An almost empty house...

Lacey, Chief & Etta left for the south on Tuesday. All are doing wonderful and are adored! My house is near empty, I am sad, but at least we still have Ben/Gandalf to keep us hopping for the next week...

You can see Brees updates on the Woof & Chat blog.

Three left...

Anabelle (was Ann - aka Visions Impossi-Belle To Miss) and Brees (was Thomas - aka Visions What The Game's Been Missing) left for their new homes this weekend. Anabelle adores her new children and is local. Brees made the journey to Maine yesterday and has two new "big brothers", Gimli & Liam.

My dear friend, Carolyn, Beo's breeder, is visiting this weekend from Tennessee. She comes up north once a year and her timing was perfect. She fell in love with Etta (aka Visions Mistaken Identity) and Etta will become a southern belle. We will co-own her and she will debut in the show ring in NC/TN. Her call name is up in the air. Carolyn will also be delivering Chief (aka Visions Mischief Maker at Shady Ridge) and Lacey to Pat in NC.

Gandalf (was Ben - aka Visions Mississippi Mud Pie) will be here another 2 weeks before he heads to Philadelphia.

The house is feeling empty...

ADCH Olivia!

On Saturday, Olivia completed her USDAA Agility Dog Championship!

From Barb Miller's email...

"I debated going to this trial, just two days before we leave for USDAA Nationals but we were so close to finishing and she has been running so well.

Just to add spice to the run, I got lost on the way to the trial, showed up just as they were building the course - then missed the walk-thru while I was walking all of my other dogs! Hey, no pressure...

Olivia ran a perfect Masters Standard course, then topped off the weekend with by running perfectly in every other class! We didn't qualify in Pairs only because my (ahem, AKC World Team member) partner had a off course.
Thanks, Holly, Olivia IS a Dream! :-)"

I wish Team Olivia much success at the USDAA Nationals!!

8wk Puppy Shots

Katrin the Visions Reporter here. Today Miss Julie and I traveled all the way from MA to come and visit with PUPPIES!!! We got lots of video and took some stacked shots of the babies. They are age 8wks 2 days today.

The girls we only got side shots of as it was getting to dark to get decent front shots.

Ann- sticking her tongue out like the cute puppy she is :-)


Brees- (formerly known as Thomas, going home with Terri)
