August 23-24, 2014: Dean went to Harriman, TN for our 2015 Skyhoundz Classic and Discdogathon World Qualifier -- he took the majority of the dogs with him to play so I could concentrate on the new arrival of Remedy's puppies -- so far all are gaining weight and settling into a routine.
Our little Pomeranian, Raz, earned his first World Invite for MicroDog FREESTYLE for 2015. Wowza! What an amazing little pommie. Limit and Siri had some nice placements in both the Classic Qualifier and the Discdogathon. New daddy, Player, got TWO World Invites for 2015 in TimeTrial (beating Siri by .04s!!) and in Bullseye.

Dean made the top 10 cut with Tease for D/A, while Mark Muir (of Georgia Irish Disc Dogs) made the top ten with our sisters, Siri and Limit. They both put in a great effort amongst a pretty tough group of competition, and Mark and Siri ended up 4th overall in D/A. I'm so proud of all of them!

July 19-20, 2014: Dean and his friend Steve Mize, of K9 Sports Konnection, held their 2nd Annual "Catch For a Cure" Discdogathon and Xtreme Distance event this eekend in Jefferson, GA. It was rainy, cold, windy....but we are so happy with the turnout and everyone had fun with their dogs. Thank you to everyone who helped judge and make the event run smoothly.
The "sistah's", Limit and Siri, were on FIRE! Little Bitty Siri took 1st place in Time Trial and in Pairs Distance and Accuracy (paired with Mark Muir of Georgia Irish Disc Dogs, thanks Mark!) which means she gets two invites to the 2014 Skyhoundz World Finals. What a good girl! Not to be outdone by her sister, Limit and Dean took 1st place in Freestyle (WOAH!!!), which means they also get to play in Chattanooga in September.
However, the real show stopper was our little rescue Pomeranian, Raz, as he and Dean punched their first ever ticket for Men's Microdog Xtreme Distance with a catch of ~ 37'! We are so proud of Raz, who will be a year old next week. He has so much heart, drive, and love for playing with us. We are so lucky to have this blue devil.
July 18, 2014: WOOHOOOOOO! Remedy has been confirmed pregnant by our reproduction vet, Dr. Rebecca Kestle, at Cliffwood Animal Hospital. We have scheduled her x-ray for August 20 to confirm the exact amount of puppies, but she counted approximately 4 (+/-).

July 13, 2014: Jenga! and I went to Perry, GA for 2 days of agility. No Q's for us, but we had some great teamwork and any mistakes were handler disconnect areas. She enjoyed the one on one time and swimming every day. Also....HAPPY BIRTHDAY JENGA!!!!!!! I scheduled Remedy's ultrasound for 7/18 -- fingers crossed!!!
July 6, 2014: We had a nice quiet weekend at home.....rare for us!!!!! With the cooler temps, I was able to bring the sheep out and let some of the girls work. I've added videos to Siri's page and to Limit's page.

What an awesome and supportive club they are with a very well run event. Tease also took 3rd in Spot Landing and 3rd in Bullseye. Siri (picture on left) made the cut on Saturday for the top 10 dogs in the D/A qualifier and was sitting in 1st place, but in the second round the wind took a few of her throws.
