Spellcast Believe We Are Magic, STAR Puppy, CGC, TKN, VSWI, BTD "Pixie"
Pixie is the half sister to my beloved Bodhi, through their sire CH Cedarwood's Rockin Good Thyme. I went to Spellcast and met their dogs and I was so impressed. I was excited to be able to get her, and I am so grateful to Spellcast Labradors for the opportunity. I really couldn't be more pleased with Pixie so far.
She has been an absolute pleasure to train. She is smart, funny, and full of life. She loves to learn and work. She is brave, she has plenty of drive, she loves to try new things. She took her first leap off the big dock during a competition and jumped seven feet. Not bad for her very first try! She lives for the water and is a retrieving machine.
Pixie is a tracking dog! I could see her using her nose so I did a little tracking training with her and she is a natural. She just passed the Beginner Tracking Dog test through ASCA. Perhaps one of my proudest moments on this track was that she found some animal bones alongside her track. She sniffed them and then went back to work of her own accord and finished her track! That's some work ethic for a 10 month old puppy.
She is in training for service work alongside her brother, Bodhi.
We know through Embark testing and testing of her parents that Pixie is genetically clear for all heritable disorders that can be tested for through DNA in labradors.
She has had OFA Prelims with passing results: Normal/Fair. We will repeat when she is 24 months. She is a super hardy, healthy dog. She is very active, sound, and never has an upset stomach.
Here is her 11 mo stack photo:
