Received her Master Obedience Title in Oct / 18

She received two HITs during her obedience trialing time and was a very consistent Qualifier.

Ribbon also received her Senior Hunt Title in June of 2020.

Her Working Certificate Excellent was obtained in 2017.

February 24, 2017 Ribbon entered her first CARO Rally Trial and Q'd with a perfect 200 score in Rally Novice. Sully Q'd his first CARO Rally Advance with a 198 score. Proud of the dogs! We are not sure when we will be attending another CARO event, but hopefully they will be able to finish titles this year.

Sully entered his first CARO Rally Trial (Dec 10 & 11, 2016) and earned his Rally Novice Magna Cum Laude title with a final Q run and a perfect 200 score. Other scores were 197 (oops on my part to blow another 200), 196 and 194. We had to pull Ribbon's entry as she came into season the day before the trial. Sully is officially (all organizations for Titles and Honourifics) OTCh BAltSS HIT Kasomor's New Monster Shoes RE WCX SH RNMCL

We lost Rogan to Leukemia on July 24/2016. We miss him so very much. He was a grand dog and we were so lucky to have had him in our lives. He went quickly and unexpectedly, which was shocking but he was enjoying his life until his last day. He will forever be in our hearts and souls and will live on through our family.

Sully received his Rally Excellent Title at the beginning of April/2016. He also entered a couple Master Hunt Tests and did qualify over some of the series. It was a great experience as Shelly has never handled at a Master Hunt level test before. It was a worthwhile experience and gives us something to look forward to training towards.

Ribbon passed her WCI test in June/2016 We were not expecting to be entering any further tests this year, but she started coming along quickly before our local hunt tests. Although she did not Qualify, she made it through many series and was very close! Hopefully, we will see some qualifying work in the summer of 2017 ! She also passed 2 Rally Excellent classes and we will finish this title some time in the future.
