We had a lot of fun at the Peninsula Dog Fanciers Club show in Bremerton this weekend.

Show picture with the judge and their ribbons should be in the mail in 7-10 days, but until then, this is Koji's puppy picture for now. Isn't he a cutie pie? smile

Koji was moved up to the Excellent A class after earning his Rally Advanced (RA) title with a 1st placement on Saturday. He did very well and qualified for his first leg in Excellent today with a score of 95 and 1st placement. Maluko also qualified in the same class and earned her Rally Excellent (RE) title with a 4th placement.

The courses this weekend were very challenging and the judges were demanding, but both kids did well.

Maluko started learning Rally since Aug 2011. We entered our first ever trial in Nov 2011 and she had qualified every trails we entered. I am very proud of her that in about 4 months of trialing, she got her Rally Novice (RN), Rally Advanced (RA) and Rally Excellent (RE) title.

Koji started Rally classes in November 2011 and went to his first trial in mid Jan 2012. So far, he has got his Rally Novice and Rally Advanced title. He not only qualified for every trails we entered so far, but usually gets placements. I have high hopes that he will get his Rally Excellent title soon and maybe breaking Maluko's record.

Great weekend for all the working Shibas! Congrats to Lindsay, Beebe and Farrah (Koji's aunt) for their achievement in Flyball. Farrah got her FD and FDX with her debut tournament. Shout out to Rebekah & Colada for their new Rally Novice (RN) title and a perfect score of 100!

Both Shibas qualified again this pass weekend. Koji earned 2 more legs in Excellent and got his Rally Excellent (RE) title on Sunday. He also got a 3rd placement on Saturday.

Maluko earned 2 legs toward her Rally Advanced Excellent (RAE) title and double Q'd in both Advanced and Excellent class both days.

I am very proud of both Shibas. Maluko went from RN, RA to RE in about 4 months while my goofy boy Koji completed the same journey in 2 months!
