We supported the entry of CDs at the Collie Club of Colorado's All Breed Obedience and Rally Trial (Friday, June 3, 2011).

Highest Scoring Canaan Dog in Regular Classes - and new Companion Dog title: Risa Baumrind's Mazel Tov Erv Shel Shoshnim RA, CD, CDCA-HCX

Congrats also to Donna Davison & Caleb who earned a 3rd place/1st leg on his Rally Advanced title.

Genny Landis' littermates Ricky (1st leg) and Chrissie (2nd leg) also earned Rally Novice legs.

Della, Taavi and Yomi were also entered in the trial - unfortunately I had to go pick up folks at the hotel (judges who had come to our judges education seminars and wanted to watch the breed judging) before I got to see them in the ring and so do not have full results.
