COURSING ABILITY

The AKC Canine Partners program has the second and third mixed-breed dogs to earn the Coursing Ability Advanced (CAA) titles for qualifying 10 times! 

They are Woodacre's Little Big Man CAA ("Rusty") and Woodacre's Polka Dot CAA ("Dot"), both owned by Jacqueline Phillips of San Leandro, CA. They finished their titles on Oct. 29 at a Coursing Ability Test hosted by the Basenji Club of Northern California in Hollister, CA.  Rusty was adopted in July 2010 from a shelter in Southern Oregon. "Rusty loves Lure Coursing and started running full courses almost immediately after he was adopted," Phillips said. "He also competes in all-breed straight racing and has completed two titles. Rusty has started beginning obedience classes and finds the stays to be the most difficult, but loves the recalls," she said.  Dot was adopted in October 2008 from a shelter in Weaverville, CA. She had been surrendered to the shelter with her seven 1-week old puppies. She was estimated to be around 3 years old, which would make her around 6 years now. "Dot LIVES for Lure Coursing," Phillips said. Dot also competes in all-breed straight racing and has completed two titles.

Rusty Auditions for Part in local "Annie" Play!

Rusty Auditions for Part in local "Annie" Play!
Tri-Valley Repertory Theatre
September 24, 2011
Pleasanton, California

Rusty auditioned for the part of Sandy for a local play of "Annie." 

They had me take Rusty to the stage and see how he felt on the stage and to make sure he was not afraid. Then they wanted to see a "down" and a "sit" and a "stay" to make sure he had the basics. 

I received a note two weeks after the audition and the part went to another dog who auditioned.

"Thank you for auditioning for ANNIE.  The decisions were difficult and I am sorry to tell you that we will not be able to cast you in this current production.  Thank you for sharing your time and talents with us.
Warm Regards"
