12 weeks (ears are going all crazy)
and here is my Jumpers course. I got a Q by the skin of my teeth. Course time was 43 seconds and I ran it in 42.88 seconds, phew....I had to play it close to keep momster on her toes.
So...I now have 2 more Q's needed to earn my MX title. I have 4 QQ (need 20 for my MACH) and 109 MACH points (need 750).
Tempie got to go to the trial with us and oh boy, did she have fun kissing and cuddling with LOTS of new people.
So, I have been working towards my next level of agility titles the MX and MXJ titles (masters level). Mom said that I needed 2 more legs (qualifying scores) before I earned my MXJ (it takes 10 to get the title). Well I got one of those legs on December 29th. So mom thought that I needed one more and could possibly earn my MXJ this coming Saturday. Guess what we got in the mail? My certificate that I earned my MXJ title on December 29th. Momster screwed up her count and we didn't get to celebrate my title or get a picture with the judge. I have pictures with all my judges that I earned a title under. Way to go mom! Mom feels horrible and apologized time and time again and said that she promised to start a spreadsheet to make sure this never ever happens again. I guess I will have to forgive her this time.
Here I am with my MXJ certificate. I am now a master jumper. WHOO HOO! So now you can just call me Sagira, NF, AX, MXJ, TN-N.
My MACH countdown is I have 3 QQ (need 20) and I have 98 MACH points (need 750). Might get a MACH before I retire after all.
10 weeks - mom says she can tell Tempie is growing like a week. Her collar had to be adjusted. She is growing up way too fast.
So now on to the award requirements. First we have to answer 7 questions:
Favorite Number? 13....lucky 13
Favorite non-alcoholic beverage? Water...we love water, it is free and quenches the thirst especially after we get back in from running in the yard
Facebook or Twitter? Facebook (why didn't they list Blogger as an option?) that is my favorite because I get to read about all of you.
Your Passion? Momster wanted to answer this one. She said rescue...helping the dogs that are not as fortunate as we are.
Favorite Pattern? ???? not sure on this one
Favorite Day of the Week? Saturday and Sunday because my peeps are home with us and usually take us to fun places
Favorite Flower? I like to dig up all flowers, does that count? BOL
Now we are supposed to pass this award on to some of our fellow bloggers. The rules say we are supposed to pass it on to 10 other bloggers, but we haven't really kept up with who all has received it. If you would like to accept this award from us, please do!
Here are some of the pictures of Tempie from the photo shoot. Dad is still working on the rest of the pictures of the rest of the litter and will post some of those soon.
This is Lucy (her mommy)
How can you not make me part of your family?

Learning the steps
Exploring with her sister
and yes...we have had people already ask about Tempest in the Teapot....well check back for this photo to come. :)
Here is Bokeh doing his 4 - 20 routine. They get 4 dics and have 20 seconds to show what they can do.
and here is Bokeh doing his toss and fetch round. They have a certain amount of time and have to catch as many as they can. They have bonus zones at the end and get extra points if they catch it with their feet in the air (Bokeh doesn't have a problem with this, he loves jumping).
Tempest got to go with us. Everyone was loving her and borrowing her to play with her. She had a busy day and was crashed by the time we were ready to leave.
This is her first time seeing and playing with a disc
and this is her the next day (3rd session) doing much better already
This is me and Starr saying hi to her for the very first time
and this is Bokeh meeting her for the first time
I can't wait to tell you more about her....
How was this for a 1,000th post? :)
Thank you Frankie and Ernie we love everything!
She even made the boxes, aren't they cute?
Our friends Razzle and Jura gave us a new candy cane stuffie and a bag of Bil-Jac treats (sorry the treats didn't make the photo we ate them all, BOL)
These were our pressies in our bag from the gift exchange at the agility run through.
One of the new doggies at our club brought little stockings for all the dogs. How nice was that? It has a super squeaky ball in it that I am loving.
Starr was so happy to go somewhere with mom and dad and was happy to see our friends from NJ. Savi was amazing out in the field and actually earned her Senior hunting title while we were there. Way to go Savi!
This is Savi giving her mom a big ol kiss after she earned her title

Isn't she beautiful?
This is Savi's mom, Jam. Jam is a super duper super model in NYC. She is the face of Target ads, Frontline box, and more.
Starr was checking out where Savi had the bird and eating the feathers left behind
