The Fun of Good News

Good News is really quite fun! This is Kiri, one of the Sparklers, who earned a major on Sunday -- her very first time in the ring!

Owner-handled so great job Team Kiri :)

I love that Kiri was Best of Opposite and her Uncle Tristan (iPup) was Best of Breed! Those kind of days are rare, and awesome :) That finished Tristan's Grand Championship and made him a BMDCA Versatility Dog Excellent. GREAT JOB, Tristan and Alison! That is a very special accomplishment, highlighting both working ability and conformation. We are super proud :)

The show news was extra exciting and then Monday came and we got word that Claire cleared both hips and elbows per OFA -- that is also awesome news. We will repeat at two years because that is the minimum age for "final" reports but to get that news on prelims is really reassuring. 

And then we received the results of Sparkle's recent titers. Run by the UW-Madison lab, Sparkle remains fully protected for both parvo and distemper from a single parvo/distemper vaccination at 11 weeks old. 

Let me say that again -- fully immunized at 4.5 years from ONE vaccine at 11 weeks old.

If I followed the standard protocol for a dog her age, she would have had FOUR additional unnecessary (and ineffective) vaccinations by now. Ponder that, if you would.

This is a photo of Kidd (iPup) and Marti from the weekend -- taken by Alexis Robertson. 

I just love it :)

I hope your Tuesday includes some Good News!

Not much better than evidence of good science! So much better for the dog, and so much more in line with best practice vaccinations in humans. Hooray!
