Linda came to Ottawa to pick out her puppy
but leaving Ottawa at the beginning of December proved to be a challenge
we were totally fogged in and all flights cancelled that Sunday evening
when Echo and Linda finally arrived in Sheboygan, WI, he started charming everyone .....
including some Tibetan monks.
Linda is an avid obedience/agility competitor
but had never been in the conformation ring
so Echo's early training was in agility
gosh, those majors are hard to find but they found them
then Linda and Echo attended a George Allston clinic
just weeks later, Echo finished his American Championship at the age of 2 1/2 years
going BB over specials .... under Mel Downing
AmCH MeTshag Little Sir Echo CGC
that's the hard way even for experienced handlers ... way to go, Linda & Echo
and then there is the agility ring ... adding NJ and NAJ to his name
and in May 2002 in one weekend, 9 out of the 10 pts needed for his Canadian CH
(including a Group 3rd)
and he finished off his Canadian CH under Hans Brunotte on 1 Sept 2002 at the Essex County show dedicated to the memory of Jeane Marks.
now Echo can leap into his agility / obedience career
September 2003, he became
Am/Can CH MeTshag Little Sir Echo OA, OAJ, CGC
