Truffle's Second Litter, June 2013

Truffle was bred to Lagsi frá Olafsfjördur who lives in the Netherlands with

This breeding was a surgical implantation of frozen semen.

She had 6 puppies 6/23/2013, 2 girls and 4 boys.

She earned her AKC Rally Novice title in three shows in August and September, 2010, with scores of 96, 99, and 96. The first 96 should have been a 99, but Mom lost 3 points for exiting the ring on the wrong side of the Finish sign.

AKC Rally Excellent Title:

  • Truffle earned her AKC Rally Excellent title with two legs at the Kentuckiana Cluster in March, 2012, and her third leg at Allentown Dog Training Club on May5, 2012. Her scores weren't very good. Part of the reason was not having been to shows since March of 2011, due to having puppies, and not being used to the show environment. Kentuckiana is huge and noisy and was sort of overwhelming to her. She NQ'd the first day, got 180 the second day and 189.5 the third day, so she was adapting. Her third leg was outdoors, and reminded me that I need to practice outdoors more!
