New Beginnings

Well, I can finally announce that I am changing jobs/careers. I am so thrilled to be moving on from a company I have completely lost faith in to a new exciting opportunity. I will be starting with the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) on November 23rd and couldn't be happier. I love my job as a newspaper sales rep but with recent lay-offs, product changes, I felt I needed to make a change.
2009 is shaping up to be a big year in my life. New house, New job, First litter, first Champion (homebred that I showed ALL myself :). I love our new acreage and the dogs love it too ~ Allie is content to kill anything that comes in the yard, Ice is content to protect the yard from any intruders and the two young girls (Meg & Rayne) are happy just running :)
We are getting excited about some new litter plans for Meg and hope that we can finally have a litter out of this special little girl.
I'm off to Camrose this coming weekend to put my girl up against 17 other aussies!! That's right ~ 17 other aussies entered. Litter sister Breeze will also be there and she is cute as a button. It is going to be extra special to catch up with old friends and people I don't get to see very often.

Starting at the beginning

Its always a thrill to start with a new dog in agility. I may be biased but to me Aussie's are the smartest most forgiving breed of dog to train. Last night was our first agility class (Rayne & I) and I was a little worried she wouldn't have the "jam" to be a fast, love the sport agility dog ~ but boy was I wrong! She instantly loved what we were doing and was pulling on the leash to do more! She is going to take after her great daddy Ice ~ Ice was so easy to train I thought I lucked out with the worlds smartest dog :) BUT it seems it's all in the genetics of the "Caitland" dogs. I'm already excited to go back next week!
