If only we'd stop trying to be happy we could have a pretty good time. ~Edith Wharton

 I find this so true, with agility, life and everything else. Sometimes you need to just take it all in your stride and allow yourself a second to enjoy the proc world aness. We are all chasing a similar dream in the agility world and sometimes we are trying so hard we forget what its really about.

I have really enjoyed hearing from Jon and Rock recently as well as Dan &Ditto. They seem to have such lovely, natural fun with their pups - you guys are a pleasure. Both G2&3 handlers yet inspirational. I have also seen some great progree from Zing recently, have loads of contact with Dave with Boss and I continue to have regular contact with Brooke.

Other pups are also making great progress I hear and I personally cant wait to see some of them out and about at shows :)

Loving being a part of what some of you are up to and immensely pleased with our lucky Devongems homes.

Fiji is growing up fast :) A bundle of fun :) she is possibly the most gorgeous creature on the planet ;);)

Whatever you are, be a good one - Abraham Lincoln

If only someone could tell Fiji this!

I am in love with this pup, mainly because she is just the prettiest thing alive (I AM NOT BIASED) and she has fitted in really nicely except for her cat fettish - the cats think she is hilarious, she thinks the cats are sheep!

The other Devongems are working hard at the moment and Spring is in the air and I have to say everyone is feeling rather positive. The Devongem HQ are really coming together.

On another note we are having Susan Garrett coming to stay - oh we have our work cut out here, it is a hive of activity and we are constantly trying to improve Bowerland.

Hoping that you are all having a lovely start to the Spring,

“Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.”

I am definately proud of the pups progress :) It is lovely having litters with some great owners who love their pups and the best bit has to be the pleasure of training some of these guys :) I honestly love that bit. Above is Brooke and below is Rock. Fern was at Stretcholt with Cove too and I have also seen Rhyme at Bowerland and Newhall and Ditto too - Dan is hoping to bring her to Bowerland too sometime to work on play and motivation - NOT that she needs it she is MAD! She is definately the most confident pup I have bred! Zing is now weaving and Devo was down last week looking very grown up - Mark is aiming high this year.

Below is Brooke jumping full height - she is so pretty - a perfect mix of Popi and Reef.

Finally a picture from Lesley Huggins of Rock playing :) You are doing a fab job Jon :) I am lucky to see Rock 4/5 times a week - from puppy class to him having a family visit - thankyou Jon - it is a pleasure.
