It seems that I do once yearly posts! I've been on a couple of discussions, but was on dial up internet for three years, so not active on this list so much because the site takes forever on dial up. Anyway now we have a high speed stick so I can surf more.
Since I was last here Raisin has become Can Am DC Can AFTCH Highfeather Raise 'N A Ruckus Can FDX CD Am MH CD! She is the first Canadian Dual Champion in about 60 years and the first ever Can Am Dual Champion! I am really proud of her.
We finished a few Canadian Show champions, but mostly we've been field trialing. We had no litters last year, just travelled to CKC trials and a few AKC trials and hunted. We did manage to get to the ISCA National Field Trial and Ken and I had a really great time.
I also went to Norway early last year and attended two field trials, took a pup over with me and brought one home! She's a pistol, already winning at field trials. Alas, I have no photo of her on my new site yet, but I will...if I ever get to stand still....

Right before Christmas we moved into our new house, and so we're finally feeling more settled. The dogs have a nice big yard and big area of the house, and the farm is beginning to look like home.
We are expecting a litter with any luck this spring, and good timing too since we are working on getting dogs ready for adult stakes, so not much trialing this spring. We are also working on cleaning dogs up for the show ring, and obedience if I get myself going...
Happy New Year everybody!
