💚 RED 💚

Any day now, there will be a new arrival at Mansted Paws.......

Plett Agility Club

The weekend of the 22nd of Feb was the date of Plett Agility's first SADAA show 

Mika, Cal and myself set off for Plett on the Friday, we got familiar with the beautiful venue (Kurland) and then spent the evening with our hosts Lyle, Brett, Riley and Kate Clark 😊


Woke up to a glorious day on the Saturday... And the show got underway. Nadine Shortland and myself each judged a full club trial. Followed by a gamblers trial each.

It was a GREAT but tiring day... Between Mika and Cal, we earned 7 firsts (6 qualifications)!!! Very proud 

Royal Canin and Plett Agility had organized wonderful prizes ... And the judges gifts were simply AWESOME, will treasure mine 😊

Thank you to Trish, Conrad and Brett for a most enjoyable weekend.... Hope there are many more !

Another open show :)

This last weekend Mika and I took part in another open show. My Cal had a break as he had been a bit sore.  

I don't want to say too much about the first show, suffice to say I thought the judge was abysmal!!!! Judging is meant to be about integrity, earning respect, putting up challenging but nice to run courses.... Well that's what I thought 

Anyway, Mika got a first in her contact round, 1 bar down and a third in non contact, again a bar down. 

The rest of the show we had a few issues (probably mostly my fault) ... But she was keen and happy :)

January Updates :)

New arrivals ....
On the 20th of January 2014 the RED litter was born. Well done and congrats to Nadine Shortland (and Chakotay) of MACKLAND !  One of these precious little lumps will hopefully be joining my household in a few weeks time....holding thumbs :) 

... And on a more serious note , the SA champs trials have started. Round 1 went fairly ok. I am really hoping that Mika and myself can stay consistent and get through all four rounds with the minimum of fuss. Good luck to all competitors 

Hello 2014!!

I have decided this will be the year of the blog....

I have 2 dogs and a puppy arriving in a few weeks, I should have MORE than enough to write least every other day!! 

My Cal and my Mika enjoying some fun in the sun at the end of year awards :)
