Tracking workshop and March updates

As March is wrapping up, there are a few recent bits of news.  For one, I’ve been updating the blog even though this site isn’t even public yet.  The reason is because I’m still waiting on the official return of our kennel name registration with FCI.  The application was finally sent in at the beginning ..

Morrow, Foundations in Agility Session 10

Yesterday marked the 10th weekly session of foundation work in agility with Morrow.  This is our first serious venture into agility and so we are taking lots of time to build proper foundations, since I am learning the handling as well (caveat: I have horrible coordination..).  It looks so easy on other people’s videos!!  Hopefully ..

Yesterday Morrow made her 2016 show-ring debut at the UKC shows in Claremont, California, hosted by the Alaskan Klee Kai Association of America.  She did a lot better than in 2015 since she’s matured a bit more and looks much less awkward. ..   Her results are as follows, both owner-trained and handled:   Łojma ..

Int. Ch. Jolly z Molu es, May 15, 2000 – January 31, 2016

Today we sadly bid Jolly good-bye for the last time.  She was the grand-dam to both Ghost and Morrow and the progenitor to countless other dogs who carry her on in their lineage.  She was sweet, temperamental, one of the most beautiful and winningest Czechoslovakian Vlcak in the history of the breed. She was not .. [more]
