Boomer's Photos and his offspring:

On 2/1/03 "Reilly" (Boomer X Bubbles) earned his third qualifying Novice Obedience Score (4th time ever in the ring) to earn his CD obedience title at the Seattle Kennel Club (all breed) show. He was also the third highest scoring dog (out of 20), which earned him a third place ribbon. I will send you a copy of the official photo once it is ready.

The spectators were all very taken with Reilly (he is just a very sweet dog, and his face/head draws a crowd), and it was nice to get so much positive feedback about him. He is in 7th heaven right now.


Linda and Dale,

Reilly earned a qualifying score and 1st place in Open A Obedience at the PSLRA Specialty held on Whidbey Island, Langley, WA today! This was Reilly's first time in the Open ring, and it was great to have such a nice performance and earn the 1st CDX leg at the specialty.

Reilly's Junior Hunt Title

Hi there, Reilly is now officially

Black Rock Life of Reilly CD, JH, CC, CGC! (Boomer X Bubbles)

Reilly finished his JH title with style at the Oregon Retriever Trial Club held at Sauvie Island in Portland Oregon yesterday. He had 4 very nice retrieves and received compliments from the judges (Jim Morris and Phil Speer). After Reilly's first retrieve, Jim said he really likes a dog that looks like it knows what it is doing. For all the attitude he gives me at times, it has never diminished his excellent marking ability and he marked those birds dead-on today. He also tried something new and delivered promptly to hand - he was very pleased with himself. Jim said Reilly reminds him of a dog he used to have.   The weather was the best I could have hoped for in mid-July. It was overcast with a nice breeze until about noon, and then the sun beat down hard (although the temp was a pleasant 74 degrees).

Reilly is really enjoying his tracking lessons and is making good progress. We have introduced turns and crosstracks, and he has not had difficulty with these. Our tracks are only about 150-200 yards right now (still using food too), but that is fine. He is still tracking on a short leash, so the next step is to track with a long line (they have to track 20 feet ahead of the handler at the test). We are going to be really busy in the next month and a half, so I am not sure how much time we will have for tracking practice, but we will get there eventually. Barb said that if reilly earns his tracking title, he will win the PSLRA versatility award. I entered Reilly in Open A at the PSLRA specialty August 1-2   Darlene
