished with her litter she will start agility training. For a foundation she has gone to puppy class, basic obedience and also Rally O novice. She loves to work. 

She is due mid August and once pups have arrived and all is well we will start a list for those interested!

We should have some agility prospects, as Jeep is her uncle and is an awesome worker, her mom is Rosie who has all kinds of drive. Rosie and Jeep are brother and sister. It runs in the family!

I can't believe how long it has been since I have come to my blog. I don't know where the time goes. My Jeep is now 4 years old and ready to compete. We have gone to a couple of trials but he still has some focus issues. But he has improved hugely. Our trainer has lost her facility and now not sure what will happen with our training. I have enjoyed her classes so much and Jeep and I have come so far. We are hopeful that she will find a new building not too very far away. We can work here at home as we have a nice agility area set up but being in a class situation is much better, especially for me. There is still so much to learn.
