Star and me

Star and I earned his Beginner Novice title with second place in Beginner Novice B at the Irish Setter Club of Colorado obedience trial on August 16, 2013! He is now Realta’s Starry Starry Night RN BN HIC CIG. Star_BN His heeling was abysmal. I need to prepare him better for heeling in the ring. It’s like he loses his mind when doing the heeling pattern and the Figure 8. Strange. He did great on the rest of the exercises.

I’m very proud of my Star.

My osprey photo

It doesn’t get much better than this sometimes. Tuesday, August 13: Found out that my osprey photograph took second place in the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program’s 2014 Calendar contest – out of 100+ entries. The same day: Gary Lefko, admin of Colorado Birder ( put my osprey photo on the website banner with a photo credit. He interviewed me and made me Featured Colorado Birder. That’s some rarified air; you should see the photos other Colorado Birders post there.Image
