Best of Breed Win for Jam!

 An exciting day at the Shawangunk Kennel Club show, where Jam, CH Grayhart's Purple Haze, JH, CD, OA, OAJ, SD, VX, went Best of Breed, owner/breeder/handled over the #1 ranked Weimaraner bitch in the country.  Thank you to judge Carol Esterkin.  I was proud of how well Jam showed in the extreme heat, with temps almost 100 degrees.
 Jam stacked beautifully in the Sporting Group and gaited nicely around the ring.  It was a very competitive group with some of the top dogs in the country shown by professional handlers.

A Different Kind of Double Q!

Yesterday was an exciting one for us as both Trixie and her daughter, Jam, qualified and earned their 2nd Exc A Standard legs at the Schooley's Mountain Kennel Club Agility Trial.  Momma Trixie even earned a 3rd place!  Thanks to our pupparazzi, Kellyann for taking videos of our runs.

Here is Trixie's run:

And here is Jam's run:
I was quite out of breath after running both girls, with only a few minutes in between.  I'll have to get in better shape to keep up with them!  They are so much fun to run and look forward to our next trial in July!

2012 YAI Central Park Challenge

Jam and I had an amazing day, being part of the 12,000 at the YAI 2012 Central Park Challenge! A day of fun and excitement for a truly important cause: raising funds to change people’s lives...those with developmental disabilities. I am humbled to be part of this wonderful organization.
 We joined the 12,000 or so who attended to either run in the 5K or walk the 3K, or cheered everyone on.
 The group home that Jam and I visit for our Delta Therapy Dog visits are part of YAI.
 The walk wound through Central Park on a glorious day!
 We made it to the finish line and there was a band playing in the Bandshell and lots of booths plus fun stuff for kids like face painting and sand art.
 After the run, I took Jam for a walk to some of the famous sights in the park, like the fountain and lake.

 We then me up with a fellow Delta Pet Partner team, Anita and her lovely lab, Deacon, to spend the afternoon chatting and walking through the park.  A great day in the city!
