Kiss is becoming a real SUPERPUP!!!  Good work, both of you.
Well my boy rocked it!  After a drive of almost 2 hours, my boy managed to get two qualifying runs in Advanced level which means he now has a title in Advanced.  We got scores of 192 and 198. 

We also did 3 runs of Advanced Team with the same team as last time; Rayna and Cash.  All the stars aligned and we had scores of 184, 193 and a perfect score of 200.  Yes, my boy is a Rally superstar!

As I had already paid for another run, they asked if we wanted to move up to Excellant level for that run seeing as we got our Title in Advanced.  I walked the course and realized there were weave poles which Kiss has never done before.  I didn’t know if he’d enough energy left to do one more run but my boy stepped up and was again a superstar.  To my shock and amazement we got first place with an amazing score of 198 (and a very tired pup).

We are going to take a break now and not do any training for two weeks; just playtimes.  Over the winter we’ll start working on Scent Detection again and see if Kiss can get it this time.

Have you had her to vet? How is she doing? Thoughts and prayers for her and your family.
Wow!  I didn't realize so much time has pass since I posted about Kiss's adventures.  A few weeks ago we competed In a CARO Rally trial at the Advanced level for the first time.  We totally missed the jump in the first round and got disqualified and then went on to get a perfect score of 200 in the second round. Woo hoo!!!
We had another trial last weekend and the first round we got disqualified as Kiss decided that the big open room was the perfect spot to have a wild case of the zoomies.  He totally forgot his name and every command he was ever taught.  Opps!  Disqualified, but at least we put a smile on the judge's face. 
Our second run, we got a score of 195 out of 200 but Kiss being the slow poke Mastiff that he is, we were 7 seconds over time which meant that we were disqualified again.  Oops!
Out third run we did as a Team with a 10 year old Shiloh Shepherd Cash and got a perfect score of 200 but again had that pesky 7 seconds over time and got disqualified yet again.  Opps! 

We're going to try one more trial in the morning and see what happens.  We'll be doing 3 runs of Advanced and 3 runs of Advanced Team.  Hopefully we can conquer the 7 second jinx (and not have zoomies hit).  Kiss just needs two qualifying scores in Advanced to get his Title.  Fingers crossed!

I remember Mosby/Luca from Diane's.  He's a great dog and will be a wonderful addition to your family.  No he won't take the place of Bella or a Rocco but he will be his own special dog.  Looking forward to more photos and stories.

I don't know how I missed this.  Daegan only collapsed at the end of a three year never diagnosed illness, so I can't give you any advise.  But, I do want you to know that you Camero are in my thoughts and prayers.
Sasha got a little wobbly part way thru a walk once and couldn't make it home.  By the time my boyfriend walked home and got the car, she was fine and hopped right in.

It could be her heart, put without doing some tests you won't know for sure.  It is something you definitely want to see a vet about.   Please keep us posted.

What a super combination!   You get a great dog and Jessie gets a great family.  I love when things work out like that.  It sure doesn't seem like it's been a year already.
P.S.  You take the best photos to show off a brindle.  Not an easy thing to do.
