update on the pupsters

Sometimes we wonder what those puppies are up to in their new homes...
and then we received some photos from Miss Squiggle, now known as Chili.

Doesn't she look just like her big sister, Gracie!

What a cutie.

We also got a gorgeous pic of Elsa (was Purple ribbon) with her pal, Charlie.
She looks just like me! What a handsome girl she is.

They are about six months old now and certainly good looking examples of an Airedale. We've heard reports that the others are doing well too.

Some even auditioned for the Great Gatsby movie, but Baz ended up going with a Schnauzer puppy as our guys were a bit too big for what he had in mind.
Could have been a path to stardom, but it wasn't to be.

Gracie's first trial

Gracie entered her first obedience trial on Saturday evening.
She did really well and got a qualifying score (and ribbon which she is modeling here).

She got a score of 94 out of 100.
The judge said the dog went really well, but it was Kay's sloppy
handling that lost most of the points - ha!

Two more of these certificates and Gracie will have her Community Companion Dog (CCD) title!

I, ahem, unfortunately bombed out of my class. The Open class is MUCH more difficult than the CCD ring and although I started out really well, I lost concentration after awhile :(

Lucky Gracie was there to bring home a win for Team Airedale.
