July 29, 2019 Beau-D is back!
We had a fairy tale weekend at the AKC Regional Qualifier for next years NOC. This was our first time back in the ring since last years NOC, Beau-D’s bicep tendon surgery and a long rehab. My hope was to qualify in all 6 classes. Beau-D did so much more than that! We ended up 2nd qualifier, High in Trial with a 199 1/2+ in UB on Sunday. We also took 2nd in UB on Sat, sandwiched between Petra Ford and Linda Brennan, and a 3rd one day in Open. All total around 50 OTCH points for the weekend. The run off in UB Sunday was against Peggy Bower and her wonderful Flynn (Beau-D/Ginny) and also having a successful weekend was Lisa Mitchell and Rook (Beau-D/Piper) ending up in 8th overall!! Such a great weekend, seeing lots of friends that I haven’t seen in a while and meeting new ones. Both clubs did a great job, with Williamsport going beyond and above with Beautiful Qualifying ribbons, colored pails, and a check!

Very proud of consistent dives on Thursday (we did 3) and today (we did 2). She got her 5 qualifying dives (and her championship!) (the handler still needs work 🙂
Cappi and Dory – Cwags Rally Trial June 30 2019
I’m in complete shock! First time we’ve entered anything!
Jan Niblock, with Finn & Molly have been very busy in June!
Finn finished his Novice FAST title today!
Finn finished ASCA Novice Rally title on Saturday at the Medina SWARM Rally trial!! He was a very good boy! On Sunday, he tried Advanced Rally and earned 2 legs, 1 was a first place Q beating out Molly and the second was a 2nd place Q! I am very proud of how well he did for the first time ever to do Rally off leash!!!
Molly earned her first 2 Advanced Rally legs in ASCA on Saturday, June 15, at the ASCA Medina SWARM Rally trial. Both first places. On Sunday at the same trial, she finished her title in ASCA Rally Advanced. Her last run was a score of 198. Very proud of my little girl.
Yeah Finn!! Today was a good day at the AKC Pinnacle trial. He earned his first Qs in Open Standard and Open JWW both with 2nd places. Now if he would only put some of that speed he has in class in the trial, we would have 1st places 🙂 But I am very proud of my boy today.
Fun day today at the AKC trial at Pinnacle Dog Sports. Finn earned his 2nd Novice Fast leg with a 2nd Place (was beat out of first by 2 points). They did a fun tunnelers game after the trial. Finn loved it. I took Molly because she loves her tunnels and she took first place with a big stuffed toy in the Amatuer 16″ division. She really loved that she was able to run from tunnel to tunnel.
Back tomorrow to see if Finn can get an Open Q. He only made 1 mistake on each course today so he is getting better.
May 19, 2019 Very excited for Amanda Phillips for finishing her UD today in Medina. Her German Shepherd, Sequel can be a challenge but is also a lovely girl! Mandy has been training with me for a while now, and I couldn’t be prouder. Many of you know Mandy from the gorgeous article bags she makes.
May 5 – Cinco de Mayo Scentwork trial at Cleveland All Breed – Jeeter and I had a busy weekend trialing at Scentwork and also barn hunt in Portage County. He was very successful at scentwork earning 2 titles, Novice Buried and Novice Exterior. This completed his Novice Scentwork level. He also earned a leg toward his advanced container and found a rat down at Portage fairground in Cosmic K9’s first trial! A fun, but tiring weekend for both of us.

· Molly and I got a surprise in the mail today. Lori Fausett
Molly & Jan Niblock – 1 year ago today, Molly earned her first AKC Rally Novice A Q and it was outside. Today, 1 year later, Molly finished her Rally Advanced A title all outside and off leash. I am so proud of her working off leash for her first time outside because of all those great smells, it was very, very hard. Way to go Molly and Jan!

Christy and Beau-D – NOC 2018
What a wonderful time we had at the NOC! It is a grueling competition for both human and beast members of the team! We made it to the Top 50, but not the Top 20 (around 25th I think). We had a pretty good morning going clean in all 8 right with scores ranging from -.5 to -8.5.
4 years participation in the AKC NOC; 4 years making the Top 50; 2 years making the Top 20 and all of this with only 1 NQ exercise (last year), that makes 71 times in the ring clean!!! I can not be more pleased with my partner, Mr. Beau-d! He’s officially a veteran and I’m a Senior handler but we hung in there–just got home and time for a NAP!!
I do have to thank everyone who cheered us on up close and from a distance! Thank you to all of those who volunteered their time to make this a wonderful even. Linda McDonald who was in charge of the workers did an awesome job!
Loved seeing Barb Mina and Brodie (who also made it to the Top 50), Oscar and Maska; Renee Machen and Stella (showing in Rally); Jean Spellman and Star (Rally-Beau-D/Stella); Emily Edling and Revel (2nd place in Adv. Rally) and If I forgot someone, I didn’t mean too! Beau-D is already snoring so I’m going to go join him!
Sat. double obedience trial (Siberian Husky Club Trial), 4 Qs, 2 run-offs, winning one and losing to Flash (Beau-D’s sister) both with scores of 199! High in Trial and 2 High Combined, 3-1st places, 1 2nd!!!
Beau-D got to have fun again with Rosie!
Sunday we left for Central Columbus double trial, leaving at 4:30 AM. I was so thrilled to be awarded a perfect 200 from Suzanne Hemminger in Open. Beau-D’s 3rd 200! Open B second trial, 199! 4-1st places, 2 High In Trial, 2 High Combined.
What an awesome journey, Beau-D and I have been having since coming back in to the Obedience ring in March!
Thank you to all of the club members of both clubs for their hard work to put on trials for us!!
On April 20 with Jim Ham judging the Rally title Jeeter earned his 9th leg towards his Master Title with a 191 and Gloria earned a leg towards her Rally Advanced title.
High in Trial (winning a run-off) and High Combine
I get lots of wonderful compliments on Beau-D, on our smoothness and our relationship. I am always s
Feb. 10, 2013 Christine Hirsch and her Boxer, Charlotte earn their first Novice A leg at the Toledo Kennel club show–Way to go!!!! We are very excited about your accomplishment!
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!!
