time with my husband!

Road Trip to USASA Nationals!

21-25 April
USASA Nationals
We had a great time in Colorado, catching
up with mates and spending time
meeting new people. Venti made the cut
down to 1 of 2 in his class in Futurity and
was 1 of 5 cut in his 6-9 class. Loki placed
4th in Vet Sweeps, enjoying strutting his
stuff for the first time in the AKC Ring.
He also went on to win his Novice Jumpers Preferred Class and a two more first places
and a Q in Standard Preferred and Jumpers Preferred at the all breed trial on Friday.
Strider look great in breed on Friday, special thanks Megan Hof for a fantastic grooming job.
Will definitely be booking your services
in the future!

Photos of the boys in Wyoming plus
@ Nationals still to come.

Have an agility trial or two entered and perhaps some conformation. Main plan is to spend some time with my husband and dogs this month!

Sounds like Julie & Bella, IvoryIsle's Surely American (Strider X Minnie) will be strutting
their stuff out in the agility ring later this
month. Stay tuned to hear great things
about this awesome team!
You go girls, we couldn't be more proud!

Mission Circuit LA
(Memorial Day Weekend)

Venti had his firs big weekend away from the house on his own. He did performed like a pro and picked up a Best of Breed Puppy as
well as winning the 6-9 Puppy Class.
It was a great weekend catching up with

We are looking forward to
heading down again sometime later in the year.

6 - 12 November
ASCA Nationals - This year we only had a short time at Nationals as I had to be home early. So we planned the pre-shows and staying until Altered BOB! We couldn't be more thrilled with the results. At the first Pre-Show Strider made it all the way down to the final cut of 5 premiers... it was a great night but a little disappointing.
on the other hand rocked it out picking up his first Premier for Nationals.
Second Pre-show was a bust for both my
boys (it's a dog show *grin*).
Luckily they made it up with both Loki and Strider picking up a Premier at the Utah Pre-Show. It was a great weekend.
Loki went on to pick up a Premier under Kris Churchill at Nationals. He did a great job strutting his stuff. Loki is such a ham and a very special part of IvoryIsle. He brings a joy here that
only he can manage.
So we had quite a successful Nationals catching up with old friends and making new ones. I hope everyone had a good Nationals.

15 November - Bella and Julie get their first leg in Open Standard with a third place too boot at the Nor Cal Golden Retriever Trial!
