An amazing day :-)


I would like to introduce you to the AKC's newest titled dog, Clancy O'Shay, NAJ! :-) Today Clancy completed his first AKC title in spectacular fashion. He completed a Jumpers With Weaves course rated at 44 seconds and 110 yards long in 26.5 seconds - a first place finish. It was a pretty difficult course and no other dogs in his class even finished. I had tears in my eyes as we finished. He was just amazing. We are now competing at the open level in Jumpers. In the standard agility level, we still are looking for that elusive first qualifying score but have come very close in the past two trials and we have one more shot at it tomorrow. Excuse the photo, I just noticed that Clancy is huh, quite the happy boy. ;-)

And if the day was not complete enough I had a package in the mail today. I wasn't expecting anything and I was quite puzzled when I looked at it. I recognized the return sender's name but I wasn't expecting anything since we were arn't currently trading anything. I opened it up and inside was the most beautiful scissor bob I have ever seen! :-) I could not believe that someone thought to make me a give. I gave Tracy a chart a couple of weeks ago in the spirit of paying it forward. She expressed interest in it and since I really like her blog and her work inspires me, I sent it to her. Never in a hundred years did I expect such a kind give in return. Thank you so much Tracy! I'm quite humbled by your generosity. I had no idea that when I started to blog a year and a half ago that I would become involved with such a kind group of people. I will take a better photo when I'm not so wonky, it's been a long couple of days and I still have one to go but I could not let a day go by without thanking her.

isn't this beautiful! The colors are wonderful and there is the cutest little button on the backside. :-)

Congratulations, Clancy!! Way to go!!

And on an aside, I noticed your artwork on the wall and wanted to ask if this is by Cambier, whose paintings have been made into some really lovely cross stitch charts.
