Well what a year 2014 has been...
I know its been a while since my last blog post, seems most updates are via facebook these days... Plenty has happened since my last blog... Coco gained her Australian Agility Champion Title in August 2013, Rumour had a litter of Puppies with Detail in Feb 2014 the first Dunwurkn/Dunwurkn Litter. I was chosen as Team Manager for Team Australia representing ADAA at teh IFCS World Championships in the Netherlands in May 2014... and what an event it was, Team Australia done well with our borrowed dogs, was great to be able to attend such a great event watching top class world competitors battle it out. I made the decision to go a week early and visit Germany and a 3 day Canine Disc Event, had a great time and got to meet some aweosome European Disc Teams, Many Thanks to Julia Zimmerman for making it possible and giving me somewhere to stay for a few days...
Some big news was i also visited Shepherds Own Kennels on my way from Germany to Netherlands, where i got to see our new Addition Lark who was just 3 days old... such a precious memory... And yes thats some big news as well, I have teamed up with my good friend Denise at Kaden Working Border Collies to Import not 1 but 2 pups/dogs well they will be dogs by the time they get here, our quarantine restrictions makes it hard to Import, and i have to thank Kirstin & Tom from Shepherds Own for offering to raise Lark & Keeper until they are eligible to fly into Australia... Both these pups are from pure working lines, and i look forward to the adventures they will take us in the future.
Some other news is GT gained her Australian Agility Championship Title in August, she has been handled by a friend who also owns her daughter Spree the past 18months or so, and she only needed 1 Agility Card for this title, but i made the decision to continue to let Carl handle her to get that last card. was a great moment for all of us...
There has been plenty of Dunwurkn offspring out there having fun gaining plenty of titles and accomplishments too many to mention here, but its been a great year for the Dunwurkn Kids, and we look forward to many great years to come with lots more news of titles and wins
Things have been relatively quiet on the puppy front, but after some deliberation i have decided i will Breed Logic & Decoy, when Decoy next comes on heat, which could be any day... should be some crazy puppies in the litter... and i do think i will hopefully get to keep one.
A first for us this year also was being offered a TV Commercial job for GT, It was a funfilled week on XXXX Island shooting for 4 days, we look forward to seeing the commercial televised. We had great feedback from the entire filmcrew, and GT eanred a few nicknames including being dubbed the Audrey Hepburn of the dog world. I'll be sure to post links to the commercial when it is aired.
2015 is looking to be a funfilled year for sure, i hope to embark on our 3 Sheep Journey and am looking to enter a few of the dogs into some 3 Sheep Trials over Easter, before trekking off to Sydney to Collect Lark & Keeper, I also look forward to another Trip out West to Longreach to visit Spring Plains Station and Denise & Steve at Kaden Working Border Collies. And amogst all that also get some Agiltiy & Canine Disc Trials in
Gonna sign off by sharing this pic taken at a Photgraphy Workshop we were invited to, and where Focus was one of the Models, i offered them to do a 7 dog shoot they were all amazed that they could get to take pictures of 7 BC's at once
