next weekend there will be a fun and educational Keeshond event on the East Coast for anyone who has a Kees or is interested in a Kees — click here for more information:  Keeshond Symposium June 13, 2015, Clancy will be performing a dog trick show there!

Since the last time I blogged, Clancy has many more dog tricks up his furry sleeves, we’ve achieved our first leg of our CDX obedience title and our 4th leg of our RAE Rally title.  More importantly, Clancy passed the Advanced Canine Good Citizen test and has earned his CGCA (Community Canine) title and recently accomplished over 50 therapy dog visits which earned him his AKC Therapy Dog (THD) title.   Clancy also became the first Keeshond to compete in the Ultimate Air Dogs “Chase It” swimming races and holds the Keeshond fastest swimmer brag.  

There’s probably more things that I’m forgetting, but I’ve been handicapped with my laptop being broken that has all my pictures, videos and software on it.  It’s also the busy season for both jobs that I work, so I apologize that it’s been the longest gap in between blog posts ever for me.  😦   2015 is half over and I still have the winter theme up on my blog!  Ahhh!

Well, I will do what I can when I can here…  I have trick videos I want to add here (just need to get my laptop up and running again), stories about the #FreeTheKees Keeshond Rescue effort, and what I really have intended to do with my blog from the beginning, writing articles about the experiences I have with my dog, Clancy, to encourage others to make efforts to further enrich the lives of their own dogs.
