As the year draws to a close, I have much to be thankful for.
Once again I have to thank everyone that is part of my life.
Between my family, dogs, and friends, I am blessed to have so much.
This year has been a busy one, (when am I not busy!)
So thank you everyone for another Wonderful Year, here is to 2012 and to the hope that 2013 will be just as fun and filled with joy!

Stuart, a young 7 month old puppy was BOB. Beautiful young boy and when he grows up is going to be quite a fixture in the ring I am sure! His Breeder should be very very proud of him!

Libby and Leslie had a good day!
This is what Leslie had to say:
Please make room for a few more letters after Libby's name: TIAD. This is the Intermediate Standard title in Teacup. We had a very nice run with a first place today under judge Rosemary Evans at Dandy Dog Training Center in Carlisle, PA. We had lots of fun with our human and dog friends at this last agility trial for 2012, and also picked up 1 more leg in Superior games. Lib and I have finished out this competition year with 8 new agility and rally titles. It's been a great season and I'm looking forward to yet more ribbons on the wall in 2013!
Libby, with her accomplishments so far, is now:

News From the Homefront!
Libby (CH Temora Maid in America) and her owner Leslie had some exciting stuff happen to them on Friday!
I'm thrilled to report that on Friday, November 2, Libby and I took first place with a score of 206 )out of a possible 210) at Bella Vista's November APDT rally obedience trial under judge Joan Klingler. This was our Level 2 title, so add yet another set of initials behind her name: RL2. Ms Klingler has seen Libby progress from barely knowing what "Sit" meant to this first off-leash title and was just as happy to hand us those ribbons as we were to receive them. This is what I so love about APDT--camaraderie and fellowship, everyone cheering each other on. I'm hoping for a few more agility titles yet in 2012, so stay tuned!


11-01-2012
Mac's (GCH CH Temora Ri Diercc) ownership has been passed over to esteemed AKC Judge Zane Smith.
He will be campaigning Mac with Kellie Dahlberg as the Handler.
I am thrilled and excited to have Zane take on Mac and I am honored and humbled by all of this.
This is a Once in a Lifetime opportunity, and I will eagerly watch to see what happens with Mac.
Thank You Zane for giving me, my breeding program and my dog, Mac, this chance of a lifetime!

I was searching through the AKC website when I found this page and to my surprise, the Waukesha Kennel Club website, which I created and work on is featured! I have to say, I am quite proud of this!

News from the Homefront and Beyond!
Tata (GCH CH Temora Taint She Sweet) and I were at the Springfield IL shows for Friday & Saturday.
Tata was BOS on Friday
She was BOB on Saturday under Ed Bivin!
This was her last show as she is due to come into season in November and if she does, she will be bred. With Tata, for the little bit she has been out there, it has been a wonderful ride full of highlights! She has had a wonderful career and I am very proud of her and what she has accomplished in the show ring.
Across the pond, Derby (Temora's Photo Finish) was BOB and won the Terrier Group at an open show with Sheila Stoddart handling her!
This was a critique she had from a previous show where she won the Cc and BOB:

Stoddart & Seaton's Temora's Photo Finish, excellent bitch of correct type & balance, b/t, good head, neck & shoulders, correct coat, moved & showed well to win CC & BOB - Judge Ernie Darby

Roya (Millvalley Touch of Class) is here now waiting for her puppies. She is due to have them at the end of this week.
I know her other Mom & Dad are excited and it is so wonderful to have them involved in the whole process.


10-17-2012
A New Company Called Fast Ads for Less asked to use Mac for a Facebook Ad, who am I to say no to that! :)


Updated photos of Keira, she is starting to smile and is getting cuter and cuter by the day!



10-3-2012 to 10-7-2012
This was a HUGE weekend, not only in agility, but conformation.
It was MONTGOMERY WEEKEND!!
Montgomery is the largest all-terrier show in the USA. On Sunday, there were close to 2000 terriers of all kinds entered at this show. Aussies averaged around 21 for the weekend, which is pretty good!.
Also there is agility, just for terriers, Leslie and Libby (CH Temora Maid in America) were there again and here is what Leslie had to say:
A year has made a huge difference in Libby's agility life. This year, we were at Terrier Week for the first 2 days. On Day 1, she earned her first leg in Novice FAST with a first place, and in Jumpers, her first leg with a very nice 3rd place. She did her weaves and is working away from me with much more confidence! On Day 2, she had no Qs in any of her 3 agility runs, but we did qualify in rally obedience for our RA, so give her another set of initials after her name! Although we had no Qs today, she did a lot of things very well. It's all a learning experience, and a successful run is not measured simply by whether or not you qualify.
Mac (CH Temora Ri Diercc) was also showing this weekend in conformation.
He placed on Thursday under Zane Smith - SEL Dog
On Saturday he WON THE BREED under Kerry Lee from Australia!
With this win, he has finished his Grand Championship!
He is now: GCH CH Temora Ri Deircc
Yeah Mac!
Considering all, including the fact the is not shown much, I am very very happy with the results.


9-21-2012 to 9-22-2012
News from the Homefront and Across the Pond!!
First, Libby (CH Temora Maid in America) who is owned by Leslie Hoy, had this going on:
Tonight at our fall Teacup agility trial at Bella Vista Training Center, Libby Q'd in all 3 runs (2 standard, 1 game). We earned our Games 3 title with a very nice second place. What thrilled me even more was our 2 Qs in Intermediate Standard. This was her first time at this level and she now has to do weaves. Do them she did, and very nicely, too Both her Qs in Standard were 1st place finishes. We have no more Teacup trials until December but I'm sure we will finish the year with at least 1 more new title.
Across the pond at the show in Great Britain,
Derby (Temora's Photo Finish) was awarded her first CC at Driffield today. She won the BCC and BOB!
Way to go Derby and Sheila!!


9-12-2012
News from the Homefront!
Just found out that Bull (CH Temora Bully For You) has his 5th Champion offspring!
With this, and if there is enough points, he will get his ROM EX. Bull is my hero and my best friend in the canine world. He will be 9 years old this coming January. Very proud of all that he is, and all that he has done.

Also on Saturday, Tata (GCH CH Temora Taint She Sweet) and I were at the Cudahy Dog show in South Milwaukee WI.

As far as he was concerned, MOM and TATA were behind him, and that is where he wanted to be!

Huge Congrats to Jerry!
I was in West Bend WI with Tata on Sunday. She has been with Leonardo showing and is home for the summer. OMG, she is like a locomotive going around the ring. I can not keep up with her! I am going to have to learn to move faster I think. As it was, she was BOS to one other Special. Have to get some practice with her before we go back in the ring again!

Here are some photos of Dani swimming as we fill up the Doggie pool. I am sure she wishes it was bigger!



06-24-2012
Libby (CH ALTCH Temora Maid in America) earned her second RA leg under judge Katie Maess at Dauphin Dog Training Club in Hershey, PA. We were a bit out of practice owing to my surgeries and injury this spring, but we earned a respectable score of 86. Afterwards, she celebrated her Q with a yummy dehydrated duck foot (yuck), which she happily crunched up in record time!
Congratulations Leslie & Libby!

Well, The 72nd National Specialty is now History!
It was a great week, everything went without a hitch and I can only hope that everyone had a great time!
We raised a LOT of money during the raffle so it was worth taking all the millions of stuffed animals to St Louis. Mainly on top of my car, I purchased a soft carrier to get them down there.
I think the people that helped put the baskets together were amazed at how much we had to work with, but ALL the baskets went over well and people were happy with what we had to offer. It was fun seeing all these stuffed animals all over the show grounds and the hotel. We know where they came from!! :)

Some wedding photos!


5-9-2012
Well, my daughter Julie get's married this weekend.
Hard to believe!!
Right after that, we have the National Specialty show that runs from May 29th to June 4th.
We have close to 80 people attending!
My goal was to have 100 Australian Terriers entered for the show.
It does not close until 5-16-12, so hopefully I will know by next Thursday whether I met my goal!
It will be fun no matter what as we have plenty of things planned.
No shows this month, too much to do.
Hope to see Everyone at the National!


04-22-2012 to 04-23-2012
On Sunday and Monday I was in Richmond VA with Kiara (Temora Where Magic Lives). We were there to shoot a video for Take The Lead, an organization that helped pay for a transplant that I needed in 2005.
You can read about the transplant and Take The Lead here: "Islet Cell Transplant"
Miguel Betancourt, a very famous photographer in the Dog World is donating his time and talent to produce this video. I have always been in awe of his talent. After spending 1 1/2 days with him near where he lives, I can honestly say this is a most creative, honest and an all around nice person. He does have one flaw however, he does not eat!! He spends all his time photographing the food!! Talk about dedication!! :)
The photos below were taken by Miguel with his Iphone.
These are on his FB page "Infocus by Miguel".
They are his 'Behind The Scenes Photos'

Hi Everyone,
I have had some inquiries as to why my website is so quiet as of late.
Well, my daughter Julie is getting married on May 12th. Right after that is the National Specialty, which many of you know, I am chairing.
So for the moment, my plate is, as they say 'FULL.'
I have one show at the end of April with Mac, but other than that, in the month of May, I will not be showing much, if at all.
On the other hand, Viki (CH Temora Maid of Islay) has been bred to Bull (CH Temora Bully For You).
Her puppies, (if she is pregnant and although it is too early too tell, I am sure she is), will be born the first week of June. (Yes, after the National).
Bull sired a litter last year and two puppies out of that litter are being shown and at the CO show this last weekend, the girl - Lanie got her first points by going WB/BW both days. Congrats to Ann Roache, the Breeder of that litter!


04-14-2012 to 04-15-2012
Mac and I were at the Birch Run MI shows this weekend. We did not do anything, did not think we would, Mac is not looking his best at the moment, but I was there to see about a Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen (PBGV) puppy. I have always wanted one. (No, not getting out of Aussies!)
Her name is Cassie:


04-07-2012
Carol and her husband Mark were at the Concord NC shows this weekend. Carol was showing Cocoa (Temora I Should Cocoa!) and Mark was showing Sunni (Temora Come Spirit, Come Charm). The Charlotte Observer took some photos, they all look wonderful!



03-23-2012 to 03-25-2012
Secret (Temora I Won't Tell) was in a show in Camrose Canada.
She was BOB, BOW, WB on both Friday and Saturday. According to Michelle Whitehead who handled her, she showed very well every day. Her freestacking was very good and she didn't try to jump off the table after the exam so that is an improvement. (Sounds like a typical aussie if she is jumping around like a pogo stick)
Congratulations to Carol, Michelle & Secret!

Belated news from 03-03-12
Sheila Stoddart went to Newton Aycliffe 50th Anniversary Show, here is what she had to say:
Derby (Temora's Photo Finish) whom I co-own with Julie Seaton was BPIG.
Thanks to Judge Mr. Tom Johnston.
We came home with some lovely Rosettes and a cup as well! She had to challenge her "best friend" Alice (Millvalley Red Garnet) to win this and Alice was not thrilled with me handling Derby..suffice it to say that the feistiness of the red Aussie came out to the dismay of her handler Darren!! Needless to say both girls traveled home in the same crate!!

If you have an Australian Terrier, no matter WHERE you got him/her from, it is important that you complete the 2012 Health Survey. As a Breeder, I take the health of the breed very seriously. In order for the club to know what issues our dogs have, it is important for everyone to complete the health survey so we can keep on top of all things that affect our dogs! It does not matter where you live, everyone that fills this out helps us! So please, if you have an aussie, take the 5 minutes to go to the link below and complete the survey and help keep our dogs healthy!

News from the Homefront& Across the pond!
Mac & I were in Des Moines IA for a show. It was interesting to say the least!
There was a cattle show going on next door and so there were cow turds everywhere! On Saturday, Mac decided while I was talking to someone when I was exercising him outside, that he would ROLL IN THE COW POOP! Needless to say, I had to show in 1 1/2 hours, had no blow dryer, had to give him a quick bath as it was on his back and haunches. He went into the ring looking like a Cheeto Cheesepuff. Needless to say, we did not win that day!
Kiara, Mac's daughter was with me as well and had the time of her life! She definitely likes dog shows!
On Sunday, neither Mac nor I were into it, he was SEL dog. So no wins, but that is ok. Know now never to go to shows with cows! :)

Also heard from Leslie Hoy and Libby, here is what she had to say:
Every year, the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) posts national rankings of the top teams competing in each level of rally obedience. Rankings are calculated by points earned in competition; the higher the score, the more points it carries. We who compete in APDT rally eagerly await the list every year to see who among us made it.

I am so incredibly proud to tell you that Libby and I made the national list... we tied for 11th place in Level 1 !!!

Not bad for a little girlie who didn't know "Sit" not too long ago!

Across the pond Derby, who has been sent to Sheila Stoddart was in her first show!
Derby was BOB and took a Grp4 as well!
Congrats to Shiela and Derby!

Well, had fun on Sunday
Decided to go to Indiana for one day with Mac instead of making strudel with the family up north. Most people would say I was nuts, but what dog show person is not!!
Mac (CH Temora Ri Diercc) was the only aussie entered, so he won the Breed, then went on to take a Group 4!
All the Handlers that did not go to the garden were at this show, so it was not an easy group!
Tata (GCH CH Temora Taint She Sweet) was at the Garden State Terrier show with Leonardo Garcini. She won the breed against 7 other aussies (that is assuming they all showed of course) and made the cut in the group!
Great day and even though it was a long drive and I forgot the time zone change when heading out, I now have by memory what I will stay to a sheriff when I get stopped for speeding!
Now we wait for tomorrow as Westminster is on as of today and the terriers show tomorrow and Tata is entered!
Wish her luck!

From Leslie & Libby (AKC/UKC CH ALCH Temora Maid in America RN RL1 URO1):
On Sunday, 2/12, Libby and I earned our Rally Level 1 Excellent (RL1X) in APDT Rally under judges Stephanie Capkovic, Joan Klingler, and Kim Pike. To earn this, you need 10 additional qualifying scores after earning the Rally Level 1 title. All her scores were over 200, so she also receives an Award of Merit certificate. And we get a big purple and lavender rosette! Three trials make for a very long day, but she did a wonderful job.


2-2-2012 to 2-5-2012
Tata (GCH CH Temora Taint She Sweet) is down at the GA shows with Leonardo Garcini.
Thursday:Best of Opposite
Friday: Best of Opposite
Saturday: Best of Breed!
Sunday: Best of Breed!

I was in LaCrosse WI having dinner with Jim, Nicole, Jeff and Opa & Oma to celebrate Nicole's birthday. Wonderful dinner and I enjoyed spending some 'quiet' time with the husband. That was until the parties started as there was a couple tournaments going on and the different teams were staying at the same hotel as us!! High School kids high on wins means no sleep for the old folks! :)

Also in the news:
From Leslie & Libby (AKC/UKC CH ALCH Temora Maid in America RN RL1 URO1):
Libby not only qualified, but placed in Friday night's Teacup agility trial at Bella Vista Training Center in Lewisberry, PA. We competed under judge Wendy Fogarty to earn our first leg in Standard with a first place and our first two legs in Intermediate level Games with a first and a third. I was thrilled with what she did and it felt like we're finally becoming a team. Big thanks to our teachers Pat and Stuart for all their help!
Congrats to both of you!!

From Allison & Tilda( Temora Waltzing Matilda LaRoo OA OAJ): (Tilda is Libby's daughter)
We were at another agility trial yesterday. We didn't qualify in either run. In Excellent A Standard we had 2 refusals, 1 wrong course, and 1 fault. The fault was that Tilda hit the triple bar jump's bar/bars. The refusal was that she didn't go in the tunnel the first time. That could have been my fault, I'm not sure. I did something I didn't want to do, so I don't know if that is why or if she just decided not to do it. But the wrong course was for sure my fault :) I went to the wrong obstacle. And the second refusal was that she went by the weave poles the first time. Our time was 69.12 out of 72 sec. It actually wasn't too bad of a run.
In Excellent A Jumpers w/ Weaves we had a very nice run!! Just had two knocked jump bars though. We made good time too: 37.68 out of 51 sec!

Even though you did not qualify, it sounds like you are having fun and that counts too!
Congrats on your times Allison & Tilda, that second run was pretty fast!

Also on the Homefront, Tilda (Temora Waltzing Matilda LaRoo NA NAJ)was in an agility trial with her young owner Allison.
This is what she had to say:

Yesterday we were at an agility trial. We ran Excellent A STD first. We NQ'd; Tilda knocked the bar/bars on the triple bar jump, missed a jump, and did a fly off on the teeter. Our time was 70.07 out of 75 seconds.

In Open Jumpers w/ Weaves we qualified, got first place, and got our OAJ title!! Our time was 40.35 out of 45 seconds.

Congratulations Allison & Tilda!!

Note in Regards to the National in May/June:

To ALL Aussie Lovers:

As the Hospitality Co-Chair and a member of the Gateway Terrier Association, I hope to see you and your Aussies at the Rally trial being held Thursday, May 31, 2012. Very nice prizes are being offered, including a really special prize, described below, for novices.

HIGHEST SCORING AUSTRALIAN TERRIER IN RALLY NOVICE A or B
- entry fees paid for ALL entries for that dog during the week in (obedience/rally, earthdog, coursing, & conformation) - offered by Heather Rife DVM

For those of you attending the National, if you have not tried Rally before, I hope that you will consider learning about it so that you can join us in Rally. Even if your dog has a Rally Novice title, as long as your dog doesn't have an Advanced leg, you can enter that dog in Novice B. First- through fourth-place rosettes will be awarded to dogs placing in the Novice classes, and a green qualifying rosette (not a flat ribbon) will be awarded to all Aussies that obtain a qualifying score in any Rally class. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have all Aussies in the placements? That would be a great photo opportunity.

Rally is very welcoming and laid back compared to Obedience. Also, scoring is not as rigorous as that in Obedience. Novice is performed on a loose leash, and you can talk to your dog as much as you want, giving praise and encouragement. Emphasis is on fun and excitement for the dog and handler. The dog and handler complete a course of numbered stations with the dog at heel, on the handler's left side. A course map is available for you to study prior to judging. Handlers walk the course without their dog prior to the judging. If you can sit and down your dog for a brief period of time, chances are you can be successful in Rally. Multiple verbal commands and/or signals, using one or both arms and hands, are allowed. The qualifying rate is high. If your dog does not have a reliable sit and down, consider starting training now so that you can join us in Rally.

I started taking a weekly class in October. We went to a show-n-go the Sunday before our first trial and at our first event, Toni earned two qualifying scores. Taking classes was an easy way for me to learn the signs and how to perform them; however, classes are not necessary. Consider going to watch a Rally trial or a show-n-go. Join us at the National, try something new and HAVE FUN!

Mac was Best of Breed on Saturday and Sunday.
He made the cut in a strong terrier group on Saturday. He showed beautifully and I was very happy with him.
