New Website and Blog!

My new website has just gone live It's a new spiffy Flash site from bludomain. I'll be keeping the html portal too for dial-up users. Still has some "funnies' to be ironed out but I'm getting there slowly.
Also have a new photo blog on the site. linked from the front splash page

TTCC Trial

It was the Tibetan Terrier Club of Canada's CKC Agility trial at Dreamfields at the weekend.
Power was off on Sunday morning so all the jumpers runs took place outside. Weather was gorgeous! So pleased they ran outside because it meant I could take photos and not have them grainy as hell with a colour cast.
Here they are
I am also trying out a new service at photostockplus. They have some really nice items at a reasonable price. Shipping's a bit steep for small items, but a bargain for the larger stuff. Here's the same trial on photostockplus

I also took a few head shots of Carol's Stoney. He's 11 and has an oral tumour. Such a handsome boy.

Tyra ran in excellent and get 3 Qs. Two JWW and one Std. She would have had another standard Q if I hadn't been so sick with this cold. First run of the day, I couldn't beat her out of a straight tunnel and got a refusal on the chute :-( . We did all the hard part on course too!

Lots of Ribbons!

It's been ages since I updated the blog and lots has happened over the summer.
The biggest news of all is that Tyra got her ATChC in July with a tremendous performance at AARF. She didn't just get the 3 standard Qs needed for her ATChC that weekend but came home with 4!

Then, we drove to New Brunswick in August for the AAC National Championships. Had a great time and did fairly well on all the courses. The icing on the cake for us was reaching the Steeplechase finals!
Latest news is that Tyra did it again and achieved her Bronze award of merit on Friday again at AARF. Obviously her lucky venue!

The new gazebo

Paul bought a gazebo for the deck. He and Catherine assembled it on Saturday. Looked pretty good.

And then came the storm

Oh yes, and the internet has been down at home since yesterday afternoon. Damn the weather.
