And not sure if I have posted before, but Carina IS pregnant. Michelle is very excited and here is the first pregnant photo we got of her :)
And, Anita did a WONDERFUL painting of Daisy - she is momma and grandma to many here at Shannon Down and she is retired and living with Anita now. Here is how the painting turned out.

Well, first Hummer went to his new home with Charlie & Pat Smith in Indiana, Sarah that owns Dave was so kind to come to Fairborn, OH where mom was coursing to pick Hummer up and transport him closer to Charlie and Pat who picked him up this morning and love him already! Hopefully some pics to follow soon with his updates.
Now for coursing results...
Saturday - Tinsley got the first leg of her JC which she didn't complete today because the lure operator kept the lure WAY to far out in front of her. Oh well, we'll try again next time. Mom did run her with her mother Raku who was happy to get out for a weekend of traveling and has proven to be FASTER than her mother!!!!! It's going to be SO exciting to race her!
Okay, now for the real results - Cuda won the Open stake of 26 for 5 LCX points, Helen won the FC stake of 6 dogs and went on to win Best of Breed for her first 5 LCX points her first time running as a FC! Anna finished 4th in FC after not running for several weeks, she was happy just to get out and stretch her legs!
Sunday - Rupert placed 2nd in Open for 3 LCX points and Helen won the FC stake again for another 1 point towards her LCX. Anna placed 4th in FC's again. Not to bad - a great weekend for little Helen - we are so proud and excited about this girl!!!
We got word that Derby (Brooks x Kira) completed his RN this weekend - yeah!!!!!!! Avery also picked up her 2nd leg towards her RN and momma Kira picked up her 2nd leg to her RA title as well - all with very high scores!
Also I have some new pictures of Christian that we received in his new home that I will try and post on Tuesday.
Lots of new puppy pictures up on the website of Dido's pups (6 weeks) and Scarlet's pups (4 weeks) We are so happy with these two litters - still no DNA results back for the Dido litter, but hopefully soon!
Will post more on Tuesday when things settle down here a bit ;)
