Ursa (Celhaus Ursa Minor) at 1 year 8 months
Look for photos of Ursa working at the Dave Kroyer seminar here, September 16-18.
(Photos from Sunday’s seminar will be posted once I get them edited.)
ON 11/24/22 (no photos): “Reporting from the nosework trial in Salt Lake City. The weather has changed every five minutes today, from blizzard to sun. Yesterday was more rainy than today. Judge Caroline from Texas can’t believe it. Ha! Ha! We beat the “B” level dogs – we had the shortest time of all the Advanced dogs! Yes, 6 Q’s out of 5 runs! In advanced containers he took first place both times. In Novice exteriors he got 3rd and 7th places. In Novice Vehicles, he took 1st place both times.”
Ursa came to Sheridan October 7-9 to compete at our nosework trial. He needed 1 Q to finish his Novice Containers title and did that in style, with a time of 8.7 seconds, which gave him a first place. He moved up to Advanced Containers for the afternoon trial and again aced it in 8.3 seconds, which also earned him a first place. Way to go, you two!
Ursa and Scott continued to do well the next two days. In all, they qualified in all 6 runs, going home with their Novice Exterior title (placing 3rd & 7th) and Novice Vehicles title (placing 1st both times).
Ursa at 1 year 5 months
We went up to the lake yesterday after work to get a respite from the heat. It was so nice, about 10 degrees cooler than town and no chance of overheating while playing swim fetch and riding in the boat.“

Beadie (Celhaus Ultimav Udo) at 1 year 1 month
Name Story: “Ultimav Udo – which depending on what your web search returns for what these two words mean in German – it’s either ultimate power of the wolf or ultimate power of the home. We do not doubt she will live up to both names. Her call name is “Beadie”, which derived from a character in the HBO series The Wire, which takes the viewer through the complicated nature of the drug trade and the politics that come into play from the streets, to the police force, to the actual politicians. In the second season of The Wire, a port authority officer, Beadie Russell, uncovers a shipping can with a hidden compartment carrying thirteen dead women who were being trafficked. Dark, I know, but stay with me! Beadie, who was essentially a patrol officer, develops into a savvy detective who assists a talented team of police in solving the case. We had the name picked out before meeting any of the pups in the event we went home with a girl. We feel like the name couldn’t be anymore appropriate due to her response to the cadaver test. Is it too aggressive to claim kismet? We don’t think so.”
“Beadie is doing really well, and we are starting her in more classes for agility and are hoping to get our good canine citizen graduation soon. She has made a ton more friends as she is walked with a few other dogs during the day and we are taking her running with us. She has zero problem keeping pace and has endless energy, so we keep an eye on her to make sure she isn’t over-exerting herself. She weighs ~66 lbs and is filling out nicely. She is just the sweetest dog and we are so grateful she loves all people and animals – maybe just a little bit too much. We get lots of compliments on her. Here are a couple of pictures of her stalking squirrels, her one true passion, at the park on a long leash.
