Ceci Martinez and her Miniature Poodle, Janie, at the 2016 National Rally Championships.

Ceci Martinez & Janie

May 22, 2016

I was invited to the 2016 Rally National Championships held in Oklahoma and we competed in Advanced. Despite the huge venue, long day and difficult courses, Janie continued to do her best for me. I am so proud of my little 'work in progress', who continues to show her willingness to try inspite of her sensitivities. She is now officially known as Princess Merry Jane RA AX AXJ OF CAX MAD.

Apollo is the PWD pulling the line in the new (2014) edition of the AKC Book of Dog Breeds. Judy was very excited that he was chosen from photos taken at the Northwest Water Trials. It shows him working!

Cody is awarded his Tracking Dog Excellent title, pictured with owner/handler Denise Gormish, the judges and the tracklayer.

Cody, a six year old English Cocker Spaniel, had a year full of new titles. In early 2015 he successfully completed his Tracking Dog Excellent title, as well as Novice Agility Jumpers with Weaves and Rally Novice. Cody is a sweet and talented dog whose tail never stops wagging.
