UpDog en Couleurs 2017
30 septembre au centre multiactivité de Wentworth-Nord
Last year Stéphane and I talked about having an UpDog competition in the Laurentians, but there were moments that I doubted it would happen. But it did and I couldn't have done it without the help of my husband and the municipality of Wentworth-Nord. I would also like to thank all of the participants who made the trip up north to play! Even though I didn't play with my dogs for this competition, I still had a great time because of all of you. I hesitated for a long time to get involved in competitions, but am glad that I finally did. What a fabulous group of people, supportive and such great sportsmanship.
Of course I would also like to thank our main judges Heather and Armon, our line/zone judges Joanie & Daniel, and others that s
tepped in when we needed them (Viviene, Dominique (Doum), Charly, France - I hope I'm not missing anyone), our timer Steve, our youngest daughter Christina and her friends Jade& Erin, Chantale, and our photographer Marielle. Thank you also to Josée & Dominique for bringing their banners and the extra equipment that I was missing. And I must not forget our oldest daughter Brianna & her friend Stephanie who did some mega puppy sitting. A big shout out to Mother Nature who gave us a beautiful day despite holding back on the colours.
We are very thankful for our sponsors J.L. Brissette Ltée, Progix Alarmes and Chic Choc Canin (Fromm & Purebites), as well as AccroCanin, Centre Canin CAF, Isabelle Frenière, Centre Canin l'Étoile Filante, Chico Boutique d'Animaux, Lorraine Grenier, pastelliste animalière, Les moulées Guénette, et L'Arche de Noé.
I am already looking forward to UpDog season 2018! See you all then <3 :)
