March 9, 2009 -- Just an update with some show information from the weekend.
Erica & Diesel won their tough open senior class on Saturday under Darcy Quinlan & then went on to win BJH.
On Sunday they took third in their class under Charles Quinlan. I'll forward you the win picture when I receive.
Erica also showed Kimberly's 6 month old pup and wound up going WD with him for his first points :)
Kimberly is very excited about the possibility of getting a pup from you guys. I hope everything works out.
Her daughters absolutely adore Diesel. Erica is working with both of them. At the end of March her daughter is
going to show Diesel in juniors and she is so excited. Received the attached post card the other day and was
 pleasantly surprised to see Erica & Diesel on it.  Hope all is well with ~ miss you!  Dianne
CONGRATULATIONS ERICA! Thank you for the update Dianne!

Congrats on the great weekend you guys had!  We went to an AKC Obedience Trial over the weekend.
Erica showed in Open A and placed 2nd out of 15 and earned a leg towards her DCX.  Today she had a
beautiful run but the judge dq'd her for a double command.  Better luck next time.  Then we hit the lake
for some fun in the sun!  We were on the lookout for a lake house for you --- check out the Iguana we
we spotted on the shoreline!
Life is tough in Florida!!!!  We'll take the "rustic cabin" on the lake, Dianne!

Diesel has eyes only for Erica!

Erica competed for Most Versatile Junior Handler at the ASCA Nationals.
