#2 2015 Canadian Straight Racing Silken Windhound!
It's my brother Kohl! He's up here in this funny cold, white stuff too!
Cher was an affectionate puppy. She would put her paws around our necks and reach
out a paw to touch your face. She has became a very sweet adult. Cher lives with Lisa
& family of Astraeus Silken Windhounds in Canada and is co-owned by Starfyre. Cher
is a party girl but she loves her daddy. Keith was quite worried about this when she went
to Canada but she quickly made her "spot" in the lap of her Canadian daddy!
Cher enjoys many activities and obtained her ISWS Championship at the 2014 Ohio
Classic. She has been branching out and learning new activities. Cher had a foundation
in obedience, rally, agility, scent discrimination and lure when she went to her forever
home. The week I took her there, Lisa had a scent work class two days after my
departure, and Willow was in season, so she took Cher in Willow's place. Lisa said she
worked with Cher in her backyard before class for 15 minutes on Wintergreen and
Cher performed in the class like she had been taking nose work all along.
Last year when I visited, neither Cher, nor Kohl, had done any agility since they were
pups here with us. We went to an agility match and took Sahara, Cher and Kohl. Both
Cher and Kohl could have had qualifying courses in a competition, save for the weave
poles, which were new to them. It was amazing to see that a puppy's foundation training
stays with them. We are very fortunate to have been able to put our special little lady
with such a wonderful family.
The two videos below are of Cher. In the first, she is featured as one of the puppy stars in the puppy obedience/agility/scent video and in the second, Cher rekindling her love of agility games July 2015 visit. The third video is from when Dior & I visited in
