Just an exciting announcement - okay maybe just for me and the involved parties but
... drum roll please ...
Plans for Towhee to become a grandma have been approved
Specifically to a boy who has just begun trialing (he was being held back while waiting for maturity). Titan x Towhee 2013.
The boy is fairly local (NJ) and he shares many of his mama Towhee's traits with drive, energy and an exciting dogality. He, like many of Towhee's kids, is on the lower side of the standard but agile and built for performance as well as just being good looking. As mentioned he is an active and driven boy.
The girlie is more laid back and at the higher end of the standard - with a novice handler she is showing well in both UKC conformation and AKC obedience, quickly earning both her CD and CDX and now learning/being proofed in Utility. A quick learner with a willingness to please, she is also a lovable & loving girl and even loves & lives with chickens!.
This is just exciting to me -- oh, the sire to be littermates are excelling in dog sports - HITs, dock diving, some hunt tests and tracking, one of whom is already accumulating OTCh points so yeah, I think its' exciting
Requested by the girlie's owner, approved by Mike & Barb after the genetics were reviewed and approved by the sire's owner. Still only in the planning stages but Woot Woot
