Northern Alberta Canine Association Show

Tinbie had a very good two days at the NACA show in Edmonton. We ventured into the obedience ring for the first time, for rally obedience. He was a little unfocused at times, but pulled it together enough to qualify in both novice trials, with a 4th place in the 2nd trial.

In conformation he was the only flat-coat entered and there were many lovely sporting dogs. However, on Saturday he was awarded a Group 3rd under judge Cindy Vogels! This win gave him another 110 top dog points and he is currently the #3 flat-coat in Canada.

His half-brother, Ripley, was also entered in rally for the first time and qualified three for three, gaining his rally novice title and a 3rd placing. It was his owners' first time in the rally ring as well!
Cava came along for the experience and enjoyed socializing with dogs and people at the show.


  1. I was so sad to have missed Cava when I visited. Maybe next time. Lacey promises not to "go" in the pool next time.

  2. Way to go, Tinbie...lovely pics of a handsome boy!Pretty smart in rally too. Congrats to Ripley also.
