Chatham Show...we re-finshed Naughty`s Championship (Error in the point count when her title was completed last summer) on the Friday with WB and Best Opposite over specials (4pts). Becca went to her first CKC show Saturday and Sunday and earned WB x 2 & BOW for 3pts
Mister and I attended the Eukanuba Breeder`s Classic with Wendy Haddrall of Hellwigg`s. Teams of dogs were entered (3-5 dogs per team) we were there with Ch Hellwigg`s Fighting Bourukai handled by Ron Peet, Ch Hellwigg`s Freedom Flyer handled by Darrell Brewer, Ch Hellwigg`s Let Freedom Reign handled by Jenn Somogyi. What a beautiful team, all dogs stacked and gaited together, we made it to the top 15 out of 60 teams!! Fabulous venue for breeders to show off the consistency and quality of their breeding program!
Freya (Hellwigg`s MaknMagic at Safice) came home...an independent, lively ball of fluff, thanks to Wendy Haddrall for entrusting this wee one to our care....watch for her over the next year!
UKC – Becca went WB & completed her UKC Championship with a group 3, Snake earned a Best Novice Puppy in Show at 14.5 weeks.
Sarnia Kennel Club Ice (Ch Appleridge's Ice Princess CGN, CGC, HIC) went to her first Rally Show. We completed our Rally Novice 3/3 with only handler errors. We earned placements in each class, but the bonus was the Perfect 100 in the fourth trial and first place/high score!!!
We went to our first ever UKC event in Erin Ontario with the Maple Leaf Kennel Club. Becca (Safice Kubistraum Quebec) went to her first show ever. Becca earned several points towards her UKC Championship and a Reserve Best inShow!!! Wow what a great start!!! Swindle (Safice`s Fast and Loose) went the UKC show and entered as a Novice puppy, just under the 6 month mark (UKC does not do puppy competitions in the show) and earned a Best Novice Puppy in Show!!! Talk about a fabulous weekend!
Safice`s Emerald Isle gave birth to a lovely litter of 5 (3 boys 2 girls)...sadly I let my husband name them and they are all named after wrestlers....yes...even the girls!!!
At the KW show Ch Superlative’s Too Sexy for You CGN earned her Rally Novice title in one day! Great job for the little GP who could!
