I got a Mini Me!
Scusi would have been a great dog to breed, as her temperament is the best towards adults, children, any type puppy or adult dog and her work ethic incredible. But alas it would be too hard for me to whelp a litter, so I did the next best thing. When a good friend’s (Paddy Warner), adorable Aussie (Kippy) had a litter, I found my next puppy, one to have another journey with and a companion for Scusi. Meet Tinseltown Electric Speedster, aka Tesla. She looks like Scusi and her personality is very similar, outgoing, loving people and willing to learn everything. The two get along incredibly so life is good. Let’s see what fun things she will do in her lifetime.

On August 24 at age 4 ¾ months old, Tesla earned her AKC CGC title from Linda Brooks, her first to hopefully a long list of achievements. She is so willing to learn and do what is asked.

Things were quiet as far as trialing until the end of April when I entered Tesla in AKC Agility and the end of May in ASCA Agility, jumping at 16” until she is more experienced, then will go up to 20”. Soon she earned her ASCA Novice Gamblers Ace title GSA-N, AKC Novice Fast Pref title NFP, Standard Pref title NAP, and NADAC Outstanding Hoopers Intro title O-HP-I. Titles # 24 to 27
In Sept AKC offered a Virtual Scent Work class, so my friend Linda and I changed venues, read up on the rules, placed certain items hidden throughout the home and yard, videoed our runs and achieved the Beginning VSWB, the Intermediate VSWI and the Experience VSWE titles. What fun this was to partake in and Tesla loved the challenges. Titles #28, 29, 30.
Then in Nov back to ASCA agility earning the Novice Ace Jumpers JSA-N, Novice Ace Regular titles RSA-N & Novice Ace Gamblers Outstanding performance GSA-N –OP titles. For not having any formal training, she is doing a fabulous job, although very excitable, jumping on me, herding me when I run or get behind her, but has great potential, many parts are super duper. Started classes at Jump City and with Olga, so that will help our game. Dec earned her AKC Novice Jumpers Preferred title NJP and her first leg in Open Fast. Title #31 to #34
