Whitesand Whippets Updates 2006


Merry Christmas

Update 12/30/06:

There hasn't been much to write about this month. Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. The dogs got spoiled by Christmas presents this year. I can't believe it will be 2007 in a day. I hope everyone has a happy and safe New Year. We're hoping to do more dog shows next year and also some more Agility classes for Chase. I've also included Haley and Chase's Christmas picture.



Update 11/18/06:

HAPPY Thanksgiving!! I still can't believe how fast this year is going by. Christmas will be here before we know it. Chase and I have completed our first Agility class and plan to start another one in January. It was a lot of fun, I'm hoping we'll get some practice in this winter.




Update 10/31/06:

Chase's First BirthdayHAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe it's already the end of October.It has been a while since I posted and there's been a lot going on! Chase and Haley decided to dress up for Halloween this year. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. I have a feeling we'll be retiring Haley's costume this year! I'm still looking for a Viking's jersey for her!


It's been a busy last two months, Chase and I are almost done with Agility. We've got a couple more classes left until next year. We've had a lot of fun with it and he really enjoys running around and being with the other dogs. We've set up some weave polls in the backyard and hopefully we'll get a nice day to practice and get it on the website. Chase turned one year old on Sunday, October 29th and on his birthday he got Reserve, Winner's Dog at the Sioux Falls Dog Show. It was very exciting and a lot of fun.

Update 09/08/06:

It's been a busy month. Chase and I went to the Whippet Specialty in St. Croix at the end of August. He definitely needs to gain weight. So we are working on that! I added a new video of Chase running around in the backyard and some new pictures of Chase and Haley. Chase and I start Agility next week and are looking forward to that! We've been getting a lot of exercise lately so getting out of running one night for Agility class makes us both happy!



Update 08/16/06:

I've got a new picture of Chase online. He is 9 1/2 months old. I plan on adding a couple more pictures to the page, but for now that's all I've got time for.


Haley's Birthday Picture

Update 08/14/06:

Happy Birthday to Haley today, she is 6 years old already!!! I can hardly believe that we have had her that long. Time does fly by. I should have some new pictures of Chase on the website later this week.



Update 07/08/06:

I finally got the pictures off of my cell phone and have Odie's section done! I might have a few changes to make to it at a later date, but it is done for now! Chase made it to his and my first dog show at Lake Minnetonka. We also went to Vermillion and placed 1st in our class the first day. I was excited for that. We do not have any shows for almost two months but are getting excited to do it again at the Lake Elmo show. Haley is ornery as usual! She enjoys barking at the neighbor kids from our living room window and attempts to chase rabbits in our back yard.


Update 06/03/06:

I got some new pictures of Chase on his page and also a few more around the website. We are looking forward to our first show next week. It will be fun to see how we do. I'm still trying to get Odie's section done. I've got some cute pictures of him to add!


Haley and ChaseUpdate 05/26/06:

It took more than a couple of weeks, but I do have Haley's page done. I will be adding some pictures as soon as I can get them off my cell phone, it's a pain. Unfortunately due to my stupidity Chase and I did not head to St. Peter this weekend for the dog show. I unknowingly did not register correctly. I am bummed but I did register online for the Waconia show in Minnesota so I already got my confirmation that I am in the show. Chase and I are in another Conformation class, because we need all the practice we can get! Haley and Chase seem to be snuggle buddies lately. It's never hard to get a picture of those to snoozing together.


Update 05/01/06:

I know it's been a while since my last update and Chase has grown. Chase has completed Puppy Kindergarten and an Obedience class and will complete his Conformation class tomorrow night! We are looking forward to our first dog show this month in St. Peter, MN. I also hope to have Haley's page done within a couple weeks!
