Introducing myself and Visa
« on: November 19, 2005, 09:21:41 pm »
Hi everyone. :) My name is Jordan and I'm an 18 year old dog groomer from Kelowna, BC, Canada. I have a 2 year old Belgian groenendael, Attra Dea's Credit Approved HIC, "Visa." She is a showdog and we are currently taking agility lessons. We are starting competitive obedience next year and have our canine therapy screening next year as well, so therapy might be something we'll get into. We are also going to a herding clinic next year. She took her Herding Instinct Test this year, passed, and obtained her first title. Her first show was this year as well and she took Best of Breed and a Group 4th. We also have our first flying disc competition next year, though it is not for points. Hopefully we will start schutzhund and rally-o in 2007. Next year I'm getting a catahoula leopard dog puppy. I will have my hands full for sure!

Here are a couple pictures of Visa..
This is the one that we're entering into the Dogs in Canada Annual..All of these ones were taken at the beach behind my house..



Here are two at home..



Hope you like the pics. :)

She is stunning.  I took on a belgian terverun for about six months helping train him for shutzhund.  Unfortunately i only took him temporarily while the breeder went out of the country.  They are gorgeous dogs and have quite alot of drive.  Im Amber.  I am owned by five dogs.

Hello and Welcome!!

She is sooo gorgeous.  I love belgian shepherds, and the groenendaels are my second fav, closely following the tervurens.  I love the name Visa, how inventive..... .............. she didn't put you into debt, did she?  ;)  You certainly sound like you keep busy, I don't know how I would keep up with all that.

My name is Chris, and I am owned by a husky/shep female Keiko, and my great dane pup Gunther

Thanks everyone! I can tell this board has nice people. :)

Her name is Visa for a good reason! ;) When she was a pup, her breeder had both her litter and another litter at once. The first litter had just had it's shots and one of the puppies had a vaccine reaction and developed parvo. Unfortunatly the breeder went to the bad vet in town because it was closest to work and asked what she should do -- they told her to vaccinate the other entire litter. She did so, and the vaccines weaked their immune systems and all of the puppies developed parvo. Half of the litter died, and Visa's breeder spent over $2000 keeping the other puppies alive. So there is Visa, Cash, and Amex.

Hi Jordan and Visa!  I'm Paul, and I have 2 dobies, Darmok & Sasha.  Your Visa pictures are absolutely beautiful.  Sounds like you and Visa keep plenty busy!  :)  Would like to see some more pix of your dog doing her various things.   Welcome!
