BHSS and puppies!

I'm sure a lot of you know already but Dustin won the BHSS sheepdog trial!  If you were there you know how exciting it was.  If not, let me tell you, it was awesome!!  He and Kat worked so well as a team.  Dustin read his stock well and let Kat do her thing.  They got faster and smoother every round.  He was 6th in the first round, 5th in the semi's and 1st in the finals!  There is a great write up about it on under "results".  Will try to get a few more pictures added soon as well.

Now for puppy update.  Jess had 7 puppies on February 10th.  6 females and 1 male.  There are even a couple of tri's in there.  Yay!  I can't help it, I love a dog with some tri.  I'm sure it's because of Zac.  She had them quick and fairly easy.  She's being a great mom as well.  Thinks she wants to go back to work already though. :-)  I'm putting pics up fairly regular on facebook.

Until next time, enjoy the warm days and keep praying for moisture!

Quick update

To much to write about and to little time today so will just do a quick update and hopefully follow up later next week.

Jess is bred.  Yay!  We're expecting puppies in about a week and a half.  She's getting pretty roley poley.  We bred her to Jamie Spring's Cort.  It should be a really nice cross.  This is Jess' first litter so I'm excited and nervous at the same time.  I think the world of that little dog!

Tomorrow is the Black Hills Stock Show dog trial.  I look forward to it every year.  There's a lot of pressure with it being a big, local trial that so many people go to watch.  I'm trying to just enjoy working my dogs and let everything else take care of itself. 

This will be Dustin and Kat's last time competing up there and I know what that feels like having retired Zac not to many years ago.  Your first dog retired is pretty tough.  I'm praying he just enjoys every minute with her out there and appreciates everything she gives him.

Wrestling season is in full swing and we have put many miles on going to tourney's every weekend.  I love it though!  I'm definetly a "cheerleader mom".  I LOVE watching my kids do their thing.

Will be back soon with a follow up from the stock show!  Until later, please pray for moisture!!!
