Beau-D (CH Morgen’s Lil’Bit of Skyefire TD CD SH WC CCA)
earns High In Trial at the IX Center Dec. 15, 2012. This was the first time Beau-D was in the Open class.
To earn High in Trial (HIT) a dog and handler must have the highest score in any of the regular obedience classes at a trial. If there is a tie, there will be a run-off between the two dogs–Beau-D had to win a run off to earn this HIT!
August 4th and 5th, Christy and Beau-D compete in the All Star Tournament in York, PA. Beau-D WON the Novice Dog class, beating over thirty dogs and loosing only 5 1/2 points out of 600.
Way to go Beau-D!!

Gizmo and Alyssa July 16, 2010 CD title
On Sunday, July 11th Rylie earned her C-ATCH which is her CPE Championship!!! (CPE is Canine Performance Events.) The course was extremely challenging (e.g. doing the dogwalk twice with tunnels on both ends!) and the weather was hot (90 degrees) and sunny! Many dogs went off course but not Rylie who, in the style of a champion, was steady and true. Congratulations to Rylie and her human, Jan!!!
In December 2009 Diva received the title of Outstanding Dam (OD) from the Golden Retriever Club of America! Diva had one litter of puppies who have earned numberous titles in agility, rally, obedience, conformation and field trials!! Ramona writes ” I am so proud of her puppies and the honor they have made possible for her.”
On Mother’s Day 2010 Gizmo got his Tracking Dog (TD) title!! A TD test is done to see how well a dog can track human scent and find the articles left for them. The dog follows a pre-plooted course that is between 440 and 500 yards in length containing 3-5 turns and is 1/2 to 2 hours old. It is a sport where you have to trust your dog!! His nose tells the way so you can hang on and go with your dog. Marilyn and Gizmo ran his track in 4 minutes!!!
