"Reilly" Makes Champion Number Ten for Am. Can. Ch. Foxfair Excalibur, "Andy"


A Very Happy
Ch. Wyndjammers Hoist the Flag, smiles for his championship picture

About a year ago "Reilly, now Champion Wyndjammers Hoist the Flag, RN, had an accident whilst leaping up for a toy that was caught in a tree. Then surgery. Now fully recovered he went back to the show ring in Conformation to finish his championship. Robin Skinner, his breeder, owner/handler reports he was down briefly but never out and always full of spirit. So, now he shows everyone that he is both beautiful and smart.

This makes Champion number ten for "Andy", who is very proud of his son in northwest. Reilly and all of the Wyndjammer Kees and Robins' husband Ken live happily in Portland, Oregon, the city of roses!

Valentina and Keillor

Well, even dogs can be fickle. It seems that Valentina has abandoned her one true love, Andy, in favor another guy. This is such a long distance relationship that her next litter was planned via "Fed Ex". He is very handsome and to be honest Andy has suffered somewhat at her rejection.

The guy's name is Keillor, otherwise known as Am. Can. Ch. Keeshee's Lock Stock N'Barrel. Keillor has also been known to "play the field". But, since Andy just sired a litter in Canada, also via "Fed Ex" he really doesn't have a leg to stand on. Word has it that the new guy is younger than Andy. I haven't told him that yet. It is still possible that she will change her mind for next time.

Puppies are due May 16th.

Darby Earns Two New Titles!


FOXFAIR EDAN O'ERIN
CGC,TDI



It seems that Darby is going to celebrate St. Patricks Day by adding some new titles to his name. CGC is a basic title that says this dog is a Canine Good Citizen. The dog has to pass a number of tests including sitting and behaving while strange dogs are around, not getting upset when an umbrella opens suddenly, heeling on leash, sitting, staying and coming when called. Ward says that Darby passed with flying colors.

The next title is TDI, Therapy Dogs International. For this test the dog has to show that he/she is obedient in a number of situations and would be suitable to go into a school or hospital or other therapy setting. The dog cannot jump up on people and must be quiet when approached by strangers. So, I will let Ward do the talking for the rest of this blog.

"Since Saturday was Darby's 2nd birthday, and today is St. Patrick's Day, thought it a good time just to let you know that your Irish boy is thriving! Passed his CGC/Therapy Dog International tests with flying colors and I am including a picture that I recently had to take and send off for his therapy badge! He attended his very first obedience match last weekend and did beautifully for his first time out of our school environment. He simply loves every new experience that comes his way - don't think he could possibly ever have a "down" day! Of course with a match, food is allowed in the ring so he was in heaven."


"I have adored every dog I ever owned, but (out of earshot for Gunner!),I must admit that Darby is really extra special. His personality is so exceptional and every moment with him is fun. Perhaps the fact that he does not ever want to leave my side, is part of my great attachment for him!"
