About Liberty

 

Where do I begin with Liberty. . . when she was just a puppy she had an independent streak. More curious about the world around her and what a handful. Thankfully that stage didn't last long. As soon as she matured a bit we bonded. Ever since then the world started revolving around me. Even when I shower she has to be on the bath mat. My constant shadow.

 

She loves people but I can tell you her real motive is to get them to throw a toy for her to retrieve. Its one of her favorite games along with tug o' war. Around other dogs she will pretend they don't exist. Not your typical dog to want to meet and greet. She thinks more along the lines of there's a dog, they all come with a person - that person has a throwing arm and I have a toy. She's a very intelligent girl who knows how to sucker her way into your heart and play you for a fool. 

 

With Liberty's strong desire to please, her playful nature, and enthusiasm with everything we do has lead her to be a well rounded dog. She excels in agility, frisbee and rally. She has shown amazing potential with herding. Obedience is not her forte due to her love for barking while working but she is very obedient and is one of my most trustworthy dogs. To this day she's never done anything wrong worth remembering. She obtained her International Championship no problem, and finish her AKC Championship in April 2015.

4/18/15 Libby took Winners bitch at the zolfo springs show on saturday earning her a 5 point major under judge Mrs. Arlene F. Benko. She is now officially an AKC Champion! Seeing as she finished today we pulled her Sunday to give our other two girls entered room for a win and my hands were too full to move her up to breed.

 

9/3 - 9/5/14 Libby earned her XF (Excellent FAST) title on wed's agility trial. Thur she gained her first leg in Masters FAST giving her 1 of the 10 legs needed for her MXF title in agility. You can view almost all of her 16 runs on YouTube. She did amazing with staying fast and on course. We just had an issue with taking on average 1-2 bars down each time. Going to work on this then start her up again in 2015. She hasn't done agility in a while with having litters of puppies so I was very proud of her regardless of a few bar issues. Then on Friday she had one entry in Rally Excellent B and earned her last leg earning her RE title! This week long competition was at the BCSA Nationals. 

 

6/23/14 Liberty had six beautiful puppies born today. The sire was Matty. Two males and four females. All black and white. This litter ended up needing colored collars due to the overall consistency among them. Such beautiful babies.

6/14/14 Today Libby came to the Tampa shows to have her CERF done which was Normal. She also did the CGC test and passed wtih flying colors and gave everyone a fun laugh to top it off. They had us tie a thick rope to the collar for the recall test and I left too much of a tab on the knot and she started playing with it like it was a toy on her recall. Had everyone including the evaluator in hysterics. Love this silly girl.
 
1/26/14
 We entered only one day this weekend at an obedience trial. Libby earned her 2nd leg in Rally Excellent B taking 3rd place. I'm very proud of her.

 

10/19/13 Liberty had her second litter today. Sire was Action. Two boys and four females. All black and white. Liberty did a fantastic job. She's a wonderful mother. 

9/14/13 We have done some flyball training in the past but unfortunately I haven't had the most experienced of trainers. This is a sport I've never competed in yet, and frankly don't know too much about, but hope to soon. After moving to the west coast of Florida I've found a nice training club with experienced instructors in flyball. Great to know they are continuing their education with seminars. As I take the class with Angus I'm also applying it to Liberty at home. We have found she is a Righty and currently working on our swimmers turn to prepare for the box. Curious to know who will be faster? Liberty or her son Angus? Only time will tell.

8/22 & 8/24/13 We drove over 10 hours to North Carolina to visit with family and have Liberty bred to Action. They had two successful live mating's and we'll hopefully know soon if she is pregnant and expecting her second litter of pups.  

6/13 - 6/16/13 I entered a 4 day agility trial in Arcadia, FL. Libby earned her 2nd leg in Excellent FAST and her 3rd leg in Open Standard earning her Open Standard (OA) title! Very proud of Libby considering we have been out of practice for so long and have not shown in agility since February 2012! It's been hard to find the time after giving birth to my son, but now that we know what we need to work on we look forward to our training and future shows together.

4/21/13 Libby competed in a 60 weave pole challenge. It was a lot of fun and we had no idea how she would do being we've only ever done 12 poles. She surprised us like always and came in third place with a time of 25 sec! we are so proud of her! We have added the video of her run below and it can also be found on our Youtube page.

10/12/12 Libby earned her RA Title with a 1st place then went on to earn her first leg in Excellent level with a 1st place as well! So proud of her! Not bad for having not trained in over 9 months! Talk about winging it!
