Tails Up!

Tails Up was a blast this past weekend! We had some beautiful weather, though it did get a bit warm on Sunday. We are still getting used to being outside again, so there were a couple of sunburns and very white legs making a reappearance for 2012. The crew down in Chesapeake, Virginia are always great fun, we were done early on Saturday so we got to take part in an epic Yappy Hour. It was the best one yet! Tons of food and tasty beverages. Sam even brought a chocolate fountain! We are never short on decadent treats for sure.

Judge Chris Nelson brought some fun courses and his usual charm. Perhaps it was that that inspired the ladies of PZ to do so well! There were some big accomplishments and a lot of big ribbons being handed out. Big congrats go out to:

Paula Goss and Trae: Versatility Medal-4!!

Sam Lietz and Schatzi: Versatility NATCH-3!!

Nicole Bailey and Jinn: Novice Triple Superior!!

Priscilla Warnock and Robey earned their very first title, Novice Tunnelers!!

It was a wonderful weekend, we always look forward to seeing the Tails Up group and spending the weekend with such a fun, welcoming crowd. It is also fantastic that Tails Up is working so hard to bring EGC to the East Coast. It is much appreciated! We look forward to coming down again in November.

All the girls can't resist Chris

Even Schatzi had to try and get in a smooch...

Big achievements at All About Animals!

The weather was perfect for agility, chilly, overcast and the dogs were LOVING it! The trial was small, but the successes were huge. Janet Ooms brought some fun and challenging courses and PZ dogs did not disappoint. Way to go teams!

Tom Moloney-Harmon and Piper - NATCH-13/Versatility NATCH-13!!

Leanne Lohmeyer and Cody - NATCH-S-2!!

And congrats to PZ friend Cathie Cage and Clayton for a drop dead gorgeous Jumpers run that earned them their Medal /Versatility Medal!!

She isn't ready to run with those big guns yet, but Jinn Bailey finished her Superior Novice Regular and Superior Novice Jumpers titles on Saturday and blew her Mom away by nailing all her Open runs the following day when she moved up!! Good job baby Jinn.

Another baby dog wowing the crowd was Suz Sullivan's Phoenix. He is looking AMAZING running with Debi and obviously enjoying every second of it! He brought home some pretty Q ribbons this weekend.
